get The Missing Files instead

Any additional comments?

The Missing Files has this story plus four others, Don't do like I did and waste the money to buy all of them seperate, then the compilation.

Wish Material Witness was longer in Matetial

Excellent novella! I enjoyed the plot line, unfortunately when the action got started the book was over. :(
I knew this was a short one, and didn’t realize how much it would disappoint me to have it end quickly. Gotta stick with the full length Ledger’s to get my fill! To exciting a character to edit!
Pro: Great listen Con: Too Short.

I may have to read Pine Deep

What did you love best about Material Witness?

I love the fact that all of these "Joe Ledger" stories blend. I actually had to go back and write a timeline, including all of the shorts, so I could better follow everything. Material Witness happens early in the series. Follows Zero Tolerance.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character is always Joe. Does anyone say anything else?

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Moved me? Not emotionally in the way you'd think. Creeped me out? Yeah, Jonathan did that to me in this one.

Mayberry porter knockout

Outstanding voice and performance by this dynamic duo. The characters are brilliant and the story moves and will not disappoint. I enjoy the crossover too.

This story answers a lingering question...

Where does Material Witness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I enjoyed this short story about Ledger because it brought a dangling thread from "Patient Zero" in for a snip, and did it in in a fast moving and descriptive way. It also tried to develop a few more team members for Joe's team. Alas...

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I should have anticipated the ending, but I didn't. The end leaves a cliffhanger that is hopefully taken up in one of the many later novels that I look forward to listening to.

What does Ray Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Ray Porter's performance has developed the character of Joe Ledger nearly as much as Johnathan Mayberry. His performance is consistent with each character and I am attached to his characterizations after only two books and a short story.

it caught my attention

it started off confusing for me as I didn't know what was really going on but quickly explained and the ending was a great hook. I am looking forward to the main event !

Short stories are not working for me.

Just another way of making money and we buy into it. I could of skipped this without loosing any place in the series.
