    1. Echo team is doing a covert operation in Iran. Three American hikers have been captured and accused of spying by the Iranian military. Joe and Echo team go in to rescue them, hopefully, without sparking off a war. The mission goes well. The team is away and Joe is getting ready to follow his own exit plan when everything goes to hell. He plays tag with a couple of snipers, meets with the head of Iranian Intelligence, and gets attacked in his hotel room by a man with superhuman strength and fille [...]

    2. Ok, full disclosure. I have read the earlier books in this series and I liked them so I preordered this on my nook. When it came in I consumed it quickly. I loved the science combined with the weird religious stuff. Very fun, kinda funky plot revolving around vampires! Yep, no one but Maberry could or should try and make Vampires sound scientifically valid in my opinion. Very nice twist on the undead. I loved the final sentence! With the ass kicking the hero took he needed some hope for the futu [...]

    3. Without a doubt, the BEST book of the series yet, and the best book I've read this year till now. This Awesome action thriller had it all: Insane bloodpumping violant action sequences one after the other, nuclear threats of hidden nukes (not one or two, s-e-v-e-n!), secret shadow war between secret societies going on for 800 (!) years, mindnumbing conspiracies, heartbreaking histories and deaths, headscratching twisted puzzles and mysteries one on top the other, ancient mathematical codex & [...]

    4. It's refreshing to see talk about the Middle East that doesn't embrace hatred. I enjoyed the approach to religious tolerance, though I felt a little sorry for Captain Ledger when I learned that he believes in god, which is just silly for a man who has seen what he has seen. I am choosing to believe that it was one of his minor personality splinters who said that, though it was probably really the rule-accepting Civilized Man.Jonathan Maberry has an amazing ability to describe an action sequence [...]

    5. I love the Joe Ledger books! He has the best adventures, the best sense of humor and the best crew. Enough said. I'm on to the next one.

    6. I first caught Jonathan Maberry when I bought Patient Zero on a whim a couple of years back. Basic story was that lunatic terrorists were creating a zombie plague (of sorts), and a hastily-assembled tactical team attempted to take them out. In the course of the book, we were introduced to key characters Joe Ledger (our protagonist), Ghost (his dog), Rudy (his friend and therapist), Echo Team (the hastily-assembled tactical team), DMS (the covert agency responsible for dealing with situations lik [...]

    7. In my trade, confidence is built on a platform whose legs are made up of good intelligence, continuous training, proper equipment, and field support. I had a sick dog, a dead man’s gun, a stolen briefcase, a vampire hunter’s stake in my belt, and a cell phone…Joe’s dealt with zombies, the island of Dr. Moreau, and the Seven Plagues of Egypt. Surely nothing can surprise him now. At least that’s what he thinks.After rescuing American college students held hostage in Iran, Joe is contacte [...]

    8. You may also read my review here: mybookishways/2012/03/Joe Ledger is back in the 4th thriller from Jonathan Maberry! I’m a huge fan of this series, and have loved every one, so I was eager to dive back into Joe’s world. The day after Joe and Echo Team rescue a group of college students held hostage in Iran, Joe is sitting in a coffee shop with a laser sight trained on his groin. He gets a call and a mysterious female voice gives him very specific instructions to meet a man in the coffee sho [...]

    9. Is it even remotely possible that this book could get any better than it's predecessors? Well I can answer that question and it is yes! Although the other 3 were 5 stars and were most excellent, this one went a step further I think. I am not usually one for military, terrorism and the like, so when and author can make me like reading about those things, then he has a great talent! This series revolves around terrorism in one form or another. Each book is a different form and they just keep getti [...]

    10. Assassin’s Code: A Joe Leger Novel is a fast-paced thriller with a slightly paranormal edge. Joe Ledger is an engaging hero. He is tough, but not superhuman, with a wise-cracking sense of humor, a split personality and a scarred pysche. Along with the team Joe commands is his dog, Ghost. I worried that the dog would either be a throwaway character or would otherwise be distracting. Instead, Ghost was a solid character in his own right, and an effective foil for Joe in what might otherwise be i [...]

    11. Another brilliant book by Jonathan Maberry which follows the insanely hectic and dangerous life of Joe Ledger, each book has gotten better and better ramping up the stakes and thrills to an extremely high level each time out.These books don't fall into any one genre but for me straddle two, horror and thriller which jonathan pulls off with seemingly great ease, the lead character Joe is a man that has alot of personal baggage and inner personalities that fight to come to the fore, which they do [...]

    12. So Joe Ledger and Echo Team are up to their chins in it again. Poor Joe seems to be losing his mind-just a little. He is also separated from his team for the better part of the novel, which, if you know Joe, just means that his personal body count went up significantly. He has help from an outside source that he's not sure what to think of, as well as his dog, Ghost. And the threat this time is more deadly and immediate than any he has faced so far with the DMS. The bad guys are sufficiently cre [...]

    13. Best one yet. Solid 4 and half stars. How much more Joe Ledger can take before his sanity drops to zero? Once again Maberry shines on action scenes, especially martial arts stuff, you could almost feel the pain of each punch and kick, primal is a one word that's comes to mind. New conspiracy-plot is not as crazy as previous, but up there high at wtf-scale, and once again it fits nicely in the Ledgers world. An old enemies come back, a new allies are introduced, some warriors die, and lot's of ac [...]

    14. This series continues to impress me. With each new entry into the Joe Ledger saga, I become more and more enamored with the writing of Jonathan Maberry. I am convinced this man is a literary master of his genre. There is constant movement, constant tension, constant comradery and constant suspense. And, it all flows smoothly and effortlessly.Pure fun and high octane adrenaline.This is the number one series I recommend to all my GR friends.

