Publisher's Summary

Warning! The next attack on American soil will come from within.

From coast to coast, the nation is witnessing a new wave of terror - suicide bombers incite blind panic and paralyzing fear, a flight attendant tries to crash an airliner, a police officer opens fire on fans in a stadium, and at CIA headquarters, a deputy director goes on a murderous rampage. The perpetrators appear to be American but are actually covert agents in a vast network of terror, selected and trained for one purpose only: the complete annihilation of America.

Special Agent Jericho Quinn has seen the warning signs. As a classified “instrument” of the CIA reporting directly to the president, Quinn knows that these random acts of violence pose a clear and present danger, but he may not be able to stop it. The search for terrorists has escalated into an all-out witch hunt, and somehow, Quinn’s name is on the list.

Marc Cameron, a native of Texas, has spent over 25 years in law enforcement, the last twenty with the federal government. His assignments have taken him from rural Alaska to Manhattan, Canada to Mexico, and points in between. Having earned a second-degree black belt in jujitsu, he often teaches defensive tactics to other law enforcement agencies and civilian groups. He currently lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife and motorcycle.

    I love espionage and detective thrillers but will listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Not Marc Cameron's best effort!"

    Book 6 of Marc Cameron's Jericho Quinn series will be released next month and I have preordered it. The series has great characters; Alaskan Jericho Quinn, his wonderful daughter, Quinn's ex-wife, Quinni's wild and crazy but reliable younger brother, and Quinn's huge US Marine friend who is always available.

    Books 1, 4 and 5 in the series are outstanding novels. This novel, Book 2, as well as Book 3 are just average and are therefore disappointing. The storyline has unfilled potential in both cases.

    I trust the Book 6, Brute Force, will not disappoint. Cameron is capable of writing great military and espionage thrillers.

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    "Just OK"

    This novel was just "OK". Good enough to finish but not one of those knock your socks off edge of the seat thrillers. It seemed to me like some of the book might have been skipped and in some ways reminded me of an abridged version. Like one minute one of the main characters is in the hospital in serious condition and being confronted by her security guard and in the next scene she's with another character helping to thwart a terrorist plot. What happened in between? The plot was a little choppy and hard to follow, especially in the second part.

    I enjoy reading thrillers: espionage. I am ex Army. I work in the health care industry. I like to practice martial arts. I participate in IDPA matches. Genghis Khan is my favorite person.

    "Skip this one!"

    I can remember only two times in my life that I did not finish a book, no matter how bad it was. This book was one of the two times. The primary problem is the narration, which is something I am able to ignore usually. In this case, the narration was so bad that it made the story harder to follow. I tried to get through it, but could not. After many fitful starts, I finally decided it was time to put it down. I already had many books in my library waiting to be read and I decided I did not want to waste time on this one. I actually listened to 2/3 of the book, but just could not finish. The plot jumps around a lot and normally I would not mind, but in this case, I had difficulty figuring out "who's on first??") I will admit that I do like the character, so I may try another one in this series before giving up entirely (especially since I already purchased another one.) This one, however, is not worth your time. There are plenty of good books to listen to without wasting time on a book that is marginal at best.

    "Please Narrator - keep your characters straight."
    Would you try another book from Marc Cameron and/or Tom Weiner?

    Already into the series, gotta finish it.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Marc Cameron? Why or why not?

    Yes, but in no way related to the narrator


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Couldn't keep characters straight.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Like the story, dislike the narrator. Hard to get emotionally involved with a narrator who has multiple a personality disorder.

    Great read. There were to many memorable moments to recall just one. Tom Weiner did the story true justice. I'd listen again.

    The action is non-stop and the creativity in the plot and the characters is very well done. Add Jericho Quinn to the list of hero's along side Mitch Rapp.

    "Jericho Quinn Series"
    Any additional comments?

    All in audiobook format, this review references the first 3 books in the Jericho Quinn series. Two, National Security and Act of Terror, are narrated by Tom Weiner, State of Emergency by Luke Daniels. All are between 10-11 hours of listening, so in total, these three represent approximately 30 hours of the Jericho Quinn adventures.

    Jericho Quinn is a Mitch Rapp (Vince Flynn), Jason Bourne (Robert Ludlum), Jack Ryan (Tom Clancy) … well, you get the idea. He’s the self deprecating good-guy-tough-guy, who loves motorcycles, that the world turns to in the event of an apocalyptic threat. Jericho and a few secondary heroes/heroine are the go-to characters for the Director of National Intelligence. Quinn’s code name is the ‘hammer’ … which should give you an idea regarding collective mission objectives.

    The bad guys are middle eastern, the weapons that of mass destruction. Think bio weapons, nuclear warheads, dirty bombs, and the feverous attempts to quell what initially seems inevitable.

    The Jericho Quinn stories are complex and a myriad of unrelated events are intermingled into a satisfactory conclusion. Each novel can stand-alone, but characters move through each book to the next. Pay attention, moments are sometimes hard to follow without re-wind. Although these stories usually bring together seemingly disparate events, Cameron goes overboard a bit, in my opinion. There are many scenes that seem to add little, if anything, to the plots, and could easily have been removed. But, that’s just me, and you may come to a different conclusion. Basically, in my opinion, the books are good, but could have been shorter and less confusing.

    Narration is fine. I take no issue with either reader. Luke Daniels has a unique take on the bad guy’s voice, however … a bit grating. But, he’s the bad guy, you’re not supposed to like him :-). You’ll have no trouble discerning who-says-what-to-who with either narrator.

    Many of the well known authors of this genre, like those previously mentioned, are dead, and with them their wonderful characters. In my humble opinion, with this series Marc Cameron is making a credible effort to fill the void with Jericho Quinn.

    If you like the genre, you’ll like these stories … and Jericho Quinn. Enjoy!
