Benny Imura has grown-up never knowing anything different; his last memories of his parents tainted by the image of them becoming zombies. Now Benny is fifteen, and his brother Tom wants him to join the family business and train as a zombie killer. The last thing Benny wants is to work with Tom --- but at least the job should be an easy ride. Then the brothers head into the Rot and Ruin, an area full of wandering zombies, and Benny realises that being a bounty hunter isn't just about whacking zombies. As he's confronted with the truths about the world around him, Benny finds his beliefs challenged and makes the most terrifying discovery of all, that sometimes the worst monsters you can imagine, are human...

In a world filled with Bugs-monsters that ceaselessly ravage the Earth-Milo Silk has a hard time keeping his dreams separate from reality.

Terrorists have a death-defying bioweapon that threatens to turn innocent civilians into man-eating zombies.In Dragon Factory, Joe Ledger and the DMS face-off against two competing groups of geneticists. One side is creating exotic transgenic monsters and enhanced mercenary armies; the other is using modern technology to continue the Nazi Master Race program begun by Josef Mengele.King of Plagues introduces Joe and his DMS team to a massively powerful secret society bent on world destruction. They plan to use the Ten Plagues of Egypt to destroy global economies unless Joe can stop them.In Assassin's Code, Joe Ledger and Echo Team go on a relentless chase to stop an ancient order of killers from plunging the world into Holy War.

The president is trapped, and the plane is now a missal; it has become Predator One. In Kill Switch, a terrifying new kind of assassin has the power to take over people's minds in order to wreak chaos on the world. A terrorist group has acquired one hundred E-bombs. Each bomb's electromagnetic pulse is powerful enough to blow out all power and all technology from a major city. Joe must stop the criminals waiting for the lights to go out.
