ASSASSIN'S CODE by Jonathan Maberry
Released: April 10, 2012

"The story's fast pace helps it go down easy, but it's almost all empty calories."
Even protagonist Joe Ledger, hero of three previous Maberry novels (The King of Plagues, 2011, etc.), knows that the premise of his latest adventure is totally ridiculous: Ledger scoffs at the idea of vampires with nuclear bombs, and Maberry can't quite make a convincing case for them either.
