    From the author of The Power of One comes an inspiring human drama of three lives brought together and changed forever by the extraordinary events of recent history. Inspired by real events, Bryce Courtenay's new novel tells the story of three people from vastly differing backgrounds. All they have in common is a tough beginning in life.

    Prsilla says: "And a Cast of Thousands!"
    "Wonderful story with factual settings."
    Overall

    I was enthralled with this audiobook, especially with the historical facts of the Korean War, some facts of China where I have worked (and ate dog) and Hong Kong with similarities to Malaysia (how to carry one's purse securely) where I have worked also. I found myself unsatisfied with the narrative to the extent I was looking up Tasmania and "King's Island" in the web to further my understanding of the story.
    The characters are a little "true blue" but the tale certainly carries it's heroes to the finish line in true heroic style.

    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.

    Bernie says: "excellent from start to finish"
    "The Cleaner was Bond-like"
    Overall

    This very fast moving story was following the heroic character to save the world from a deadly plot by devious characters. The involvement of former mentor and his total psychotic behaviour s a little hard to swallow. Many years hiding out to hide the fact of his faked death does not seem plausible at all.
    Like both books I ahve audio'd I listened to it twice and picked up details that were missed first time around. Enjoyed the listen.
    Narrators voices helped a lot.

    Tanya Bigelow was a solemn little girl when Dr. Alex Delaware successfully treated her obsessive-compulsive symptoms. Now, at 19, Patty Bigelow, Tanya's aunt and adoptive mother, has made a deathbed confession of murder and urged the young woman to seek Delaware's help.

    Joan says: "It's a Sad Day When..."
    "Obsession"
    Overall

    I found this book very interesting although a little hard to follow on the first listen so I went through it twice. I found the narrator very interesting with his many voices depicting different characters in this rather playlike written book.
    Exciting finish to a rather tame investigation.
