Not as good as Silence of the Lambs but still very suspenceful.

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.

Thomas Harris is my favorite....

"A tale of international terrorism and psychological intrigue with frighteningly authentic characters and an all too-plausible plot that hurtles along at a breakneck pace. 'Black Sunday' is a mesmerizing debut - the novel that heralded Thomas Harris as a powerful and unforgettable new voice in fiction."
