Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Guantanamo Bay has housed many suspected terrorists, and in Robinson's latest technothriller, four of the deadliest are released back into society. Having the U.S. government and the Supreme Court to thank for their freedom, the four men promptly go into hiding and plot their next attack. Knowing the former prisoners are dangerous, the CIA hires retired Navy SEAL Mack Bedford, hero of Robinson's novel Diamondhead (2009), to assassinate them before they can kill innocent people. Bedford needs to succeed not only to save countless lives but also to recover the respect he lost on a prior mission. Robinson tries to enter Vince Flynn territory here, but his story line moves at a snail's pace and offers no surprises at all. The result reads more like a newspaper story than a thriller. Still, Robinson has a devoted following, and they will be willing to stick with him, even on a subpar outing. --Jeff Ayers

This was the first Patrick Robinson book I've read and was very disappointed. There were a lot of sloppy errors in this book, that should have been caught by the author or a good editor. For example: Islamic Militants do NOT eat pork products and the Mosad never confirms, never denies, etc.

If this book was cut to 250 pages, the story would have been tighter and the unnecessary filler would make for better action.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
While I agree strongly with Mr. Robinson's political views concerning terrorism, his writing left me wanting. I am an old jarhead -24 years in the Corps--- and have worked with the SEAL and other special ops people, but Lt. Cmd. Bedford's recon of a farm house without a weapon, and then letting an assailant sneak up and grab him is unbelievable. He would have to be dumber than a wall. His mission was to kill the four terrorist not play silly ass games, which if they went astray would have killed school kids and their parents.

There were other improbable scenes, but I have already wasted too much time reading Intercept to go over them. I have never heard of a Sig Saur 9 mm. revolver, and I seriously doubt that the ex SEAL would carry a revolver except as a small back up weapon. There was also mention of a magazine with the revolver. How you use a magazine of 9 mm. ammo with a revolver is hard to imagine.
The excessive background of every minor character moves the action along at a snail's pace.

Mr. Robinson has impressive credentials, but this effort is a failure.

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.

This was a very poor effort, nowhere near the standard of the author's earlier books. It reads like a long sermon about what Robinson believes is wrong with the world. He has made little effort to construct a decent plot, the story is full of holes and implausible developments, and the characters are completely one dimensional. Robinson gives us a hero going on a secret mission that will be denied by the US government if he is ever caught...who is carrying a credit card with no limit that will come up with the words 'US Govt' if placed in a credit card machine. We have Muslim terrorists eating pork. We have Jimmy Renshawe...a young bag carrier and aide to the NSA Director in previous books...who is suddenly promoted to the NSA Director chair when his boss retires because he is terribly intelligent and might leave if not given the job. Although he now has several thousand men and women working for him and one of the most important intelligence jobs in America he still has time to break the case, with only Google Maps to help him. We have terrorists who make silly and implausible mistakes like walking out of the airport and taking a cab straight to meet their handler. It is all very silly. This book would have benefited from an editor strong enough to cut about one third of the pages and tell the author to leave out the self indulgent political point scoring.

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.
