Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In Stoker-winner Maberry’s wild second Joe Ledger novel, Joe and his comrades from the Department of Military Sciences take on enough villains and their world-threatening plots to fill half a dozen ordinary thrillers.” Publishers Weekly
“Expect this straight-ahead thriller to hook action-crazed readers and inspire them to both seek out the first Ledger book and eagerly anticipate the next installment.” Booklist
“Ray Porter finds unique voices for all the crazy characters involved in this action-packed thriller…Porter’s effective pacing embroils the listener…Porter’s voice for Mr. Church is striking, and his perfect tonal qualities for Joe give a sense of humor to a basically damaged person. Listeners will find themselves entranced by Porter’s terrific narration.” AudioFile
“Everything a good techno thriller should be—clever, imaginative, and above all thrilling.” British Fantasy Society
