One of My Favorite Thriller Series
As the holidays approach friends are asking for recommendations of great novels. They're flying or taking long road trips and want something absorbing and mindless they can listen to. I have so many favorite authors. Some are personal friends. Some were either my professors or my classmates at writers school. Still, right now there's one who stands out--Jonathan Maberry's Joe Ledger series. Jonathan is a New York Times best-selling and multiple Bram Stoker Award-winning suspense author, editor, comic book writer, magazine feature writer, playwright, content creator and writing teacher/lecturer. He was named one of the Today’s Top Ten Horror Writers. A credible author, in other words. He won't waste your time.
His Joe Ledger series features the Department of Military Sciences as a governmental take-out-the-trash kind of organization doing our nation's dirty work. Jonathan's carefully crafted characters, zippy dialog, and action scenes make this series perfect for passing the time on a long flight or in the car on a snowy highway. There are 11 books in the Ledger series. Patient Zero and Dragon Factory are the first two. Great starts. I highly recommend the audiobook narrated by Ray Porter.
