Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Science Fiction, 2014
In Extinction Machine, the fifth Joe Ledger book by Jonathan Maberry, the DMS must go up against someone - or something - in search of new technology that could bring about world war.
The president of the United States vanishes from the White House. A top-secret prototype stealth fighter is destroyed during a test flight. Witnesses on the ground say that it was shot down by a craft that immediately vanished at impossible speeds. All over the world, reports of UFOs are increasing at an alarming rate. And in a remote fossil dig in China dinosaur hunters have found something that is definitely not of this earth. There are rumors of alien-human hybrids living among us.
Joe Ledger and the Department of Military Sciences rush headlong into the heat of the world’s strangest and deadliest arms race, because the global race to recover and retro-engineer alien technologies has just hit a snag. Someone - or something - wants that technology back.

Another Amazing Entry in the Series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, but only after I'd made them listen to all the other books in the series.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Well, I admit to loving Joe the most, but Ghost is a close second. And Bunny. And Top. And Mr. Church.And Bug.....Maybe I should just confess that I love all the good guys and the bad guys get what they deserve.

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

I've said it before and I will say it again. RAY PORTER IS AN AUDIO GOD. Seriously. The expressiveness in his voice (he never, ever reads you the story. He tells you the story) is amazing, but his range of voices is not of this world. How on Earth can the voices of Mr. Church and Top Sims come out of the same person? And he is one of the few guys who can make a female voice sound authentic.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Fingers. That is all I am going to say.

Any additional comments?

Can you tell I'm an out and out fangirl? This series just gets better and better. WIth any luck, Mr. Maberry is chained to a desk somewhere working on the next installment.

Joe Ledger is Damn Good!!

This book was awesome, liked it more than the previous book. I really wanna explain here why i liked this book. But the smallest slip and you will press "No" down below so i'll be careful.

This book started good, i mean really really good. Then it was really fun, then again damn good. This how was the book the whole way through it, I either laughed from a joke, or was intensely focused on what was going on.

New characters come to play in this bok. and major action is going through the whole thing.. i really can't explain more other than if you didn't ready this series yet, so grap the first book and all of them and read them NOW!!!

What do you want me to say more? Narration was good? Author is good???? YOU KNOW THAT ALREADY!!! A great series

This is a very well written & formulated story, I can't wait to read more from this author.
