Publisher's Summary

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.

Great action novel that deserves 5 stars, but...

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.

No more. I am done

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Books with an ending are nice. This is pure crap

What do you think your next listen will be?

Nothing by the author for sure. What a waste of credits and time

Would you be willing to try another one of Tom Weiner’s performances?

No freaking way

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None what so ever

Any additional comments?

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.

boring

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

McGuiver on steroids

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.

I need closure!

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.

Lots of Action but failed to advance the Story

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.

A bit campy

The reader isn’t one of the better readers. Some problems with accents. Hopefully he is new and will get better. The listen was a bit tedious at times!

Day Zero “Part 1”

Before purchase, I thought many of the reviews were excessively harsh; saying this book had no ending. But, with the first 4 books of the Quinn series already in my library, I was invested. So, I crossed my fingers and downloaded this 5th installment. Overall, I’m glad I did ... though, now I find myself in agreement with those other reviewers!

If Cameron and his publisher were honest, they would have added “Part 1” to the title because, clearly, their cheap little marketing stunt (in true ‘Who shot JR?’ TV, cliffhanger fashion) seemed to relish going out of their way to purposely tangle up so many convoluted sub-plots and characters before just walking away from any sort of finale. Come on, Marc! Wipe that smug “Gotcha” look off your face. That’s just mean. If this had been my first or second Quinn book, it would have been my last.

Except for the disingenuous epilogue, this version of Jericho’s series is a thrill ride with the many creative twists and turns we’ve come to expect & appreciate. Thus, I’ll bite my lip, give it high marks, and look forward to “Part 2” of the story ... if only to see how Cameron plans to escape the multiple corners he seems to have written himself into.

I’ve not given up on the series. But, what started out feeling special 5 books ago is starting to feel cookie-cutter routine. Another overt, non-ending one like this is going to negatively impact my decision to keep forking over $15 for a partial storyline.
