REVIEW for Intercept

A huge thank you goes out to the wonderful people at Perseus Books for sending me this book.

TITLE: Intercept

AUTHOR: Patrick Robinson

GENRE: Thriller

RATING: 3 Stars

Navy Seal Mack Bedford is back in this newest book by Patrick Robinson. Actually Robinson and a handful of others are the only authors I truly enjoy - who write in this "genre" as I don't normally like reading about terrorists, etc.

Intercept is okay - for some reason, I felt as though this one simply did not engage me as much as Robinson's other works and I think it is because I thought the pacing was too slow. One of the big problems I have with many authors is that they write thrillers, without realizing that, while details are important, they can also slow the storyline considerably and I think this is the issue here.

I like the character of Bedford who is both a hero and a bit of a horror as well - a nice mixture and I like the main premise of this book - finding 4 terrorists who were released by the US government in the first place, but I just felt as though this one was not up to par.
