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.

    "Having now read all three"

    I just discovered Jericho Quinn a week or so ago.... and immediately ordered / listened to all three IN ORDER. Definitely read in chronological order as each adventure builds on the earlier ones.

    The narrator for the first two books was (IMO) preferable to this one. This one was too much "mouse and squirrel" with his accents. But this narrator did not detract from my enjoyment. This narrator's "Zamora" did drip pure psycho-evil.

    Comparisons to more established action heroes is easy and obvious. Quinn may be closer to Mitch Rapp than many others. Looking forward to more of Jericho (and friends) from Marc Cameron.

    "Fun Story - Narration a Disappointment"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The action is always fun and interesting.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His voice for Zamora was awful, he squealed to the point that it hurt my ears. Tom Weiner was much better in my opinion.


    Any additional comments?

    Do the authors listen to the books before they are released? I struggled with the high pitch yelping - it hurt my ears and I had to turn the volume way down. If he does another book I hope he goes back to Tom Weiner.

    "If I could five this book 0 - I would"

    I purchases this book because of great reviews of Marc Cameron's books. It was a complete disappointment. It is possible that I needed to start with book one, not in the middle of the series, but I have read other series and in general it does not require to start with the first book to enjoy the story. In this case it was like you started in the middle of the book. There was no real ending, I gues the idea is it will continue in his next book.

    It did not help that performance by Luke Daniels was terrible. All the "bad guys". Had this whiny tone that was beyond irritating and just put me off the book even more.

    I am not sure I would buy another Cameron book.

    Story
    "Formulaic and needed multiple narrators"
    What disappointed you about State of Emergency?

    The narration was out of his depth trying to provide distinctive voices for each different character. His voice for the main villain was just "nails on a chalk board" bad to me.


    What was most disappointing about Marc Cameron’s story?

    The characters are very predictable in definition, interaction, and growth. Cardboard cut outs.

    "Narration unfortunately quite annoying."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    So sorry Mr. Cameron. I think this is a great book, but I found the narration by Luke Daniels so grating, that I had to return the audiobook. I am still a fan of your series though. I hope Audible considers redoing this audio performance for this book with another narrator (e.g., Scott Brick, Tom Weiner, Kyf Brewer, ....).


    Would you be willing to try another one of Luke Daniels’s performances?

    No.


    Was State of Emergency worth the listening time?

    No.

    "Good book but...."

    The narrator almost made me stop listening. Not on par with Horvath or Rapp but a decent listen

    "Terrible Reader"
    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Luke Daniels?

    Anyone


    Any additional comments?

    It was hard to finish with this reader. The quality of the story was hurt because of the struggle to listen to the reader.
