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.

    Story
    "Page turner"

    The book has a good plot that, just like a good Law and Order episode, goes in directions you don't anticipate in the early stages. I would definitely listen to subsequent books in the Jeremy Fisk series as they appear, which I hope they do. I'd have to agree with an Amazon reader who said it lacked a bit of emotion, but it was still better than average for me. All very forgivable for a first novel!

    I'm a guy. I like books about war and sci-fi. I listen to 2 or 3 books a week.

    Great story! Keep me into it the whole way! Peter Ganim does a great job, I could listen to him read assembly instructions for IKEA furniture!

    Story
    "Better Luck Next Book"

    I love "Law & Order." "The Intercept" reads like a Dick Wolf script, and that's not a good thing. The story is repetitious, derivative, and bland up to the final few minutes. What makes Mr. Wolf's scripts great are the actors in the "Law & Order" TV series. They the characters to life, make them compelling. But, there's nothing captivating about any of the characters in this novel. Nothing. The book reads like a script.

    "Twists and Turns"

    The twists and turns in this novel kept me on the edge of my seat and listening! I read the reviews that said that Dick Wolf should stick to TV "Law and Order", which might be true because I don't watch that show, but I was able to take this read with me everywhere and was not glued to a tv set, plus the depth of the plot could not have been developed as well on an one hour tv show. I liked it and recommend....

    "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.

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

    Amazing. Great. Exciting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything. Like fast paced thrillers. This was exactly that!


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

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Must see!


    Any additional comments?

    Law and Order fan forever. Give me more books Mr. Wolf!

    Any additional comments?

    Our hero's ability to divine criminal intent from scanty circumstance is just too jarring. Time after time, you will find yourself shaking your head in disbelief. So, the intrigue becomes tedious; the action becomes mime. Let this one pass.

    I am rarely seen without my headphones on and my iPod clipped on my waist. I love my books.

    "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.
