The town of Pine Deep is where my first three novels were set: GHOST ROAD BLUES, DEAD MAN'S SONG and BAD MOON RISING. The story you just read takes place about five years after the events in the last book.
Joe Ledger is the start of his own series. PATIENT ZERO is the first, followed by THE DRAGON FACTORY, THE KING OF PLAGUES, ASSASSIN'S CODE (April 2012) and EXTINCTION MACHINE.
Hope you enjoy!
