Dick Wolf, the celebrated creator of the Law & Order television franchise, makes his literary debut with The Intercept, a taut, driving thriller reminiscent of the classic The Day of the Jackal.

Days before the July Fourth holiday and the dedication of One World Trade Center at Ground Zero, an incident aboard a commercial jet reminds everyone involved that vigilance saves lives.

But New York Police detective Jeremy Fisk--from the department's Intelligence Division, a well-funded anti-terror unit modeled upon the CIA--suspects that the event is a warning sign that another, potentially more extraordinary scheme has been set in motion. So when a passenger from the same plane disappears into the crowds of Manhattan, it's up to Fisk and his partner Krina Gersten to find him before the celebrations begin... And time is running out.

Not a bad book at all and it had a pretty interesting plot. I was not totally into the writing style of the author as I thought it jumped from cause to effect almost magically at times but overall it was okay

Excellent book - fast paced all action thriller.

I had just started to read this when the Boston Marathon bombing occurred. Not just a clever plot, I could not help but see parallels between real life and fiction. Excellent writing, taut and fast-paced.

A well-done plot with lots of twists. Very realistic. Kept my interest till the end. Can't wait for another in this new series.

I enjoyed the book after about halfway. To those who thought this was a page-turner, please read Eye of the Needle and Day of the Jackal which really are much more exciting. Just my opinion.

WOW, this is a book that once opened you just can't put it down. Always alittle something new Wolf inserts for you to pick up on. Keeps the reader guessing.


This fairly-good first suspense thriller set in NYC has as its topic terrorism as expressed in plane hijacking. The characters are believable and the author, a Californian, has his NYC geography for the most part accurate.

It is distracting, however, that characters are continually identified with their employment title "flight attendant Maggie" "cellist Nouvain" as if the reader could not keep track of who's who.

The plot is clever.

Fast moving, well written page-turner.
Cann't wait for the next JEREMY FISK NOVEL.

We declared jihad against the United States government because it was unjust, criminal, and tyrannical. Not because it was easy.

A strike to the ankle is just as fatal as one to the throat. For the giant still falls.
