But an assassin hidden in a tree assured just that. And suddenly Quinn had four dead bodies to dispose of and one astounding clue - to a mystery that is about to spin wildly out of control.
Three jobs, no questions. That was the deal Quinn had struck with his client at the Office. Unfortunately for him, Ireland was just the first. Now Quinn, along with his colleague and girlfriend - the lethal Orlando - has a new assignment touched off by the killings in Ireland. Their quarry is a U.N. aide worker named Marion Dupuis who has suddenly disappeared from her assignment in war-torn Africa. When Quinn finally catches a glimpse of her, she quickly flees, frantic and scared. And not alone.
For Quinn the assignment has now changed. Find Marion Dupuis, and the child she is protecting, and keep them from harm. If it were only that easy.
Soon Quinn and Orlando find themselves in a bunker in the California hills, where Quinn will unearth a horrifying plot that is about to reach stage critical for a gathering of world leaders - and an act of terror more cunning, and more insidious, than anyone can guess.
Fast, smart, sleek, and stunning, Shadow of Betrayal is vintage Brett Battles: a gritty, gripping masterpiece of suspense, a thriller that makes the pulse pound--and stirs the heart as well.

I'm definitely a Jonathan Quinn fan and I'll continue this series BUT this installment is s-l-o-w due to unnecessary intricacies. It's not the expected Battles' thriller. Scott Brick is wonderful as always but perhaps a faster narration rate would have helped.
By the way...how many times do we need to be directed to Quinn's guilt about Nathan's injury...we get it...to the point of boredom.
Love this guys performance
Excellent. Didn't figure out who the bad guy, love when I can't.
Audible allows me to fill my mind with something so much better than TV.
Having listen the previous book only to keep up this one was worth it. As the first book this too was exciting from beginning to end. A tribute not only to Brett Battled but standing ovation to Scott Brick for a performance well done.
When the audio has sounds of someone trying to control their mucous, sniffling and snorting in chapter 14 right after they checked the hotel room after the chase.
The audio should be re-recorded. The story-line is fantastic BUT!
Yes, I love to hear the narrator - he is amazing!
The Gray Man Series by Mark Greany. The author developes the characters very well and are similar in both
When Drury saved Jake at the car and killing the woman before she could do in Jake.
I liked the backbone that Jake had while in captivity.
I'm excited to continue with the Series.
listening from 1st to last chapter, without stopping. Couldn't stop. Super exciting, twists and intriguing angles. I knew Nate would pass muster. Great listen
These books are always interesting and keep you wanting more. It's fiction people it's OK for the bullets to be flying and our hero is untouched.
Good mysteries, good character development, awesome narrator, and in all of these stories a lot of the bad guys really 'get theirs' - and I like that!!!
Avid audio book listener with over 1600 books in my library!
I really enjoyed this one! The story line was well written and Scott Brick is back so the listen was much more enjoyable. I really like the cast of characters, looking forward to the rest of the series!!
