Publisher's Summary

Four days before the dedication of the new Freedom Tower at ground zero in New York City, five passengers and a flight attendant bravely foil the hijacking of a commercial jet en route to the city. Thrust into the national spotlight, 'The Six' become instant celebrities, hailed for their bravery. But iconoclastic New York Police investigator Jeremy Fisk believes there's more to this than a simple open-and-shut terrorism case.

Fisk - from the department's Intelligence Division - suspects that in reality this is an early warning signal that another potentially more devastating attack is imminent. Fisk and his team spring into action, but as each promising new lead fizzles to nothing they realise that their opponents are smarter and more dangerous than anyone they've faced before. The seemingly invisible enemy is able to exploit every security weakness, anticipating Fisk's every move. And time is running out until ground zero day....

What the Critics Say

"Fascinating, tense, and twisty - the real deal." (Lee Child, International #1 Bestseller)

"Dick Wolf's The Intercept is nail-biting, page-turning, twisty suspense. Warning: If you value sleep, don't start this one late at night." (Harlan Coben, International #1 Bestseller)

"Dick Wolf has proven he's a master storyteller in any form. The Intercept is gripping, telling and timely. Bottom line: It's a great read!" (Michael Connelly)

"A pulsating plotline. Clever characters. Dramatic dialogue. Surprising twists. All make for an edge-of-your-seat read that will have thriller fans eagerly awaiting the next series installment." (Library Journal Starred Review)

"Storytelling pro Wolf knows how to ratchet up tension and sustain it until the end." (Kirkus Reviews)

"Wolf is best known as the creator of NBC-TV's Law & Order, the longest-running drama in television history, but the stunning plot twists, violence, and frantic pace of the novel are more reminiscent of a season of 24 ... Wolf's take on the American media's obsession with celebrity, and the way these characters cope with it and with one another, provides some of the book's finest moments." (Publishers Weekly Signature Review)

"Wolf's espionage and police-procedural hybrid combines the brainy suspense and unfiltered social commentary found in the best Law & Order episodes with perfectly calibrated action." (Booklist)

    "Good Story"
    What did you like most about The Intercept?

    This was a well written story with believable characters and a good plot. There is a good twist to the plot as well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I thought the story was quite believable in this current climate.


    Which character – as performed by Peter Ganim – was your favourite?

    I liked both of the cops and the flaws they displayed which helped me warm to them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened to it over 3 or 4 sittings while decorating.

    Story
    "Obvious and Tediously One Dimensional."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I'd write it so it was a 'good' book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Dick Wolf again?

    No


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

    Poor female roles (fair enough as he's a guy but they just come across as weak and whining) and very generic 'accents'. But his general delivery of the story was actually not bad.


    Do you think The Intercept needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. If found none of the characters engaging enough to warrant further investigation.


    Any additional comments?

    If you want a fast paced action thriller then this is not it. It's a one dimensional attempt at a surprise story which is about as predictable as it gets. I had the 'terrorist' picked out within minutes of meeting the cast. I will not give further detail in case people still want to read this but I personally found it tedious and predictable.
