Product description

Review

Is Kill Switch recommended? Yes, without question...Series fans will certainly have much to celebrate in this new Joe Ledger entry. Those who somehow missed or avoided the series are urged to seek out the previous titles and join the ranks of those who so admire this wonderfully unique, suspenseful and endlessly ingenious series. -- Bookgasm

A blend of sf, horror, technothriller, and crime novel, this is one of the best adrenaline reads out there. --Library Journal, starred review

Maberry evokes Lovecraftian elements and modern-day thriller tropes to craft a fast-paced tale that incorporates a wide array of conspiracy theories, fringe culture motifs, and Cold War weird science into a sort of kitchen-sink affair that shouldn't work nearly as well as it does. -- Publishers Weekly

Praise for Predator One:

An action-packed read that sets hearts pumping and fingers quickly turning those pages... enjoy this thrilling roller-coaster ride of a book. --The San Francisco Chronicle (4 1/2 stars)

A harrowing addition to the Joe Ledger series...fast-paced and gripping. --SFSignal.com (4 1/2 stars)

Praise for Jonathan Maberry:

"Top grade horror fiction." --Booklist, (Starred Review) on Code Zero

A fast-paced, brilliantly written novel. The hottest thriller of the New Year! In The King of Plagues, Jonathan Maberry reigns supreme. --Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Athena Project

"Wow! From the first page of Patient Zero you know you're in the hands of a master...This is high-concept with brains, action with soul and fast paced tension with psychological insight." --M.J. Rose - bestselling author of The Reincarnationist

"The Ledger novels are exciting sf thrillers that just happen to involve stuff that's a little out there...Readers familiar with the series will need no prodding to check this new one out." --Booklist, starred review on Extinction Machine

Capt. Joe Ledger of the Department of Military Sciences returns for his exuberant eighth adventure (after 2015's Predator One), in which he once again has to prevent a disaster of apocalyptic proportions.... With his enemies able to hijack brains and turn allies into traitors, Joe can't trust anyone, turning this into one of his most personal missions yet. Maberry evokes Lovecraftian elements and modern-day thriller tropes to craft a fast-paced tale that incorporates an a wide array of conspiracy theories, fringe culture motifs, and Cold War weird science into a sort of kitchen-sink affair that shouldn't work nearly as well as it does. The sheer intensity of the story takes a heavy toll on Ledger and his team, leaving it anyone's guess where Maberry will take readers next - Publisher's Weekly

Review

The eighth terrifying instalment in the series, when terrorists threaten to drop electronic pulse bombs on 100 US cities, effectively killing all electronic software Joe Ledger must intervene.
