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.

As others have already remarked, the book is replete with typos, grammatical errors, subject-verb agreement, number confusion, etc. Everybody needs a proofreader--Robinson appears not to have had the services of one available to him.
I live in Connecticut, and the sloppiness is apparent here as well, as he describes the routes traveled by the main characters. If one is taking the Hutch from New York into Connecticut, one doesn't go through Danbury and Waterbury. The Hutch feeds directly into the Merritt Parkway at Greenwich. I-684 leads into I-84, which is the route through Danbury and Waterbury, and then up State Route 8 to Torrington. However, I-684 cuts off the Hutch before the Connecticut state line. Also, Robinson has his characters leaving Torrington on I-7. Sorry--but it's U.S. 7, and it's a lovely drive, but anyone who wants to make time, would be better advised to continue north on Route 8 to Winstead, and then take U.S. 44 to U.S. 7. In either case, you wouldn't make very good time.
Now--here's a serious error: at one point in the book Robinson has Mack Bedford saying "Over and out." I'm a retired naval officer, and every time I hear that phrase, it's like someone running his fingernails down the blackboard. It's either "over" or "out." Never both. Never. And Mack, being an experienced naval officer, would never make such an error. I asked me son, an Army officer, what he would do if he heard someone say: "over and out," and he responded that it wouldn't be a problem, simply because no one would ever do it. Robinson needs to do his homework a bit better.
Now, for the really serious part: Mack solves his major problems always as easily as Tom Swift did. After a bit of logic, piecing the puzzle together, Mack always finds his quarry and kills them before they have a chance to do any real damage. My opinion: Robinson's earlier novels held together better than his latest works. He spins a good yarn, he needs to tighten his prose somewhat and pay a bit more attention to detail.

Midway through this book, I had to stop reading it. I have tortured myself in finishing Robinson's other books. See my 1-star reviews of "To the Death," "Diamondhead," "Ghost Force," and "Scimitar SL-2." Every one of those books were not worth the hours I spent on them. This one, I had to call it quits.

Robinson fancies himself as a thriller writer with knowledge of how intelligence is collected and analyzed by different agencies across the world. Here's the part I stopped reading at. There is an "intercept" of a phone call with the acronym MCM, and what looks like a street address. The premise is that the bad guys are Islamic fundamentalists. The receiver of this message immediately knows that this is a street address of an Islamic center in Mexico. However, in the totally idiotic world that Robinson lives in, the entire NSA, CIA, and British intelligence can't come up with the same conclusion. I guess they fired all their middle-eastern analysts. My first thought was, "Hello! Google the damn thing! Search for <MCM AND street address> and see what comes up!!"

And AGAIN - Robinson writes dialogue that no one in their right mind ever speaks. NO one talks like people in his books. It is so plainly dumb that I feel my IQ slipping points every time I turn the page. I remember Hardy Boys being better written.

Mr. Robinson - do you ever venture here to read these reviews? A piece of advice: Please spend a few weeks at a writing clinic. You need help with dialogue, plot development, pacing, grammar.. heck.. just in how to write.

I hope the bad guys got caught in the end, and America survives the latest assault on its freedom. Its too late for us to be saved from the pen of Mr. Robinson.

Looking forward to following Mack Bedford through more adventures. After reading "Lone Survivor", which was so well written by Patrick Robinson and Marcus Luttrell, I started reading more books by both authors to see if their other books were as easy to read while capturing your attention. They were. Intercept kept me up late reading, and left me wanting more.

I have enjoyed most all Patrick Robinson novels but this is an endless biography of each character that seems to never end. Suspense? There's a trickle every now and then yet it borderlines dullness more than suspense. The book is 334 pages long. One feels something is about to take place near page 280 but the tale continues to trudge along at a turtles pace. There are profound errors that cannot be explained as to why PR let them slip onto the pages that leaves the reader shaking their head in disappointment. Sorry, PR but Inception only gets 2 *'s. Hope you do better next time or you've lost a reader.

Implausible! I cannot believe for one moment that a professional fighting force like the US Navy SEALS would make the bad tactical decisions used in this work. Allow a school bus full of explosives to enter the premises of a school? Patrick Robinson's two works (HMS Unseen, Kilo Class) in which he collaborated with Admiral Sir Sandy Woodward were top shelve. However, I have to agree with all the bad crits of previous reviewers on slovenly research and technical errors in this one. Always hoping that things would improve, I finally lost it when his Black Hawk lowered it's ramp . . .
in waiting
Excellent book! I always enjoy books by this author and if you like an action packed book with lots of detailed information then you should enjoy these too.

The lead character of this book is one bad dude that would make any Navy Seal proud. Action packed from cover to cover.
First time reader of the author. Enjoyed the read. Would recommend it to anyone who lies modern day war reads.
