This book reminds me of why I like well-written thriller/adventure novels. Meade describes a terrorist plot to destroy Washington, D.C. by Al-Qaeda terrorists using a weapon of mass destruction. Shifting between White House discussions about how to deal with the threat, the inner workings of the terrorist cell and the frantic FBI-led investigation to find the device and disarm it, Meade creates a realistic plot and believable characters.

After reading Meade's three previous novels I anticpated m

Kitabın başlarında Amerika'nın güya elinde bulundurduğu uydu teknolojisi hakkında iyi uydurmuş. Ben Tubitak'da uydu yapıyorum ve dünyadaki tüm uydu üreticileriyle irtibat halindeyim. Haliyle ne mümkün ne mümkün değil çok iyi biliyorum. Gerçeğe çok yakın yazıyor denilen Glenn Meade burada ağır saçmalamış. Neyse bunu birçok Hollywood filminde de sık sık gördüğümüzden artık alıştık.

Konu radikal dinci teröristler olunca müslümanlığı kötüleyip Amerikan propagandası yapar diye düşündüm ama yapmadı. H

The happy, fairy-tale ending, the explanationof a mystery, the solving of a crime and the victory of good over evil are all popular, redemptive features in books. We like them because they appeal to our craving for righteousness.

I had a few days off work so I indulged my love of redemptive closure by racing through this action-packed adventure novel. Like all good examples of this genre, the plot travels the globe charting the course of several key characters.

We follow events during a week that

it's well written but it's basically a season of 24 as a novel. nothing wrong with that admittedly but the tension and excitement is hugely diminished havng seen jack bauer deal with problems like this in half an hour. a good thriller just feels dated

Fast paced and simple to read. Enjoyable, with the only flaws being the ending felt rushed through and the characters having very little depth.

Author back to form after slighly disappointing Sands of Sakura, this book was apparently wrote before 9/11. Plot centres around terroists planning to bomb US, very good read.
