Battle Lines is the fifth book in Dr. Bradley's Survivalist series. Series Order: Frontier Justice, Anarchy Rising, Judgment Day, Madness Rules, Battle Lines, and Finest Hour.
Description: Convinced that a militia leader holds the key to finally exacting justice, Deputy Marshal Mason Raines enters the destroyed city of Lexington. Traveling with the unlikeliest of allies, he must confront mutated survivors of the Superpox-99 virus as well as an elite group of military assassins sent to clean up evidence of President Pike's crimes.
Meanwhile, Tanner and Samantha discover that their Naval Observatory hideaway isn't as safe as they would have liked to believe. Forced to once again travel the roads, they face all new threats, including bloodthirsty animals, and survivalists with a twisted system of justice. When they come face-to-face with patient zero, not only does the origin of the virus become clear but also a glimmer of hope for mankind's last survivors.
With sanity continuing to slip away, President Pike orders the abduction and murder of General Carr. As plans falter and allies depart, he is forced to accept that a larger showdown is coming. Battle lines are being drawn, and in the end, only the most ruthless will be left standing.

I simply can't get enough of this fiction series. What a story. The end of this installment is the only disappointing moment.
I just love this series. I really do. Good wins (or indications are that it will...with or without the death of the protagonists, we shall see). Great characters. Realistic situations. I have listened to dozens (sad, isn't it??) of this genre and I can't think of any that come close...maybe Day-by-Day, but not really. Just the best.
Action packed keeps you glued to the story.
I like all the characters each has a vital role in the story,But tanner is my favorite.
He is just a great narrator good distinction between characters and great thru the action parts of the story this book would NOT be the same with out him.
I have read around a 100 post apocalyptic novels and this series definitely makes my top ten if not top five. Can't wait to find out how it ends.
I have been reading, and listening to Arthur T. Bradley's survivalist seris since I first stumbled upon them in the book store. Unlike some of the other books in this genre Mr. Bradley's books have a defined sense of purpose and well developed characters. The story doesn't just throw lists of gear or tactics at the reader, rather the skills and knowledge to be gathered are cleverly hidden amongst the story's plot. I'd recommend this audio book or any of Bradley's work to anyone interested in the preparation mindset.
I'm glad to see Tanner and his son, Mason together... Good idea how their separate stories merged and they are finally together. Although, Tanner has been taking a beating throughout, he's tough, yet civilized. Mason still shows he's will to track down his man and discovers the truth of the entire situation...! Can't wait to start listening to Book 6.
