It was supposed to be a fun weekend, a celebration of a marriage and growing family. Alan Lindley couldn't have been happier...until his wife Sara disappeared.

Asked by a mutual friend to help look for her, Logan Harper is sure he'd discover a wife who simply wants out of the marriage.

I was lucky enough to be chosen to read & post a review for Brett Battles' newest novel, Every Precious Thing, which is book #2 in his Logan Harper series.

Logan Harper is asked by a family friend, Callie Johnson, a lawyer, to help her locate Sara Lindley. Sara is the wife of a client who disappeared on a weekend getaway in Tijuana, leaving a cryptic note for her husband. With help from his dad, Harp, and some of Harp's friends, they embark on a journey to find out why this woman disappeared,

Brett Battles is just like a carnival juggler. Imagine one of those burly guys with a bare oiled chest, juggling impossible objects in front of a stunned crowd by torchlight. Imagine a chainsaw, a sabre, a fiery club, all flying in air at the same time, and Battles below keeping the whole thing spinning with a confident grin on his face. OK, maybe I’m going overboard with the bare oiled chest image. But my point is this: Brett Battles is a prolific wonder of a writer. He has embraced wholehearte ...more

Logan Harper "knows how to get things done". What a perfect book! Sure there are holes you could drive a truck thru, but who cares? It's a great adventure, the characters are fun, the motley crew who assist Logan (grizzled VietNam vets) are competent and hilarious - what more could you want from a book like this?

Oh, and Brett Battles knows how to write! Clear, concise, descriptive - just enough of everything. I love this author :)
Brad Lamorgese
Every Precious things is another great Logan Harper thriller! Battles does it again with the second installment in this series: it's another exciting trip around the globe. Battles is really hitting his stride with all of his series. One of the best writers today.

This story started out with an exciting premise-Sara Lindley and her husband Alan take a trip across the bridge to Mexico. When Sara loses her purse, in it her passport, Alan is forced to return home without her. He discovers her bags missing from their car. HIs wife has disappeared.
I liked the storyline here, but was somewhat confused about who Logan actually was and what his background was in solving missing person crimes. Again, all in all a good read, but for me, could have been a little le

Brett Battles, one of my favorite authors (for giving me the Jonathan Quinn series) now begins a new series based on the character of Logan Harper. Books like The Cleaner have made me an ardent follower of Battles's novels, however, I do not think this series is of the same caliber as compared to the Quinn series.

This doesn't mean they aren't an enjoyable read. They are. But having read Quinn and as a reader it is inevitable that comparisons are made. Harper is a car mechanic/Quinn a cleaner (of

This is the second book in the Logan Harper series. I did not read the first book, but I did not feel like I was missing anything by reading this one first. This story line stands all on its own without needing prior knowledge of the characters.

The story is about a woman who goes missing under very bizarre circumstances. Everything that happens indicates that she orchestrated her own disappearance, but why is the big question. Enter Logan Harper; his father, Harp; Barney; Dev; and Pep—an unlikel

This book was an unexpectedly good read! It was kind of a sleeper in that I bought it on sale, I thought from Amazon, but apparently not as they do not show it available for Kindle. So I am not sure where I actually got this book. Anyway, I really expected I would get exactly what I paid for. So imagine my surprise that it drew a 4 - star rating from me. Battles' characters are well rounded and draw both empathy as well as compelling the reader's sympathy. The plot is well done, with a few twist ...more

Every time I think I've read Brett Battles best book, I find another great novel. I don't think I have ever read a novel with this kind of plot before and it's just like this author to come up with something else no one has thought to write about.

At first I thought that Alan's wife had found a complicated way to leave her husband. Then throughout the book I couldn't figure out why she would leave her husband and child and be in hiding. This story is so complex, it keeps you guessing who everyone

Every Precious Thing was my introduction to the Brett Battles oeuvre, and when I finished reading it I could easily see why he’s as popular a writer as he is. Battles weaves engaging characters we truly care about into a page-turning story of a woman who leaves a husband and child behind one day and simply disappears. When Logan Harper is asked to help find her or at least find out why she left, he, his dad Harp and a colorful cast of characters take off on what turns out to be a breathless and ...more

It was a good mystery. Was a little confusing at the end of the book and a little slow.
Jay Clement
Pretty good story, but I didn't get into our hero's character. Looking forward to more of the Quinn series, though.
Dan Barbier
Let's start with Suspense-filled and Emotionally-charged. This Logan Harper novel is a very satisfying read, even more so than it's predecessor, Little Girl Gone, which I still loved. Apparently you can improve excellence. I don't know if the Author wants to write another Logan Harper novel with his busy schedule of Jonathan Quinn thrillers, Project Eden series or his new Poe series, but I would welcome it. I will finish with Multi-Layered, every time you open any Brett Battles novel, you get a ...more

I found this to be slow reading. Normally I read like an addict; don't want to put anything down till I learn what happens next. This time I put it down at any and every excuse. It wasn't a bad book, just not my kind. I am character and plot driven and found nothing in any of the characters to grab on to until I had completed more than half the story and then it wasn't the protagonist, it was the villain. I wanted to know what the story was with her. I gave this three stars, but was being a bit ...more
Mary
another great read, a page turner
Richard
Another solid read from Battles. I am not sure if I like this series as much as the Quinn series, but it is good to say the least.. If you like thrillers, action and suspense then give Brett Battles a try. A solid 4.5 stars. I am patiently waiting for the next installment in both series. I am a fan, out of the 10-11 Battles books I have read I have yet to have a bad experience. Thanks for the entertainment Brett, keep up the great writing!

I liked this so much I read late into the night, picked it back up at breakfast, and read straight through. The plot was excellently done. I'll be looking for more Logan Harper books by Brett Battles.
Great story idea, a very emotional end. The wild thing, I think it was perfect for me to be reading it on Memorial Day.

For my Christian friends, there is language and violence (minimum) in the book.
JC
this was my first book in this series and really liked it. I didn't feel like I was missing anything not having read the previous books in the series. Harper is contacted to help a man find his wife after she disappears. Harper suddenly discovers that things aren't as they seem. the book starts out really quickly and doesn't slow down.
Peg
4 stars for entertainment value. Not so different thriller series with good guys including olderts as well as young (60) army vets still in battle mode to take on the bad guys. But they are intelligent stories with plots that I don't feel have been rehashed.
Robbie
Another 5-star book from Brett Battles. He's so talented, I could almost rate his books before I read them. So far, I haven't read one that was less than 5 stars. He's among my top 5 favorite authors. Jim finished this on 12-26-13 and rated it 4.2 stars.
Ray Charbonneau
Generic characters in a generic genre novel. A (small) step below publishable, but OK for a free book. Just when I got rolling along, the author changes POV, and those transitions were clumsy for the most part.
Maya
Logan picks up a new puzzle with this book, and I enjoyed it very much. I particularly like how each chapter corresponds to a perspective in the story. I hope Battles will be writing the next one soon!
melissa
this one was better than the first Logan Harper book. I was able to connect with the characters more and that the story had more layers, if that makes sense....very very well done.
Karen
Brett Battles is such a good storyteller. His tales flow so easily that you slide into the pages and before you know it, an hour of thoroughly enjoyable reading has passed!
Tulara
Another great Battles novel - kept my interest - good read!
Jan
Meh. Not so much. OK -- but....I've definitely read better.
