    "If you have already read Missing Files"

    Or any other of Maberry's other short stories, then most stories in this book have already been published.
    I listened to the Missing Files book, and read 2 others from Amazon, so only one story was new to me.
    If you haven't already listened to Joe Ledger, Missing Files, then this a great addition to the Ledger series.
    Just a heads up.

    "Another Winner!"
    Where does Joe Ledger: Special Ops rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Well, I love the Joe Ledger stuff. This collection of new and old short stories was as awesome as the novels.


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

    Yep! It was great to finally get a sliver of Mr. Church's backstory. I have a million questions after hearing "Changeling" and I hope Mr. Maberry revisits that story line at some point.


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

    He is Joe Ledger. His performance ,as always, is superb.


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

    The fight scene where Joe admits defeat. And (in a different story) I laughed out loud at Joe's "naked" fighting style.


    Any additional comments?

    This series is absolutely the best thing going. Keep it coming, Mr. Maberry. WRITE FASTER!!!

    Story
    "A great way to get your Joe Ledger fix!"

    This book is a series of short stories that take place in timelines around those featured in the novels. While not required, I think these stories are best enjoyed once you have finished all the main novels. There are some "spoilers" in the short stories when the characters refer to events that happened at the conclusions of the different novels.

    Even though the book consists of stand-alone stories, there is some context-setting at the beginning of each that explains when/where each one takes place.

    Each story is substantial enough to be enjoyed in its own right. It actually felt similar to a regular Joe Ledger novel since those tend to be a series of action-packed episodes back to back anyway.

    To me, it was every bit as enjoyable as any of the other novels, which means it was a rocking 5-star listen.

    And there is an awesome bonus story at the end. An interview between Jonathan Maberry (the author) and Ray Porter (the narrator). It offers really terrific insight into how Ray goes about preparing for and recording the novels. It is also clear that Jonathan is as big a Ray Porter fan as I am! Worth the price of a credit all by itself. Enjoy!

    Story
    "Great additions to the Ledger universe!"

    A few of the tales in this book were in the last collection, and some others appeared elsewhere. That threw me off at first since I started skipping through stories and ended up missing half of one I hadn't heard.

    That said, they're all top-notch as usual. I especially enjoyed changeling, which added some more mysteries to the overall Joe Ledger universe.

    I also enjoyed the last story in the collection, which starts off years ago and actually follows Mr Church before the DMS was formed before catching up to the present with Joe. It was good to hear a bit more of St. Germaine
