Over-read, as in Over-acted. The book was ok, but I truly struggled with Mr. Brick's, William Shatner-esque reading of it. I will not buy any more of the books read by this person. Did anyone listen to this reading before it was put out for sale?
I like an action/mystery book or movie to move along and not get hung up on details. If I could have edited this book, I would have cut out several chapters and had the central plot move more directly.
Say something about yourself!
I read this based on the prequel. The main character Jonathan Quinn is a cleaner. His job is to finishing jobs, usually hits, which were done wrong and hiding bodies and evidence. Here he is not doing much cleaning. He is running for his life and solving a mystery. That was a slight disappointment. Cleaning was the hook for me in the prequel.
This book does have a bad ass woman, Orlando. She does not take prisoners and has many skills and resourceful with no problem with killing. She needs to be a regular in he book. She made a splash of a psychopath.
Nate, Quinn's protegee, is very low key. His greatest contribution in the book is aggravating Quinn. Whatever he is told not to do, he will run off to do it.
You must pay attention in this book. The action starts with Nate and Quinn running for their lives. From that action, many suspects are considered as possible people who ordered the hit, the traitor of the organization or the mad men behind the plan to commit genocide.
I had to take a few seconds to review the relationships. Everyone was considered for each atrocity with really good logic.
I am going to read the next book in hopes that Quinn becomes the cleaner from the prequel.
Like a roller coaster of plot's twist and turns, up and downs with final answers arriving in the last few monitors. A good read or listen. Narrator is good with accents and speech styles. Go for it.
The plot moved along, twisting and weaving elements from past books and characters, while continuously driving towards a never predictable end. Scott Brick masters the narrative with perfection. A completely compelling thriller
Scott Brick was great as usual. Could make a phone book entertaining. Happy to say, this wasn't a phone book. New author to me, and it was great. On to book two now.
Before I started this highly recommended Jonathan Quinn series, I decided to listen to Brett Battle's novella, Becoming Quinn, first. The decision made the first book of his series even more exciting. I'm hooked, and I know you will be too! Try it. You might just like it...a lot!
