Publisher's Summary

Saturday, 0911 hours — A blast rocks a London hospital and thousands are dead or injured.

1009 hours — Joe Ledger arrives on scene to investigate. The horror is unlike anything he has ever seen.

Compelled by grief and rage, Ledger rejoins the Department of Military Sciences, and within hours he's attacked by a hit team of assassins and sent on a suicide mission into a viral hot zone during an Ebola outbreak.

Soon Ledger and the DMS begin tearing down the veils of deception to uncover a vast and powerful secret society using weaponized versions of the Ten Plagues of Egypt to destabilize world economies and profit from the resulting chaos. Millions will die unless Ledger meets this powerful new enemy on its own terms as he fights terror with terror. 

Take another thrill ride with Joe Ledger.

    Story
    "Starts with a bang, ends with a whimper"

    The author tries hard to capture the thrill of the earlier books.
    He even tries some mysticism in the form of Godess and prohecies and also the prisoner.
    Sadly, the build up ends with a whimper in the form of a firefight on the boat.
    The only saving grace is Toyce, whose character is good.
    Still the performance overcomes the many shortcomings of the story.

    "Better than the 2nd book"

    The 2nd book was ok, but not anywhere as good as the first. This one comes closer to reaching the level of the 1st book.

    All of them

    "Not as good as the first one"

    While there are a lot of intriguing and memorable ideas here, the story ultimately unravels and the ending is unsatisfying.

    Any additional comments?

    I like this series of novels starring smart ass super cop Joe Ledger. I'm not into detective or cop books so I can't compare it to any others so I'll just say it's like a James Bond, Jackie Chan mix action movie for your ears.
