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.

    "love it"

    Jonathon Mayberry does it again! the Joe Ledger series does not disappoint. Joe is a hard core warrior and a world class smart ass! Intelligently written with a coat of dirt on top.

    "Can't stop listening!!!"

    Ray Porter is a narration master, his "personalities" in ALL of Johnathan Mayberry's books regarding the character Joe Ledger are masterfully done, you don't need to be told which character is talking, when Ray Porter reads your are IN THE STORY. I listen to the Joe ledger series over and over. Also Ghost road blues and Rot and Ruin are must haves!!!

    "The King of Plaques.....rocks"

    I'm enjoying each book more than the previous, this is a great series that's packed with action and great characters. If you're looking for a cool, action packed story...you'll find it here. I've read too many postings of "critical" nature and quite honestly...almost made me pass on these books - well, I'm glad I ignored those posts and decided for myself. Hopefully, my review will have a positive reaction to anyone pondering getting into the Ledger series...give it a shot, I'm sure you'll be glad you did!

    "Great book"

    Great story. Suspenseful. With lots of humor. Just curious, do you have to get permission to use all the celebrity names? Highly recommended.

    "Great story, relentless!"

    Another great one. My 5th book from this author. As good as the story is, Ray Porter's performance brings it all together with his characterizations and flourish. I'd listen to Ray read the phone book and be fascinated by it.
