From Dick Wolf, the man who brought you Law & Order, a new book...

[ Edited ]

In September 2001, Dick Wolf and his team were two weeks from beginning principal photography on the mini-series about a terrorist attack in Manhattan where a bomb was detonated in the subway killing 3,500 people.  The project was shelved, but Wolf’s desire to explore the dynamics of terrorism in the world’s greatest city was unabated.




THE INTERCEPT follows Jeremy Fisk, a detective in the NYPD’s Intelligence Division of the Joint Terrorism Task Force.  Just before New York City’s Fourth of July celebrations and the dedication of the new One World Trade Center building, five passengers and a flight attendant bravely foil the hijacking of a commercial jet. “t seems as though the worst has been narrowly averted, but behind the scenes, Fisk and his partner Kirsten Gersten work feverishly to put all the pieces together—knowing something isn’t quite right.  


Fisk suspects that the high jacking may have been a diversion to distract authorities from another passenger on board. Now that passenger has entered Manhattan and disappeared into thin air. Each time Fisk thinks he’s found his man, he realizes his opponents are smarter and more agile than any he has faced before.  They have discovered yet another weakness in the city’s defense and are anticipating Fisk’s every move.


Advance reviews have been unanimous:

“a spectacular fiction debut with this gripping thriller….A pulsating plotline. Clever characters. Dramatic dialog. Surprising twists. All make for an edge-of-your-seat read…” -- Library Journal starred review


“Storytelling pro Wolf knows how to ratchet up tension and sustain it until the end.” – Kirkus


“… the stunning plot twists, graphic violence, and frantic pace of the novel are more reminiscent of a season of24.” -- Publishers Weekly


“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
