Mila Voss is dead. That’s what the team hired to terminate her had reported, and that’s how her file had been marked. Dead. Six years now. So why did she suddenly show up on a hotel’s security camera in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania? Those who’d paid for her elimination are more than a little curious.
One person should know what happened—Jonathan Quinn, one of the best cleaners in the business, the man who’d been tasked with the disposal of her body. Only Quinn isn’t exactly easy to get ahold of these days, and he may not be willing to share the answer.

Again this book exceeded my expectations. Battles does a great job of creating a new and interesting story line.
I absolutely love every book in the Quinn series so far. I am excited to drive to work and hope every day thanks to them.
Only thing to add to my last review is that I start listening to these stories and can hardly bear to stop.
The Jonathan Quinn series keeps humming right along. As ever, The Destroyed is a great action story with interesting characters. This was near impossible to put down until I read the last page.
The story delves into a subject I would rather think was not even remotely factual. The ethics of people who clean up the crime scene to remove all evidence of clandestine murder. I listened to the story for Scott Brick's excellent narration. He can bring any story to life.
Tell us about yourself!
Brett Battles does it again. Cleaning up crime scenes, closing their loose ends, and a prequel created a need/opportunity for Jonathan Quinn to do something different.
Quinn has retreated from civilization and finds respite doing the basics. Then Mila Voss, a job he had supposedly cleaned, shows up on a security feed. Everyone involved in the job is under scrutiny. Associates find Quinn and everyone works to sort out the mess. It is not, of course, a straightforward task.
Job completed, they all return to their current lives, and we await the next chapter.
Scott Brick is the perfect narrator for this series.
The continuity from book one and book two. This book keeps the characters real and exciting.
This was the first Brett Battles book for me, and it was very good. If you are a fan of Lee Child, DeMille or some of Ludlum's excellent early work, I am sure you will like The Destroyed. I am looking forward to Battle's other work. As usual Scott Brick is fantastic as the narrator.
