Joe Ledger, ex-cop and now special forces killer, must lead his elite team against a criminal mastermind who threatens to unleash a super plague that could wipe out humanity.
After dealing with zombies and genetically-modified monsters, Joe Ledger was hoping for a break. But in the world in which he lives, evil is only just around the corner. His job is to protect the world from maniacs, maniacs who often have resources and support that his team doesn't. The enemy also has a brutal willingness to kill - and that is one thing Joe doesn't have a problem with ...
Frenetic pacing, thrill-a-minute adventure, breath-taking and realistic (author is a seventh Dan Karate black belt) violence. Perfect for the male readership.
In Maberry's audacious third novel featuring Department of Military Science agent Joe Ledger (after The Dragon Factory), Joe must stop a cult bent on overthrowing the world order. Though Ledger is unofficially retired, a terrorist attack that levels the Royal London Hospital killing thousands compels him to return to action. The London tragedy proves to be just the opening move in a meticulously planned plot. When a viral research facility in Scotland is compromised, the Bombay Stock Exchange is bombed, and Ledger himself is almost killed by assassins, he and his DMS cohorts quickly realize that they're up against a terrorist group with virtually unlimited resources about which they know little except its name, the Seven Kings. Powered by a cast of over-the-top characters, breakneck pacing, nonstop action, and a subtle sense of humor, this is an utterly readable blend of adventure fiction, suspense thriller, and horror.

Badly missing Zombies
This book was nowhere near as good as 'Patient Zero' or 'Rot and Ruin'
It felt slightly tired & formulaic.
I am disappointed.
