Wow. 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!

You do not have to have read any of the other books in the series – this one clearly stands alone, though there are references (I’m pretty sure) to events in other books, including a certain dastardly Speaker of the House. Given how things end in this book, I can barely wait until the next one comes out. While the plague/disease threat is handled, not everything else thrown at Jericho is.

This is not a romance. This is a spy/thriller novel and it grabs you from the first page. I found the hero Jericho a believable spy/special agent on the hunt for the woman who tries to hurt members of his family. I liked the blending in of the Asian culture with the Miyagi sensei (a woman!) and her backstory which is surprisingly important to the overall plot (not just of this book, but the next one as well I believe).

The secondary characters, including the aforementioned Miyagi (and she’s no “wax on, wax off” sort), are important to the story because without them Jericho couldn’t do what he needs to do.

The idea of developing a supervirus, infecting our returning military by virtue of simple haircuts or pedicures (this is all revealed within the first couple of chapters, so doesn’t count as a spoiler to my mind) is something that I wouldn’t be entirely surprised to see happen in the world as it stands. America has a lot of people that hates it and despite what we like to comfort ourselves with, we can’t guard against every threat, even if we threw unlimited amounts of money at it. It really wouldn’t be that hard to come up with a virus that could kill huge swathes of the population. And with the various terrorist and mob/mafia organizations around the world, I can believe that they would have people enough in the right places to keep such a plan secret.

So, in case anyone doubts my opinion, this is a FANTASTIC book! Read it. Read it now. 5 stars all the way, and I wish I could give it more (but I won’t ’cause I can’t give it more than 5 on any of the rating websites).

    Good Series ...

    The last of the series so far ... and I would say it's the best of the 4 to date. You become attached to the main characters and learning about their past enhances the story. Looking forward to book 5.
