[One] reviewer said the terrorist attack [in my book] was so simple, and that it was terrifying in its simplicity because you could see it happening tomorrow. He said ĎIf what Thorís writing about in this book happens tomorrow I will not be surprised at all. In fact, Iíd be surprised if what Thorís writing about doesnít happen.í
