As terrifying as The Silence Of The Lambs in its own way, Black Sunday is written in the same gripping, intelligent-yet-pretty-implausible style as the Hannibal Lecter books but doesn't involve having old friends for dinner. It's the story of a plot by Al Fatah terrorists Black September to blow up the Superbowl in New Orleans (which incidentally was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina) and the Mossad Israeil agents who will go to any lengths to stop them from killing 80,000 people and the new President of the United States of America, and causing America to withdraw its support for the Palestinian cause.
In the wake of September 11th and subsequent al-Qaeda attacks, it can seem horribly realistic at times. Black Sunday isn't for the faint-hearted, but it's a riveting read and Harris' characterization is excellent.
