Publisher's Summary

Warning! The next attack on American soil will come from within.

From coast to coast, the nation is witnessing a new wave of terror - suicide bombers incite blind panic and paralyzing fear, a flight attendant tries to crash an airliner, a police officer opens fire on fans in a stadium, and at CIA headquarters, a deputy director goes on a murderous rampage. The perpetrators appear to be American but are actually covert agents in a vast network of terror, selected and trained for one purpose only: the complete annihilation of America.

Special Agent Jericho Quinn has seen the warning signs. As a classified “instrument” of the CIA reporting directly to the president, Quinn knows that these random acts of violence pose a clear and present danger, but he may not be able to stop it. The search for terrorists has escalated into an all-out witch hunt, and somehow, Quinn’s name is on the list.

Marc Cameron, a native of Texas, has spent over 25 years in law enforcement, the last twenty with the federal government. His assignments have taken him from rural Alaska to Manhattan, Canada to Mexico, and points in between. Having earned a second-degree black belt in jujitsu, he often teaches defensive tactics to other law enforcement agencies and civilian groups. He currently lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife and motorcycle.

    "Just OK"

    This novel was just "OK". Good enough to finish but not one of those knock your socks off edge of the seat thrillers. It seemed to me like some of the book might have been skipped and in some ways reminded me of an abridged version. Like one minute one of the main characters is in the hospital in serious condition and being confronted by her security guard and in the next scene she's with another character helping to thwart a terrorist plot. What happened in between? The plot was a little choppy and hard to follow, especially in the second part.

    "Not Marc Cameron's best effort!"

    Book 6 of Marc Cameron's Jericho Quinn series will be released next month and I have preordered it. The series has great characters; Alaskan Jericho Quinn, his wonderful daughter, Quinn's ex-wife, Quinni's wild and crazy but reliable younger brother, and Quinn's huge US Marine friend who is always available.

    Books 1, 4 and 5 in the series are outstanding novels. This novel, Book 2, as well as Book 3 are just average and are therefore disappointing. The storyline has unfilled potential in both cases.

    I trust the Book 6, Brute Force, will not disappoint. Cameron is capable of writing great military and espionage thrillers.

    "Skip this one!"

    I can remember only two times in my life that I did not finish a book, no matter how bad it was. This book was one of the two times. The primary problem is the narration, which is something I am able to ignore usually. In this case, the narration was so bad that it made the story harder to follow. I tried to get through it, but could not. After many fitful starts, I finally decided it was time to put it down. I already had many books in my library waiting to be read and I decided I did not want to waste time on this one. I actually listened to 2/3 of the book, but just could not finish. The plot jumps around a lot and normally I would not mind, but in this case, I had difficulty figuring out "who's on first??") I will admit that I do like the character, so I may try another one in this series before giving up entirely (especially since I already purchased another one.) This one, however, is not worth your time. There are plenty of good books to listen to without wasting time on a book that is marginal at best.

    "Please Narrator - keep your characters straight."
    Would you try another book from Marc Cameron and/or Tom Weiner?

    Already into the series, gotta finish it.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Marc Cameron? Why or why not?

    Yes, but in no way related to the narrator


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Couldn't keep characters straight.


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

    Like the story, dislike the narrator. Hard to get emotionally involved with a narrator who has multiple a personality disorder.

    "This book was fine."

    Narrator was good. Story was a touch far fetched for my taste but written well.

    Story
    "do not buy"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    it a part of a periodical, not a book.


    What was most disappointing about Marc Cameron’s story?

    I can't quite understand why I need to pay for several books to get one story. If you write a book, finish the story lines. Otherwise call it monthly or something.


    Have you listened to any of Tom Weiner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not yet, I will. He's brilliant.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It made me angry that it did not have a finish.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't buy

    "excellent story, great narrator"

    while the story started a bit slow it very quickly picked up steam and was well narrated. I look forward to the next book in the series.
