Extinction Machine: The Joe Ledger Novels, Book 5 Audible – Unabridged

Extinction Machine is fast moving, shoot 'em up, blow 'em up, who dun it. One new character has a secret you can see coming a mile away, but she adds nicely to Joe's story. Mr. Mayberry comes up with some very interesting bad guys and he certainly doesn't disappoint here. The less dark tone of this novel (compared to some Joe books) was definitely a positive thing for me as well. I kept checking how far along I was on my Kindle because I didn't want it to end.
If you like sci-fi, high action thrillers, there is no better series than this one. Check it out...
At its core this is "good guy vs bad guy" stuff. The good guys will win, but they'll go through hell in the process. By the time they come through, Joe, "Bunny" and "Top" will feel like friends. And Mr. Church, for all his mystery and ambiguity, is someone you'd definitely like on your side.
I call on "Echo Team" whenever I'm in danger of overdosing on too much serious, heavy, overwrought, dark and/or head-scratching, "important" "literature" (see: "Olive Kitteridge", anything by Alice Munro, Joyce Carol Oates, Margaret Atwood or Cormac McCarthy (esp Cormac McCarthy) "The Goldfinch", most "memoirs" (see "Wild") and a lot of contemporary fiction). Joe and the guys are the perfect antidote to all of that.
As long as Maberry keeps writing them, I'll keep buying them.
First let me say how much I ADORE Jonathan Maberry's writing. He keeps me engaged and I cant stop until it's done. If you like Military, INTENSE Fighting, Secret Gov't Agencies, Creatures, Zombies, Mad Scientists, Aliens etc then the Joe Ledger series (all of them) are for you. I recommend reading from book 1 to this but you dont HAVE too, each story is its own with some recollection of the last, I find it def helps to understand Joe's character better and the others if you follow from book 1.
This book is along similar lines to others in the past with mad scientists but has more alien vibes (not gonna give anything away) That said my personal favorite of the series is Patient Zero, but thats bc I'm a zombie FREAK (I recommend his "Rot and Ruin" series and "Dead of Night" if you are into Zombies)
Keep the books coming Mr. Maberry, I look forward to them.
This one starts with the Captain Joe Ledger and Echo squad of the DMS in Wolf Trap, Virginia. They are at Shelton Aeoronatics. They are doing legwork, tracking down cyberterrorists since there have been many cyber attacks directed at the defense industry in the last few months.
They find those working there in pieces. Pieces on the floor, the walls and the ceiling.
They also find two men who say they are Federal Agents. Two men who turn out to be way more than they appear to be. Two men who have a gun no one has ever seen before and silk thin Kevlar and muscle enhancers to boot.
So begins another fine read.
This one has Joe, Joe's Military War Dog Ghost, Church, Rudy, a POTUS kidnapped from the WH, the Majestic 3, a man named Tull, another man named Aldo, a man named Bones, another man named Shelton, murder, attempted murder, a plot by the Majestic 3, a woman named Junie Flynn, a Joe Leger who has been framed, a Black Book, VP Collins who becomes the acting POTUS, a Collins who does his best to dismantle the DMS, the destruction of the Warehouse, dead friends, the Chinese, a flying T craft, the owners of the intel for that craft, threats, a knock down drag out fight, enemies, friends and Joe Ledger and the DMS in a fight for their lives.
As usual, pacing is relentless and breathtaking at times. Joe continues to defend his country and the DMS with his myriad physical and mental skills but this time he is up against multiple foes who have access to incredible weaponry heretofore unknown to modern man. Joe continues doing what he does best, out-thinking his opponents and using his uber warrior skills to terminate with prejudice, often and creatively. Joe encounters a new love interest in someone who may hold the key to the mystery but must protect her and himself from "closers", men-in-black who are highly trained assassins of the secret cabal.
Ledger is one of the most deadly assassins known yet he still is conflicted by what he has chosen to do in life, often philosophizing about the worth of violence and the seemingly endless opponents who rise up as threats to his country and his friends.Read more ›
