Publisher's Summary

Two agents, Russian and American, are brutally murdered. College students, working as drug mules, die gruesome deaths from radiation poisoning. Powerful dirty bombs explode minutes apart in San Francisco and St. Petersburg, Russia - slaughtering citizens and spreading blind panic throughout the world. But this is only a warning. The next attack will be nuclear.

Enter Air Force OSI agent Jericho Quinn and his crack team of specialists. Their mission: track down the black-market arms dealer who masterminded the plot - with a Soviet-era, suitcase-sized bomb - and dismantle them both. When the trail leads to South America, Quinn has to join the famous Dakar Rally, a 6,000-mile motorcycle run that’s about to become the most dangerous race in history. It’s not the finish line they’re racing for. It’s the fate of the world....

    "The series matures"

    I love what Marc Cameron has done with this series: National Security introduced the main characters and established the tone for the series. Act of Terror picks up where the last book left off, introduced some more characters for the series. State of Emergency starts shortly after AoT, lets us know that one of the previous villains is still being pursued, but takes us to more pressing matters. Jericho picks up more allies and enemies and we can see the stage being set for some interesting story arcs in both his professional and personal life.
    Jericho Quinn ranks with Scot Harvath, Mitch Rapp, and Jason Bourne as my favorite counter-terrorist agents.

    "Poor narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great story in this series.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    By making the voices of the female characters (and there are several important ones) and anyone "whispering" so low that you cannot hear them. He also gives a voice to the villain that is so effeminately loud and annoying so as to make him a ridiculous cartoon. In other books Luke Daniels is a good narrator. In this one he tries to be Scott Brick and fails miserably at it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me angry to keep having to turn the volume up and down.

    Story
    "Comic Book-esc"

    I hope Marc had no illusions that this story line and characters were to be real; they come across more super-hero like a comic book. The story is a good ride; you know the good guys will prevail. Some of the book feels a bit cliché but it was fun. The narrator had a real hard time doing female voices and his solution was to make them soft, but then you couldn’t hear them at the same volume for the rest of the book. Very very frustrating. I had to replay the female voice sections at a louder volume just to hear what was said. Hence the one star for performance - it happened too often to ignore.

    "Great story - disappointed in the narration"
    Any additional comments?

    It was difficult to put up with much of the main villain. I know he's supposed to be a little off, but the portrayal put by the narrator was almost cartoonish.

    It was also difficult to deal with the change between the forceful, clear narration cut to the soft voice of some of the characters. I frequently had to go back and rewind when listening to certain voices because the volume level changed so dramatically. I understand that when characters "whisper" then the narrator is supposed to do something different, but I would prefer a stage whisper to the real thing.

    Overall, the narration was very good, with the caveats mentioned above.
