Everything you need to understand or teach Black Friday by James Patterson.
On the morning of December 4, officials receive a recorded threat. The voice indicates that a firebomb will devastate the Wall Street Financial District. As a demonstration of what the terrorists can do, they detonate a bomb on the NY pier. They promise that the bombs in the financial district would go off at 5:05 p.m. Throughout the day, officials wait for another call - demands to be met or the bombs will go off. However, the day passes and at the time appointed for the bombing, those officials realize there's not going to be another call. The time passes, and some almost seem to believe it was a hoax, but the actual explosion happens at 6:30 p.m. on December 4. The problem for law enforcement is that they have no idea who the terrorist organization, known as "Green Band", is, and the group has made no demands.
