Soon after arriving, an explosion rocks the Park, leaving many hurt and thousands fleeing for cover. Separated from their loved ones, Quinn and Thibodaux seek to neutralize t ...more

Great short story

In sticking w the Jericho Quinn theme this was a heart pounding short story that shows the ruthlessness that Quinn and Garcia and Thibadeaux use to save American lives. Great action and just long enough to finish in an hour or two!

An action packed, non-stop, thriller. It's like watching a 90's action film. Love it.

Jericho Quinn has quickly become my favorite character. Marc Cameron continues to outdo himself with each book in this series. While waiting for the next book, Mr. Cameron gives us Dead Drop to whet our appetite in a short story about at a normal day gone bad at a Theme Park. One reason I loved this book so much was how Mr. Cameron utilized all of the characters. His writing lets you get to know each one and you are drawn into their world of danger. For anyone looking for a great series read, th ...more

Every summer, thousands of families head to the nation’s largest water park, famous for its 21-story waterslide the “Dead Drop.” This year, one visitor didn’t pack his bathing suit. He packed explosives. When the bomb goes off, dozens of people are instantly killed. The rest are herded into the park’s massive pool by the bomber’s accomplices. An organized team of fanatical but well-trained terrorists, they seal off the entrances, turn the waterslide into a watchtower, and train their sights on t ...more

Dead on!

Amusement Park gone gruesome, thanks to terrorists intent on creating as much carnage and death as possible, hopeful of media coverage that would (in their own sick and twisted minds) immortalize their deaths and bring glory to their cause... but enter Jericho Quinn and his side-kicks and these punks find themselves on the receiving-end of brutal, as they get a taste of what very angry and very lethal adversaries have to offer!

Believable (unfortunately) plot, great characters, and action
Jericho Quinn and his friends Ronnie Garcia and Jacques Thibodaux are at a Virginia water park with their families when Islamic extremists take over the facility with a plan to martyr themselves in front of the world's media. Unluckily for them, Jericho Quinn is a wolf amongst the sheep, and very keen to ensure the bad guys don't walk out alive. A fast, violent, sharp and exciting novella to whet our collective appetites for the next full-length Quinn adventure.

Weak and rather boring

I found Dead Drop rather boring , with childish plot and unlike all other Jericho Quinn novels I read before.

The author piles up killings of innocents, stupid and poorly organized terrorists-teenagers, the theft which is the real goal of that terrorist attack and non-stop talking of the main hero Quinn about his love for his daughter in rather incoherent heap, which left me bored and indifferent to the story.

This is a short story in the Jericho Quinn series, that sees Jericho and his friend having a day out at an amusement park. What starts as a family outing, soon descends into panic, as terrorists take over the park and start shooting everyone they find! This is a a good story, but as a short, does not really develop the characters, as a full novel does. It is worth reading and fills a gap, until the next full length novel arrives.

R U Kidding me

Love the series and the characters. But putting out an appetizer instead of a meal is not right!!!
It almost seamed a waste of 15 min! The true fans of this series should be less than happy of the cliff note book.
We wait a good amount of time in between releases to only have a taste.

Much too short.....

Good story wish it had been longer. Had really good "bones" to it. All Jericho Quinn books are pretty good. Really enjoy Maddy and Ronnie characters and Thibedoeaux and his whole family. Please keep all these great stories coming, they are really exciting to read. Thanks, Amarillo Turtle

Really short all action book.

This seemed more like an action packed short story than a novel. It was entertaining in a die hard kind of way but it was better than watching tv. Of course that’s a pretty low bar.

Interesting, but...

...this little short story had a somewhat interesting plot, but it was over quite quickly as our two heroes were heroes and got all the bad guys. I felt like this was a waste of time.

This is the seventh Marc Cameron book I've read in the last few months. I like his cast of characters, but several of the ones I've read have very similar plots. This one was different, and I liked it the best of all I've read.

A terrific ebook novella of non-stop action featuring Cameron's stable of bad ass characters.

Not a good effort

I've love the Jericho Quinn novels for the action, twists, etc. This one was disappointing on many levels. I would skip it.

Quick action_

In keeping with the other Quinn books. My major complaint is that it's too short. Still a good story that could be all too real.

Good story, but a short story not a novel. Should have pointed that out. I have always enjoyed his books . I would not have purchased if I had realized it was a short story 118 pages.

A new Quinn favorite from Cameron

Loved watching this story unfold in real time! What a ride of non-stop adrenaline... And I was only reading!!! Love these characters!

Written badly.

I have read all of the series and this is terrible. The people sound like children and the interaction between Quinn and Jacques is sophomoric.

Can't stop reading

This is probably the fastest I've ever read, it's too tense to put down for even a second. The only problem with this book is how short it is!

My only problem with this short story is that it ended to quickly. Another great read by Mr. Cameron.

Tons of non stop action

The short story is non stop action and gets a bit emotional with Quinn's daughter in danger too. Enjoyed the book.

Short but plenty of action

This was a quick read but lots of action. Terrorists in an amusement park battling Jericho Quinn and Jacques Thibodeaux. What more could you ask for?
