Publisher's Summary

Ex-Baltimore cop turned special-ops shooter Joe Ledger is back in action.

In The Dragon Factory, Ledger and his team from the Department of Military Sciences square off against two separate groups of corrupt scientists. The beautiful but twisted Jakoby Twins are creating transgenic monsters and genetically enhanced mercenaries for sale to the highest bidder. Their father, who takes evil to an entirely new level, is using cutting-edge science to complete the Nazi master-race program.

Joe must elude the NSA who are gunning for him, fight his way past rogue Spetsnaz teams, and stop these madmen before the Extinction Clock runs out. And when the bloodbath claims one of his own, Joe Ledger declares total war on those people who would burn down the world in order to reshape it in their own dark image.

Take another thrill ride with Joe Ledger.

What the Critics Say

“In Stoker-winner Maberry’s wild second Joe Ledger novel, Joe and his comrades from the Department of Military Science take on enough villains and their world-threatening plots to fill half a dozen ordinary thrillers.” (Publishers Weekly)

    "Great Fiction!"

    I really liked listening to this story. It was a fast paced wild story with excellent narration. Even though it is Fiction there seemed to be many historical facts inserted. I also liked the first book, Patient Zero, with the same talented narrator, Ray Porter, who makes both books an easy listen. I have also become a Jonathan Maberry and Ray Porter fan.

    "Wonderfully and Wildly Entertaining"

    Really bad bad guys, mad scientists, mosters, evil plots to take over the world, hidden underground lairs, a secret government agency, none-stop action, and the baddest good guy ever - Joe Ledger. This is a great book.
    To top it off Ray Porter's narration is world class, some of the best I've ever heard.
    I'm becoming a big fan of Jonathan Maberry and Ray Porter.

    "I Love Nazi Cloner Plots"

    But, why are the characters repeatedly surprised when they keep bumping into look a likes? That said I really like the banter, descriptive narrative and whacky metaphors. Characters are a little stereotypical but sometimes unpredictable!

    Story
    "Worth every penny"

    This would have been a five star trilogy for me, except I struggled not to fast forward through the preachy parts. For example, Rudy's diatribes, and some of the world humanitarian views. Other than that, the action was perfect, and the character development was adequate for the peripheral characters.
    Thrilling ride.

    "The Dragon Factory"

    Think Jack Reacher meets Jurassic Park--kind of. Nonstop action. I thoroughly enjoyed this thriller. Great literature? I don't think so. But, I didn't want to stop listening to this book. The reader is great and the story is escapist fun.
    Jonathan Maberry will be on my "to read/listen" list going forward.

    "Solid follow up"

    Recently started the Joe Ledger books. This second ones maintains the pace and energy of the first, with a bigger crisis. I'll be curious to see if he's able to maintain the story line with new books, given the life expectancy of one of his characters.
