In this collection of five short stories, Jonathan Maberry fills in the blanks in his action-thriller Joe Ledger novels.
In this prequel to Patient Zero, meet Joe Ledger, Baltimore PD, attached to a Homeland Security task force … who’s about to get a serious promotion.
"Zero Tolerance" picks up a few weeks after the close of Patient Zero. Dropping back into the world of former Baltimore cop Joe Ledger, the Department of Military Sciences, and flesh-eating zombies, fans of the series will finally get closure on a few loose ends.
Before former Baltimore cop Joe Ledger goes up against competing geneticists looking to continue the master-race program in The Dragon Factory, he must battle another foe using human test subjects for his sinister plans.
This short thriller takes Joe Ledger into the mysterious, troubled town of Pine Deep, Pennsylvania, the setting for Maberry’s chilling Pine Deep Trilogy. In Pine Deep, nothing is what it seems.
Joe Ledger returns in this tale that follows the tragic conclusion of The Dragon Factory. In the wake of a devastating personal loss, Joe Ledger and his new canine partner, Ghost, go hunting for the world’s deadliest assassin.

Joe Ledger Rules
I love them all. Joe, Bunny, Top, and Mr. Church are all so well defined and brought to life.
I enjoyed their visit to Pine Deep.
A must for Ledger's fans. The short stories really help fill in some of the gaps between the novels.
Harry Turtledove fan
Filled the gaps. Ghost was introduced. Always wondered how a cat person switched to a Dog. It was a bit unconventional.
The narration is really, really in-the-place thing. I felt i was living the character.
When Joe was surprised about the killer.
Keep it up Ray Porter.
I like Jonathan Maberry and his action packed and scientific based stories.
It's multiple stories so its not a full length novel. I might have enjoyed listening to one file extended out just a bit but I understand why the book was written or at least published in the form that it was.
Ray Porter is up there with some of the best.
No maybe 3 sittings
For those of you that are wanting to tie up some loose ends in the Joe Ledger Series this book is for you, but if you did not listen to the first 3 stories prior to this book, you will be lost.
Listening to some of the background from the series was great!
ummm. Joe Ledger of course?????
Probably the small town story, was a great one.
Really? I won't even answer that one, OK, I will... JOE LEDGER
Listen, Love it
Fiction lover, wannabe writer. lost of flights with my new job. Audible is PERFECT to keep me up the books I want to read.
Ray Porter OWNS Joe Ledger.
This was right on par with the other three books, can't wait for the next one.
only mentioned in the book, but Grace - DUH!
Can't wait for the next one ! ! ! !
Intriguing, riveting, intense
You cannot and will not forget Joe Ledger visiting Pine Deep and running into a couple of our faves from that series. And when he finally catches up to Amirah, the scene that plays out is quite interesting.
Ray Porter has this dry, sarcastic tone when he's voicing Ledger, yet when he voices Top and Bunny, it's completely different. He does each character justice in inflection and attitude.
There were a couple of scenes that had me laughing. Top asking Ledger why the old guy always had to run up and down the stairs....trust me, you have to listen.
The combination of Jonathan Maberry's writing and Ray Porter's narration combine for an awesome set of short stories. It helps if you've read at least one or two books in the Ledger series, but if I didn't know what was going on, this would certainly make me want to take a peek.

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.
Having read the previous Joe Ledger books, this was my first audiobook in the series. Narration is perfect. Every character is distinct and acted out. It makes it sound dramatized rather than just purely a reading. Here's hoping the narrator performs Maberrys earlier books. Stories may seem random but I really recommend reading ALL of Maberrys previous books to get the best experience. Love this writer!
