The Intercept: A Jeremy Fisk Novel, Book 1 | [Dick Wolf]

The Intercept: A Jeremy Fisk Novel, Book 1

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 suspects that the event might also be a warning sign that another scheme has been set in motion.

Publisher's Summary

Dick Wolf makes his literary debut with this tense, driving thriller, reminiscent of the classic The Day of the Jackal, an extraordinary tale filled with the ingenious twists and high-wire suspense we have come to expect from this master storyteller.

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 antiterror 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.

    "Good overall detective story"

    Like the best Law & Order episodes, Wolf's story combines just enough personal drama with a tight police procedural to keep things moving and keep you engaging. Definitely kept me interested and surprised until the end.

    I listen to books to be entertained... my favorite genre is a "Legal Thriller" I have actually been a member since 2001. Love my books!

    Story
    "Lacked excitement"

    I love most of Dick Wolf's TV shows. I did not find the same excitement or drama in his book. I did not hate it and I did not love it. The book did give me something to listen to while I waited for something better to come along. Frankly, it was forgettable. I finished it a couple of weeks ago, and I cannot tell you anything about it. Could be my memory, but in the year 2000, I listened to "The Lion's Game" by Nelson DeMille, and I still remember it. If you are in a pinch for a good book it will serve until one comes along.

    "Taut thriller"

    This is a tightly-written thriller from the creator of the Law&Order TV franchise. The hero, Jeremy Fisk, is an intelligence agent with the NYPD, working on antiterror strategies. When a plane hijacking is foiled, he starts to investigate whether there is a bigger plot at hand.

    I enjoyed this book and Peter Ganim's narration is clear and vivid, and I look forward to the next book in this series.

    "It's a very good start."

    You will not be disappointed with this, albeit it could be a little more polished and you can trace its roots back to the Television scripts the author is trained on producing! Having said that, it's a little short, but still worth the listen.

    "Not a bad read"
    Would you try another book from Dick Wolf and/or Peter Ganim?

    If there is a sequel I would read it but I hated the way it ended. Read like a movie and the tense moments were dragged out to long but over all ok.


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

    no
