Quinn is a contract "cleaner"..that is, someone who mops up for shadowy government or other organizations after a targeted assassination. He and his team take care of body disposal to wrap up the operation. Through the various novels, we've seen Quinn's history and his growing team -- all the works have been meat and potatoes fare, easy to ready, reasonable character development, decent stories and plotlines. You have to overlook the sometimes bad writing and questionable technical details (Quinn has a computer hacker on his team that can beat any system seen so far!), but it's not for deep, thoughtful reading.
This installment is a typical Quinn story in many respects -- at this point, Quinn is semi-retired and his duties (and name/reputation) have been assumed by his protege, Nate. Quinn is off hanging out with his lover, Orlando, while Nate takes on a new assignment. This new assignment is nothing but a setup by a vengeful past target who wasn't killed in the operation). Thus, Nate disappears and Quinn returns to the scene to find him.
The action and plotlines are reasonably solid and it keeps the reader engaged. My main issue here is the last two pages: a semi-major player is killed and a major player is shot, but you are left completely hanging as to whether the character lives or dies. In fact, the last couple of paragraphs is essentially the character losing conciousness right in mid-sentence! Boom. Done. Really, Mr. Battles? I get cliffhangers but there is a much better way of managing this as an art form rather than "I'll figure it out later". This left a bitter taste in my mouth.
I will read the next one, no doubt. But it doesn't mean I'm impressed.
I recommend reading the series in order.
Be AWARE...the end of this book is a cliffhanger
I would recommend waiting until you can read The Enraged right after reading this book
I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because it was a cliffhanger and I wasn't expecting it!
Having said that...this book was a solid installment in the series
It was, like all the books, full of action
It was an exciting, nail biting and very entertaining
I enjoy Brett Battles more than the Jack Reacher series and about the same as The Gray Man series
This was a quick read full of action-packed scenes. I enjoyed the fast pace, and plan to read others in the series.

This series just keeps getting better and full of more surprises. Another Quinn novel that is hard to put down once you start reading it.Published 3 months ago by JL
A suspenseful action novel at its best. You will enjoy the character development as well as the twist and turns for which Battles is well noted for.
