From the Barry Award-winning author of the Jonathan Quinn series comes Little Girl Gone.
Logan Harper isn't looking for redemption. He just wants to live in peace and forget his troubled past. But one morning his quiet life is upended when he interrupts the attempted murder of his father's best friend Tooney. The next thing Logan knows, he's on his way to Los Angeles, searching for Tooney's missing granddaughter and uncovering a sinister plot connected not only to Tooney's Burmese past, but also to the boardrooms of corporate America.
As the odds stack up against him, Logan must fall back on old skills from the life he'd rather forget. He's made a promise, and the only way to fulfill it is to bring the girl home alive.
Brett Battles does it again with this great new series. It's definitely different from the Jonathan Quinn series (which you should read too), but Logan Harper is an equally thrilling, complex, and interesting character. And also once again, Battles takes us on a thrilling ride across the globe --- all to save a girl. I could not recommend this any more!

Brett Battles is a great writer! His stories keep you involved to the end. I haven't been dissappointed in any of his writings nor have anyone that I have referred him too!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Oh definately! I even listened to this book while doing my house work.
Which character – as performed by Jeff Woodman – was your favorite?
Harp, Logan's dad, was my favorite. Jeff did a great job depicting both father and son even when the chafracters were terse with each other.

This book was really good. The narrator made it even that much better. Great job. The story took place in several locations but kept everything cohesive.

What would have made Little Girl Gone better?
Different narrator & more depth to the characters
Has Little Girl Gone turned you off from other books in this genre?
How did the narrator detract from the book?
It felt amateurish. The scene could be serious or dire but the narrator sounded light hearted.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
I have really enjoyed other works by Brett Battles but I will not pursue the rest of this series.

This book is nothing like his other series. I would like my credit back. Very disappointing read.
I have read the entire Quinn series, and wishing for more, I tried out this alternate book. What a joy, in a different way. Sure, it may not feature silenced pistols as much, but what it does have is incredible storytelling chops. One is immediately taken in by the story and off on an escapist journey, including an appearance of a special character from the Quinn series. It also has emotional resonance and describes how anyone can overcome a wounded past and find redemption through courage, action, and heart. I think that can be said about the author as well. The narration and story are top notch. I just wish for more, or good deals on such books as this one had. Mr. Battles, I would love to know your trade craft and I anticipate new additions to this genre, whether in this series or the Quinn. The new Becoming Quinn is a rare gem.
Brett Battles displays a deft touch with thrillers, linking seemingly disparate elements at just the right time to make the hair stand on end.
This doesn't quite have the punch of the best of the Quinn books but it's still head and shoulders above most of the dross out there.
It seemed to me that there was an awful lot of unimportant information. May have to re-listen in a couple months to find out if I feel differently then. I have enjoyed some of Brett Battles other books.

Would you try another book from Brett Battles and/or Jeff Woodman?
Would you ever listen to anything by Brett Battles again?
Would you listen to another book narrated by Jeff Woodman?
Without the gee whiz voice
Could you see Little Girl Gone being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Any additional comments?
The father was irritating. The delay tactics to ratchet up suspense by Battles were ridiculous. If they told the guy one more time I cant tell you, I was going to scream. The interviewing cop was an idiot.
