Patient Zero by Jonathan Maberry
If you’re a Walking Dead fan and longing for some new action get ready for a blast. When a sharp tonged Baltimore Detective named Joe Ledger is inducted by the FBI into a terrorist squad on his day off it definitely perked my interest. After snatching him up on his day off and throwing him into a black SUV it gets even better. A government official gives Joe the run down that a group of terrorists have a new chemical weapon that tips the scale to their advantage and they’re looking for a guy like Joe to help. From the first page I was drawn in and sent rocketing at breakneck speed into an action-packed world of horror and violence. Joe Ledger’s attitude and skills made him a fantastic hero against nasty terrorists that use a secret weapon that will blow you away. This is the first novel is the series and a total stand out as a unique concept that combined my favorite genres Scifi, horror and espionage. Strap on your seat belt and get ready for a shocking roller-coaster ride around the world. I highly recommend this novel. The fight and action scenes were outrageously fun.
