I have to admit first that the premise didn't sound exiting to me, but when I found out the author of the Hannibal series had an earlier book I just head to read it.
Harris' style is already noticable here, although it is improved in later books. It is actually a more quiet book for most of it than one would expect from the premise. It is also very character driven, which I enjoyed. The character moments and the way Harris discusses these people are the best things about the book. They are multilayered and interesting in the sense that I didn't really knew which, if any, side I wished to succeed. Obviously, the good guys, but I didn't "like" them and the terrorists were more fascinating to read about.
Like expected, I didn't get that much enjoyment from the actual plot, but I don't think that that's the authors fault for the most part. It's just not my topic.
