    "Looking forward to the next book."

    This book is a little big different from the other books in the series, but in a good way. I liked investigative feel rather then the fight fight fight approach in the other books.

    1) I love Ghost and really feel for him in every encounter

    2) I pretty much skipped over the 2000 year old flashbacks. They didn't add much to the story in reality.

    3) For some reason the audio quality was a little lower in this book compared to the others. Not sure why.

    4) Liked getting more details on Mr. Church. The unfolding of his character has been very well done.

    "My least favorite Joe Ledger Novel, but still Joe"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It is a book that can keep your attention but was lacking in what i have come to expect from the Joe Ledger Novels. Most books have some sci-fi basis that seems unlikely but at least plausible (ex. Prions accelerated by parasites, weaponized pathogens created by a secret society). I found the antagonist completely unbelievable and the other characters acceptance of them far to swift. I would of liked more explication for their existence instead of bloodlines (Something more like I am Legend with aerobic bacteria). If you enjoyed the other Joe Ledger novels I would suggest you still buy and listen (it is at least entertaining, and features the same Joe Ledger we have all come to love), if you are new to this series I would start with Patient Zero.


    What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?

    He does a great job of separating each character with their own unique voice.

    "Top notch writing and voice performance!!"
    If you could sum up Assassin's Code in three words, what would they be?

    The best installment in the series.....Ray Porter as always nailed the performance.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Is this a real question? Joel Ledger


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The entire book will have you captivated and not wanting to return to the daily grind...


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

    The entire story and back story is well woven.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm ready for the next one...

    "WOW"
    What made the experience of listening to Assassin's Code the most enjoyable?

    Another book in the series.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I am only half through, but far enough to know it is another FANTASTIC book in the series, I only hope this is not the end...


    Have you listened to any of Ray Porter???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The bestest ever


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

    Not yet, but it is still a wonderful listen.


    Any additional comments?

    Yeah, Joe Ledger is the Bomb.

    "pretty silly"

    Vampires in the hierarchy of the Catholic church is a laughable concept whose only saving grace is that the autheor for the most par. doesn't try to treat it seriously. Those chapters where he does could easily be deleted or at least skipped without affecting the tlowbrow amusement of the rest of the book

    "Joe Ledger Rocks!!"

    How can you not love Joe Ledger? Especially the way Ray Porter brings him to life. Conflicted, screwed up, tormented and one kick-ass mofo, Joe is my favorite action hero.

    Great book, exceptional read and I will be listening to every Joe Ledger book I can get my ears on.

    "Could not stop listening."
    If you could sum up Assassin's Code in three words, what would they be?

    Well narrated book


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Assassin's Code?

    When Church shoots Hugo Vox. Surprised at that.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The one where Ghost launches itself back to defend its master.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was fast pacing and funny at unexpected times


    Any additional comments?

    Really like a movie. The narration was so good. And the story was brilliant.
    Thanks audible for not screwing up this Joe Ledger story.

    "Awash with predictable role-playing"

    Story was like a b grade action flick. It was awash with predictable role-playing, with blood an guts everywhere. It reminded me of a band of pumped up boys running around trying to one-up each other. The plot got more and more unbelievable. I just hung on to see if the garlic dust could stop the religious hot-heads from blowing up the world with a nuclear bomb!! Yes that far-fetched!!

    "Zzzzz...."

    An itty bitty story in an ocean of detail, which is sad if you're a fan of the other books as I am. The author had an outstanding story idea with the vampires but chose to put them in the background and drone on and on with details and space filling nothing,
