Mixing some new locales and an interesting thrill angle, Cameron succeeds again at impressing his reading core.

Unfortunately, I couldn't get into this from the start and have to take a DNF.
I don't like giving bad reviews so please don't let my dislike discourage you from reading this one as variety is the spice of life.
Nothing here brought me into the reading though I sure tried my best.
I hope you find this well and you enjoy this one.
Thank you to the author for this advanced readers copy in exchange for this honest review.

An explosive, heat-pounding thrill ride from one of my favorite authors. Cuban general Zayda de la Guardia and his personal little group of trained assassins made a major mistake when they killed Jericho Quinn’s friend and now Jericho and his team head to Cuba to find out why. It turns out there’s a Russian nuke left over from the Cuban Missile Crisis and the renegade General de la Guardia plans to blow up Miami with it. And it’s up to Jericho's crew to keep that from happening. They will do ...more

4 Stars

I was torn between 3 and 4 stars on this one, but because this is the first Jericho Quinn novel I’ve read and I’m jumping into the middle of the series I decided to round up to 4. I think more familiarity with the characters would have made the book more enjoyable and there was still plenty here to send me to the beginning of the series to catch up.

So a Cuban defector lands on a beach in south Florida and is almost immediately killed by

It's been a long wait for a new adventure With Jericho Quinn but I'm not dissapointed. As usual Marc Cameron tells a great story. This one is full of suspense and some action, you also find out more about some of the characters background which is always nice. I don't like to repeat myself but I have to thank #Kensingtonbooks and #Netgalley for letting me read another entertaining book. I can really recommend this series and only hope that the next one is on the way.

Wow what a brilliant book!
I read a lot of military/action thrillers and have read quite a lot of different authors and I'm delighted to say that Marc Cameron will now be added to my list of favourite authors! I can't believe I've only discovered him now and one can definitely see that he worked in law enforcement for over 25 years. This makes his storyline and characters more believable. When it comes to this genre it is important that a book must pack a punch from the beginning and this is

Thank you to NetGalley for letting me have an advanced copy of this for an honest review.

I have always loved this series. Something about Jericho and his relationship with Jacques has always just made me feel all warm and fuzzy. Here you have these amazingly badass men who are the best of friends, yet they are constantly giving each other a hard time. It's hilarious and very genuine.

Now, I've read every book in this series; novellas as well - I've never been disappointed. That is why this

“Active Measures” is the 8th installment of the Jericho Quinn series by author Marc Cameron, and this series has become one of my favorites in this genre. The newest adventure revolves around a long-hidden nuclear weapon in Cuba, recently discovered by a rouge general in the Cuban army. Jericho Quinn, and all his friends from the series, become involved to try and thwart an imminent attack against the States. Fans of this series will not be disappointed, as the action is non-stop, intense, and ...more

The 8th book in the Jericho Quinn series and just as great as the others. Non stop action and I like how this book takes him to Cuba. Cuba has always interested me since it is so close but we really know little about it. Jericho gets a call from an old friend who then turns up dead. Jericho keeps following the trail of this strange killing all the way to Cuba. Faced with almost insurmountable odds, Jericho winds up facing almost a mirror image of himself. Pick up this book and you won't be ...more

Marc Cameron’s Active Measures presents an in-depth and exciting look at Cuba, its continual Anti-American efforts, and the sordid condition of its citizens. Cameron shows how over the past 60 years of tyranny and infrastructure decline, Cubans have continued to yearn for freedom. Because Jericho Quinn and his cohorts are drawn into a Cuban plot to attack the Miami area, they travel to the island nation where we see the current conditions and people’s plight. You will enjoy this suspenseful ...more

Absolutely loved the latest Jericho Quinn installment from Marc Cameron!! From beginning to end, Cameron masterfully crafts a thrilling story that keeps you invested and hanging on the edge of your seat. His character and plot development was fantastic, and really made you appreciate the plight of some of the main characters. If you’ve followed the Quinn series, you’ll love this one- do yourself a favor and quit waiting, pick this book up now. Well done Mr. Cameron.

Jericho Quinn is back with lots of friends. He is contacted by a buddy who soon after the call is found murdered. The trail leads to Cuba, a Russian missile, and lots of close calls. Excellent journey through modern Cuba is included during the story’s development. I received an advanced digital copy of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

One of Marc Cemron's best Jericho Quinn novels yet! Great storyline and great job by Mr. Cameron in keep the reader (me!) on the edge of my seat throughout the story, with almost no let downs (that's hard to do!). I really enjoyed this and I really enjoy Mr. Cameron's approaches on the Jack Ryan books. He's really to be applauded, in my opinion.

Thank you to Netgalley for the advance review copy of this book. Unfortunately not the greatest in the Jericho Quinn series. Starts off interestingly enough with a nuclear weapon on the loose in Cuba however the plot doesn't lead anywhere for most of the book and then the whole book is wrapped up nice and easily within a few chapters.

I just could not get interested in this book. It seemed like something I would like, but, just didn't do it for me. I tried, Sorry. I dislike giving reviews like this.
So many have given great reviews, but, just not for me.

Great read, riveting action. Jericho Quinn and friends, including a Santeria VooDoo ally against bad guys, a hurricane, and an in-depth look at Cuba present day.
Another great thrill ride by Marc Cameron. Well done!
