They are planning to kill the president of the USA and He shows his willing to blast the blimp. She feels that Larden is not bluffing. She suggests his candidature to the terrorists as a reliable person.
He killed Najer but hesitated to kill Dahlia as well, in hotel with Najer in Beirut. He thought she was his slut. Afterwards, he regretted very much for not killing her.
Dahlia killed lots of people who would have intervened with their plan of mass slaying. But in the end when seeing approaching blimp in the air to the stadium he thought quick ad decided to use a chopper to intercept the blimp.
He with the FBI agent kills Dahlia and turns the blimp to the riverside near the stadium. Laden could detonate the charge but in that time the blimp was not on the stadium so the casualties were only Unfortunately, Mayor Kabakov was dead.
But he saved thousands of people. I have to say that I really enjoyed this book. This is a book about terrorism, fanaticism and retribution.
One has to read this book with an eye to how the world was in , when the book was first published. The Jews hate the PLO. Both hate with fatalistic fanaticism.
The war in Vietnam is over and there are a lot troubled veterans back in the USA. Michael Lander is one of these troubled vets. His goal is to fly a blimp packed with plastic explosives into the Super Bowl and kill himself along with 80, innocent bystanders.
Then there is the Israeli Mossad lead by David Kabakov. David Kabakov is every bit as fanatical in his hatred for the PLO.
With all this hatred death has to be inevitable. A man he has been chasing for years. The book is well written with lots of tension and pace.
Looking at the world today, forty years later, nothing has really changed. Highly recommended as a page turning thriller.

This book actually tells you more about the motives and feelings of the "baddies" than the hero's. It is a very Welcome to Thomas Harris first and stand alone novel about a terrorist attack on US ground.
It is a very classic terrorism plot in perhaps an old school thriller that keeps you interested until the last page.
The hero being an Israeli Intelligence officer on the hunt of the survivors of Black September who were involved with the Munich massacre who are this time aiming at the US because of their weapon deliveries to the state of Israel.
In the opening of the book we find Israeli commandos attacking the lord of Black September It felt like a flashback to the Spielberg "Munich" movie even if that one was filmed much later and we find out about the okay given to an attack on the Superbowl by the terrorists who were approached by an American combat pilot who became an POW and felt his live was destroyed by his government.
The baddies are more dimensional in their descriptions than the hero side of the story which feels like the average conflict between intelligence services.
Why 4 stars because like the early Lecter books Harris does show very much skill of telling a story which is difficult the put away.
It is a well written book and its subject is not that old style but perhaps very much more actual than we would like. I was glad to re-read this book as my paperback has long ago disappeared and I was glad to recover it Hardback version.
Some books leave a memory behind and you want to recover them to see if they were really that good. I felt not short changed at any moment, perhaps since I prefer the old style thrillers the seventies and eighties when live seemed somehow easier.
When your plot line involves a major terrorist attack, there are some plot elements which are unavoidable : the pace that builds up until the D-day, terrorists and law enforcement trying to outwit each other every step of the way, a couple of romantic flings on either side of the law and then the whole world goes to hell!
Black Sunday is no different and within the premise of the story, Thomas Harris brings the Israel-Palestine conflict to the heart of America.
When you set out to read this boo When your plot line involves a major terrorist attack, there are some plot elements which are unavoidable : the pace that builds up until the D-day, terrorists and law enforcement trying to outwit each other every step of the way, a couple of romantic flings on either side of the law and then the whole world goes to hell!
When you set out to read this book, don't think of this as a work by the author of Silence of the Lambs!
This would seriously dampen your enjoyment levels but if you think of it as another thriller by an author who is as yet unknown to you.
While the Israeli Mossad and the Palestinian Al Fatah battle it out on the streets of New Orleans, the American intelligence agencies are reduced mostly to bystanders.
The climax is not one that is not anticipated but still a cliff hanger. You will get a whiff of Thomas Harris's later work only in one character and his name is Michael Lander and that perhaps is the only place where the story moves away from the realm of cliche.
A decent enough thriller. The plot is to hijack the Aldrich Blimp, the novel's stand in for the Goodyear blimp, and convert it to what would essentially be a giant claymore mine.
Then explode this giant claymore at the Superbowl thereby killing and maiming multiple thousands of people. Sam Corley and David Kabakov race against time to stop this monstrous plot.
The novel attracted little attention until it was adapted into a John Frankenheimer movie starring Robert Shaw. Since then, several editions have been published.
It is one of only two Thomas Harris novels without Hannibal Lecter. It is a well written, tense and exciting novel featuring Thomas Harris' usual insights into his characters and life in general.
One of my favorites is this quote: "And then he realized that he loved the eagle better than the sheep and that he always would and that, because he did, because it was in him to do it, he could never be perfect in the sight of God.
