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.

    "Worst Narration in a while"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Anyone other than Luke Daniels. His character voices translate to fingernails on a chalkboard. Very disappointed at the editing process to not recognize how bad his character voices are when compared to the first two books.


    If you’ve listened to books by Marc Cameron before, how does this one compare?

    Didn't finish. Going to read the text version


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

    I would go back to Tom Weiner or Scott Brick

    Story
    "Worst Narration ever and this was my 436th purchas"
    What did you love best about State of Emergency?

    Thankfully this was a great story, because the narrator did his level best to ruin it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of State of Emergency?

    Finding out that the original narrator was back for next book in series.


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

    No, no, no, no. I hope this is clear and lacking any ambiguity, but again NO. This should be rerecorded with anyone else reading it including my 5 year old nephew. SERIOUSLY. Some of the characters including the main villain sounded more like mentally challenged cartoon characters after a lobotomy. Took everything I had not to just get the kindle version and finish it, but to make my most negative review ever truly legit, I listened to every word and screech read. So if the characters were not bad enough, the volume was so varied I was constantly adjusting the volume, constantly increasing volume and replaying parts then blowing out speakers and ears with the screech of one the cartoon voices. This would be my last purchase in this series if Luke continued. Thankfully this was his only disaster.


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

    The fact that a great story was so hard to listen to because of the most misguided narration ever. I can't believe this made it out of the studio. Didn't anyone that cared about the author listen to this disaster?


    Any additional comments?

    BUY THE KINDLE or PRINTED VERSION OF THIS BOOK. If this was your first in the series listen to any of the others before deciding if you want to continue. This book is an anomaly maybe produced to help us appreciate the many good narrators that are out there.

    "Narrator not best choice"

    Because the villain in this story was so deranged, the treatment of his voice should have been less comical. It was hard to take the story line seriously. Also women and children voices were the same. Narrator's skills were not up to the requirements of this production, and
