Summary

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 the families below. But one hostage isn't playing along. He's special agent Jericho Quinn. He's on vacation with his daughter. And he's about to turn this terrorist pool party into one righteous blood bath....

Quinn and Tibadaue are awesome, BUT!

The Jericho Quinn series has been awesome, but this was the weakest story line of the whole series. The narrator on this book did not capture the true essence of the characters. The original narrator from three earlier book was the best. Marc Cameron is a talented author, but he has drifted from his true ability in this outing. Look forward to the next book.

Author Marc Cameron at his best!

This 3 hour novella could have easily been expanded into a novel. The scene is a 200 acre water park with the highest water slide in the world called Dead Drop. Jericho Quinn is there with his girlfriend (also an agent) and his daughter Mattie while the giant ex-Marine Jock Thibodaux is their with his wife and their seven sons. An apparent terrorist strike begins with an explosion and then several men with guns shooting at and killing water park patrons. Dead Drop is a high action and suspense thriller. Luke Daniels' narration is spot on.

Glad This Isn't What I Do On Vacation

Short but good. This novella gives more depth to the characters. Getting to know them in their off time brings clarity.

Short but to the point action and suspense.

I loved this book! Good action and great voice performance. Most books start off slow spending chapter after chapter building characters. By the time character introduction is done the book is half way finished. Not this book, most characters are explained in a paragraph or two. With character introduction done this book gets right to it and doesn't let up until Mr. Brooks is knocked out the end. Oh another great performance by Luke Daniels.

Short and sweet!

Ironically "short and sweet" cannot be a full review. So I can't leave a short and sweet review on a short and sweet book.

Great novella

Continuing on from ‘Field of Fire’ ... here’s a nice little, hero-packed action thriller with a satisfying story conclusion (something Cameron doesn’t always do).

How do these folks attract so much high stakes danger wherever they go?

Disappointed!

Story and performance were fine but I wanted a BOOK-not a couple of chapters. I’m really sorry I wasted my money.
