The story had a too abrupt ending, and Maclean did not write the actual climax of the plot, just a hint of how it started and then it was over. The inspiration for the plot appears to be acknowledged by Maclean himself in his preface to the edition of the book where he describes his first experience of an earthquake while in California on 9 February The Sound of Thunder.

MacLean’s thrillers are older but still seem timely today. Really enjoyed this book – my only criticism is: The overworked FBI man. Lists with This Book. In some ways the book had to be read from a bit of a historical perspective, for example, cops resigning, then running their own investigation on a major terrorist threat outside the law wouldn’t really be getting congratulated in the middle of it, and the gentleman terrorist, who doesn’t really want to kill anyone is also a little far fetched.
