"Joe Ledger: Special Ops" is a fun addition to the action/thriller series produced by Jonathan Maberry. Ledger is a former cop and Army Ranger who heads Echo Team for the Department Of Military Sciences (DMS) headed by the mysterious Deacon Church. The DMS is tasked with being the last line of defense against terrorists who possess the latest in bioweapons, genetic enhancements, and even the supernatural.
In "Joe Ledger: Special Ops", Maberry presents a compilation of Ledger short stories, some old and some new that supplement and enhance the ongoing series. Each of the nine short stories is described as fitting into a timeline, such as occurring after the events of "Patient Zero" or between the novel's "Assassin's Code" and "Extinction Machine" to assist readers in referencing the context.
Indeed, there is a later chapter that outlines an annotated chronological listing of each novel and short story in the Joe Ledger...
I discovered this series on the second book and have been a fan ever since. Jonathan Maberry has become one of my favorite writers. The Joe Ledger series is full of action based of real facts as well as fiction. Graphic in content but it is not gratuitous.
Great short stories featuring Joe and the Gang at DMS. Stories include a prequel to Patient Zero and goes throughout the series. Caution some spoilers so would recommend being at least through Code Zero before reading some of them. Joe Ledger is a great main character, I really enjoy this series (keep thinking it would make a great video game series...preferably a 3rd person RPG ...Joe remains me of a Commander Shepard......hint, hint.. come on developers get started on it, and this comes from a 50yo plus woman not your typical gamer)
