About the Author-
  • Jonathan Maberry is a New York Times bestselling author, multiple Bram Stoker Award winner, and Marvel Comics writer.
Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Ray Porter hones his accents and pacing for Maberry's unusual characters with each successive audiobook. Porter easily changes voices to suit the various, mostly male, characters and highlights Maberry's dark sense of humor. As narrator, Porter's consistency is truly appreciated as he ties together these five detective Joe Ledger short stories. In "Deep, Dark," Joe battles geneticists who are turning soldiers into insects; "Material Witness" is a thriller set in Pine Deep, Pennsylvania; "Countdown" is a prequel to "Patient Zero," and "Zero Tolerance" brings closure to parts of "Patient Zero." Finally, "Dog Days" follows the tragic conclusion of "The Dragon Factory." Porter's performance is calm and understated, almost stern, yet often inflects emotions integral to Joe's fears, compassion, and sense of personal loss. Porter is a perfect narrator for these action-packed thrillers. S.C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine

    The 20 stories in this uneven thriller anthology set in Stoker Award–winner Maberry’s alternate universe all feature Joe Ledger, a former Baltimore cop who now defends America from threats both natural and supernatural for the Department of Military Sciences. The series’s premise, as stated in movie producer Tony Eldridge’s foreword, is certainly promising: “Drop John McClane from Die Hard into an episode of Fringe and you’ve entered the world of Joe Ledger.” Jon McGoran’s “Strange Harvest” and Javier Grillo-Marxuach’s “No Business at All,” both clever tales, live up to this challenge. Unfortunately, other entries make the suspension of disbelief an uphill struggle, such as James Ray Tuck’s “White Flame on a Sunday,” in which Ledger and his occult bounty hunter friend, Deacon Chalk, encounter a sigil to summon a Sumerian “elephantine god who will one day destroy the world by stampeding across it, using its immensity to press humanity into a sweet wine for its consumption.” Other contributors include such notable genre authors as Steve Alten, Scott Sigler, Christopher Golden, and Tim Lebbon.
