It was not the Russians doing this but the Communist Chinese. Long out of print, it may be a bit hard to find, but again, thanks to the elves at the local library, I was able to get a copy to read.

Author Robert Buchard uses actual Chinese officials from the era as characters in his narrative including Mao Zedong (Mao Tse-Tung ), Liu Shaoqi (Liu Shao-chi ), and Luo Ruiqing (Lo Jui-ching). While the story focuses on the oppressive governmental system of Mao's and Shaoqi's China, Burchard capably presents a system that no one is able to truly control. In such an instance, Colonel Ni is able to fully unleash his diabolical plans using his many years of training spies and playing political chess within the Chinese Communist Party's military and political elite. Originally in French, it's a short (inelegantly written) thriller about a Chinese plot to explode a nuclear weapon over New York, using an airliner as the delivery vehicle. The 9-11 terrorists weren't the first to think of using airliners as weapons. BruceAir Jul 25, 2006.

I wonder if the terrorists who hit on 9/11 may have gotten inspiration from this little book first published,I think, in the late 1960's.The mission involves destroying in midair an Air France flight from Paris to New York and substituting a similar plane with a nuclear device to take its place and come thru U.S. air defenses undetected to explode the bomb and destroy New York. The substitute plane was discovered thru fluke circumstances. But still succeeded. Incidently, once a full defensive alert was called all commercial flights in the U.S. were ordered to immediately land so as to prevent other simultaneous attacks.Note that this was a Chinese attack. Not Russian. Most of the story consisted of planning for the mission and political fighting for supremacy between ChiCom factions. This was an excellent read. Moved very quickly. I'm sorry the author was not more widely published.

Was really impressed with the speed of the shipment. Would have loved it better if picture of book matched the original cover but that cover is hard to find. Overall impressed.

This 200-page novel was written in 1970 and is squarely set in a political world where communism is still seen as the greatest threat to American society. In this case, a renegade colonel in the service of the Peoples Republic of China uses the horror and confusion of the historical Cultural Revolution to realize a plan of detonating a nuclear bomb over New York City. Author Robert Buchard uses actual Chinese officials from the era as characters in his narrative including Mao Zedong (Mao Tse-Tung ), Liu Shaoqi (Liu Shao-chi ), and Luo Ruiqing (Lo Jui-ching).

In such an instance, Colonel Ni is able to fully unleash his diabolical plans using his many years of training spies and playing political chess within the Chinese Communist Party's military and political elite. What becomes truly fascinating is that the story looks at a plausible terrorist attack on the United States just two decades before the actual events of September 11, 2001 in New York.

Thirty Seconds Over New York is an excellent book that portrays an eerily realistic situation of Chinese terrorists, in search if the downfall if imperialism, targeting American soil.

The resistance of the terrorists is lead by Colonel Ni, a pure bred terrorist who enjoys seeing the great and powerful fall to their knees. When growing up, Ni would burn down the houses and buildings of the Manchurian Nobles, and other landowners in the Yang Tse-Kiang valley. The fiendish acts of Ni were foreshadowing of the things he would do in the future.

A thing of Buchards writing that I did enjoy was the promptness in the story line. He never spent more then necessary time on a topic, making for an action packed novel. His great detail in the Thirty Seconds Over New York also gave me a good idea of the plane bunkers, aircraft, and other settings. Also, the planning of the book is phenomenal.

Essentially, the well-defined main character and excellent story line made a great novel. Buchard gives great life to his story and has written an action packed book, even with the disappointing clincher in the end. I would say that this book would appeal to most readers of historical fiction and science fiction; maybe readers of Michael Crichton also. I would give this book an eight of ten rating.
