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

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

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 b

(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.

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.

Non-stop excitement and action. Unresolved plot leaves you ready and waiting for the next book. Likeable characters. Highly recommended for those who like action novels.

Shelves: action
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.

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.

As usual, another fantastic Jericho Quinn book. I would have hope that a more positive reaction would have happened. There were so many thing that are consistent with today's pandemic that actually scarry.

Best One yet. This one is very appropriate for the current pandemic. I couldn't put it down. I'm so glad I waited to start this series so I can go through them all without a 6 month wait between releases. Can't wait to see what happens next.

I did not see that ending coming. Quinn and his friends will have a battle on their hands in book 5.

Getting pretty far out there Marc. Thanks for fleshing out some of the back stories. On to the next one

I loved the characters and multiple settings. I will continue to follow Jericho and Ronnie’s relationship and Jacques explosive personality.

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.

Pretty good. A little love, a little disease, and motorcycles, plus gunfights and sword fights.