Of course Christians know that we can never be perfect, but can be forgiven. View 1 comment. Yes it's a thriller, but it was disturbing.
I didn't like how the novel exploited the stereotype and made the terrorist, who were planning to bomb a stadium full of people watching the Super Bowl, to be Arabs.
The only twist was that they were aided by a Vietnam vet who "sold his country". There's some psychology in there, but overall, I didn't like how the Israeli agent was portrayed as the hero and the Palestinians were the terrorist who were getting their revenge by bombing 70, people.
Tha Yes it's a thriller, but it was disturbing. That's a cheap shot. View all 4 comments. One of those books I went ahead and paid for anyway.
One of those books that sat unnoticed on my shelf for months until finally I decided to get rid of it.
One of those books I just hadn't the heart to dispose of. Not without reading it first. I decided I would force myself.
Fuck it. Here it goes. This kind old man on the left created one of the creepiest, most original and somehow loveable psychopaths of a A Heartbreak Hipster Review This was one of those books I had no real interest in reading.
This kind old man on the left created one of the creepiest, most original and somehow loveable psychopaths of all time.
Even though the second one was pretty fucking disturbing. Anyway, I was well aware Black Sunday wasn't part of the Hannibal series.
However, I wasn't aware it was Harris's debut. That alone made it more interesting to me. I guess, in retrospect, I still had Stephen King stuck pretty far up my ass, because the writing in this book is fine.
Like any effective thriller should be, the style of this book is sharp, simple and straight to the point. No bullshit in other words.
There were some weirder lines that went a little too far with the imaginative imagery, turning what should have been basic descriptions into obscure, nonsensical pictures that would have had even Salvador Dali scratching his head.
Visual images that require you to gaze lopsidedly up from the pages, suck your thumb and say, "Now wait one cotton-picking minute.
I gotta take a moment to work this shit out". I guess I'm a bit of a nutcase when it comes to reading. My brain has this dysfunction that forces me to read certain lines several times over when it feels like fucking my life up.
Because of this, I always get very worked up when I discover, later on, that I've been interpreting something entirely wrong. Well, not long after reading Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird , I became quite the model for inner embarrassment and turmoil - of hitting the back of my head and pacing my bedroom - when I found out that "Ewell" was not pronounced " E-Well ".
That sounds like some goddamned medicine for indigestion or something. Anyway, for the most part the writing was good.
But let's get to the story. Shall we? It worked very similarly, I found, to Red Dragon. By that, I mean it took its sweet ass time to really get anywhere.
And one could be forgiven for calling it a pretty boring story for the first pages at least. However, let me refrain, in the most pretentious of manners, from turning this point into a criticism.
Before you get all steamed up and tell me I'm not your "master" or something, Quentin, old boy, I think all your movies are very well directed.
But then that's about all they really are. Call me an old lady, or an anti-Semite Nazi-lover. You can call me whatever the hell defines those detested freaks of nature that do not drawl over glorified violence, but I personally think your films are shallow in their depictions of human nature.
I mean, sure, human nature is fucked up. But people like you seem to celebrate rather than lament that fact.
The Wachowski Brothers: same thing. Go and mow down fifty policemen then tell me your motives were justified because you did it all in slow-motion.
I guess I shouldn't turn this review into a rant; I just wanted to give what I think is a pretty good example of how not to portray the lifestyle of what is, essentially, an evil person.
What Thomas Harris achieves, in taking his time to explore the main characters, is a group of people you don't feel much affection for.
Yet, at the same time, you are strangely invested in them nonetheless. But Harris does a great job in bringing their backgrounds to the forefront of their motivation for killing 84, civilians.
I wouldn't say their actions are justified, but there is a certain part of me that understands their need for such havoc. The book never really explains why the other terrorists are so bent on causing such tragedy, but they are interesting and easy to get a handle on while you read about them.
At this point in my experience of reading, Thomas Harris though definitely not the best, or my favourite has probably got the best tools in bringing his character to life.
Stephen King is also very good at this - as is Peter Straub. But Harris is the only author I've read so far, who can really deliver his exposition without boring his reader or weighing down his story.
While this novel isn't nearly as iconic as his later ones would be, I still think it is a fairly enjoyable one. With complex characters - I never actually mentioned the heroes, but they're pretty awesome too - a wonderful and interesting build-up, some effectively-handled moments of pure suspense, and a cracking conclusion, this novel is worth reading.
For what it's worth, I'm grateful to have not been able to reject this book without giving it a chance.
It was another decent book, by a more than decent author. But being the twisted bundle of depression that I am, there are still a few matters I can't quite put aside here.
Not without calling my ex-girlfriend at four in the morning and threatening to kill myself if she doesn't come over to assure me we still have a chance.
