Reviews

This is the 1975 debut novel from Harris, who went on to write Red Dragon, The Silence of the Lambs, and Hannibal. Black Sunday pits an American Vietnam veteran of dubious sanity and PLO terrorist accomplices against a ruthless Israeli security agent and the FBI in a race to kill the 80,000 spectators at the Super Bowl, with the president of the United States in attendance. The plot (large-scale terrorist act perpetrated in the United States by an American) was considered somewhat improbable when first reviewed but is considerably less so today. The suspenseful and relentless action is adequately paced by the reading of actor Ron McLarty. Character development, perhaps necessarily, takes second place in this abridgment. An exciting thriller from a popular author, and a title that may be less familiar to many of Harris's current fans. Recommended for fiction collections. Kristen L. Smith, Loras Coll.
