Publisher's Summary

A simple mission for a CIA analyst turns into a nightmare chase across Europe in this exciting debut thriller.

When a commercial aircraft makes an emergency landing at an Iranian military base, it looks like a crisis has been narrowly avoided. But for undercover intelligence analyst Zac Miller, the CIA-staged crash landing is the only part of his assignment that goes right.

What was supposed to be a simple surveillance mission quickly heads south when the Iranians apprehend the smooth-talking American. Never trained to be a field operative, Zac's in over his head, especially when it turns out escaping from captivity is only the beginning of his problems. On the run across Europe from both Iranian agents and Western authorities who are convinced he's defected, Zac finds himself fighting for his life, with no guarantee he'll even have one to go back to....

Outstanding Excellent Superb etc etc etc...

I really hope that this book is the beginning of a series. I thought it was fantastic. Once I started listening I could not stop until the book ended, and even then I was sorry when it was over. I mean this poor guy, Zac Miller went from one impossible situation to the next and I kept thinking that something was going to happen. Some kind of circumstance that he would not be able to get out of. This book is so well written and the character of Zac is so unassuming that he seems to come up with these half baked plans on the fly. What makes him stand apart from so many other characters in espionage books is that Miller doesn't sit a map out a strategy. His opponents and conflicts just happen on his way to escaping Iran where his plane made an emergency landing.
This book is excellent fast paced reading and the ending leaves it open for additional books (one can only hope).
Jonathan Davis does an outstanding job narrating.
My HIGHEST RECOMMENDATIONS!!

Espionage thriller with a history!

Warning Light was originally self published by the author and released in paperback format only (no Kindle ebook release!) on June 28, 2014. The novel sold reasonably well considering the format limitation and received rave reviews, but the paperback only release severely limited sales. So this week Random House re-released the book as an original release in multiple formats and with all of the marketing power of the publisher. The marketing included very positive blurbs from Lee Child, Mark Greaney, Alex Berensen, Steve Berry, James Abel, and Grant Blaackwood. They've scheduled an extensive book signing tour with the author and several other famous espionage thriller authors.

Warning Light is an excellent espionage thriller with a refreshing protagonist in young CIA analyst Zac Miller who finds himself trapped and hunted as a spy in Iran without the ability to speak Farsi. The plot is clever and complex. The Iranian regime is also clever as it sets up Miller to also be hunted by his own and allied agencies after escaping Iran. Jonathan Davis narrates superbly. I highly recommend Warning Light as a action filled and very suspenseful espionage thriller. The hype is justified.

An Unexpected Homerun

This book was nothing like I expected. Going into it, all I knew is that I love Jonathan Davis as a narrator. He is one of the best in the business, in my opinion, and so right from the get-go, I knew I would AT LEAST like the narrator. The book, however, went above and beyond my expectations. It starts out exciting, and it ends in a nonstop action scene. There is even a twist that I never saw coming, and you won't either.

I can't recommend this book enough. This is one of the best books I have heard in a long time.

Don't wait and get it now!

Terrific, fast-paced story telling

This book starts off with a bang and continues with non-stop action. The Audible production is excellent and fun listening. Can't wait for the author's next book!

Great listen, Story never slowed down.

Loved the story and the main character. Nice thing is I was never able to catch my breath but maybe just a bit more reality. Over all I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to the sequel.

Disappointed

The first quarter of book is very promising but writer has lost the narrative later. I was still hopefull to discover some plot but alas i kept waiting. There is no plot except to put the protagonist in tough situations and those situations are created through a very badly plotted storyline. The narration is hopeless. Over dramatics in narration is irritating at the best and his voice modulation should carry a warning for ones using headphones, cause at times u can hardly make out what's said and the next moment u pull out ur headphones.
All in all a very bad experience

Excellent story!

A terrific narrative taking place in contemporary Iran. The author’s research provides a great deal of interesting insight into the culture and history of this land interwoven with the adventures of a thoroughly likable hero.

A Jack Ryan rip-off

Untrained CIA Analyst gets pressed into being a, field operative in Iran. The fit hits the shan and on and on.
I think Tom Clancy’s poor hillbilly step-cousin, ripped off the Jack Ryan character and called the work, his own.

PS: Jonathan Davis does a commendable job reading this train wreck.

A Bumbling Romp

The book is O.K. but strains credibility in both fact and outcome for nearly every death defying scenario the author invents.
