Un cacciatore nato. Una preda inafferrabile. Un destino di terrore
Il capitano di vascello Jimmy Ramshawe, neodirettore della National Security Agency di Fort Meade, è in allarme. Ma non è il solo: anche i vertici del Pentagono, della CIA e dell'FBI, per non parlare del governo israeliano, sono attoniti davanti alla sentenza che ha dichiarato liberi di tornare alle loro case quattro sanguinari terroristi islamici, rinchiusi di Guantánamo. Negli ambienti militari la convinzione è unanime: i quattro jihadisti, una volta raggiunti i campi di addestramento di al-Qaeda tenteranno un attacco terroristico di enorme portata ai danni degli Stati Uniti. Bisogna evitare un altro 11 Settembre. E c'è un solo uomo capace di portare a termine la missione architettata da Jimmy Ramshawe: l'ex capitano di corvetta del SEAL Team 10 Mackenzie Bedford, che accetterà di rischiare la propria vita, ma a una condizione...

Intercept by Patrick Robinson is well written to keep its audience tense to know what will happen next. That is probably why it appeareed on the New York Times best sellers list. However, Robinson's political point of view was obviously formed from substituting playing violent video games for at
3.5 stars When four of the world’s most dangerous terrorists are released from Guantanamo Bay due to an Appeal Court Judge deeming their incarceration unlawful; the US military goes into meltdown with frustration. The CIA attempts to track the terrorists back to Afghanistan only to lose them. With the Leggi tutto
Four enemies managed to appeal their way out of Guantanamo Bay. Mack Bedford has been called not only to find them but to kill all of them. Story lacked excitement and detail. Not for me I’m afraid.
I am not a political animal. I have my opinions just like everyone else, but I am going to keep them to myself on this one. Patrick Robinson I am sure, is going to tweak a few people’s strings with this one. and rightfully so. Intercept is an excellent novel and I think he chose a great way to tell Leggi tutto
Oookay, i should know by now that down this path lies madness. I could never truly enjoy something a true "patriot" and teabagger-loudmouth like Robinson would write including themes like Afghanistan and US Military interventions. At the end i'm always frustrated about the sabre-rattling and pompous Leggi tutto
Mack Bedford seems to have acquired delusions of being stronger than a locomotive and faster than a speeding bullet. After four terrorists were released from Guantanamo Bay prison, the military asked Mack to hunt them down. Mack names his price - return to active duty. Mack was smart and invincible, Leggi tutto
First, I need to say that the story line for this book was good, but the author writing was not so good. It was very wordy and there was a lot of useless information thrown in. It seems that the author was just trying to fill in pages to make the book long enough. It was also very predictable-not a
7/10 16% A good old fashioned terrorist plot, fast paced but spoilt by special forces antics that seemed foolish and perpetrators who would be too stupid to notice / neither scenario seeming realistic IMHO. Might try more by the author but won’t read this again especially due to long chapters and sm Leggi tutto
I listened to the whole Mack Bedford series ( https://www.goodreads.com/series/8697... ) while I was laid up with hip surgery and broken computer. It helped keep me sane. I've borrowed my wife's work MacBook to do some catchup, but I don't know far I'll get before she catches me. Good Rah! Rah! series to Leggi tutto
Story of a retired Navy Seal that is asked to come back to help the U.S. Government track down a couple of terrorists. Author gives many details on the terrorists, so it was interesting to get the point of view of the villain and the hero.
