"...except for the exception."
And plot bits from past book (won't spoil anything)are brought up and reiterated and angst-ed over ad nauseum... OK, OK, we get it!!
I'm done w/this series.
I was lucky enough to have received an advanced reader's copy of Brett Battles latest Jonathan Quinn book. I was worried at first, that I had not first read the two previous books in the series before sitting down to read this one. To my pleasant surprise, it was not a problem. The author does a wonderful job of catching up the reader without droning on about details insignificant to the plot at hand. And what...more
Shadow of Betrayal had me hooked from the very beginning. It starts with action and never lets up. I kept feeling like I'd been reading an episode of Fox's show 24. I'm a HUGE fan of the show, so there's no surprise I loved this book! I found myself wanting to read more and more - and I wanted to know how the different story lines we...more

Jonathan Quinn is a professional "cleaner" who has the responsibility for cleaning a crime scene after the fact so that there are no traces of evidence. For some time, his assignments have come from a group known as "the Office". Although he is anxious to break their association, he is on the wrong side of an IOU. In exchange for some serious help from the Office, he has agreed to perform three jobs for the...more
I liked how Quinn was always on the verge of firing Nate b/c he was missing a foot, Orlando and Quinn's banter and the way the author tried so hard to pepper the book w/topical references (new Yankee stadium! housing crisis! la...more
What we have here is a principled cleaner: you know, the guy that cleans up after grissly killings. (Well, I did say it is an unlikely hero). He reminds us of Eisler's John Rain. The man has a stric...more

Jonathan Quinn is a master at what he does and he's started out on his own. In his business trust and honor are everything. Since this is the third book in the series and Battles intentionally doesn't tell us how Quinn was maneuvered into agreeing to "3 jobs, no questions" which would be a story in itself. It's one of those contract terms that will clearly prove problem...more
Another fast-paced suspense thriller from Battles. Glad I read The Cleaner and The Deceived before reading this latest - I like to know all of the details. The backstory of Quinn's team begins with the first book in the series and develops through all three titles published so far. This book could be read on its own, but rationale for some of the action would be missing or weakened.
This reader was hooked from page one and found the book hard to put down. Battles keeps the suspense moving from o...more

Soldiers come to the orphanage looking for a 5 year old child with Down Syndrom, named Iris. Marion has found that children with special needs have been di...more
This was a wonderful, very exciting, page-turner story about a "cleaner" sent on a "no questions" mission with many twists and turns that involved a couple of agencies working against each other. The main plot in this current story has to do with Marion Dupuis and a special child, Iris, who is running from some very unsavory people....more
