“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.
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.
