Publisher's Summary

Most careers begin with an interview and a handshake. Others require a little something more.

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.

Every identity has an origin. This is Quinn's.

    "Excellent Origin Story"

    I love back stories.How do your heroes become that way? What pressures pushed them into the lives they lead? Battles does an excellent job of creating those pressures that pushed a young man out of his chosen carrer of a policeman into that of being a cleaner.Well done, Mr Battles!

    "Great Prequel!"

    Great narration, Brick was perfect. That voice! Masterful telling of a much needed back story too.

    "Coming of Age"

    I should have listened to this book first, but since I didn't, this gives me an idea of how Quinn evolved. Very intriguing, very detailed. Loved it.

    "Great "Start""

    Story was well performed. Good tension throughout. Interesting to have this as the halfway into the series. Provides great perspective on the beginning. Now that we know, we may never be able to leave!

    "Amazing!!!"

    This series just keeps getting better and better. I thought about listening to this one first or not bothering with this book at all but very glad I followed the order. It answers a lot of questions at just the perfect time, after you think you know the characters. Excellent can't wait for the next one!

    Story
    "Mmmm......."

    Well, I guess maybe even though this is a prequel people liked it more when they were already into the series. Maybe I was expecting too much but for me it was a bit slow and it could have had more content. I'm sure that I probably would have picked up on more if I knew the characters better. Although, it may have been in part too, that Scott Brick is not necessarily my favorite narrator. I will, however, pick another one up in the series if by chance it comes out as a Daily Deal.
