That’s more like it. Cameron got it back on track with this one. Quinn and Company’s story is getting serious now. From the first page this one was fantastic. The story was written in 2014 but there were plenty points that were frighteningly close to our real life today.

Cameron wrote Japan so well that I felt like I was there. He wrote this terrorist plot so well that I was worried about it’s real life viability. The story will continue to develop in the next book. Can’t wait.

Warning: there is a spoiler at the end of this review, so don't read it, if you don't want to know.

Another explosive thriller by Marc Cameron sees Jericho Quinn trying to track down the assassin who tried to murder his daughter, all while being chased himself for a murder that he did not commit. Thankfully, he has his trusty friends to help, whether he wants them to or not. Like the previous novels, the book could have been taken straight from the news pages, and it's scary to think of the peopl

Audiobook Review - I absolutely love Marc Cameron's Jericho Quinn character. He is a Mitch Rapp (Vince Flynn), Scot Harvath (Brad Thor), Dewey Andreas (Ben Coes)… well, you get the idea. He’s the good-guy-tough-guy, who loves motorcycles and sharp knives, that the world turns to in the event of an apocalyptic threat. Quinn and a few secondary heroes/heroine are the go-to characters for the Director of National Intelligence. The Jericho Quinn books are a myriad of unrelated events that are interm ...more

A disappointment to me after the first three novels by Cameron. While the first three are a series, they are tied together in a way that doesn't really leave the reader hanging at the end of each book. In Time Of Attack, that is not the case.

Also, I thought the quality of writing in Time of Attack was not up to par with the first three books, either. Not enough story, too many chases and fights. Action junkies will like this, but those who look for a little more substance in the book will find i

Another solid Jericho Quinn story. I'm a fan of this series so I have no plans on stopping even though the quality has declined since the brilliant debut novel. There's some great story in this one. It's set largely in the US and Japan, and reveals the back story of one of the most interesting characters in the series - Emoki Miyagi. She's always been a mystery, so it's great to finally see the events that led to her working with Quinn and company.

Unfortunately there are some issues here, some m

I was just looking for a mindless read – a story that didn’t require a lot of concentration, just action. Marc Cameron’s 4th in the Jericho Quinn series fit the bill. Actually, I got more than I bargained for. (I didn’t remember that Cameron was such a good writer.)

There are two or three plot lines going on simultaneously. Terrorists from Pakistan, with help on North Korea, introduce a plague in the US – and not only a single attack, but further methods to spread the virus. (Yikes! Stories of b

Exciting , fast moving, violent...and prescient.
Written in 2014, “ Time of Attack” stars super-secret- agent Jericho Quinn in a quest for revenge that takes him, and the reader, to Japan. It begins when Quinn, his wife and daughter attend a ceremony at the Air Force Academy. Also there, a rifle shot away, is an assassin, whose shot hits not Quinn, but his wife, who is badly wounded .
Meanwhile, the nation’s enemies have unleashed a pestilence on the US. A horrible, highly infectious disease has s

(2 1/2). This is the third book I have read in this series and it was the weakest one. There is a little too much of “same old, same old” here, and definitely not enough of the best wingman ever, Jacques Thibodaux. I did like the fact that this is not your same old fairytale and that there is still real evil in the world. Jericho is still an interesting superhuman sort of protagonist and Cameron must be a real motorcycle enthusiast because his descriptions of some of Jericho’s exploits on bikes ...more

Jericho Quinn is at it again. Very enjoyable thriller from the author who has ghost-written several recent Tom Clancy novels. His hero is a near invincible Air Force intelligence officer who, with his crew of equally invincible supporting cast, is out to save the world, one bad guy at a time. Cameron know whereof he speaks, having been in law enforcement for 26 years. He does his research and with impeccable sources, crafts a thrillers that keep you up way too late!

Thought provoking storyline.

Again the author brings his characters to life and delivers another great storyline with lots of twists and turns that captivates the imagination and creates a storyline although fictional that could be in the world today. This storyline mirrors in some way what is happening today with the Corona virus, and unfortunately the possibilities for the spread of such a potent weapon in the hands of people who are engaged in acts of terrorism.

This was one of the worst books written about foreign intrigue I have ever read. The plot dragged along with way too much detail about clothing, area descriptions, and empty narratives and backgrounds that were unnecessary. If you shaved about one hundred pages of drivel from this book it still wouldn't rate a stronger rating. The ending turned out to be a cliffhanger, and judging by the writing style of the author, I was not about to waste my time on the next book in the series. ...more

Three cheers and a great read. This series must be read in order so you can know who the players are and how they intertwine. You can see a building to a climax. I listen to the audiobooks, but the reader keeps changing which is annoying, but I like the series stories enough I put up with it.
This one takes Quinn to Japan to escape a bum murder wrap.

I really enjoy Marc Cameron and his main protagonist, Jericho Quinn. This book picks up where the 2 left off with an assassination attempt on a member of Quinn's group. Get ready for some non-stop action as Quinn eventually ends up in Japan fighting with Japanese mafia. However, that may be the least of his problems as a new leader comes into power. Can't wait to read the next one. ...more

it is interesting to note that when this book was written Marc Cameron used the terms - pandemic, social distancing and self-isolation. All these terms are being used now as we contend with a virus world wide - the story varies as to the signs of the infection and where it originated - the current pandemic has had no effects on any political officials in the US resulting in deaths.

A Jericho Quinn cliffhanger

Again Cameron has written a story so hard to put down. I kept reading to see what would happen next. The characters were believable and seem like old friends or devious villains. Just when you think you know what will happen next Cameron shoots off in a new direction. Keeps you guessing to the end, if it really is the end.

I am enjoying the style of Marc Cameron.
While keeping the main character front and center, I really enjoyed how some of the "lesser" minor characters are brought forward in unveiling this "chapter" of the series as well as introducing new characters into the storyline. By the end of this one, you'll be certain there is a much larger connection weaving throughout all of the books so far ...

3.5. Another excellent installment in the Jericho Quinn series. I loved the setting in Fukuoka, where my husband lived for a couple of years and I have visited. This one felt a lot more violent than some of his previous novels (maybe just because I read the end out loud to my husband and whoa!), hence the 3.5 star rating.

Excellent Story! Wow, Wow, Wow!

Each Quinn novel continues to flesh out the main characters sometime at a drip and others with a flood. Really great job tying the past with the present for Myagi and Palmer along with a potential new villain! Big changes are in store for Quinn after this! Read on!
Fourth book in the Jericho Quinn series, which means I read the 5th book before I read this. I am not sure I have done that before. Anyway, I still enjoyed this even though a couple of surprises were ruined. This is just a fun, quick series to read and this time it includes a pandemic and the Yakuza. I would have liked more with the virus even with living through COVID. On to book 6.

Marc Cameron is weaving a great story with his centerpiece Jericho Quinn. Lots of action in this one. Fun read. Start with book 1 if you wish to get the entire plot line. Highly recommended

Wow, wow, wow!

Eerily similar to real life these past two years and this was written in '14. I was blown away by the similarities.

This particular book is open-ended so I am very much looking forward to Jericho healing enough to conquer his next terrorist...or two.
