Almost as good as the full books which is quite a feat only reason I give the story 4 stars are because of the length (or rather shortness). Ray Porter pulls the overall up to five stars, as his performance is (as usual) eminent! It is a very good idea teading this after at least reading Patient Zero and The Dragon Factory as some of the references are from those two books.
Excellent tie up of loose ends of other Joe Ledger books as well as several surprising & independent short stories. Well worth the listen. I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy the Joe Ledger books!
I felt cheated with this book. Rip off in my humble opinion. They should give this book for free when you buy others in the series or sell it for $1.99.

A collection of short stories, some of which tie up loose ends to the major Joe Ledger books and some of which are stand along. The blend of action and intrigue with the usual cast is a must for any Joe Ledger fan.
Novellas and short stories are often a toss-up. Can the author make these characters work in a shorter form? For Mr. Maberry the answer is YES YES YES. Look around, some of these stories are also available as stand alone. Get the collection. You can read them almost anytime, except you want to read them after Dragon Factory if you can. I think having read them (one in particular) before King of Plagues made that one work better for me. KoP would have worked without the background but I had it from the novella and I liked that I did. Even when I read Assasins Code I was glad to have read these first, especially "that one". And Mr. Porter is excellent as usual with Joe and all the other characters.
This book links the plots together
The realness of it
EVERYTHING, He is fabulous
Either Joe or Mr Church
Just read the series, over and over
Willy Wonka of it
Filling in gaps
Probably Deacon. More and more I prefer his cool, detached and rational demeanor to the more emotional and brash personalities of Joe and Grace.
Well, it's a collection of stories, so hard to say. I'd say the last story was one of the best though.
Nope, just filling in the blanks. An enjoyable collection for sure.
This is a bundle of stories that fills in the gaps between other Ledger tales. On their own, not worth a credit, but together? Totally worth it.
