Assassin's Code (Joe Ledger Series #4) by Jonathan Maberry

In ASSASSIN'S CODE, the fourth book in New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Maberry's Joe Ledger series, Joe Ledger and the DMS go on a relentless chase to stop an ancient order of killers from plunging the entire world into Holy War.

When Joe Ledger and Echo Team rescue a group of American college kids held hostage in Iran, the Iranian government then asks them to help find six nuclear bombs planted in the Mideast oil fields. These stolen WMDs will lead Joe and Echo Team into hidden vaults of forbidden knowledge, mass-murder, betrayal, and a brotherhood of genetically-engineered killers with a thirst for blood. Accompanied by the beautiful assassin called Violin, Joe follows a series of clues to find the Book of Shadows, which contains a horrifying truth that threatens to shatter his entire worldview. They say the truth will set you free…not this time. The secrets of the Assassin's Code will set the world ablaze.

Having read the previous books in the Joe Ledger series, I was extremely excited to see Assassin's code come along at the time of the year I'm usually enduring a bit of a dry spell regarding new reading material. The caustic, sarcastic dialogue of Joe Ledger never fails to bring a smile to my face, usually in the midst of some life-or-death situation in which the character frequently finds himself. The alternative history Maberry spins is well thought out and fully engaging. It really had me flashing back to what it felt like reading the Davinci Code. I can't wait to see what world of hurt he drops Joe Ledger into next.

Assassin’s Code is one of the full length novels in the Joe Ledger series by Jonathan Maberry. Joe and his team are sent to Iran to rescue some hostages. Everyone makes it out except Joe. While waiting for his ride out of town, he is contacted by an enemy combatant and given a damaged USB drive. He is also attacked in his hotel room…by a person with super human strength. Fortunately, he appears to have acquired a guardian angel who takes out the intruder. Joe is then on the run, the supposed safe houses are no longer safe. He is also being pursued by another group of people, people who think they are vampire hunters and the Joe is a vampire. Silly people. The USB is analyzed and it is found that there are nuclear bombs that have been hidden away in very specific spots that are intended to cause mass chaos across the world. A master mind from previous Ledger novels makes an appearance here. He is working with several different groups of people causing his own chaos by pitting them against each other. This is a fast, non-stop action story. There is a lot going on in it but it is not difficult to follow. I enjoy the Joe Ledger stories very much and think you will too if you like military adventure, monsters, science fiction, and lots of action and explosions. If you haven’t read a Joe Ledger novel, you could go back to the first, Patient Zero. It explains the DMS. Or, you can jump right into this story and catch up with the others at a later time.

Zombies, and Terrorist and Vampires oh my!  The fourth installment in the Joe Ledger series picks up follows the same template as the three before it but with a new twisted set of challenges.  If you’re a fan of intense action, unique characters and a giant smart ass as your main character, then dive right into “Assassins Code” and enjoy the ride.

This is the best Joe Ledger book besides Patient Zero. The story is very exciting and i love how characters from others stories show up expands more on their background. Joe Ledger is an awesome action character kind of like jason bourne, james bond and captain American all rolled into one.

Tying up a handful of loose threads, this is the most fantastical -- but still remotely plausible -- Joe Ledger adventure.

He's faced zombies, super-soldiers, plagues, and biological warfare. Whats Vampire assassins, other than just a regular day at the Department of Military Science.
