"Hope this is indicative"
I already have Patient Zero in my library so I hope this is indicative of JM's writing. The story seemed to flow naturally. I chuckled a time or two and I felt for the character. For me it also always helps to have a dog in the story. I normally don't like stories with long fight scenes, as I don't believe it takes a lot of talent to write fight scenes, and I prefer that they just tell me who won. The fight scene was not too long, seemed necessary and had a surprise.
This isn't Proust or George Eliot, but it fits my taste.
At 57 minutes I am hoping it is a good introduction to Maberry's work.
Narrator was great.
Charlie Huston's "Joe Pitt" series. I lucked out by buying both series. Joe Pitt first. He was a similar guy but different scenario all together. Both had me in the first few pages. I still look for new books but am sad to say I read both series. I know a new Joe Ledger is coming soon though
ray Porter is one of the best narrators ever. His voice abilities are amazing. he identifies with each character and you can identify who is who by the accent and tone. the man has a God Given Talent. I will look for books narrated by him
Not one, many but then I would give so e of it away
If you enjoy a little bad guy being a good guy, fighting supernatural beings and or unusual creatures with edge of your seat anticipation, this is for you
"Another hit for Maberry"
Absolutely near the top
Specifically in this story would be the introduction of Ghost. Overall the great style of writing Maberry produces
Porter gives a stellar performance.
Hands down Joe Ledger is one of the best characters created. Maberry writes with so much wit, sarcasm and humor that you can’t help but fall in love (and laugh out loud) with Joe and the rest of DMS.
Probably not, there are very few books I reread.
"Blood of the Reich" by William Dietrich
You can run but you can't hide from Joe Ledger
Filled in the unanswered question left over from "The Dragon Factory"
"A Perfect Short Story. Will make you want more!"
I wanted to try this author and narrator out. This was the best story to do that with.
There will be more to read of this story later. You will want to buy this story, full length and enjoy the characters.This book is a complete story in itself. Even this being a short , it was very enjoyable and action filled! Very much worth the download. Narration was excellent
"Great to Find a great new Series"
Yes. The pacing, character development, and narration are first class.
Like a good Steve king story, the characters are developed and believable. The tension is developed early and the story moves quickly.
I was so drawn in by the performance that I forgot it was just one reader.
Yes it is a short sample
I will be reading more of this series and author.
"Man's best friend + revenge = good story"
No, the story moved along at a nice pace. I went it to it knowing this is a short story to hold me over until the next book in the serious became available.
The ending was satisfying. The story helps in creating the base relationship between Joe and his K-9 partner Ghost.
I have listened to the Joe Ledger series 1-3 as well as the missing files, all of the short stories to date. This work ties in nicely with his others.
I could see the Joe Ledger story told through movies. My Choice for Joe, Michael C. Hall
Great read if you follow the Joe Ledger story.
"Intense thrill ride"
This is a thrilling story of ledgers vengence on a man named veder. This story picks up after the dragon factory. If you are a fan of jonathan maberrys joe ledger series. This is a must buy! This was my first audio and i loved it. It was very exciting! I got it to listen to while i layed down and ended up listening twice! Get this! Maberry worked his magic very well! Youll be sorry if you dont!
"Ghost is the dog I want..."
I dont normally purchase the short sequels or prequels, but since it was Joe Ledger and I was done with all of his recent books and waiting for the next one to come out, I ordered this on audiobook.
GHOST of course!
How Joe first came attached with GHOST during the training.
audiobook was short but the story line was taught and it was over way too soon
Don/t EVER kill GHOST off Jonathan!
"I paid for the last chapter of the previous book?!"
Really disappointing that I had to pay $5 to read the last chapter of The Dragon factory. Really upset with the author allowing this to happen and for the greedy public lister and audible for supporting it. I read a book a week but it's still not enough for the freely vultures.
