Deborah Sinclaire, Editor-in-Chief, BOMC states, "Dick Wolf knows how to grab an audience and hook us with addicting storylines.  In his first book, he has written a superb, edge-of-your-seat, ripped from the headlines thriller featuring the kind of characters I can't wait to read about again.  Detective Fisk is a welcome addition to the ranks of great detectives." 

"I am thrilled that The Intercept has been selected as a National Black Ribbon Book by BOMC. As an award-winning writer, director, and producer, Dick Wolf has some of the most acute storytelling instincts in the business. Happily for us, he has brought those estimable skills to this stellar debut novel: plot surprises galore and passionate characters who when faced with the longest odds, believe that true justice is possible. It's an honor for me, as Dick's editor, to share this striking first novel with you and to see The Intercept embraced by BOMC. I hope you will enjoy reading this ingenious novel as much as I have." – David Highfill, VP/Executive Editor, William Morrow.
