Summary

When the game begins in New Orleans this Super Bowl Sunday...80,000 people had better get ready to die. The Super Bowl - where thousands have gathered for an all-American tradition. Suddenly it's the most terrifying place on earth....

Michael Lander is the most dangerous man in America. He pilots a television blimp over packed football stadiums every weekend. He is fascinated with explosives. And he happens to be very, very crazy. That's why a beautiful PLO operative has seduced him. That's why - on Super Bowl Sunday - the world will witness the bloody assassination of the US president and the worst mass murder in history. Unless someone discovers what Michael Lander plans...and can kill him first.

Well....

I had to actually restart this audio twice to follow the beginning of the story. It got better and I ended up enjoying it. One thing I did notice with this audio though was the sound quality was terrible. You could actually tell when the narrator had picked up on a new day of recording. Of course Ron McLarty is the best even if the audio sucked.

generic thriller, no twists

"Airport fiction" has its time a place. Books with the equivalent entertainment value of a Tom Cruise movie. I bought this book with that low expectation in mind. It did not deliver that low expectation. This is a generic thriller with no twist and 2 dimensional characters. Performance is good.

Black Sunday

This book was okay. Not great, but good enough to finish. Too many characters to remember, and almost none of them came to life. Most were mentioned in passing and played a small role, but then never came up again, or if they did, I didn't remember who they were. The overall plot was pretty good, and there was some suspense, but a lot of things were left unsaid. I give this book two stars simply because I liked the overall plot.
