Shadow of Betrayal | [Brett Battles]

Shadow of Betrayal

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.

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.

    Story
    "Wonderfully exciting and intense."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Shadow of Betrayal to be better than the print version?

    Definitely, especially with Scott Brick as the narrator.


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

    Yes. The focus required by Quinn and Nate to find each other in the obscure island was terrific. Once having a tiny piece of information and then continuing to piece the puzzle together. The characters were heroic.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Quinn


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

    I couldnt stop listening, always on the edge of my seat. No laughing or crying, just rooting for the Quinn and his team.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for Brett Battle's next book.

    Story
    "yikes"

    This is,unfortunately, a very lame story, read with more melodrama than it deserves and, in the end, was a major disappointment even as a mindless time filler while driving in rush hour traffic. The last two books that I have listened to that were read by Scott Brick have both been poor listens, I think in part due to the basic story lines being so bad, but also he is trying too hard to give these trite pieces more gravitas than they can handle.

    Audible addict! A friend told me to try this, and it was incredible. I travel for work and this is a great way to make the miles melt away.

    "Love the Cleaner"

    I think Brett Battles has done an incredible job of showing how a professional fixer of problems would act when involved with personal issues. I love the character development he uses here. The dynamic bewteen the characters is phenomenal. I just purchased book four in the series here and can't wait to get started. I hope there are 10 more coming.
