Overview


A left-leaning appeal court judge liberates four of the most dangerous al-Qaeda terrorists from Guantanamo Bay and the CIA field officers track them back to Pakistan’s northwest frontier mountain range. But disaster overtakes them and the four men vanish, to rejoin the dark and mysterious forces trained by Osama bin Laden high in the Hindu Kush. These are men with hatred in their hearts, with hatred for the United States and Great Britain, and they are sworn to hit back at the USA, which imprisoned so many of their high command.

A fateful communication from the mountains of the Afghan side of the border is intercepted by Britain’s secret surveillance station on the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. Al-Qaeda is almost certainly planning a new hit on the US mainland. The CIA is at its wits end, all their fears coming home to roost.

They know there is only one man who can stop them—retired Navy SEAL Lt. Commander Mack Bedford—and he is called in to assist on one of the most highly classified missions ever launched from CIA headquarters. Bedford names his price, and once more, the nobility of the man is spun into a breathtakingly fast action novel.

    exciting action packed thriller

    The two Western educated childhood friends became al-Qaeda terrorists killing military and civilians until Ibrahim Sharif and Yousaf Mohammed were captured by US Navy SEAL Team 10 in a small village in the Hindu Kush mountain region of Afghan. They were taken to Guantomino Bay where they were held prisoners but refused to cooperate; not even providing their names to the military tribunal.

    A few years later, the court system demands habeas corpus applies to the detainees. With Saudi money to buy Epstein's law firm, the two terrorists and two other cohorts are free. However, neither the law firm nor the terrorists realizes that the CIA and Mossad are tracking them. The quartet plots an act at a school in Connecticut with plans after that to return to the Hindu Kush for further activity against the hated west. Retired Navy SEAL Lieutenant Commander Mack Bedford, who led the first sweep that captured the pair, leads another operation against them with deadly force not just authorized but required.

    This is an exciting action packed thriller as Bedford returns to active duty to go after the same terrorists he caught the last time he was in Afghanistan. The story line is fast-paced throughout, but also has an accusatory tone blaming liberals and leftists for being soft on terrorism and arguing to keep Gitmo open. These premises ignore that a right wing administration took its eye off al Qaeda and that the courts system has locked away in federal pens some nasty terrorists; none of whom have escaped. Still readers will be hooked from the moment that the espionage agency Intercept the electronic traffic as Bin Laden and the CIA-Mossad agents know the importance of Yousaf and Sharif.

    Boring

    Unlike Diamondhead, Intercept has been a dull read. I will slog through to the end, but I wish I didn't have to.

    Drags way to much.

    This book gave way to much information and background detail on the terrorist, more than half the book is about the background of the bad guys. There was more rambling than action,this book does not hold a candle to the first book in the series.

    Another Lone Hero Novel

    When the United States gives its military a mission, it is to protect and defend, not just the public, but the Constitution of the land and the system of justice of which we are proud. Here, however, renegade members of the military defy an order of the United States Supreme Court and take the law into their own hands, becoming killers of the people they have judged to be guilty. Naturally the author stacks the deck,making the hunted men truly evil. But, the fact remains that if these men were so bad,our system of justice could easily convict them of their crimes, and it would not be necessary for soldiers to defy their own government and betray the values of their country men. As entertainment, well the novel clearly sets up the traditional battle between the good guys and the bad guys, and there are plenty of explosions and shootings to satisfy any adolescent mind reading the book. Besides terrorists, the author makes a couple of comments about gays that might make the reader think he wouldn't mind if they shared the fate of the terrorists.
