When Joe Ledger and Echo Team rescue a group of American college kids held hostage in Iran, the Iranian government then asks them to help find six nuclear bombs planted in the Mideast oil fields. These stolen WMDs will lead Joe and Echo Team into hidden vaults of forbidden knowledge, mass-murder, betrayal, and a brotherhood of genetically-engineered killers with a thirst for blood.
Accompanied by the beautiful assassin called Violin, Joe follows a series of clues to find the Book of Shadows, which contains a horrifying truth that threatens to shatter his entire worldview. They say the truth will set you free… Not this time. The secrets of the Assassin’s Code will set the world ablaze.

"Maberry delivers plenty of action." (Publishers Weekly)
I drive a lot of large landscaping equipment at work and have quite the abundance of listening time on my hands. Drowning out diesel engines
Where do I even start? First, I love that the hole book takes place in basically one day. Second, Joe Ledger fights vampires and hooks up with a bad ass female assassin. Third, Joe and Ghost take on very believable versions of VAMPIRES! Fourth, It takes place inside of Iran and I was super interested in the whole cultural shift of the book happening inside the middle east. Possibly the most nerve wrecking excitement John Maberry packed into a novel so far.
YES! YES! YES!
Tough to put down. Storytelling keeps getting better, and I want to know what happens next. Compelling and fun, definitely not the typical gun porn so common of late, this is something different and worth checking out.
Love to take my walks listening to audible books
It had a better story line than Book 3
On a scale of 1-5 I would say 3
Joe's interaction with his dog was very moving.
