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.

    "A Well Done and Interesting Story"
    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.

    "Amazing! Very well done."

    I am new to this series, having only heard this one and the last book, but it is very cool. I will look forward to see how the series plays out. But the writer knows what he is doing.

    "Intricate, engaging and excellent"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I just recommended it to a friend with like interests.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked both Jake as well as Doury (sic). They were well drawn and Mr. Brick made them come alive.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    I found this book (prequel to the author's "Cleaner" series) when I looked up Scott Brick's narrated books. So I tried it because of him and the story line. Mr. Brick has few equals when it comes to voice acting, and he feels like a good friend at this point, since he's always my first choice for audio books.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I like the book title of Becoming Quinn.

    "Good book with lots of surprises"

    I really enjoyed this book. I have not read any books from this author before. Bought it on Audible recommendation and it is well worth the money.

    "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…
