This is book number 1 in the Jeremy Fisk series.
Yes, the creator of the hit TV series, Law & Order, can also write a fastpaced entertaining thriller with good characters. Just before July 4th, NYPD's rule-breaking detective Jeremy Fisk investigates a thwarted airplane hijacking, which he believes has ramifications for the future. — Sarah Knight
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.
