Wonderfully written and addicting, this book will command your interest in the first chapter and keep it until the last page. Quinn fans will be delighted to learn about their hero before he was their hero, and new readers can look forward to the story of a cop who jumped in a little over his head.
I can't express how highly I recommend BECOMING QUINN; like all the Quinn novels, it's fast-paced and thrilling, and simply excellent. It's the beginning of it all, the beginning of Jonathan Quinn, the beginning of one of the best protagonists I've ever met - and I've met quite a few!
Becoming Quinn, although it's only a novella, is probably my most favorite of the Quinn books. I say this with some reservation since I really do love all of Brett's books, but in Becoming Quinn we see a side of Quinn we usually wouldn't see. We find a young man struggling to become a good cop. A cop torn between doing what duty tells him to do, or following his instincts when he knows his "gut feeling" won't be believed by his superiors without solid proof. As we follow Quinn on his quest to find the truth, we find a believable character. One that we can sympathize with and relate to. It's a wonderful story & gives the reader insight on how Quinn, well, became Quinn. I really felt for this character and the choices he has to make. And the ending, well, I can only say that I didn't expect to have the reaction that I did. :)
If you haven't read Becoming Quinn, you should. It's a marvelous novella!
An excellent story, long enough to get you where you want to be but without dragging you through all the details you might have picked up in the previous books in the series. Well worth the time spent to learn about one of my favorite characters.
It's obvious from the first few pages that Battles is a wonderful author. He skilfully introduces two main characters and points of view, giving the reader an insight into both characters and their very different worlds - worlds that end up intersecting in a dramatic and deadly fashion.
I really enjoyed the voice of both protagonists, Durrie and rookie cop Jake Oliver, who is known to readers of the series as Jonathan Quinn, the cleaner.
There was great characterisation coupled with action and intrigue -- a book I'd highly recommend to all readers who like a good crime or thriller novel with interesting characters.
Becoming Quinn is an incredibly strong entry into Quinn's world, but I also get the feeling that if you'd read the rest of the series first you'd appreciate this prequel even more!
Although this is labelled a novella, I know authors whose full-length work doesn't stretch much further than the 57,000 words of this tale. Battles uses the form to its best advantage, keeping the story tight and the pace rapid, while still rounding out and developing his characters. Great fun and highly recommended.

A slapdash and unsatisfying toss-off of a novel. Little real action and some real stretches, like having a professional killer knock the cell phone out of his victim's grasp, but... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Doctor Bob
