Undercover security jobs at a theme park? Well, maybe. It is the world's largest, it says here.

And...Mulholland Books. A division of Little Brown. Who are owned by Hatchette Book Group, Inc. Almost as if there's some sort of consolidation going on in the publishing industry, or something.

Amazing, how many New York Times bestselling thriller writers there are whose names I don't even recognize.

It's a fairly thin book, he didn't really need to work so hard at eliminating transitions.

I guess you really might be able to get a list of the 5 people left in the park during an event like this. The park has much better perimeter security than normal places do.

The shooter type still has trouble maintaining relationships with family. But I'd expect family caught in an event like this to have different priorities than the combat people.

Some clever thinking on both sides, especially on use of costumes as disquise, and on the ways to identify hostages vs. hostiles.

I guess, in the end, this counts as a case of domestic terrorism (the orders, and the money, were American). Caused, as in nealy all such cases in the real world, by a Christian. So that's a nice bit of realism.
