Meet Jake Oliver. The day will come when he's one of the best cleaners in the business, a man skilled at making bodies disappear. At the moment, however, he's a 22 year old rookie cop, unaware his life is about to change. In a burning barn a body is found--and the fire isn't the cause of death. The detectives working the case have a pretty good idea about what went down. But Officer Oliver thinks it's something else entirely, and pursues a truth others would prefer remain hidden - others who will go to extreme lengths to keep him quiet.

Amazing prequel. SMF weaves all the elements together in a race to the end of the best ZA (hell, best series period) story.
Peppered with his trademark hilarious dialogue and teeth-clenching tension, SMF gives us another group of soldiers to (almost) want to be and definitely want to be with after the world ends. RC Bray brings it all to life brilliantly.
Thanks again guys for a story I can listen to over and over. Bring on Cataclysm!

No one knows exactly when it began or where it originated. A terrifying new plague is spreading like wildfire across the country, striking cities one by one: Boston, Detroit, Seattle. The doctors call it Draco Incendia Trychophyton. To everyone else it's Dragonscale, a highly contagious, deadly spore that marks its hosts with beautiful black and gold marks across their bodies - before causing them to burst into flames. Millions are infected; blazes erupt everywhere. There is no antidote. No one is safe.

The USS Memphis, a dilapidated submarine that should have been mothballed decades ago, has been given one last mission by the newly elected president. The task: To sneak illegally into Russia's coastal waters and recon the leaking nuclear fuel containers hidden on the floor of the Arctic Ocean. More than just an environmental nightmare, this radioactive burial ground houses enough nuclear capability to destroy most of America's major cities.

I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. The story takes place all over the globe but doesn't make you feel like that is being done as window dressing to a sagging story. I found myself alternately hating and liking the characters which pleased me immensely.
The narration is spot-on.
Thank you both for a wonderful story. I'm

I cannot recommend this book series highly enough. It is endlessly surprising with parts that make me so tense I have to stop the audio and pull myself together. The characters are wonderful and always growing and changing.
R. C. Bray is absolutely my favorite narrator. He brings the characters alive. Don't miss this one!

John Maddox Roberts takes listeners back to a Rome filled with violence and evil. Vicious gangs ruled the streets of Crassus and Pompey, routinely preying on plebeian and patrician alike. So the garroting of a lowly ex-slave and the disembowelment of a foreign merchant in the dangerous Subura district seemed of little consequence to the Roman hierarchy.

Shattered by the surprise attack at Pearl Harbor, the U.S. is rebuilding its fleet while the badly damaged Submarine Division Seven holds the line against the Japanese Navy. The loss of even one more submarine could be devastating - and every enemy ship that slips through means more lives lost. But Lieutenant Commander Jack Tremain is determined to whip into shape a boat that's returned from a hellish patrol and make the Japanese pay - even if this is his last mission ever.
