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.

“A fast-paced, brilliantly written novel.” (Brad Thor)
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 story. Suspenseful. With lots of humor. Just curious, do you have to get permission to use all the celebrity names? Highly recommended.
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.
Can't get enough of Joe Ledger's character! And another crazy set of villains you can't wait to get owned by Echo team. Time for book 4...the adventure continues...
I think I'm addicted to Johnathan Mayberry and Joe Ledger. It seems like just when you think there can't be anything more, suddenly there is! Ray Porter narrates these books and I love the way he reads. If you like this kind of book, you'll love the series.
and this outing doesn't disappoint. it has a good plot, good action, and bad (in a good way) adversaries. I normally listen to one book in a series then change it up and switch series for a book or two. but After the Dragon factory and King of Plagues i'm on to the next of this series, it's that good. (only other series I have done that with was the Grim Noire triology)
Ray Porter is da bomb! His range of "voices" is very broad. There is a scene on a plane where he really sounds like a woman trying to sound like a man. I was genuinely impressed. And he in my ears nails the accents of different languages. Top notch!
