Anarchy vs Order
Anytime that Joe Ledger and Ghost get into the mix, there's a narrative to how Mr Maberry describes the action and how Mr Porter provides the inner voice of the character is remarkable.
Mr Porter makes Joe Ledger's world come alive. I have dozens of audiobooks and I cant think of a better pairing than Mr Maberry's work and Mr Porter's narration.
I am always impressed by the level of internal psychology (and external display of same -- ex: Mr Church's character) that Mr Maberry imbues into the Joe Ledger character. As a fan, I've heard how Joe describes the conflict that goes on in his head as he encounters genetically-modified super-solders, vampires, zombies, and all around super-villians and I am always impressed with how he layers this conflict and presents it in a way that makes these characters very different from how others approach this genre. It's as if I have a viewport into the mind of James Bond - if he were blue collar and American.
As a final comment, I offer this to Mr Maberry -- I've had the pleasure meeting you twice and hearing about how you create and explore the nuances of your characters. I know that the other (monster) genre is becoming very popular and I'm very happy for you, but please, please please dont stop writing about the the trials and tribulations of Mr Joe Ledger and his team at the DMS!
