About the Author

'Maberry has outdone himself with a deliciously diabolical plot and bone-chilling scenarios that keep you riveted to every page. Brutal action, insanely intelligent, and so real that the hair on the back of your neck stands up!" L.A. Banks Jonathan Maberry is a stunning dark thriller writer and a fabulous new talent

Reviews

"Breakneck pacing, nonstop action, and a subtle sense of humor, this is an utterly readable blend of adventure fiction, suspense thriller, and horror." - Publishers Weekly "A fast-paced, brilliantly written novel. The hottest thriller of the New Year! In "The King of Plagues", Jonathan Maberry reigns supreme." -- Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of "The Athena Project" "Joe Ledger and the DMS are back in their most brutal tale yet as they face off against a diabolical organization who is always one step ahead. As the sinister plot is exposed and the body count rises, THE KING OF PLAGUES is impossible to put down. Be prepared to lose some sleep." - Jeremy Robinson, author of THRESHOLD and INSTINCT"While most are content to sleepwalk through the third book in a successful series, Jonathan Maberry wages all-out destructive war on complacency. "The King of Plagues" expands the Joe Ledger universe, deepens existing characters while introducing bold new ones, and unleashes a runaway brain of a thriller plot turbocharged with a depraved spirit of invention. Next to Joe Ledger, Jack Bauer, Fox Mulder and Jason Bourne are rank amateurs." - Javier Grillo-Marxuach, Emmy Award winning writer/producer, "Lost," "Medium," "The Middleman."
