Hell Up Above
Special agent Jericho Quinn is a wanted man. Suspected of murder and marked for death by a network of conspirators embedded in the White House, Quinn knows he has to get out of the country--fast--before a team of contract killers find him and his daughter. To set things right at home, he'll have to take a nonstop flight from Anchorage, Alaska, to Vladivostok, Russia, aboard a massive Airbus A380. But soon after takeoff, it becomes apparent that Quinn and his daughter picked the wrong plane. First a passenger is brutally murdered. Then Quinn is mistaken for a terrorist by an off-duty air marshal.
As panic spreads through the plane and pressure builds to the screaming point, the unthinkable happens. Someone triggers a bomb.... Spoiler alert: This plane is in big trouble.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
I am down rating Day Zero i star because of lack of closure. I knew when I started the Clifton Chronicles series by Jeremy Archer and the Project Eden series by Brett Battles that each book except the last one would end with major unresolved issues leaving closure for the last books in the two series. Having listened to earlier books in the Jericho Quinn I was expecting Day Zero to end with closure. It did not, so I feel misled.
This series started with National Security which is a great story but the second and third books (Act of Terror and State of Emergency) were major disappointments, so I skipped Time of Attack. I purchased Day Zero at a steeply discounted price and am pleased that it is as good as National Security which is outstanding.
Tim Weiner does an excellent job of narration.
Books with an ending are nice. This is pure crap
Nothing by the author for sure. What a waste of credits and time
No freaking way
None what so ever
If you stumble across this review thinking about this series, I am not joking when I tell you it truly is NOT worth your time and money. None of the books have an ending or any closure. It is perpetual nonsense.
I love series books. But if you are hoping for something like Vince Flynn style... You will be pulling your hair out.
The narrator can't even keep a character accent straight.
This was 100% pure crap.
i just couldn't get into this one. The story did not catch me at any point and while I stopped at Chapter 61, I gave it a shot
My first Marc Cameron book. Too much discontinuity between major plot and events on the plane. Seems like both good and bad guys are McGuiver disciples. Not sure I will finish the series.
The book was more or less a continuation from the last one. I can appreciate setting up a movie for a sequel however in the end there were too many unanswered questions and the wait for the next book is too long.
This book is full of action but when you get to the end, the only thing accomplished was survival. No bad guys vanquished, no plot disrupted, no forward progress in stopping the evil men and plot. I was disappointed that survival was the only victory. The book has lots of action but not much of a story or plot.
I enjoy all the books in the series but it would be nice if we could get some closure on a lot of issues, especially the Jeronica/Kim deal. It's time for Kim to move on and stop whining.
The reader of the book can create a feeling of fear, suspense and intrigue that reading it privately alone just doesn't get.
Quinn, of course. He is one bad a$$ agent who will do anything to protect his little girl and the mother of his child.
Quinn is my favorite character that is performed by Tom Weiner.
It made me think about all of the agents and double agents we can have in the government. I think we tend to be naive until our eyes are open by books like this.
I plan on reading all of the Quinn books in time. They are that good.
