doesn't really add anything

the store is short. would have been better if it was added in to the main book, not just a side note. not worth the money I payed for it.

Not a bad book but what a terrible narrator

The book was too bad, not the best I've read, but not the worst either. The narrator, however, was awful. Her voice was so hard that all the characters sounded perpetually pissed off.

Too short. Want to hear more.

Good story but Bahni Turpin’s narration made it happen. Buying more books that she narrated.

Worth a listen.

Short listen with good narration. Provides a little back story for the battle that happened in Detroit. I still feel it leaves some questions unanswered, but it helps.

Pulling the wool off the whole picture

While not entire critical to the story of grayson; it does ultimately reveals the how's and why's of the ghettos are so dangerous.

meh, it was ok, didn't really add anything.

you can see and predict the plot of the story pretty easily throughout. already knowing for the most part what the characters or character is going to do. doesn't add a whole lot to the overall story other than it's trying to make you feel bad for the welfare rats and of course the usual trope of big government is evil and anybody that joins is a mindless drone, and only a few mindless drones are capable of seeing the "truth ."

" Death funnels."

(Format : Audiobook)
mother fairly short glimpse into the usually unseen parts of the Frontline world created by Marko Kloos, this time as told by one of the earthbound peacekeeper force, Corporal Jackson. She cares for the eight members of the squad under her command, even if they are newbies. And she finds the renowned Detroit riots with the resultant deaths, hard to justify. But she does her job, even when circumstances suggest that there is no way out ...
Bahni Turpin convincingly voices the young corporal, with a clear and firm, but very pleasant reading. As usual, Kloos' stories feel so realistic, they hold a tension to the very end.
A good extra edition to the series.

Was a good short story

I wish I didn’t accidentally skip this and read ahead, but it was everything a short story spin-off should be

interesting enough to stand on it's own but isn't important enough to be necessary.
