Despite the events of The Dragon Factory, Joe Ledger returns for a different kind of mission. There's a huge terrorist attack in London and Ledger and the DMS are on sight to investigate. Soon they realise this is only the beginning as the mysterious Seven Kings plan to recreate the biblical plagues.

This is another great book where nothing is really as it seems. Ledger and the gang are fighting an invisible enemy whose plans are virtually impossible to work out. Sebastian Gault and Toys from Patient Zero are part of the Seven Kings, though they are not the same as they were before.

It's action packed with a long list of action scenes couples brilliantly with the development of Ledger coping with all the horrors and the loss of Grace. He does have a great new dog called Ghost who is a wonderful edition to the team. Plus there's all sorts of new characters including the enigmatic Circe and lots of celebrity cameos including a speaking role for U2's Bono.

Once again Maberry has produced an exciting book which is action-packed, physiological and political. It's breath-taking!
