Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Joe Ledger and company save the world again!"

    Jonathan Mayberry does not disappoint and Ray Porter does the narration with style Who ra! Joe and company take on terrorist that are part of an agreement made before modern times.
    This story has the historical elements of Da Vinci Code and dark forces of Twilight series. Buckle up for a wild ride.

    "Good book and decent story line"

    Love the story series! Could do with a bit less repeat. The vampires are a good mix in this series.

    "Overall great"

    The rehashing of previous characters being reintroduced seemed to drag on as did the scenes from ancient history. Made it a bit slow overall for me.

    I love how Joe Ledger, as screwed up as he is, still has heart. Go Joe!!!

    Keep up the work!

    "Another exceptional book"

    I happened upon this author by chance; while reading a review for a different author the reviewer made a statement "if you want a great zombie book then put down this one and go straight to Jonathan Mayberry." So I did and I have to say that reading a series with hardcore mixed military kick ass soldiers battle zombies and dragons and bioterrorism and vampires and cockroach soldiers while navigating espionage is pretty good but mix in that Joe Ledger humor and hot damn these books are addictive.

    "Another Great Joe Ledger Novel"

    Zombies, and Terrorist and Vampires oh my! The fourth installment in the Joe Ledger series picks up follows the same template as the three before it but with a new twisted set of challenges. If you’re a fan of intense action, unique characters and a giant smart ass as your main character, then dive right into “Assassins Code” and enjoy the ride.

    Ray Porter does a great job as usual.

    Story
    "Too many "Interludes"..."

    Ray Porter IS Joe Ledger to me, so any Ledger book her reads, I am buying! That said, this book is a big disaapointment. JUST when the action gets moving and you think you are the cusp of figuring things out, BAM, a stupid 'interlude' pops up. These interludes add NOTHING to the story that could not have been done in a single prologue. They are too distracting from the arc of the story, and by the time we are brought back to Joe and Echo team, too much time has elapsed and the momentum is lost. I don't know why Jonathan Maberry loves these 'interludes' but they really need to go. A story like this, and others of its ilk, relies on momentum and suspense--not idiotic forays into times way past, and which have very little to do with the story at hand. Next time, Jonathan, do this sort of thing in a prologue and let the story move! If I was reading this on my kindle, I would have returned it for credit after the first 6 interludes. Had this been a paperback I was reading, I'd have shredded it. Dreck.

    "Great book and superb performance by Ray Porter"
    Any additional comments?

    The story was good but Ray Porter made it great. He has several characters and his inflexions are on the mark.

    Story
    "J. Mayberry and R. Porter do it again!"

    Another rollicking storyline and more masterful, entertaining and fantastic narration by Ray Porter. Love it when the voice *is* the character. No one else could do Joe Ledger like this! Really enjoying this series. Action, good story building, good characters and some gore---but nothing you have to take too seriously.
