Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Great book but the previous ones are better."

    The bad guys in this segment were rather weak. They weren't the lease bit intimidating. But as usual Ledger kicked some serious butt. I mean how can you not like him, Mr church, and echo team. Definitely worth the time and credit but it's no "patient zero" or "dragon factory" by any means.

    Story
    "Great ledger novel *basic plot spoilers"

    This was another great ledger novel. At first the aliens and men in black almost made me give up on the series. After vampires, zombies, and mutants I started to think that's enough. I bought it so I kept going.
    As usual Ray Porter is phenomenal. My brother got in my truck while it was playing and was amazed at how good the narration was. He couldn't believe that one guy was doing all of the voices. I actually get so lost in the stories I tend to forget that. He doesn't usually listen to audiobooks and I think this short exposure may have gotten him hooked.
    The story doesn't have as many action sequences as those in the past, but the ones they had were great. The story was pretty good, I am not really a huge UFO sci fi guy, but the way he backs up the story with all of these facts got me pretty interested in the subject and made me turn on the new X files when I got home.
    His story formula is very familiar to his past ledger novels. It's kind of like watching law and order, familiar but addicting.
    If you enjoy Ledger, but it, you won't be disappointed.

    Story
    "Love the paranormal mixed with the action"
    What did you like best about Extinction Machine? What did you like least?

    Joe's humor and sarcasm, action, mystery and the supporting characters make this story a good listen.
    I would have liked more dialogue with the characters from Patient Zero.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Extinction Machine?

    I liked how Church told Joe at the end that the "women" is part of them now, to be protected.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many.


    Could you see Extinction Machine being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Probably a movie Gerard Butler if he is not too old and is fit enough for the action parts, would be good with the sarcasm and humor.


    Any additional comments?

    If a movie is made, it should be Patient Zero. That is the best Joe Ledger so far.
