“I love this series. At little of this and a little of that keeps you very interested. I love how Jonathan Maberry brings things into play from the previous books. He makes it seem easy to bring zombies, vampires, and clones into a real world situation and keep it serious.”Heather B wrote this review Tuesday, July 17, 2012.

“Assassin’s Code: A Joe Leger Novel is a fast-paced thriller with a slightly paranormal edge. Joe Ledger is an engaging hero. He is tough, but not superhuman, with a wise-cracking sense of humor, a split personality and a scarred pysche. Along with the team Joe commands is his dog, Ghost. I worried that the dog would either be a throwaway character or would otherwise be distracting. Instead, Ghost was a solid character in his own right, and an effective foil for Joe in what might otherwise be interior monologues.
Assassin’s Code is not a conventional thriller, it is a little over the top and a bit fantastical. But in a tremendously entertaining way. The plot involves stolen nukes, ancient shadowy organizations that date back to the Crusades, and vampires. Put it all together and you wind up with a page-turning thriller that holds your attention from beginning to end and leaves you wanting more. Jonathan Maberry is a skilled writer with a great imagination. I wasn’t even finished reading this book before I’d ordered more books in the series.
This was my first time reading this author and this series. Reading the earlier books may have given me a deeper appreciation of the characters, but it read fine as a stand alone book. Assassin’s Code is great fun and everything you expect in an action adventure thriller. Highly recommended. I was fortunate to receive an advance copy of this book from netgalley.”
