Ray Porter is a narration master, his "personalities" in ALL of Johnathan Mayberry's books regarding the character Joe Ledger are masterfully done, you don't need to be told which character is talking, when Ray Porter reads your are IN THE STORY. I listen to the Joe ledger series over and over. Also Ghost road blues and Rot and Ruin are must haves!!!
Do you like military sci-FI? Well written action sequences? Great characters? Sarcastic humor? Tight story that will keep you guessing? Great performance? Good, buy this book.
I'm enjoying each book more than the previous, this is a great series that's packed with action and great characters. If you're looking for a cool, action packed story...you'll find it here. I've read too many postings of "critical" nature and quite honestly...almost made me pass on these books - well, I'm glad I ignored those posts and decided for myself. Hopefully, my review will have a positive reaction to anyone pondering getting into the Ledger series...give it a shot, I'm sure you'll be glad you did!
Great story. Suspenseful. With lots of humor. Just curious, do you have to get permission to use all the celebrity names? Highly recommended.
Another great one. My 5th book from this author. As good as the story is, Ray Porter's performance brings it all together with his characterizations and flourish. I'd listen to Ray read the phone book and be fascinated by it.
Can't get enough of Joe Ledger's character! And another crazy set of villains you can't wait to get owned by Echo team. Time for book 4...the adventure continues...
I think I'm addicted to Johnathan Mayberry and Joe Ledger. It seems like just when you think there can't be anything more, suddenly there is! Ray Porter narrates these books and I love the way he reads. If you like this kind of book, you'll love the series.
and this outing doesn't disappoint. it has a good plot, good action, and bad (in a good way) adversaries. I normally listen to one book in a series then change it up and switch series for a book or two. but After the Dragon factory and King of Plagues i'm on to the next of this series, it's that good. (only other series I have done that with was the Grim Noire triology)
Ray Porter is da bomb! His range of "voices" is very broad. There is a scene on a plane where he really sounds like a woman trying to sound like a man. I was genuinely impressed. And he in my ears nails the accents of different languages. Top notch!
