Publisher's Summary

In the aftermath of a devastating biological attack, America stands on the brink of disaster. The president of the United States is controlled by terrorists. The vice president, global mastermind Lee McKeon, is plotting his next move. And Special Agent Jericho Quinn is running for his life. Desperate to clear his name - and expose the conspirators in the White House - Quinn must race against time before McKeon can execute his evil plan.

It begins with heightened security, mass surveillance, and the establishment of a brutal police state. It can only end in the takeover of America. The only thing standing between democracy and destruction is a man named Quinn...and one perfectly aimed bullet.

    "Excellent Jerico Quinn thriller!"

    What I like most about author Marc Cameron is his development of his characters. After six novels we get to know and understand special agent Jerico Quinn, but also his agent girlfriend, his ex-wife, his young daughter, his boss, his one-eyed ex-Marine fellow agent Jacques Tibodeux, their Japanese female trainer, rand really bad guy Lee McKeon. We had met Tibodeux's wife earlier in the series but we learned much more about her in Brute Force. What I like least about Cameron is that his novels are not consistently superb; most are but two have been mediocre. Brute Force is a superb action thriller.

    Tim Weiner does a credible job of narration but some of the accents he attempts, especially of the Chinese female character, is simply outside his voice range. I do love his voice for Tibodeux.

    "Brute Force"
    Any additional comments?

    All in audiobook format, this review references 6 books in the Jericho Quinn series. Most are narrated by Tom Weiner, State of Emergency by Luke Daniels. All are between 10-11 hours of listening, so in total, all represent approximately 65 hours of the Jericho Quinn adventures.

    Jericho Quinn is a Mitch Rapp (Vince Flynn), Jason Bourne (Robert Ludlum), Jack Ryan (Tom Clancy) … well, you get the idea. He’s the self deprecating good-guy-tough-guy, who loves motorcycles, that the world turns to in the event of an apocalyptic threat. Jericho and a few secondary heroes/heroine are the go-to characters for the Director of National Intelligence. Quinn’s code name is the ‘hammer’ … which should give you an idea regarding collective mission objectives.

    The bad guys are middle eastern, the weapons that of mass destruction. Think bio weapons, nuclear warheads, dirty bombs, and the feverous attempts to quell what initially seems inevitable.

    The Jericho Quinn stories are complex and a myriad of unrelated events are intermingled into a satisfactory conclusion. Each novel can stand-alone, but characters move through each book to the next. Some have a very distinct cliff-hanging ending prompting the reader to move forward to the next book to get any closure. Pay attention, moments are sometimes hard to follow without re-wind. Although these stories usually bring together seemingly disparate events, Cameron goes overboard a bit, in my opinion. There are many scenes that seem to add little, if anything, to the plots, and could easily have been removed. But, that’s just me, and you may come to a different conclusion. Basically, in my opinion, the books are good, but could have been shorter and less confusing.

    Narration is fine. I take no issue with either reader. Luke Daniels has a unique take on the bad guy’s voice, however … a bit grating. But, he’s the bad guy, you’re not supposed to like him :-). You’ll have no trouble discerning who-says-what-to-who with either narrator.

    Many of the well known authors of this genre, like those previously mentioned, are dead, and with them their wonderful characters. In my humble opinion, with this series Marc Cameron is making a credible effort to fill the void with Jericho Quinn.

    If you like the genre, you’ll like these stories … and Jericho Quinn. Enjoy!

    "Solid Read"

    After read the majority of the series I found this book to fall line with the rest of the books. if you liked them you'll like this one. It's a solid read.

    "Wanted to Like This Book"

    I wanted to like this book. Love the Jericho Quinn character and liked the earlier books. But I finally gave up 4 hours into listening.

    Brute Force, the 6th of the series, was boring to me and too disconnected from the previous story line. I didn't know if Marc Cameron was trying to force a story or just ran out of inspiration. The first 4 Jericho Quinn books were awesome. The 5th took a while to get going but eventually I liked it. This one was painful to listen to.

    I can't remember a book I had to put down or delete from my audible library without finishing. But this one was a huge disappointment to me. The story failed to draw me in and keep my interest. The characters while familiar from previous books (Quinn, Garcia, Tibedo) had no intriguing story lines and even the action wasn't up to par with the early Jericho Quinn books.

    My recommendation: skip this book.

    "Awesome!"

    Great action book, superbly narrated. Plenty of twists in the plot but still flowed smoothly from first word to last.

    "Thanks for another 5 Star story and performance!"

    Marc Cameron and Tom Weiner are the greatest pair! They know how to write and perform together in order to keep the readers on the edge of their seats. I can't wait to see the next episode in Jericho Quinn's life.

    "Satisfying conclusion to this series"

    Jericho has been battling this group of villains for several books. Villains lose hero's win.

    "Great story but bad ending"
    If you could sum up Brute Force in three words, what would they be?

    Good until the end


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

    Yes. Good


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

    The end goes from one extreme to another with no explanation.

    "Jericho Quote AWESOME"

    Read book before I listened to this. Two completely different experiences. I was a bit distracted by the similarities in the female voices. Loved it, couldn't put it down.
