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

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

If you like books by Vince Flynn or Barry Eisler, Ben Coes or Taylor Stevens, you'll like Marc Cameron's Time of Attack. Well-researched with great action.

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

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!

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.

Typical spy novel

Good Read but you can almost figure out ahead what was going to happen. However, I will probably still read more from this author.

wonderful. review soonWow. That's about it. Wow. I've never read anything by Marc Cameron, certainly nothing in this Jericho Quinn series, but I assure you I intend to correct that oversight. I was hooked by the idea of a bio-terrorist attack and Mr. Cameron never once disappointed me. I'm not going to waste time with a summary of the plot. You who read my reviews regularly know I don't usually do that. It doesn't seem necessary. Read the book!

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

Time of Attack is a part of the Jericho Quinn series by Cameron, but can be read as a stand-alone novel. This book has two parallel story lines, the first centering on Special Agent Quinn. While attending a friend's wedding, his ex-wife is shot by a sniper who was aiming for his young daughter. Quinn then goes on a hunt to track down the mysterious woman who left his ex-wife without a leg. Along the way he encounters many interesting characters, and ends up traveling to Japan in an effort to ...more

Cameron brings Jericho Quinn back for another adventure that is sure to leave the reader's head spinning. When an assassin's bullet wreaks havoc, Quinn is determined to get to the bottom of this before anyone else can suffer, as his ex-wife clings to life. While following leads and trying to track down the sniper, based on eyewitness accounts, he is drawn into the history of a friend's past, which may hold all the secrets he needs to uncover his own mystery.

Non stop action

One if the most exciting books I've ever read. I can't wait to read the next in the series. Highly recommended
Marc Cameron is one of the new breed of thriller author that has emerged in the last several years along with Ben Coes, Matthew Dunn and others that give us the impression that the thriller genre is in good hands for years to come.
Cameron is very distinctive also in that you will never see an F bomb or foul language in his books or extreme sexual situations. This is very refreshing. His books are still awesome and his bad guys are still just as despicable.

Super Secret Special Agent Jericho Quinn is back in a two-pronged story. First, a member of his family is shot, and Quinn is out for vengeance. He leaves a bloody trail in his wake, from Colorado to Japan. Much of the story is centered around his relationship with his mentor and sensie, resulting in an inordinate amount of sword fighting and another bloody trail in Japan.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch in the US, grimy politicians are trying to manipulate the balance of power

Time of Attack is a Jericho Quinn novel, and evidently these novels are quite well thought of by many. The premise involves a deadly virus, a plague introduced as an act of terrorism.

Interesting: the way the plague is introduced by infecting soldiers about to return home from Afghanistan as they get hair cuts and the way infections are continued in the States through nail salons. The possibility of a fatal virus as a form of warfare feels both possible and frightening, and I've always been
