Audie Award Finalist, Science Fiction, 2014
In Extinction Machine, the fifth Joe Ledger book by Jonathan Maberry, the DMS must go up against someone - or something - in search of new technology that could bring about world war.
The president of the United States vanishes from the White House. A top-secret prototype stealth fighter is destroyed during a test flight. Witnesses on the ground say that it was shot down by a craft that immediately vanished at impossible speeds. All over the world, reports of UFOs are increasing at an alarming rate. And in a remote fossil dig in China dinosaur hunters have found something that is definitely not of this earth. There are rumors of alien-human hybrids living among us.
Joe Ledger and the Department of Military Sciences rush headlong into the heat of the world’s strangest and deadliest arms race, because the global race to recover and retro-engineer alien technologies has just hit a snag. Someone - or something - wants that technology back.

As always Jonathan stuns and amazes the readers.
Shock and Awe in true Jonathan style.
The only author I listen to as part of a series is Larry Correia.
All audiobooks? Gah! That's not fair. Okay. Right up there in the top 1% for two reasons - Jonathan Maberry and Ray Porter.
Again, REALLY? Okay. Don't make me choose between Church, Joe, Bunny and Top. Just don't make me. Who do I hate? VP Bill Collins. He can't go down soon enough.
Everything. Literally. Drama. Suspense. Humor. Everything.
Yeah, but it would be a teaser and that's not fair. Let's just said it was the last couple minutes of the book.
LOVE English Bulldogs, Nelson Demille, Patricia Cornwell and just reading in general!
Not really. This book just seemed to drag on and it really wasn't very interesting. I've actually fast forwarded through a lot of it.
No, I just think this one was very disappointing.
Ray Porter IS awesome. The voices he does are spot on from book to book. You always know the character without him having to point out who it is.
Joe Ledger books should continue.
Exciting, Thrilling, gripping
All the way though, i wasnt disappointed
I wont make a film out of it, Its to good as a book things get lost
The best download i have ever downloaded...
Certainly the themes are over the top, which is what actually makes it so fun to read. If it was real I don't think I would much enjoy it. Joe Ledger is a bad dude and when the world is in trouble you need a bad dude to save it :)
The characters approach to violence is much more consistent with how a military man is trained and how a real fighter is trained. It is fun to watch him be violent with things that are not real. Real would be too much.
His range in characters is great. There is seldom bleed over. You know what character is speaking and when. There was once that it seemed like Ledger was speaking when it was another character, it actually seemed like it fit, as though, "this is what ledger would have said in the mind of that character". I don't know if it was on purpose but it worked for me ;)
Yep and I almost did. Ended up splitting it over two days working in the shop.
The stories are great fun, Joe Ledger is crazy and funny. His jokes are terrible, but a character doing the things he is doing shouldn't be too funny :)
tied with the other 5 books in the series for number #1
can't think of a good comparison nobody blends so many plots as well as Maberry
It's like having a room full of different people acting out the story in my head, he is awesome, I will buy audiobooks just based on having Ray as the narrator.
You won't see this coming
Just bought book 6, hope there are more!
Liberal-based rider that doesn't really know what the real world is like
After this book no I don't think I will continue on with the liberal BS
Not so much liberal Democrat loving BS
Shouldn't use your political views to push your book
I have liked all the Joe Ledger books and this was no exception. This book wasn't as gory or as action packed as the others and I missed that, but it was still a good book.
Small Business Owner; I love to listen while I work.
Humor, Shock and Awe. "Joe Ledger Embodies the term S.N.A.F.U. and Laughs"
Patient Zero...... There are so many moments that will shock you to your core Jonathan Maberry Hits the mark with the Novel making it my second favorite next to Patient Zero.
MORE PLEASE!!! Jonathan Maberry needs to get his act together. I'm a MEGA fan of Joe Ledger and this story was not enough! It was good but more please. Suggestion to Maberry lock yourself in a room and write me a 20hr. book. I'm waiting!!!!!!! Ray Porter was awsome as always.
