UPDATE 8.27.2018: Cameron’s book has a new cover, which we’ve included below along with the plot description.
Several years back, #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor called fellow author Marc Cameron “one of the hottest new authors of the thriller genre.”
Since then, Cameron, a bestseller in his own right, has developed a loyal following with his hard-hitting Jericho Quinn novels (Field of Fire, etc.), and most recently his work penning Jack Ryan thrillers, a gig he took on after Mark Greaney (who co-authored several books with Tom Clancy before writing several more solo) stepped aside to focus on his own budding Gray Man franchise. At the time, a number of Clancy fans weren’t just sad to see Greaney go, they took to social media expressing their concerns that nobody could fill Mark’s shoes.
Fast forward to last year, and it turns out that replacing one Mark with another paid off in a huge way, with Marc Cameron’s Tom Clancy Power and Empire (his first Jack Ryan novel) debuting at #7 on The New York Times bestsellers list under the hardcover fiction category. Furthermore, Cameron was praised by fans and critics alike, with Publisher’s Weekly stating that of all the writers who have contributed to the Jack Ryan series since Clancy’s death, “Cameron’s formidable performance puts him at the head of the pack.”
Now, with multiple hit bestselling franchises bearing his name, Cameron is gearing up to kick off a new series in 2019, starring a U.S. Marshal named Arliss Cutter who is stationed in Alaska. (For those who don’t know, Cameron — who spent twenty-nine years in law enforcement — was a U.S. Marshal and was actually stationed in Alaska for the last fifteen years of his career.) Check out the plot details and cover art below!
Law enforcement veteran Marc Cameron brings an explosive authenticity to this powerful new U.S. Marshal series. Arliss Cutter is a hero for our times. And his hunt for justice cuts straight to the bone. . . .
U.S. Marshal Arliss Cutter is a born tracker. Raised in the swamplands of Florida, he honed his skills in the military, fought in the Middle East, and worked three field positions for Marshal Services. When it comes to tracking someone down—or taking someone out—Cutter’s the best. But his newest assignment is taking him out of his comfort zone to southeast Alaska. Cold, dark, uninhabited forests that are often shrouded in fog. And it’s the kind of case that makes his blood run cold . . . the shocking murder of a Tlingit Indian girl.
Three people have disappeared on Prince of Wales Island. Two are crew members of the reality TV show, Fishwives. Cutter’s job is to find the bodies, examine the crew’s footage for clues, and track down the men who killed them. Easier said than done. Especially when the whole town is hiding secrets, every trail is a dead end—and the hunter becomes the hunted. . .
Open Carry, the first book in Marc Cameron’s forthcoming Arliss Cutter series, is scheduled to hit bookstores on February 26, 2019, and is currently available for pre-order wherever books are sold. Fans anxious to get their hands on some of Cameron’s other work can pre-order Tom Clancy Oath of Office, in stores November 27th, 2018, here.
