Black Friday by James Patterson
Terrorists have blown up Wall Street, no demands, no negotiations and no clues as to who is responsible. Archer Carroll of the NYPD and Caitlin Dillion are tasked with stopping them before they bring about the financial collapse of the US. The only problem is no one knows who they are or what they want.
It is a well-paced novel so it is quick reading. There is enough character development that all the people feel real and you care about what happens to them. It is a little dated now but not to the point that it is no longer interesting. I wouldn’t call it heavy reading but it is entertaining. It has action, suspense and even some romance. There was a plot point added towards the end of the book that made the whole thing less believable to me but by then I was interested in knowing what was going to happen. There was also some weird use of italics. It put emphasis in some strange places and I didn’t know what the point of them was. But even with the few not so great points it is a fun read to pass a day or two.
