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.

    Any additional comments?

    I'm pretty stingy about 5 star reviews ... However, if you like books of this genre as well as Brett Battles and his protagonist Quinn, you'll really like "Becoming Quinn". Please don't be put off by the fact that this is a prequel or rather short for an unabridged book - I think this is one of Battle's finest books.

    "Didn't expect the Ending!"

    I always enjoy a mystery that I haven't figured out until the end. And again, I would listen to anything narrated by Scott Brick. He has such a sexy voice!! love him.

    "Becoming a reader of Bret Battles"

    I found this quite boring in parts. But I will try something else by him as I did like the main character. This is a beginning story and sometimes it is not needed, a good author will rely on the reader to read between the lines and flesh out their own "beginning story".

    "A Great Origins Story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Becoming Quinn to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jake. Because we see him as he grows up and becomes Quinn


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    All Scott's performances are amazing


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Becoming Quinn is considered to be the origin story for the Jonathan Quinn series of thrillers by best-selling and award-winning author Brett Battles and the audiobook is performed by the great Scott Brick. As you may probably remember, I am a big fan of Mr. Battles‘s , but until last week I didn’t listened to this thrilling prequel and now I’m glad that I did…

    The story in Becoming Quinn follows rookie cop Jake Oliver as he tries to investigate, unauthorized and on its own, a suspicious fire in which a man died, but not because of his burns. Jake has no right to delve into this matter, but his curiosity gets the better of him and after poking in the wrong places, strange things begin to happen. I will not give away too much of the plot because it is so well written and thought out and I’d prefer for you to discover it yourself.

    If you are a Quinn fan and you didn’t read or listened to this book yet, you have to give it a try. This is how Jonathan Quinn was born, here is where we meet for the first time legendary figures from the Quinn series and this feels more like a mystery, combined with police procedural than a classic thriller. I really enjoyed discovering how Brett Battles imagined Quinn‘s character arc and how the 22 years old rookie evolves and becomes Jonathan Quinn.

    Just like with any other adventure by Brett Battles, Becoming Quinn is fast, gripping, interesting, filled with action, tense moments and for me it was unputdownable.

    Scott Brick, who is ”the voice of Quinn” in my head brings, once more, all the characters to life with passion and attention. There are no strange accents or too many voices for him to work with, but it’s crystal clear that he loves this series and that he enjoys very much performing Quinn‘s adventures for us audiobooks fans…

    I said it before, many times, and I’ll say it again, Scott Brick is one of the most respected narrators in the Audiobook Industry and he deserves it without a doubt…

    This audiobook was a treat for me because is part of one of my favourites series, it is written by one of my favourites authors an it is delivered by one of my top 3 favourites narrators…

    "Thoroughly enjoyed this; good story!"
    Would you listen to Becoming Quinn again? Why?

    Probably would listen again to catch anything I may have missed the first go-around


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I did have to pay attention, but that added to the 'draw you in' quotient


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott Brick is one of my favorite narrators


    Any additional comments?

    This is my first book from Brett Battles; I will definitely follow his work in the future

    Good story with great narration has convinced me to never read a book again. Scott Brick is my favorite male narrator he makes fiction realistic! This is a good story, one I would never read again but will listen to again!
