    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    very much so. There are lots of twists and turns I enjoyed it.

    When Cade called Zach by his first name.

    A prison doctor injects a condemned serial killer with a formula designed to keep his consciousness awake while his body rots in the grave. But all drugs have unforeseen side-effects. Before he can be buried, the killer wakes up. Hungry. Infected. Contagious. This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang… but a bite.

    Sure would, it kept me on the edge of my seat and pulled me in looking for more!

    Ghost Road Blues. Another great novel and listen I might add. Love his take on the Zombie apocalypse.

    His inflection of each character and how he brings them to life in your head.

    Dez Fox of course.. A woman who has many issues but can still fight through them and kick some zombie butt...!

    What made the experience of listening to Extinction Machine the most enjoyable?

    The story line and the narration is phenomenal!!!! There is no one better than Ray Porter for Joe Ledger!


    What other book might you compare Extinction Machine to and why?

    I really can't say as Jonathan's characters are so exquisitely written...


    What does Ray Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is an excellent narrator... He shouldn't be considered as "Read by" it should be "Performed by"


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole book was excellent...


    Any additional comments?

    I love how Jonathan writes and the humanity he gives his characters (even if they are a little over the top) :) and the way he can evoke such gut wrenching emotion from a reader to actively despise a character is a credit to his skill... Thank you for Joe and all of the DMS... Much appreciated and a great ride!!!

    From the powerful imagination of a horror master comes a bone-chilling tale set in a small town where good and evil are joined in a terrifying, deadly battle. Once an idyllic Pennsylvania village, Pine Deep awoke one morning to find itself bathed in a massive bloodletting. Twice in 30 years, the townsfolk have endured the savage hungers of a murderous madman—but if the residents think the death of serial killer Karl Ruger put an end to the carnage, they’re dead wrong.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Man’s Song?

    When Iron Mike Sweeney is saved.


    What about Tom Weiner’s performance did you like?

    Tom had great inflections and different character voices. He really brought them alive for me!


    If you could rename Dead Man’s Song, what would you call it?

    That's a hard one... Pine Deep Lives! ?


    Any additional comments?

    Johnathan Maberry is an excellent author and I am grateful he decided to jump to his outside writing ventures, as that us how I discovered him. He brings all his characters alive and makes the reader jump right into the story to be pulled along emotionally with each up and down of the protagonist. Keep all your new work as fresh Johnathan!!!

    Dorian Gray, a handsome and narcissistic young man, lives thoughtlessly for his own pleasure. One day, after having his portrait painted, Dorian makes a frivolous Faustian wish: that he should always remain as young and beautiful as he is in that painting, while the portrait grows old in his stead.

    The wish comes true, and Dorian soon finds that none of his wicked actions have visible consequences. Realizing that he will appear fresh and unspoiled no matter what kind of life he lives, Dorian becomes increasingly corrupt. Only the portrait grows degenerate and ugly, a powerful symbol of Dorian's internal ruin.

    Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.

    We've got your newest action hero here...

    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    In a locked Honolulu office building, three men are found dead with no sign of struggle except for the ultrafine, razor-sharp cuts covering their bodies. The only clue left behind is a tiny bladed robot, nearly invisible to the human eye. In the lush forests of Oahu, groundbreaking technology has ushered in a revolutionary era of biological prospecting. Trillions of microorganisms, tens of thousands of bacteria species, are being discovered; they are feeding a search for priceless drugs and applications on a scale beyond anything previously imagined.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Micro to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed this book and the narrator. I have been a Michael Crichton fan for years and I really miss his writing. This was a very nice unexpected find since I did not realize that he has been published posthumously. Thank you to Richard Preston for finishing the work.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    very much so it was a great listen and I did not realize that I was sucked in until it was almost over!


    Have you listened to any of John Bedford Lloyd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes and he is a very good narrator. I enjoy his style and voice!


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you to the Michael Crichton foundation/trust for keeping his legacy going!
