Reviews

"Terrorist leaves the reader ripping through the book to its finale, desperate to find out what happens. . . . [A] compelling and surprising ride."--USA Today

"A chilling tale that is perhaps the most essential novel to emerge from September 11."--People (Critic's Choice)

"Riveting . . . emotionally daring . . . Updike's ability to get inside the mind of his Ahmad . . . is what renders the novel credible and sometimes wrenching in its authenticity."--The Boston Globe
