I can't rate it -- I have almost no recollection of this book. That says something in and of itself, doesn't it? ( )

Great story, but poorly written (aside from a few noteworthy exceptions) and with way too much detail in areas that don't add anything to the story. It could be great if edited down from 700 to 450-500 pages. ( )

Stupid. That sums up, fairly succinctly, the entire theme of the story and this book. I'd be shocked if someone could provide an example of a literary cliche common to the thriller genre that wasn't included in this book. Every problem and mystery is conveniently solved by a friend in some random police force somewhere in the world. Every risk is resolved, no matter how dangerous, with barely a scratch (well, there was one broken leg). People are killed with hardly any consequences and the obligatory sex scenes are about as romantic as the average soft-core porn movie.
All that being said, the book is fairly compelling. It's a lot like your favorite bad movie, something that you intrinsically realize, by all objective measures, is a bad film, but you still enjoy watching (Mine is Point Break. I know it's a horrible movie, but come on, Keanu Reeves as an FBI agent?!). This is a bad book, it takes a decided turn for the stupid fairly early on and the ending (something you could predict before the halfway point of the book) is just damn silly. A dumb book, but didn't feel like it was a waste of my time. ( )

good Osborn Dr. — Paris — good

cryogenics

A thriller which weaves together three stories of international intrigue. In the first a doctor has to confront his father's killer, in the second a detective investigates a series of horrific murders, and in the third an international organization devises a masterplan of apocalyptic dimensions.

Day After Tomorrow by Allan Folsom
5 Stars

Day After Tomorrow begins in a Paris cafe where an American surgeon named Paul Osborn looks across the room and sees the man he thinks murdered his father thirty years before. Meanwhile, in London, a former Los Angeles homicide cop named McVey joins Scotland Yard to look into a series of decapitations involving a severed head and seven headless corpses. Osborn decides to hire a private detective to help him find the man he saw in the cafe. Eventually Osborn becomes a suspect in the decapitations. He and McVey also become involved with a powerful secret organization which seems to reach into every corner of Europe. The two plots (Osborn's father and the decapitated bodies) converge into a thrilling finale.

The action starts immediately and in many ways this book reminded me of a Robert Ludlum or Frederick Forsyth style of novel. The author weaves together a wide array of well-developed, interesting characters in an international murder mystery in a WWII/Nazi/modern-era setting.

I absolutely loved "The Day After Tomorrow". I was completely engrossed. It is action-packed for sure. The plot is carefully laid out so you find yourself guessing throughout the book as to who you want to trust and who you can't trust. The bad guys are truly evil.

On the down side, there is so much action and plot that sometimes it seems like there are too many characters and it can be a bit confusing. The plots are complicated but Folsom is able to connect them over the long run.

It was excellent story and had everything I look for in a suspense novel. It was well written with interesting characters. I had no problem with the length of the book and was sorry when I reached the end.

This is a novel, not a film. In particular, this novel has nothing to do with the 2004 motion picture The Day After Tomorrow directed by Roland Emmerich, and should never (again) be combined with that picture.
