I DON'T WANT TO KILL YOU,

AND YOU DON'T WANT TO BE DEAD.
First, read the Publishers Summary for the list of stories. Many of these are sold separately and you may already own them. I had bought one, but still bought the collection anyways. It saves money to buy the collection, instead of one at a time. HE KNEW MY VIEW ON HESITATION, DON'T.

These stories range from good to excellent and are all about Joe Ledger. If you have not read Maberry this is a good place to start and if you have read him, you will love these even more.
The first story may be confusing, as it is more of an excerpt, then a story. Most of it is actually chapter three of Patient Zero and stops just before the best chapter in the book. One story even connects Ledger to the Pine Deep trilogy.

Ray Porter and Jonathan Maberry go together like John Scalzi and Wil Wheaton, a perfect match.

More please!!!

Having read the previous Joe Ledger books, this was my first audiobook in the series. Narration is perfect. Every character is distinct and acted out. It makes it sound dramatized rather than just purely a reading. Here's hoping the narrator performs Maberrys earlier books. Stories may seem random but I really recommend reading ALL of Maberrys previous books to get the best experience. Love this writer!
