Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A by-the-numbers affair about a terrorist nuclear attack on the U.S., Bond's lackluster latest begins when FBI agent Helen Gray and U.S. Army colonel Peter Thorn arrive in Russia to investigate the mysterious crash of a Russian cargo plane that happened to be carrying a team of American arms inspectors. The local authorities try to make the crash look like an accident, but their thinly veiled attempts at deception fail to convince Gray and Thorn, who quickly find evidence of a hidden shipment of nuclear missiles and embark on a hunt that takes the duo across Europe, where they are betrayed by a high-level FBI mole, and eventually leads them hometo Washington, D.C., where a corrupt Arab prince is masterminding plans for a lethal warhead launch. An engaging, adventurous romantic couple, Thorn and Gray have a flair for high-risk solutions that pushes the pace in the second half of the book. But Bond spends far too much time in the first half following the missiles on their labyrinthine journey, and there's nothing terribly innovative or exciting in that part of the narrative or any of the subsequent plot twists. Readers who enjoyed the high-stakes hijinks of Gray and Thorn in The Enemy Within may find their curiosity piqued, but there's little in this tale to separate Bond's fifth novel from the flotsam and jetsam of the genre. June
Kirkus Reviews
Former naval military analyst and intelligence officer Bond, ex-collaborator with Tom Clancy (on Red Storm Rising) and now a spectacularly large-selling, spankingly reviewed technothriller author himself (The Enemy Within, 1996, etc.), slaps scenes into his computer like fresh magazine clips. This time out, he pits the bold archvillain Prince Ibrahim al Saud, a member of the Saudi royal family and perhaps the world's richest man, certainly its most dangerous, against US Army Colonel Peter Thorn and FBI Special Agent Helen Gray, who must stop the bankrolling billionaire's delivery of Russian devices onto American soil. But on a countdown to apocalypse, they find themselves being hunted. Will the Day of Wrath detonate? And how does Bond's plotting hold up? Well, you know, it's your typical fifth novel's divinely inspired terrorists—and they're not waving sparklers.

    A must-read for techno thriller fans

    I couldn't put this book down. The story line was realistic and made more believable by recent terrorist events. This was my first Larry Bond read, and now I am scouring the shelves for everything he has done. Like other techno-thriller novelists, Bond creates a scenario based loosely on historical facts, then winds us through a multi-tiered plot. Sure, the good guys win in the end, and yes the bad guys get what they have coming. But we expect that. The artistry is in the details. The characters are more than cardboard cutouts. We really do want to find out how they fare. In fact, we can hardly wait. Bond delivers.

    Outstanding as usual

    Bond is one of my 'must read' authors. They write it and I read it and this one didn't disappoint. If you like a fast-paced thriller you'll like this book.

    never a dull moment

    The second coming of Tom Clancy. A very detailed but inquiring story. Larry Bond has developed a sophiscated technique of capturing a readers attention from start to finish.

    Exciting historical mystery

    Henry VIII sits on the throne of England and has ignored the papal refusal to annul his marriage. He gets a divorce to marry Anne Boleyn and is in the process of setting up a church independent of Rome. His first step is to inventory the monasteries so that he could add anything of value to his treasury before he disbands them and sells the buildings. <P>One of his advisors, Nicholas Peverell is sick about the regal decision since the one nearest his manor home in Sussex was built by his ancestors and supported by him. The king is planning on visiting Nicholas on his way to Portsmouth but there is a conspiracy to assassinate His Highness. Nicholas doesn¿t know if the threat comes from, the defeated York supporters or a rebellious churchman but he knows he must keep his king safe if he wants to live. <P> Iris Collier brings the pageantry and culture of the era when Henry VIII ruled England to vivid life in her meticulously researched historical mystery DAY OF WRATH. The mystery itself is cleverly constructed and there are enough suspects to keep the reader guessing until the author is ready to reveal the killer¿s identity. The hero is a warm caring man who makes this work a touch above the well written sub-genre novel as the age comes alive as much as the who-will-do-it plot. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Not one of the best I've read

    The book seems to me to be very one dimentional. The villians have no motive to be doing what they're doing. They fall for the simpliest traps that the heroes come up with. I am very disappointed in the way this book is done. This was my least favorite book that Larry Bond has done. This would be a good book to stay away from.
