From Publishers Weekly

Jan 31, 2011 – In Maberry's audacious third novel featuring Department of Military Science agent Joe Ledger (after The Dragon Factory), Joe must stop a cult bent on overthrowing the world order. Though Ledger is unofficially retired, a terrorist attack that levels the Royal London Hospital killing thousands compels him to return to action. The London tragedy proves to be just the opening move in a meticulously planned plot. When a viral research facility in Scotland is compromised, the Bombay Stock Exchange is bombed, and Ledger himself is almost killed by assassins, he and his DMS cohorts quickly realize that they're up against a terrorist group with virtually unlimited resources about which they know little except its name, the Seven Kings. Powered by a cast of over-the-top characters, breakneck pacing, nonstop action, and a subtle sense of humor, this is an utterly readable blend of adventure fiction, suspense thriller, and horror.

Customer Reviews

Great book, but plot twist accidentally given away!

Half way through the book the true name of one of the main villains is randomly thrown in, seemingly a typo...sucked the surprise out of the story, but still a great read nonetheless.

Wow!

Fantastic story, couldn't put it down-I hope with the ending the way it was that it will leave room for a next one in a whole series! Loved the characters and the dry humor in all the right spots-thoroughly enjoyed this book & can't imagine anyone that would disagree! Ghost, u r awesome!! Leslie :-)
