Storming Heaven is a thriller novel by Dale Brown about terrorist attacks on the United States. It was first published in 1994. Plot After Admiral Hardcastle warns the world about America's lack of guards against terrorism, the horrors begin. Henri Cazaux, a psychopathic terrorist, attacks the heartland and then the San Francisco airport with explosives. The country is terrorized. The US authorities are overwhelmed. A single-engine Cessna, loaded with explosives, attacks the White House. Soon after publication, when Frank Eugene Corder flew in a Cessna at low altitude to the White House and crashed on the grounds, newspapers noted similarities. No explosives were found in the wreckage of the plane Corder flew.[1]


Publishers Weekly called it an "unwieldy tale of domestic terrorism," and complained of references by characters in the book to previous books by the author, as well as the author's political bias. The flight scenes were called "first-rate."[2] The Putnam hardcover edition reached number 13 on the New York Times fiction best seller list in August 1994.[3] The Berkley paperback edition reached number 8 on the New York Times paperback fiction best seller list in May 1995.[4]
