Publisher's Summary

The meeting place was carefully chosen: an abandoned church in rural Ireland just after dark. For Jonathan Quinn - a freelance operative and professional "cleaner" - the job was only to observe. If his cleanup skills were needed, it would mean things had gone horribly wrong.

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.

    "A poor effort"

    Not well written, contrived plot, entirely implausible, factually naive. Very disappointing. The next book in the series is is significantly better. A "deep cover, off the books" CIA agent is going to put someone under arrest in the US? Really? How would that work? Just one of many absurdities in this poor book.

    "Yes, Yes & YES!"

    This definitely curbed my weekend activities to the mundane like chopping vegetables for soup base ... so I could continue listening to this amazing story. I somehow feel guilty if I actually sit down to listen to an audio book ... like I'm cheating or something or some other psychobabble reason.

    Amazing twists and turns and characters that I could actually care about. Enjoyed the various international as well as west coast settings ... anything other than NYC is a plus in my book.

    I'm so glad Scott Brick is back. The one book without him was not nearly as good to listen to. I live the characters. interesting occupation.

    Any additional comments?

    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.

    An avid listener of books "on tape". Was hooked on our first road trip, now it's my favorite form of entertainment.

    "What a comeback"

    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!

    "Got tired of Narrator's voice."

    Nice continuation of the story, but I just got tired of Mr. Brick's voice. The same inflections sort of put me to sleep.

    "Secrets"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Shadow of Betrayal to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I love to hear the narrator - he is amazing!


    What other book might you compare Shadow of Betrayal to and why?

    The Gray Man Series by Mark Greany. The author developes the characters very well and are similar in both


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Drury saved Jake at the car and killing the woman before she could do in Jake.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I liked the backbone that Jake had while in captivity.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm excited to continue with the Series.
