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.

    Story
    "Enjoyable twist on historic figures."

    A reasonably run of the mill action packed story made more interesting by the inclusion of unexpected story for figures.

    The narration was good with decent differentiation between characters and good convenience of emotion.

    A good second in the series which I will likely come back to in the future.

    Story
    "too preachy - not as good as the first"

    Well, Maberry's managed to make the Nazi's villains even though WW II was over 70 years ag0 - there's got to be some credit in that. This is not nearly as good as the first in the series (Patient Zero), but I still like the larger-than-life Ledger and his team of bad-asses. However, this one gets too preachy about the evil work of the evil genius. I think it's kind of unnecessary to have everyone repeatedly say how horrible eugenics and white-supremacy ideas are. We get it, already. I think without the wonderful narration, I wouldn't have enjoyed this nearly as much and would have skimmed a lot of it.

    In sales and on the road a lot. Love SciFi, Fantasy, Historical Fiction, and the occasional Non-Fiction. Funny. Opinionated.

    "good book, I'm definitely a Ledger fan now!"

    and Ray Porters performance continues to exceed expectations as well! some plot points are well worn, but there's enough originality to make the series entertaining.

    "Another good Joe Ledger and DMS thriller...."

    Another good Joe Ledger and DMS thriller with more than enough action, military terms & tactics, twists, turns, and really EVIL villains to keep you on the edge of your seat. Highly Recommended!
