This is book number 1 in the Joe Ledger series.
“The ultimate terrorist biological weapon is about to be unleashed on U.S. soil, and our only hope is Joe Ledger. Filled with zombies, terrorists, and some of the best action in years, Patient Zero, an electric thriller, will warm up those cold March nights with pure terror.”
— Katie Glasgow, Mitchell Books, Fort Wayne, IN
Monday, 1300 Hours: Joe Ledger kills terrorist Javad Mustapha, aka Patient Zero, with two point-blank shots from his Glock .45.
Wednesday, 0800 Hours: Patient Zero rises from the dead…
When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week, there's either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills... and there's nothing wrong with Joe Ledger's skills. Ledger, a Baltimore detective assigned to a counterterrorism task force, is recruited by the government to lead a new ultrasecret rapid-response group called the Department of Military Sciences (DMS) to help stop a group of terrorists from releasing a dreadful bio-weapon that can turn ordinary people into zombies.
"Plenty of man-to-zombie combat…a fast and furious read."—Publishers Weekly
"As palatable as your favorite flavor of ice cream. A memorable book."—Peter Straub

This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.
“Brilliant, shocking, horrifying, it puts the terror back in terrorist.” —James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author
“Plenty of man-to-zombie combat…a fast and furious read.” —Publishers Weekly
“I had a fine old time reading Patient Zero. Jonathan Maberry has found a delightful voice for this adventure of Joe Ledger and his crew: while the action is heated, violent, and furious, the writing remains cool, steady, and low-key, framing all the wildness and exuberance in a calm rationality (given an almost comic edge) that renders it as palatable as your favorite flavor of ice cream. This is a lovely feat, and Maberry has written a memorable book.” —Peter Straub
“Patient Zero is high-octane excitement from beginning to end, and the start of a fabulous new series. Joe Ledger and the DMS have my vote as the team to beat when combatting terrorist threats on a grand scale.” —David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author
“Scary, creepy, and gripping--Patient Zero is Night of the Living Dead meets Michael Crichton.” —Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author
“A fast-paced, creepy thriller that as prickly as a hospital needle and sounds a little too convincing. This guy is good.” —Joe R. Lansdale
