California is still roughly to the north-west and, now and then, when the pressure between the two plates becomes too much, the North Pacific plate eases this pressure by jerking north-west along the San Andreas Fault and so producing one of those earthquakes that Californians don’t care so much about.

Home Alistair MacLean Goodbye California. That’s what I believe is happening in California here and now. And the frightening thing about it is that we have to remember that the Koran gives a Muslim a conscience-free hand to knock off anyone who isn’t a Muslim. Goodbye california, . 9. And if your conscience is free, what’s the difference between one and one million?

Goodbye California book. This is an odd occurrence for me; in regard to an Alistair MacLean book. It was so very boring!

Goodbye California book. Earthquake country,' said the Professor.

The view from the Sierras across the mist-streaked San Joaquin Valley to the sunlit peaks and valleys of the Coastal Range was quite breath-takingly lovely, a vista to warm the hearts of all but the. very sick, the very near-sighted, the irredeemably misanthropical and, in this particular instance, those who were held prisoner behind the grim walls of the Adlerheim

An obvious feature of all of them is they are all told in the third person – by an omniscient narrator

…until a criminal fanatic kidnaps a nuclear scientist and builds his own atomic bombs. If exploded on California's fault lines they could trigger off the mightiest earthquake of them all - killing half its population and dumping the entire city of San Francisco into the sea.

He has always been one of my favorite authors. But the books near the end of his career just don't make it. The main activity thru out the book, over and over again, is people getting a drink of whisky. Why would any author think this was interesting to the reader. You have a to very patient to read this book. It is work. The story line is very good, I was expecting a much better telling of this story line than I received. Anyone who was not a die-hard fan of Alistar would not make it thru this book. This is not Ice Station Zebra or any one of his books from the 60s. I ran into the alcohol obsession in another of his books, I think it was Floodgate. I recomend passing, unless you just love the authors other works.

I first read this book a long time ago. It has become a bit dated but is still a good story. MacLean writes a lot better than a lot of modern authors although this is not one of his better efforts.

Great story. The hero saves California!

This is a quick paced, interesting novel that was written and takes place in the 1970's. Its a novel about terrorism by a weird sect of Muslims in the US, written before 9/11 was even dreamed about. I really liked the characters in this novel....the author really made them come alive.!!

Alistair MacLean is an excellent writer and his plots are great

Just like there's comfort food, I have comfort books and movies. Goodbye California is one of those. I just love Sgt John Ryder, he is a fantastic protagonist, and the humor is great. I will be reading this book again and again.

I read all of his books many years ago. They are just as good all these years later!
Excellent, MacLean at his best
