Book Description

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Typical Quinn but AWFUL Ending -- PLOT DISCUSSION HERE December 12, 2012
By Mike P.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read each and every Quinn novel and have enjoyed them all, mostly.

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.

Brett Battles has out done his self with COLLECTED.  I have read all of the Quinn series and they were all 5 stars reviews.  This book was so exciting If it had not been midnight I would have finished reading it in one sitting.  Nate has been mistaken for Quinn and set up and captured along with four other men.  Quinn is trying to find him and Nate is plotting his escape.  An exciting story that will keep you waiting for the next event.   I am now waiting for the next Quinn book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best one yet! October 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of the Jonathan Quinn series - I have read every single one and was waiting for this latest Quinn book to come out - but I think this might be the best of all. I downloaded it and read it all today, couldn't put it down. I can never guess what will happen next, and just when I think I can predict what a character will do, Battles reveals another side of their personality, and I'm pulled even deeper into the story and their world. I love the humor and wit that runs throughout the dialogue, and the subtle suggestions of backstory that gives the action more impact. Having to patiently wait for the next book in the series will be tough!

A friend who has the same taste in action novels recommended this author. First time read and I was engrossed from start to finish. Pleasant surprise to find a book for a very reasonable price that keeps you going on every sitting until the finish

4.0 out of 5 stars Be Aware ....Audiobook Review September 29, 2013
Format:Paperback
The Collected is the 6th book in a series about Jonathan Quinn.
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

Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Collected - Brett Battles April 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book quite by accident in the Kindle store and I am SO glad I did!!! As an avid reader, it has been years since I found an author who developed their characters so well that I truly got to know them and cared about them! The best part of this book was that it set me on the edge of my seat right from the start and Mr. Battles didn't let me off of it until the end of the book! As soon as I finished this one, I made a list of every one of his books. I just finished the last of the Jonathan Quinn series (The Deceived is awesome and has more twists and turns than a roller coaster!) and began another of his books. I definitely will not read anything else until I have worked my way thru all of his books and then I will have to not so patiently wait for more books to come out. Brett Battles is the kind of author that I promise you will want to tell other people about!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Thriller October 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nate is Quinn's protege as a cleaner - those who remove all traces of a dead body after a target has been slain. The first rule in the business is: don't get caught. During Nate's latest mission, everything seems to quickly to wrong. This simple assignment may be part of a larger scheme by unknown persons.

This was a quick read full of action-packed scenes. I enjoyed the fast pace, and plan to read others in the series.
