Publisher's Summary

What do you do when the power goes off?
Terrorists have acquired a terrible new weapon that can crash the power grid and plunge America into a new dark age. A coordinated attack is planned to shut out all lights and emergency services to 10 major cities. Planes will fall, hospitals will go dark, no help will come.
And in that terrible darkness, a dreadful plague will be released. If the lights go off, nothing can stop the bioweapon from killing millions.
At the same time, the intelligence services are being torn apart from within by a plague of betrayal, murder, and suicide. Even the Department of Military Sciences is stumbling in its response to the growing threat.
Time is running out, and Joe is being hunted by a terrifying new kind of assassin. A team of remote viewers have the ability to take over any person and turn ordinary citizens into killers. Where can you turn when there's nobody left to trust?
Joe Ledger faces his deadliest challenge as friends and allies become enemies and all of the lights begin to go out...

When the lights go out

SO what can you really say about this series that has not already been said. It just keeps getting better and better. Maberry will make you believe that your neighborhood is filled with zombies, or that drones will get you at a sports stadium or even that the guy sitting next to you at Starbucks drinking his latte is a quarter alien. So, to be honest I did not listen to the book yet but I just want my review to be posted first to let everyone know what is guaranteed in this book

1. Ledger, Church, Ghost and the rest of the team are bad asses
2. Ray Porter is going to bring it with his performance
3. Yes, Maberry will make you believe this could actually happen
4. Every other single book in this series will be inter woven in to this one
5. And… Church will have a friend in the industry
One last guarantee, this will receive 5 stars in all categories from me. Happy listening!!

Joe Ledger should be on the big screens

loved it. it did not disappoint. Certainly a detailed listen, it was a slight bit predictable, and the previous books I thought were stronger, but this was still a great listen.

Ray Porter is Joe ledger

Would be weird to hear anyone else. Yes good entry into the series this, the most 'out there' plot to date, but very enjoyable. I'm sadly completely up to date so bring on the next please

Kill Switch.

Just love the Joe Ledger books. Such great stories and the narration is exquisite. Another few hours spent in bliss - I look forward to getting back in the car for the commute so I can listen to the next chapter.

Where is the editor, the discipline, the originality? Whenever it began to get interesting the author slammed the door back down, leaving us with platitudes and truly bad writing for three times the length this plot needed to be.
