Intercept: A Novel of Suspense

A left-leaning judge liberates four of the most dangerous al-Qaeda terrorists from Guantanamo Bay and the CIA field officers track them back to Pakistan's northwest frontier mountain range.

Publisher's Summary

A left-leaning judge liberates four of the most dangerous al-Qaeda terrorists from Guantanamo Bay and the CIA field officers track them back to Pakistan's northwest frontier mountain range. But the men vanish and rejoin the dark and mysterious forces trained by Osama bin Laden high in the Hindu Kush. These are men with hatred for the United States and Great Britain, and they are sworn to hit back at the USA, which imprisoned so many of their high command. They know there is only one man who can stop them--retired Navy SEAL Lt. Commander Mack Bedford--and he is called in to assist on one of the most highly classified missions ever launched from CIA headquarters.

    Story
    "It Could Have Been A Documentary"
    What disappointed you about Intercept?

    First the plot makes no sense. The U.S. courts free only 4 prisoners and they just happen to be the most dangerous in the world. What happened to all the other terrorists? The hero is the most inept Seal in any story I've listened to. He had these terrorists in his sights multiple times but chose to do nothing. I don't want to give the story away, but instead of trying to take the terrorists out at a remote location, he allows them to proceed to a populated area before taking any action. Terrible writing.


    Has Intercept turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not from this genre, just from this author and narrator.


    What didn’t you like about Charles Leggett’s performance?

    I think he is the same guy who narrates the struggle of the Water Buffalo on the Savannah. Terrible.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Dissappointment. I don't understand how others could rate this book as high as they did. I bought it on ratings and am very disappointed.

    "ALONZO"

    This is a great book. The plot is well structured, in part a documentary (or so it seems), always entertaining. It may be argued that it is a bit boys own adventure, the good guys win but in my view it's about time. Gentlemen if you have to do an an Australiain accent, please dont. Very please to have bought this book.

    Story
    "Riveting!!"
    Would you listen to Intercept again? Why?

    yes I would. One of Robinsons very best books, and I've listened/read all. Very good, and current, storyline that makes you think. It is taken to what I consider the only logical conclusion. very well written


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot did keep you on the edge of your seat simply because of the possiblity , certainly in todays political and legal environment, of there interference in what obviously needed to be done.


    What does Charles Leggett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I had never heard him before, but i liked his narrative, and would listento others of his. He put the emotion need in front of you


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    several extreme reactions. laughing at the stupidity and selfrightiousness of the polictions---and crying for the same reasons!!!! He has totally captured the real mindset of what these crazies really want, and intend to do to all of us.


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone who doubts what these zealots intend to do here--regardless of how long it takes them, should read this book.

    "Right wing drivel"

    I enjoy military/spy/adventure books and will suspend my grasp of reality to indulge in a little rooting for the good guys. Unfortunately "Intercept" spends most of its narrative railing about the soft liberal left wing and how it aids terrorism. It is more than happy to characterize all Muslims as celebrating the events of 9/11.
    I only made it 1/4 of the way through before I just could not dismiss its one sided view of the world.

    Story
    "Like a "monologue""

    This story could have been much better if the characters were "allowed" to interact...this is more of a true narrator watching the story and describing it rather than the individuals actually conversing. It was well into the story before you actually get the conversation of characters. The story could be much better if they were developed and you could get to "know" them. Later in the story when there is a bit more interaction the "best of the best" Navy SEAL sounds like he doesn't know what to do...and the terrorists, described as the "best" have conversations where they clearly have no clue how to be a terrorist.

    Much of the storyline could have been excellent as the atmosphere of the government etc. rang true in many ways. Descriptions of the liberal media, government , judges sounded real. Unfortunately the story wasn't cleaned up/edited to make it the believable and exciting storyline it could have been. I was most disappointed in this because the SEAL star could/should have been used in a far more awesome way than he was.

    Story
    "Uncommonly, fantastically, absolutely GREAT!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Intercept to be better than the print version?

    The narrator brings the words TO LIFE!


    What other book might you compare Intercept to and why?

    Another fantastic book by Patrick is TO THE DEATH. Wonderful story...full of details that make the story come alive!


    What does Charles Leggett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I suffer from chronic pain (from a spinal injury) and from chronic atypical migraine headaches (both from an auto accident). Consequently, I have a lot of "down time", where I have to retreat to a cold, dark room for up to 5 days at a time. Thank the Lord, I can still listen to music or books, and audiobooks have provided many hundreds of hours of diversion for me. The narrator, Charles Leggett, has a God-given ability to take the words, and the intent of the words by the author, and make those words COME ALIVE, and turn those into an "audio masterpiece"! I don't watch TV, choosing to listen to radio, music and audiobooks instead. I wll certainly listen to more of Mr Leggett's narration...if the source material interests me, that is!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Too many to list!


    Any additional comments?

    The perfect narrator for this book by Patrick Robinson!
