About the book

A small island off the coast of Japan is torn apart by a bioweapon that drives everyone—men, women, and children—insane with murderous rage. The people behind that attack want Korea united or destroyed. No middle ground. No mercy. And they are willing to punish any country that stands in the way—the United States, China, and Japan could all be consumed by a plague of pure destructive slaughter.

Joe Ledger leads his newly formed band of international troubleshooters in their first mission to stop the terror cell, fighting alongside agents from North and South Korea. With the lives of billions at stake, Ledger is willing to bring his own brand of terror to this frightening new war.

Rage is the first of the new adventures of Joe Ledger and Rogue Team International.

My Thoughts

This is a new series name but it really is another Joe Ledger book and we see favorite characters from the previous series along with some new faces. I did initially find the storyline hard to follow as it jumps around between the past and present A LOT and trying to figure out when certain scenes were taking place vs other scenes was initially quite difficult for me. However, as the story progressed and we learn more and more about each character it all came together to make another fascinating Joe Ledger adventure. The action is pretty much non-stop and as per past Ledger books it takes you on an adventure roller coaster as he and his team race to stop by the bad guys. One of my favorite things about the Ledger books is his quips and sarcastic thoughts about whatever he is going through. I did wish there was a little more of characters like his dog Ghost and Violin but was happy to see Toys make a great cameo. If you were a fan of the past Ledger books this is definitely another great read to add to the collection. If you haven’t read the previous Joe Ledger series, I highly suggest it!
