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)

    "Too good to be made into a movie..."

    I hope Hollywood never gets the chance to ruin the Joe Ledger series. This reading kept me hooked. The story is great but the character development made these people real. Jonathan Maberry and Ray Porter are a dynamic duo ;-). It's hard to say more without spoilers, but a chapter in this book made me choke up and cry real tears!! And of course, some of the dialogue is laugh-out-loud funny.

    "Better than "24""

    There are very few times that I actually cry out in surprise at a book, but this was one. When the real villain's identity was revealed, I yelled " Holy crap! I can't be... but it is!" Haha. It was a great moment in a fantastic and fast-paced book.

    "The stakes get bigger"

    This was a fantastic journey for our hero Jon Ledger, and what can I say folks Ray Porter does it again.

    Great for fans of the series and a promise to those looking for an sci-fi action thriller.

    I drive a lot of large landscaping equipment at work and have quite the abundance of listening time on my hands. Drowning out diesel engines

    "Couldn't put this down"

    After reading Patient Zero, I had to pick up the next book in the Joe Ledger series. It is every bit as good as the original.

    "WOW! This book was SO good!"

    I have had this book sitting on my shelf since it came out. I couldn't find the "time" to read it and then forgot all about it. The I found it at Audible and gave it a chance. To think that I have had this great story sitting under my nose this whole time is messing with my head. It has it all. A great story, a twisting plot and a hell of a good narrator, Ray Porter really brings the story to life and on top of that he has a very good voice to listen to for hours on end. nearing the end I hurried in to the shop and spent a credit on the next book in the series.
