For years the Department of Military Sciences has fought to stop terrorists from using radical bioweapons - designer plagues, weaponized pathogens, genetically modified viruses, and even the zombie plague that first brought Ledger into the DMS. These terrible weapons have been locked away in the world’s most secure facility. Until now. Joe Ledger and Echo Team are scrambled when a highly elite team of killers breaks the unbreakable security and steals the world’s most dangerous weapons. Within days there are outbreaks of mass slaughter and murderous insanity across the American heartland. Can Joe Ledger stop a brilliant and devious master criminal from turning the Land of the Free into a land of the dead? Code Zero, a Joe Ledger novel from Jonathan Maberry, is the exciting direct sequel to Patient Zero.
This book series started out great but recently, this book in particular, the author tries to be too poetic in his writing. Often times he will go on these long soap box rants about political or social issues. Also, he tries too hard to bring out the emotional side of the main character to the point that it feels forced and over the top. It's a series about a guy who fights zombies and genetically enginered super soldiers...not hemingway.
His best book yet!!
I never thought that listening to this series would make me yearn for Joe, Rudy and all the rest to be real. What outstanding characters!! I wanted to cheer after this book was finished. The narration has no equal. Fantastic job Mr. Mayberry!!
