I very much enjoy reading Marc Cameron s thrillers The only detracting point, a la Lee Lofland and others where oh where are Cameron s editors and frankly, many other editors on the use of cordite page 218 One can t know the smell of cordite unless one is approximately a hundred years old it was last most widely used in the late 1800s up through WWI, and somewhat in WWII It simply is not in use now enpedia wiki CorditeEverything else about this book is Cameron at his finest the many action scene [...]
Whatever terrifying scenarios can be imagined in a world of international terrorists, drug dealers, arms dealers, spies and just plain ruthless characters, Marc Cameron has brought them all together in State of Emergency, the third thriller featuring Special Agent Jericho Quinn.After two college students who have been traveling in Finland die gruesome deaths from radiation poisoning, and a Russian and an American special agent are murdered, Quinn is put on the case, even as he trails the United [...]
It was an interesting departure for the Jericho Quinn novels for him to be in the desert and jungle settings of South America rather than the typical US Middle East settings I find myself drawn to the characters, wanting of their stories and desiring them to move on with their lives Cameron doesn t disappoint as we see and of the characters character emerge A few of the situations that they got out of were a little predictable and convenient However in typical fashion, I couldn t put down the [...]
Another good read from Marc Cameron Cameron s protagonist, Jericho Quinn, compares nicely to Mitch Rapp, John Wells, and others in the spy terrorist hunter type action thriller On the down side, Cameron is leaning and toward the cliff hanger ending Too bad, too An author of an action series should let his work compel the reader on to the next novel, not a cliff hanger ending.
Nearly gave this three stars, but ended up with 4 His previous two books were about an independent operator stopping international terrorist incidents with a lot of motorcycle and knife use This one seems to be about motorcycles and knives with a side plot about terrorists Just felt like he lost his focus and was forcing the plot along.
Lots of different players that sometimes it was hard to keep track of who was who and what affiliation they had I don t believe that in the end our guy had to die The chance was always there, but we could have tried to take out the prissy spanish guy instead.I loved the South American settings though and it was interesting to learn a little about motorcycle racing.
Love the Jericho Quinn series s Love the Jericho Quinn series s This genre is one of my favorites Great fast read filled with action adventure Love the new Russian character Can t wait to read the next book I recommended series
Powerful read, Cameron does it again The spectre of what people of bad intent want to do to the rest of us evolves and those that rise up to stand against them deserve our admiration and support.
Another one Thanks MC.
Very realistic Keeps you on the edge of your seat
A good story from Marc Cameron It has been out for a while so I read it as I have become a Cameron serial reader Great action from Jericho Quinn that comes with a cliff hanger.
State of Emergency by Marc Cameron is the third book of the Jericho Quinn series.In the USA, a college student dies in suspicious circumstances only minutes after entering a hospital s emergency room Before dying, she confesses that she has been carrying drugs in her stomach, concealed in condoms, and fears one of them must have burst However, the speediness of her demise suggests a cause of death other than a drug overdose.It is soon confirmed that the actual cause of death is radiation poisoni [...]
All in audiobook format, this review references the first 3 books in the Jericho Quinn series Two, National Security and Act of Terror, are narrated by Tom Weiner, State of Emergency by Luke Daniels All are between 10 11 hours of listening, so in total, these three represent approximately 30 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 lo [...]
I will begin my review by saying I was very much looking fwd to reading this book I was not familiar with Mr Cameron s previous work However, I always enjoy political spy thrillers of this nature My two favorite authors are Vince Flynn and Brad Thor Keeping in mind Brad Thor had a recommendation on the cover, I was anticipating a good read.However, I found this book very unrewarding.This is just my opinion but I just was not a fan of Mr Cameron s writing style I think he goes way overboard in th [...]
Marc Cameron returns with another action packed novel that leaves the reader on the edge of their seats from cover to cover When bombs simultaneously explode in the US and Russia, some form of terrorist plot is suspected Chechens claim responsibility in Russia, but the plot seems too similar to be discounted as a coincidence Top secret US Government intel points to a ruthless Venezuelan whose lust for power and mental instability rivals that of Hugo Chavez With an old Soviet era bomb now in his [...]
