The Intercept by Dick Wolf - a review

For anyone who is a Law & Order fan like I am, you MUST read The Intercept by Dick Wolf.  As you can see by the picture of the book cover to the left, Dick Wolf is the creator of Law & Order and The Intercept is his first novel.

I truly love reading fast paced thrillers that get my adrenaline pumping and Dick Wolf' debut did just that.  His character, NYPD Special Agent Jeremy Fisk is the protagonist and is a character to be remembered.

The story is set in New York City and  days before the 4th of July celebration and dedication of the new One World Trade Center building six people on board a commercial jet stop a hijacking attempt and become instant celebrities known as "The Six".  Special Agent Fisk and his partner, Kirsten Gersten don't believe it was simply a terrorist attack.  In fact, they believe it was a diversion in order to allow another passenger to come into the United States unnoticed.

What I liked most about this book was I felt like I was watchiing it unfold on television.  Mr. Wolf has a gift of showing his story just as if it were a script being acted out on the television screen.  I also love it when I get pulled into a book and I'm held captive until the very last page.  The Intercept did that for me and I'm sure it will be the same for you.  I would highly recommend this book to any adult who enjoys action packed thrillers!

On a 5-Star scale = 5 Stars!!!!!

I would like to thank the author and HarperCollins Publishers for my review copy.  I received my copy for free in order to read and give my honest review which I have done.

Smiles & Blessings,
