Why would I put a Hunter book on hold?? Writer of manly-man thrillers. etc. Then I looked at the jacket prose and saw that this one involves a group of Islamists taking the Mall of America (here called "America, the Mall") hostage -- on Black Friday, no less, the biggest shopping day in the country. Well, I grew up maybe 40 miles away from the mall, fly over it every once in a while, and so I had to read the thing. Altho it's been many years since I read "The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3", I remember it as being much more suspenseful than Hunter's book. The politix and posturing among the several American agencies gathered to deal with the threat was interesting, though.
