    Meet Jonathan Quinn: a freelance operative with a take-no-prisoners style and the heart of a loner. His job? Professional "cleaner". Nothing too violent, just disposing of bodies. But his latest assignment will change everything. The job seemed simple enough: investigating a suspicious case of arson. But when a dead body turns up, and Quinn's handlers at "the Office" turn strangely silent, he knows he's in over his head. With only a handful of clues, Quinn struggles to find out why someone wants him dead.

    Overall

    I should have known by the comparison to the TV. show "Alias" that I was going to dislike this book but it looked like fun. It wasn't.

    It is, however, unoriginal; the Cleaner in Le Femme Nikita is far more interesting. And it is disappointingly predictable; the twists and turns were less like a roller coaster ride and more like an uncomfortable get-away in the back of a jalopy Ford on a pot-holed road.

    I gave it a chance and listened to it through the end but I couldn't wait for it to be over. It was one eye-rolling-you've-got-to-be-kidding-me moment after another. I'm dousing myself with Le Carre as an antidote.

    The production value, however, is excellent. Scott Brick is a reliable and consistent reader.
