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.

    "Predictable from the start"

    Hate it when "the bad guy" is so obvious from so early in the story. Not a very realistic depiction of what would really happen in any of the dramatic situations. I wanted Mitch Rapp to show up and just shoot'em in the head and get the book over with!

    "Terrorist plot"

    Good book, characters were okay. Some interesting descriptions of military process and foreign culture that I was unaware of. 'Love interest' (written by a man) felt typical and formulary. Narrator made male lead character a bit too full of himself for me.

    Story
    "Great twists and turns and never a dull moment"
    Would you listen to The Intercept again? Why?

    Absolutely! There are so many unexpected twists and turns in this story that I will want to listen to it again in case I missed something.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Terrorist plot genres have gotten somewhat stale these days. However, this one introduces a whole new premise to the players in this drama and it kept me guessing throughout the story. I love books that I cant figure out until the very end and this was certainly one of those.


    Have you listened to any of Peter Ganim’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't think I"ve ever heard his narration before, but I certainly want to listen to him some more. He has a really nice voice and can do many different accents and both male and female voices very well. A seamless performance!


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

    Several. If I mention them here, though, I might give some important parts of the plot away.


    Any additional comments?

    I purchased this during a "First of Series" sale and am so glad that I did. I can hardly wait to listen to the next one in the series. It is right up there with my favorite "John Corey" series books and every bit as good.

    "suspense"

    OK, some of the story dry. reminds me of something tailored to men. Didn't really get interesting until almost the end. By then you knew what was going to happen.

    Story
    "A Disappointment"

    I was excited when I discovered that Dick Wolf had published a series of mysteries. But about 30 minutes in, I knew this wasn't up to the standard of Law & Order. The Intercept was dry, re-hashed and full of all the wrong details - paper work, procedures, meetings. The dialogue sounded canned and false - it was dreadful & l wasn't crazy about the reader. I did listen to the end, though, even when I knew it wasn't going to get better, mostly out of respect to Dick Wolf...

    "Outstanding Audio Book"
    If you could sum up The Intercept in three words, what would they be?

    Excellent Mystery Audiobook


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

    Yes! Excellent character development. Never know who the Terrorist was until 80 percent of the book was read, Multi levels of deception and mystery. Excellent storyline with layers to think about and digest. Plot gives you lots to think about in to day's world.


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

    What a wonderful book read by a great narrator. Varies voices and easy to listen vocal tones.


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

    When the true terrorist was exposed and caught.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story teller from TV turned book author. Great job.!!!!

    "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.
