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!

Excellent!

Outstanding first effort! This has the makings of a great series. I’m being overly critical when I say that there were a couple of moments in the book that seemed a bit of a reach, but I was really glad I used a credit! The narrator is excellent! Again being a bit critical he tries a couple times to add urgency or excitement and it doesn’t translate to audio very well. Other than those few moments his narration is spectacular! As a fan of this genre with 600+ audiobooks behind me, I’d say this author is starting out at the top of the heap of great action writers.

Fun but lite thriller

Fun story but character very two dimensional, a bit too lucky, and story becomes to simplistic. Fun and lite but a book you won't think about again a day after you finish.
