The first novel from the bestselling author of The Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal, Black Sunday is the story of Michael Lander, 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 U.S. President and the worst mass murder in history. Unless someone discovers what Michael Lander plans and can kill him first.
