Review – The Intercept by Dick Wolf

The InterceptI received an ARC of The Intercept through the Goodreads-Firstreads program.

A group of brave passengers stop an attempted terrorist on a flight headed into the United States.  They become national heroes.  But one of the investigators, Jeremy Fisk, feels that there is more going on than a lone hijacker.  He, along with his fellow detective and lover Krina Gersten, is determined to find out what is really going on.  They will stop at nothing to prevent another attack on US soil.

The Intercept is a simple novel.  I don’t mean that in a negative way.  It’s simply a very straightforward thriller about terrorism and law enforcement’s difficulty in preventing such attacks.  I can’t say the plot twists or reveals were surprising.  I saw most (not all) of them coming ahead of time.

Fisk is strong protagonist and I think we will see several more books from DW in this series.

For the majority of the book, I felt it was a 3.5 star read.  But, because the action did have me turning the pages as quickly as possible at the end, I am giving this one 4/5 stars.
