Becoming Quinn: Jonathan Quinn Series Prequel | [Brett Battles]

Becoming Quinn: Jonathan Quinn Series Prequel

Meet Jake Oliver. The day will come when he's one of the best cleaners in the business, a man skilled at making bodies disappear. At the moment, however, he's a 22 year old rookie cop, unaware his life is about to change. In a burning barn a body is found--and the fire isn't the cause of death. The detectives working the case have a pretty good idea about what went down. But Officer Oliver thinks it's something else entirely, and pursues a truth others would prefer remain hidden - others who will go to extreme lengths to keep him quiet.

    "Quinn explained"

    I usually don't like books from series that go back in time because I feel like I know the ending. This one was different. It helped to gain greater insight into the main character.

    "Well done."

    The best Quinn since "The Cleaner" (Book 1).
    A great story line.
    Narration is good enough, would prefer Dick Hill.

    "Another Excellent Assassin Series!"

    Was pleasantly surprised. My first Brett Battles book. Looking forward to another excellent assassin series! Looking at the reviews of the Jonathan Quinn series, I'm glad I have this backdrop heading into the collection.

    "Becoming Quinn"

    Great read and a perfect intro to the rest of the Quinn novels! I have read several before this introduction and it's great knowing how he started. Would recommend highly!

    "First book for me, it won't be the last !"

    It was a good story but, I like this narrator very much. My only criticism is, it wasn't long enough.

    "Hope there is a sequel"
    What made the experience of listening to Becoming Quinn the most enjoyable?

    Enjoyed the progression of the story. Not sure why the character played so close to the vest, knowing he was out of bound on the force, but made for an interesting story. Can't wait to hear from the character again he his new role.

    "Great book narrated by Scott Brick (groan)"

    Great book. He brought Jonathan Quinn alive as without it turning into a caricature. I know some people actually like Scott Brick but his smarmy, better-than-than-thou voice drives me nuts. I could only take the book in small bits do to the narration, but the story was great.

    "Glad I started with the prequel"

    Now I'm ready to delve into the series. I almost always like Scott Brick's narration (yes, there have been some exceptions), so that's what prompted me to try a new (for me) author. It was a good move.
