Publisher's Summary

This sequel to Patient Zero brings Joe Ledger back into action.

Zero Tolerance picks up a few weeks after the close of Maberry’s action-thriller Patient Zero. Dropping back into the world of former Baltimore cop Joe Ledger, the Department of Military Sciences, and flesh-eating zombies, fans of the series will finally see the tying up of a few loose ends.

Good but not worth using your credit, just buy it

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I'd recommend it to fans of the Joe Ledger series but it is too short to waste a credit on.

What about Ray Porter???s performance did you like?

Ray's performance was amazing as usual.

Disappointing

Story too short. Reading his first book sets you up for the series, but this is unfulfilling.

That all I have say about that.

This was a short that tied up the main loose end of Patient Zero. I'm glad that the loose end was not the next book.

I Love These Shorts

Where does Zero Tolerance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Right Up There in the TOP TOP TOP.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Zero Tolerance?

Amira in the caves.

What about Ray Porter’s performance did you like?

Every. Moment.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

No movies. They'd probably put someone stupid like Tom Cruise as Joe and I'd have to vomit.

Any additional comments?

I love the fact that this short ties up Book One.

Buy (don't use credits) to this 45 minute piece . . . 😱

5 is great.
4 is good.
3 is OK.
_________________________________________________
You MUST read the book first. This is really a "last chapter" to "Patient Zero" which is a 3 to 4 star listen -- but this is better than the book as a whole --probably because a lot of action is packed into a short space. _______😱

A wrong approach to selling a series of novels.

What to say about a $3 filler to the next novel in the series? There just isn't anything positive to say about the approach. I bought this one, but it will be my last of Mayberry's production for "money" series. I would rather pay $5 more for the next complete book than be played for addition 45 minutes of stand alone "filler" for $3. The whole approach to milking readers for a few dollars inbetween major books of a series reeks of greed. IMO, of course.

Didn’t finish

I couldn’t even finish. It was too random from the first book. Still love Ray Porter but the story was poorly done.

Great, too short!

Where does Zero Tolerance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love Joe Ledger, his sardonic nature and all the rest. When I can't find another good book or one I bought was not very good, I listen to patient zero. This filled in blanks left from that book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Zero Tolerance?

When he puts the gun to his nemisis.

Which scene was your favorite?

Would be a scene spoiler.

Any additional comments?

I am going to listen again because I was confused why part of his team with a vast amount of weapons couldn't take out the few walkers they encountered. It was dark and the team knew they were hostiles and didn't just take them out. Unless they were eating people, how would they know they were different and be freaked?

GREAT GREAT short novella!

This is a short story that is an immediate follow-up to Patient Zero. I was able to get it free as part of my Audible membership. I would not suggest that you spend $$ or credit for it. Too short. 😊.
