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.

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!
I liked this story. Lots of action, good character-building and, Scott Brick! What could be better.
Myst/thrillers, some contemporary and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
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.
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.
mystery, suspense, character development, plot development, glad I chose this as the first Jonathan Quinn book to listen to!
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.
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!
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.
