Far from a great book, but not entirely horrible either. I liked the characters, but story very weak.

Overall, story started really strong but went out like a whisper. Seems like the author had a deadline and had to meet it quickly. ( )

As often happens with my "new series" reads they are because of a challenge that needs something to fulfill it. This one was not an exception to that rule. I had never read this author so really had no preconceived expectations. Turns out that our hero...Jericho Quinn... is an Air Force captain with very special skills. He has an ex-wife...a five-year-old daughter...and spends his life protecting others. He is described as dark skinned and speaks fluent Arabic. An interesting character but I believe I would very much like him more in a movie than in a book. I found that the book, while being an interesting enough was very descriptive and the good guys come off as super-heroes that can do not wrong. I'm not sure I will ever read book #2...unless I have another challenge.... ( )

Exciting, action plot with a bio-terrorism theme. I enjoyed the story -- complex, believable character behavior . It is a dark look into the mind of a Arab, Islamic terrorists and our hero, the all american boy. It looks like a lot of other novels I've read... just too much of the same. This one's not too preachy, though. And, i like their toys...motorcycles and guns. The bio terrorism theme is just too possible not to believe. Where's book #2? ( )

Not too bad - just too much of the same. I am getting a bit tired of authors with little originality and imagination spinning the same yarn over and over. The villains are always the same as are the heroes - both stereotypes and very trite. This book had a lot of action with very little character development. It is obviously the first in a series of sameness featuring the prime character. I will not be reading any more of Cameron's work. ( )

I enjoyed the story while reading it: nicely complex, believable character behavior (well, as long as we exclude the female character, she was odd), reasonable bad-guy.

The problem I had with it is that 2 days after reading it I couldn't really remember/distinguish the plot. I read a lot of books of this type - this book, while a sound and interesting read while reading it, did not have that 'thing' that makes the story and/or the character stick in your mind. Oddly enough, it was only the main character's name that allowed me to recall how this book was different than the other thriller-terrorism books I read.

This isn't really a bad thing though - I don't expect these types of novels to have some deeper meaning that sticks with me afterward.

The part I liked best was that even though the characters are 'super soldiers', they didn't come across as unbelievable or smarmy, and the novel as a whole doesn't waste time with lectures or morals re terrorism, or the military, and etc. There was a tad too much, err, we'll call it 'interest' in motorcycles - they are described the way most authors describe women. And the only female character here did not ring true on any level. She wasn`t written like the simpering bimbo most women in these types of novels are, but it felt like the author was trying to make her come across as 'strong' even though he wrote her based on stereotypes.

Anyway, she isn't significant to the story. Nor is the stereotype 'buddy' who gets called in to help (but doesn't really do anything other than talk about his wife). No matter though... I will definitely be reading the next in the series. For its genre, it is well above average. ( )
