Publisher's Summary

A left-leaning 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 the men vanish and rejoin the dark and mysterious forces trained by Osama bin Laden high in the Hindu Kush. These are men 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. 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.

Satisfying thriller, good reader

Patrick Robinson is an unabashed right-wing extremist, with clear symptoms of testosterone poisoning, unapologetic approval of presidents Bush and Reagan, and uncompromising hard-line opinions. He also writes consistently rip-roaring good thrillers, all of which I have read ??? and will continue to read ??? despite my disagreement with his politics. In each novel, Robinson intelligently examines some important political/military issue ??? and, I have to admit, makes a pretty good case for his opinion and proposed solution. In "Intercept," he poses the question: Do terrorists deserve due process? And he performs a thought experiment, in which liberal human-rights activists force the United States government to grant accused terrorists court trials ??? with defense attorneys ??? according to United States law. Since the detainees' guilt cannot be proved beyond a reasonable doubt, two Afghan terrorists are released from the Guantanamo Bay facility, only to begin planning another heinous attack ... this time on a United States Jewish school. Of course, that sets the stage for Robinson's hero, Navy S.E.A.L., Lt. Commander Mack Bedford, to step in and save the world ... again. Mr. Robinson idolizes the S.E.A.L.s; and, if half of what he attributes to them is true, rightly so. His tales of their exploits make for exciting listening; and Charles Leggett renders a near-perfect reading of the story. I recommend "Intercept" ??? indeed, all of Patrick Robinson's novels ??? to any thriller-lover, even those with liberal inclinations, like me. He makes you think, if you keep your mind open a little bit, about difficult issues from a different perspective. He might even make you think about certain issues that you had never even considered before.

- Snoodely

Reliably diverting and engrossing

As with any Patrick Robinson books I've listened to, this was full of military themes and personnel, and a dastardly plot by evil doers to commit mischief on the US of A. Not being a right wing conservative who thinks Dick Cheney walks on water, the far right political bent can be a little tedious. But the story telling is terrific, and his characters, while rather one-sided, always leave you rooting for the good guys. One my favorite lines from his books is the Navy Seals philosophy that there are few problems in the world that cannot be solved with enough high explosive. If you like action and military themes, you'll enjoy this (or any other) Patrick Robinson book.
