This review will stand for the whole series. I have bought and read all nine. All confirmed purchases. I enjoyed them all very much. Not literature but fast moving, exciting action on the Kindle screen that suited me perfectly the last few months that have been so nerve wracking (Covid 19). I like the main character: Captain Joe Ledger. His friends, boss, enemies, frenemies and all the very imaginative bad guys that kept coming back. Descriptions: well pictured, not difficult to imagine. Mr. Maberry has good command of language. I do not precis a story, I recommend or not according to my taste. If you enjoy the first book in the series, you will enjoy them all. I did and then bought "Rage" the first book in the new Ledger series. Which I also enjoyed. Recommended for the reader that enjoys a little break from reality and is prepared to spend that break with a different kind of America. Spoiler: guess who is the un-named president in Rage!