    15. When I picked up Patient Zero all those years ago I knew I made a good choice. From then on I've been hooked. This is a spectacular book that has been tied together by all of its predcessors. I highly recommend this one, and the entire series to all thrill lovers.

    16. When I was a kid I was drawn to horror stories because essentially they were about men and women going into the dark to face monsters, being tested, and walking away victorious. The older I got the more I understood and appreciated the fact that some monsters are all too human and all too often battling these monsters would change people. They were battles worth fighting, but fighting and winning them comes with a cost. When I find a story that can combine that youthful feeling of excitement wit [...]

    17. Holy shit! What if Jason Statham starred in The Da Vinci Code and fought a vampire army to save the world from nuclear annihilation? If the previous novel was a bit low on the action, this is a MASSIVE counter by Maberry. Joe gets the shit beaten out of him and kicks more ass than any action hero on the big screen. Reading these novels you can't help but wonder if Maberry is going to burn the novelty and inspiration on this material, but somehow he keeps on delivering.

    18. I had some trouble with the premise in the last book that pretty much all bad stuff in the world is caused by one group (or two groups) of evil masterminds pulling strings. This book has a similar problem by trying to make me believe that all religious strife and hatred and violence is caused by secret masterminds behind the scenes intentionally stirring things up. This all strikes me as very naive. Like the author doesn't realize that some people and some ideologies are just inherently evil. Li [...]

    19. In ASSASSIN’S CODE, the fourth book in author Jonathan Maberry’s Joe Ledger series, Joe Ledger and the DMS go on a relentless chase to stop an ancient order of killers who are also vampires from plunging the entire world into Holy War…. Also… They are Vampires with nukes…. Cus what’s more scary than a vampire with nukes??? Probably a bear with a knife…Anyway,When Joe Ledger and Echo Team rescue a group of American college kids held hostage in Iran, which provides a convenient vehic [...]

    20. The Joe Ledger books are like the summer blockbuster with lots of action and doomsday plots and multiple hidden organizations competing against each other. They also have some depth to them in the characterization of Ledger who is a bit more than the action star. In fact the hero seems to be self-consciously aware of portrayal of the action star killing people and emitting one-liner.One problem when you have a series a books each trying to top each other with the next doomsday scenario that must [...]

    21. In this fourth installment of the Joe Ledger series, the world is threatened by an ancient conspiracy of violence and deception, with the DMS caught up in a race to find not one, but several nukes planted in various key oil fields. (Mild spoilers ahead!) But that is only the tip of the global iceberg. After Ledger is contacted by a high-ranking Iranian official while in-country during a rescue mission in Tehran, he's given vital intel on the nuke's location, along with help from a beautiful and [...]

    22. 2.5 stars.A bit of a misstep for the usually reliable Maberry. All the usual pieces of the Joe Ledger series are present in this fourth book: international intrigue, tough guy dialogue, vaguely supernatural bad guy, and a whole lot of punching. I don't know if it's because the series is starting to feel a little threadbare or because Maberry just hit a fallow patch, but not much here works. Even the premise – vampires have nukes! – feels strained. There's some good stuff (especially the disc [...]

    23. I suppose it's no surprise that the book closest in, well, everything, to the Pine Deep Trilogy is my favorite Joe Ledger novel. I think Maberry took some risks that paid off (and some that didn't but they were few) and overall wrote a book that engaged me quickly, stayed true to the overall series while moving it forward, and basically was just a lot of fun. I love Violin and the whole Arklight group and I really hope we see more of them. Since I don't think Joe and Violin will work out long te [...]

    24. Desi am sarit peste volumul 3 al seriei, fara intentie, nu am simtit vreo problema la lectura.Din cate am inteles din context, "bad guy"-ul din 3 apare si acum urzind niscaiva comploturi incrincenate.Daca pina acum Maberry s-a folosit de zombie, clone si ceva mutanti, de data asta apar in prim plan vampirii.Este o serie cu tot felul de comploturi posibile daca ar fi sa scoatem din discutie elementul supranatural, desi influenta geneticii asupra evolutiei "vampirilor" nu as spune ca e chiar asa d [...]

    25. Not going to lie, to read this book I read the first 1/3, skipped the middle 1/3, and read the last 1/3. I felt like I got the same amount out of the book as if I would have read the whole thing. The Joe Ledger series has become rather formulaic and unexciting. Most of the book goes like this:Macho talk, Macho talk, characters say Oorah, Patriotic talk, Sexist talk, dumb self aware joke, main character cleverly grins after said dumb self aware joke. crt-alt save and you have yourself a book.

    26. The 4th in the Joe Ledger/DMS series by Jonathan Maberry. I rather enjoyed this outing since it touched on several of my niche interests. Any book that has me pulling down reference books and doing web searches is a real plus in my book. Not that I couldn't follow the story with out them, rather I wanted to know more details on the very real information that Maberry used as the backbone of some the story. This is NOT your typical men's adventure fiction, that would be selling it far short.

    27. After rescuing a group of American college kids in Iran, Joe Ledger and his team are asked to locate six nuclear bombs. It seems that a group of vampires have them and are set on destroying our world. I enjoyed reading the first Joe Edger novel Patient Zero, and although missed the next two in the series, this was as thrilling and exciting as the first. Joe is one cool protagonist and Maberry knows how to keep the evil coming and Joe busy trying to save mankind!
