    For years the Department of Military Sciences has fought to stop terrorists from using radical bioweapons - designer plagues, weaponized pathogens, genetically modified viruses, and even the zombie plague that first brought Ledger into the DMS. These terrible weapons have been locked away in the world’s most secure facility. Until now. Joe Ledger and Echo Team are scrambled when a highly elite team of killers breaks the unbreakable security and steals the world’s most dangerous weapons.

    If you could sum up Code Zero in three words, what would they be?

    Anarchy vs Order


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Code Zero?

    Anytime that Joe Ledger and Ghost get into the mix, there's a narrative to how Mr Maberry describes the action and how Mr Porter provides the inner voice of the character is remarkable.


    Which character – as performed by Ray Porter – was your favorite?

    Mr Porter makes Joe Ledger's world come alive. I have dozens of audiobooks and I cant think of a better pairing than Mr Maberry's work and Mr Porter's narration.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I am always impressed by the level of internal psychology (and external display of same -- ex: Mr Church's character) that Mr Maberry imbues into the Joe Ledger character. As a fan, I've heard how Joe describes the conflict that goes on in his head as he encounters genetically-modified super-solders, vampires, zombies, and all around super-villians and I am always impressed with how he layers this conflict and presents it in a way that makes these characters very different from how others approach this genre. It's as if I have a viewport into the mind of James Bond - if he were blue collar and American.


    Any additional comments?

    As a final comment, I offer this to Mr Maberry -- I've had the pleasure meeting you twice and hearing about how you create and explore the nuances of your characters. I know that the other (monster) genre is becoming very popular and I'm very happy for you, but please, please please dont stop writing about the the trials and tribulations of Mr Joe Ledger and his team at the DMS!
