A solid fast-paced, action-packed novel about the good guys against the bad and those in-between. And how challenging it is for the NYPD, FBI and other US agencies to try to stay at least 1 step ahead of terrorists.

Many cool characters but they could all use a bit more personality, quirks, development. Hope that happens in the next few books in the Jeremy Fisk series.

Good read.

Like all of Dick Wolf's shows so figured I'd try his first book. Not bad but kept waiting for something exciting to happen, given the premise. Lots of characters but none really fleshed out. All in all a quick read and will try the next one he writes. ( )

Impossible to stop reading.
Terrifying because IT COULD HAPPEN.
Really enjoyed the style - saddened by the ending... I held out hope till the very end. ( )

Dick Wolf, known by most people as the man behind the many Law & Order television shows expands outwards into literature with his first novel, The Intercept. It's pretty good.

It opens with Osama Bin Ladin and shortly thereafter a raid on his house, then follows an unfolding terror attack based on his final instructions - to attack the west more intelligently.

Good tempo throughout, plenty of unfolding mystery and a good lead up to the eventual climax of the story.

Would definitely pick up the next one if I run into it. ( )

Book description
Days before the July Fourth holiday and the dedication of One World Trade Center at Ground Zero, an incident aboard a commercial jet flying over the Atlantic Ocean reminds everyone that vigilance is not a task to be taken lightly. But for iconoclastic NYPD detective Jeremy Fisk, it may also be a signal that there is much more to this case than the easy answer of this being just the work of another lone terrorist.

Fisk—assigned to the department's Intelligence Division, a well-funded anti-terror unit modeled on the CIA—suspects that the event might also be a warning sign that another, potentially more extraordinary scheme has been set in motion. Fluent in Arabic and the ways of his opponents, Fisk is a rule breaker who follows his gut—even if it means defying those above him in the department's food chain. So when a passenger from the same plane, a Saudi Arabian national, disappears into the crowds of Manhattan, it's up to Fisk and his partner Krina Gersten to find him before the celebrations begin.

Watching each new lead fizzle, chasing shadows to dead ends, Fisk and Gersten quickly realize that their opponents are smarter and more agile than any they have ever faced. Extremely clever and seemingly invisible, they are able to exploit any security weakness and anticipate Fisk's every move . . . and time is running out.