Jericho Quinn is an Air Force investigator tasked to a special operations unit used to seek out and either expose or neutralize terrorist threats that can t be addressed through normal channels State of Emergency is his third tale.When a Cold War era backpack nuclear bomb goes missing and explosions kill dozens in the U.S and Russia, intelligence points to a shadowy network led by a Latin American sociopath Quinn and his team have to track down the nuke, the radioactive material smuggled to its [...]
Get your mind revved up for a race down the speedway of suspense with this one A page turner that will keep you up into the wee hours A real thriller not for the faint at heart Extremely descriptively well written.Air Force OSI agent Jericho Quinn allies with a female Russian agent Aleksandra who has the same goal to track down dismantle an old Soviet era small atom bomb nicknamed the Baba Yaga , which has ended up in the hands of a black market arms dealer The chase goes into various countries [...]

Another in a series with Jericho Quinn, the international hammer The author continues to strengthen his storytelling, with characters to mix and match with the hero The story goes from the international race in Dakar that I had never heard of to various locales in South America An interesting plot though for the first time, it was really slow in getting moving after the opening scene setting the stage I am ready to read the next novel Since Vince Flynn can no longer write, it is good to have th [...]
Jericho Quinn is back with his friends to stop another terrorist plot against the USA Action packed, interesting story, great thrills and excellent characters, this is another winner from Marc Cameron I found the epilogue worrying because it feels like Mr Cameron may be going the route that many thriller writers take I m being vague so as not to spoil anything but it will be interesting to see if I m right in the next book.
State of EmergencyI gave this book 5 Stars because it deserves it I traveled from desert to jungle, from the highest mountain to Flat land Action packed from start to finish And just when you think this is the highest point of action, you find out around the corner is much waiting then one can imagine Jericho is not just any Agent, he is above and still a Gentleman Marc Cameron, do not stop writing I am looking forward to each one of your books.
State of Emergency Jericho Quinn series 3 Cameron takes you to the action and adventure in such a way that you are part of the action How to stop a nuclear bomb going off in the middle of a huge crowd or an American city when you have only the slimmest chance of finding it before it explodes Follow Jericho and his teammates across the country and the world as they attempt to do just that Thanks for another great read.
Another good story packed full of action of fighting terrorists and saving the world I was a little surprised that the storyline at the start of the book wasn t wrapped up before the end of the book The ending did provide for a new cliff hanger which will compel me to read the fourth book in the series.
Anlother awesome book from Marc Cameron I havve already pre ordered his next book Time of Attack His characters are wonderfully portrayed and the dialogue is smooth I miss the Mitch Rapp character by Vince Flyyn RIP , so started reading thiese hoping to fill that void Jericho has not disappointed me With all the bad guys out there, I hope Jericho will continue for many books.
Best yet, but I still have several books to go This one has a lead into the next in the series who gets shot on the last page Starting to read like a Saturday morning action serial Several strong female characters, but will the author keep them active in the next few books Rate this as a 3.75
The plot was somewhat difficult to follow as the book moved from one character s activities to another The foreign names made it difficult for me to keep track of all the players and how they interacted with one another and the main character Overall the book was enjoyable but the ending was rather disappointing as it was somewhat predictable.
Another entry in the genre I ve stolen a nuclear weapon Catch me if you can Plenty of action here as the story winds through South America, Mexico, and Texas The main character is typically bullet proof and has a cast of supporting characters to assist him in tracking down the perpetrators.
Even better than the last one.What a ride At the risk of being a spoiler alert this fast pace full of action thriller, takes us from Russia to Miami to Venezuela and Texas And don t stop to take a breath you will miss a lot of the ride Great book, and the returning characters grow even compelling On to the next adventure.
Another winner It s thrilling to read Marc Cameron s Jerico Quinn books You get hooked and wish immediately to go to the next one but you hesitate because it s than I want to pay So unless I get credits from , this will most likely be the last one of Jericho Quinn s thriller for me If you can afford them all, I guarantee you won t be disappointed
