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

    "Terrible recording, unable to hear female voices"
    How could the performance have been better?

    The female voices were performed as a whisper which meant I had to turn up the volume to maximum and then the male narration was too loud.

    "Terrible narration"

    The women's voices were so quiet I had to crank the volume. Then the men's voices were so loud they'd burst your ear drums. I wore out my volume control listening to this book.

    "Labored thru narration"

    Women's voices were so quiet I couldn't hear them while driving in my car. I had to go back several times because the reader lost me in his almost monotone.

    "NARRATION IS LIKE FINGER NAILS ON A CAULK BOARD"
    What would have made State of Emergency better?

    NARRATION


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I may download the next book in the series I was able to listen to Tom Weiner. But Luke Daniels voice is screeching


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His screeching portral of a female voice actually hurt my head


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

    Disappointment. I had listened to the first two books in the series and was curious about the reset of the series. Now if I get the next book I will have missed what happened in this book. I feel as if I wasted time getting involved in the series.

    "Mispronunciation"

    Enjoyed the story, but the narrator mispronounced the county in which San Antonio, Texas is located. Bexar County should be pronounced Bayer (like the aspirin) County.
