    Two Minute Warning is a lesser known thriller from the seventies Made into a mediocre movie with Charlton Heston it was one of the first of it s kind It s a race to stop a lone gunman before he starts shooting into a stadium full of tens of thousands of people There are eight possibly ten characters that the story follows The story all takes place during the last thirty minutes of the Super Bowl It s probably one of several sources that directly ,or indirectly, served as the inspirati Two Minute Warning is a lesser known thriller from the seventies Made into a mediocre movie with Charlton Heston it was one of the first of it s kind It s a race to stop a lone gunman before he starts shooting into a stadium full of tens of thousands of people There are eight possibly ten characters that the story follows The story all takes place during the last thirty minutes of the Super Bowl It s probably one of several sources that directly ,or indirectly, served as the inspiration for the television series 24 as well as other thrillers that take place within a compressed period of time and a restricted location i.e Die Hard Typically I don t like novels that bounce from once character to another which Two Minute Warning does However in this case Mr La Fountaine got it right The story moves along at a very brisk pace and I found myself turning the pages eagerly Regardless of the start and finish dates below I actually read this novel today 01 05 15 in about two hours It s a very fast read, but an enjoyable one Keep in mind that the book was written in the early Seventies There are going to be details that date the book For example it s the Super Bowl and the L.A.P.D SWAT isn t there Instead there is a call out for SWAT when the sniper is discovered by a television camera As a matter of fact there are no L.A.P.D assigned to the game when the novel begins Somehow I find that hard to believe By the early seventies an event of that size would have had a significant police presence, but I chalk it up to poetic license I suppose that many readers wouldn t have thought of such a horrific event taking place back in 1974 Though for the life of my I can t imagine why considering that Charles Whitman in Austin 1966 , Mark Essex in New Orleans 1973 and other sniper shootings had taken place by then.In 2015 it will be harder for a reader to swallow Nevertheless it s obvious that the author did some research in writing this book I was surprised to comes across police procedural details that are portrayed correctly and ,even forty years later, haven t changed Technology yes, but much else has not Some of the observations about the profession are also dead on..even in 2015.The book is a product of it s time, but in other ways it s still very fresh Not a bad thriller It s sitting next to my copy of Black Sunday Seems appropriate
