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.

    "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!

    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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Not good enough to follow the series"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Dick Wolf again?

    I have appreciated Dick Wolf's television work over the years; so I really expected to enjoy this novel. The plot had some good twists, but too much of the story was 'told' instead of 'shown.' I was never able to achieve an immersive experience.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator has a deep bass voice with very little modulation. I fought against my boredom with the story and the narration to get through it. Given my low level of frustration, I focussed on every mispronounced word. Not something I want to do again any time soon.

    "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....

    "Devils of doom"

    New twists and turns in the terrorist game. New bombs, different race representation, sex, deception, and best of all the book challenges your thinking. Up to the end.
    I hope dye series continues with more exciting twists and turns.
    Jeremy Fisk makes a great character, he is almost a cop, but he is much much more, and that sets him apart from the typical guy that rides in under a white hat.