He must have been given this job as a desperate means to boost his confidence. Because I seriously lost count of the amount of fuck-ups there were in the editing.
I choose not to think Mr. Harris was to blame here. I mean, they were only little things, but who in God's, name can take.
Credit for t,his kind of editing? And while I guess it is unreasonable to pin this shit on the book, the concept of reading more than one thing at once did not sit too well with that nutcase upstairs.
And someone has to take the blame, right? I guess I could be like the British media and accuse the authorities for "not realizing sooner".
Or I could just go all out and accept the blame myself. But nah, it was Thomas Harris, I'm pretty sure it was him View all 11 comments. 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 multil 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.
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. Lots of tension and suspense in this debut by the author which was published back in The terrorism plot was realistic, though sometimes it did becomes mired down in the technical details of the plan, and the characters and their motivations were well drawn.
A good first effort though his later works were much more polished. A solid international intrigue thriller. The fact that it was written in did wonders for the context considering that I read it in This book was on the ball ahead of its time.
I think that though it is the more popular, it is clearly the less thoughtful or compelling work from Harris' career; it smacks of "pandering" as do the works of Brett Easton Ellis to the usual morbid American fascination with blood-and-gore.
That's what the high sales of that franchise say to me. Instead, I say the peak moment of Harris' writing career came with this novel, 'Black Sunday'.
Because its written with realism, the much more difficult task for the novelist. It was the most realistic novel of terrorism in its day; and in many ways still is.
At the time of publication, it was certainly head-and-shoulders above anything else anyone had ever done.
Comparable technical detail was found only in one other work, Frederick Forsyth's 'The Day of the Jackal'.
And that was it. Just these two titles. They held kingly court at the top of the hierarchy of s thriller fiction You used to see them in paperback carrels--distinctive from all other books--their tattered covers and well-thumbed pages indicating just how effective they were.
Just look at it! Its as memorable as the cover for 'Jaws'. Happily, both Harris' and Forsyth's tales were both turned into incredible, taut, tight, well-formed movie adaptations --both blessed with quality productions by two top directors--thankfully, reflecting the caliber of the books.
It was prescient to the state-of-affairs we tolerate today when every morning we awake, could find us confronted with yet another bloodbath in the headlines.
The book is archetypical; containing a plot so singular and vivid, that no one else can ever copy it; and yet universal.
We know that sooner or later something like this --stemming from the same raw elements--could always occur on our shores. Its not simply a 'product of its time' --as so many thrillers are.
The topicality in this thriller never goes away. It still makes people nervous and insecure. Yes, we are. The motives of the books' villains can't be brushed aside; Harris' vision faithfully reflects what's out there in the real world.
This novel is just one scenario of something which could conceivably occur at any time. So: 'Black Sunday' is simply unique.
Fiction which constantly straddles the junction between entertaining yarn and fearsome actuality. Its an important work; affording provincial Americans just the tiniest, briefest, glimpse of the international perspective.
The contrast between our placid homefront-- and that of the political struggle of distant peoples--is vivid and sharp. Sure, the action-rich plot is a nail-biter but there's this extraordinary extra dimension which underpins everything the entertainment.
As I asserted at the start of this review: this cogency makes it far more formidable than Harris' other thriller about a lone, wacko, cannibal.
It puts it in a class shoulder-to-shoulder with Best moment in the book? View all 3 comments. This is Harris' debut novel, and, as such, the writing stumbles here and there, but the story is exciting, deftly plotted, and surprisingly realistic.
The most amazing thing about this book, though, is that, other than the occasional use of a telex, nothing in the novel stands out as being particularly Although written in the early 70's, BLACK SUNDAY reads just like a season of the TV show "24," only with an Israeli version of Jack Bauer as the only thing standing between us and the terrorists.
The most amazing thing about this book, though, is that, other than the occasional use of a telex, nothing in the novel stands out as being particularly dated.
A very un-PC novel in this day and age, but remarkably prescient when one looks back on it.

Dahlia and Fasil, terrorists. Lander, the former POW who's turned his back on his country. The last 10 pages of this book are in my top 3 fictional literary chase scenes, along with those in "The Fifth Horseman" by Collins and "Darkfall" by Koontz.
Funny, these were all written between '77 and ' Maybe I'm just old? Thomas Harris has only written five books.
I had read four of them before picking up Black Sunday. Harris' only non-Hannibal Lecter novel, it concerns a plot to set off a bomb over the Super Bowl via an advertising blimp.
Black Sunday suffers in the same way that Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon do when read today in that Harris' books have been virtually strip-mined by Hollywood.
I'm not just talking about adaptations into television and film… I'm talking the very DNA of Harris' work has worm Thomas Harris has only written five books.
