Publisher's Summary

Robots are no longer science fiction. Autonomous, programmed to react like animals: fast, relentless, deadly. From microscopic nanobots to massive self-guided aircraft. This technology is here, it's assessable, and it's dangerous. What's even scarier is that almost anyone can get their hands on it.
A freelance terrorist uses the latest generation of robot dogs to deliver WMDs into cities across America. Sophisticated military weapons systems turn on their human masters. A technological apocalypse is coming, and we may be too late to stop it.
Joe Ledger and a newly rebuilt Department of Military Sciences square off against this new and terrible threat. Dogs of War pits Joe against a merciless new enemy and an army of techno-terrorists in a race to prevent a global destruction.
Let loose the Dogs of War.

Mayberry plus Porter is always magic

While the plot is not aliens, zombies, or crazed geneticists Dogs of War is read beautifully by Ray Porter and written in an engaging rhythm by Mayberry. Always impressed by these two, and halfway through the book I'm very impressed. Authors: never hire anyone but Ray Porter!

Not the Best in a FANTASTIC Series

If you could sum up Dogs of War in three words, what would they be?

Not That Great


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I don't think the ending was very surprising... Unless I missed something


What does Ray Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Hes fantastic enough said.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. The Joe Ledger series is one of my favorites. Don't get me wrong this is a good book. That being said it has to be one of my least favorite of the series. It seemed somewhat phoned in. There where way too many long unnecessary deviations, and the bad guy/s weren't that interesting in the end. I couldn't stop listening until about 3/4 of the way through and then I started to get worried. I don't want to spoil anything, but if all these bad guys knew each other than why the heck didn't they just work together instead of each doing their own thing? That is kind of why I feel this book was phoned in. That being said it had a lot of potential and the build up is pretty good, but it doesn't pay off. Now I put this series upp there with Mitch Rapp, Scott Harvath, and Pike Logan especially. A not so great Joe Ledger book is still a good book. This one just felt very disjointed and had so many missed opportunities.

Again its still a Joe Ledger book, and if your a fan I wouldn't hesitate.


Any additional comments?

The next book will be really good. I have no doubt, the author had to get this one out of his system and tie up some of these loose ends.
