“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.”
Meet Joe Ledger, Baltimore PD, attached to a Homeland task force … who’s about to get a serious promotion.

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.
If you've already read Patient Zero, just skip this. If you are thinking about reading Patient Zero then READ THIS!!
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.
They call this a prequel but it's more like the prologue from Countdown.
Imagine a physical book and the first 3 pages before the chapters begin, that's what this is.
If your expecting info on Ledger you won't find it in this. Everything in this short is covered in the beginning of Countdown.
Don't waste your money/credit trust me!!!
okay, very well done! very well read! covered the unknown facts of three story! you soul read this book... with some vanilla wafers !
Someone who is unsure if they want to listen to 'Patient Zero'?
Yes - Patient Zero was AWESOME
Didn't have one
Dissappointment, anger? Other tha a vague intro to Mr. Church this was $3.95 to listen to word for work parts of Patient Zero. There was nothing in here worth listening to if you are going to listen to Patient Zero.
Don't spend the $3.95 - just get Patient Zero
I have no idea. I haven't read the print version.
Joe's really the only character in the book. As it should be.
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.
