Patient Zero
Joe Ledger Series, Book 1
Jonathan Mayberry

What do you do when you have an outbreak of Zombies that starts in Afghanistan and then erupts in the US?

What top-secret team do you turn to to solve the problem?

Who do you turn to to run that team, given that the organization is run by a man with steel nerves and unlimited funds?

What do you do when you discover there are traitors within the ranks of thie organization and the primary covert action team?

Jonathan Mayberry answers these questions in a book that spans over 100 chapters. Backstabbing, unknown traitors within the ranks of the good guys and bad guys both, and heroes that are human doing the best they can against the threat all form a part of this new twist on the zombie genre.

I listened to this book on my iPad whilst painting up  a couple of English Civil War cavalry regiments. The blasted thing would NOT transfer over from iTunes to my iPad because Apple has done such a poor job with iTunes and Windows (of any flavor). The Digital Rights Management of the WMA format didn’t help either. Finally I had to download Splashtop 2 from the App Store so I could play the audios on my computer and listen to them on my iPad using this remote control software. I tried Logmein first but the only way to get audio from them was to buy the Pro edition. Not gonna do it, wouldn’t be prudent….

I enjoyed this book immensely and would have no hesitation in suggesting someone buy it or (like I did) get it from the local library as  digital download.

About the author

Michael Cannon

I have been wargaming as long as I can remember. I met my wife when I was 14 and had been gaming long before that so that should give you an indication as to how long it has been. One of the first games I owned was Anzio by Avalon Hill. I drove over to the hobby shop in the snow to pick it up as I finally had the money to get something! I can remember playing with Airfix figures and Roco tanks back in the 6th grade and before.
