Publisher's Summary

A cleaner’s tasks are simple: get rid of the body so that it will never be found, and make the scene of the kill look like nothing happened.

Rule Number One: Don’t get caught.

With Jonathan Quinn’s career in question, his apprentice Nate has successfully taken on the role of full-fledged cleaner, using Quinn’s name to keep the business working seamlessly in case his boss decides to return.But Nate’s latest job is not what it seems, and he finds himself on the wrong side of a trap.

With Nate suddenly missing, Quinn and his partner Orlando set out to find him, and learn the reasons for Nate’s disappearance are more atrocious than they anticipated.

Battles Runs True to Form: Excellent

Brett Battles never fails to delight. The action keeps moving, the plot is plausible and exciting. Again, this is one for the men or the women. Good 'espionage' stories are hard to come by and all of Battles' books are exceptional. Just buy it! You won't regret it.

Another great story in the Quinn series

I have thoroughly enjoyed the progression of this series, and how the characters have evolved. Starting the novel from a different perspective than what I was anticipating was fantastic, and again Brett has put together an engaging, exciting storyline. The ending is riveting!

Scott Brick is a fantastic narrator as usual, bringing that comfort and familiarity of the characters past with him, and makes listening a pleasure.

I highly recommend this book if you have enjoyed any previous ones in the series, or simply enjoy a look into the sub-culture of the espionage/assassin/hitman genres.

Another unique plot in the series!

As usual, there is a "cleaner" issue and you are immediately drawn into a tense adventure. Nate disappears, Jonathan and Orlando investigate, several other operatives are involved, and the only thing they all have in common is the name of a past job.

New to this episode is a cliffhanger ending. As usual I am eagerly waiting to see what happens next.

Scott Brick has become THE voice for these books.

I love this series!

Great Read

If you could sum up The Collected in three words, what would they be?

Loved the book!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Collected?

The end was unexpected!!

What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I'm a termemdous Brick fan. I have read different genres that I wouldn't have read before just becuase he's the narrator.

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

Yes. The ending was very shocking...I'll leave it at that (No spoilers)

Any additional comments?

Battles and Brick, you can't go wrong!!

So So

Good story but it could have been better. I love this series with its great narrator but most of this audiobook was boring.

quite enjoyable story, if you can ignore one flaw

What did you love best about The Collected?

The performance is great. The story is compelling and holds my interest. It is well worth the listen. However, there is a major flaw. In the middle of the story, four highly trained and highly skilled people who are excellent at spotting and losing a professional tail (among other skills) -- because their lives literally depend upon such skills -- are somehow tailed across the United States and Mexico by someone who is attempting to trail another person for the very first time in her life, without a single one of those four professionals spotting her doing so! This is so ridiculous that it was difficult for me to suspend belief enough to remain immersed in the story at that point. This is sad, because the rest of the story is quite good.

What other book might you compare The Collected to and why?

All the books in the series, because the stories are compelling and well performed.

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

The main character.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

On a technical note (rather than a content one), there were several places in which there is a tiny glitch in the recording, creating either a slight amount of "dead air" or a slight dropout of a word or two. The glitches were definitely recording errors and not performance errors.

Not the best in the series but a solid book

Any additional comments?

Love the characters their loyalty to each other. I also enjoy how Brett Battles incorporates new people to keep the stories fresh. Nate's injuries and survival are getting a little far-fetched, so it is probably time to focus on a different character. Some surprises at the end leave me compelled to download the next book in the series. <br/><br/>As always, Scott Brick's performance is terrific.
