“Brilliant, shocking, horrifying, it puts the terror back in terrorist.” — James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Oracle

“Jonathan Maberry is the king of the fictional occult and his Joe Ledger is a one-man wrecking crew for zombies and bioterrorists. These action-packed tales read fast and hard. Pick up this book and you won’t put it down;” – Gregg Hurwitz, New York Times Bestselling author of Tell No Lies

“The hard-shelled hero, Baltimore shamus Joe Ledger, deserves to stand alongside F. Paul Wilson’s Repairman Jack in the pantheon of genre icons.  Highest recommendation!”  – Jay Bonansinga, New York Bestselling author of The Walking Dead: Fall of the Governor

“Wow! Maberry’s Patient Zero made me pleasantly nervous for one long afternoon, when I consumed it. It’s a fast-paced, creepy thriller that as prickly as a hospital needle and sounds a little too convincing. This guy is good.” – Joe R. Lansdale

“Jonathan Maberry has found a delightful voice for this adventure of Joe Ledger and his crew: while the action is heated, violent, and furious, the writing remains cool, steady, and low-key, framing all the wildness and exuberance in a calm rationality.” – Peter Straub – New York Times bestselling author and horror master

“Joe Ledger and the DMS have my vote as the team to beat when combating terrorist threats on a grand scale. Jonathan Maberry has struck upon gold, a perfect blend of military thriller and science-based horror.” – David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of First Blood and Creepers

“Maberry’s prose sears, his dialog cuts like a knife, and his characters crackle with life. Joe Ledger rules.” – Douglas Preston, co-author of The Wheel of Darkness and The Book of the Dead

“Hooray for Jonathan Maberry.  Please give us more Joe Ledger right now!” – Victor Gischler, author of Shotgun Opera and Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse

“Jonathan Maberry has created a new genre. Mixing technology, thrills, chills, and procedural noir, Maberry shows why he is one of the freshest voices in fiction. Every reader will want to ride shotgun on Joe Ledger’s adventures.” – Scott Nicholson, author of The Skull Ring

“(Maberry) weaves science, police procedure, and modern anti-terror techniques into a unique blend, and tops it off with a larger than life character who is utterly believable. I couldn’t put it down.”  Jerry Pournelle, New York Times best-selling co-author of Footfall and Lucifer’s Hammer

“Smart, scary, and relentless!’” –Jon McGoran, author of Drift
