“I didn’t plan to kill anyone. I wasn’t totally against the idea, either. Sometimes things just fall that way, and either you roll with it or it rolls over you. Letting the bad guys win isn’t how I roll.”

    "Unnecessary"

    If you've already read PATIENT ZERO then you don't need this.

    If you haven't read PATIENT ZERO, this very very slightly helps kick start things, but 90% of what you hear on this 19 minute mini story, gets repeated later in the main novel anyway.

    While not bad, it's just way too short, and way to much of what you get in the main book anyway.

    "Good but VERY short"
    Where does Countdown rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    If you've already read Patient Zero, just skip this. If you are thinking about reading Patient Zero then READ THIS!!

    "Disappointing"

    I love the Joe Ledger books, but this was disappointing. At only 19 minutes, you would think that there would need to be something special about this story to justify it being published at all. That is not the case. Much of this is word-for-word the same as the first few paragraphs of Patient Zero. Save your money and skip Countdown.

    Story
    "Yay. A Prequel."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Countdown to be better than the print version?

    I have no idea. I haven't read the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Joe's really the only character in the book. As it should be.


    What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?

    Every. Word.


    Any additional comments?

    Even though a lot of this happens in the first chapter in Patient Zero, I enjoyed this very short short alot. Joe makes me smile.
