Being familiar with Brett Battles' Jonathan Quinn series, I had high expectations for Little Girl Gone. In his previous books (The Cleaner, The Deceived and Shadow of Betrayal), Battles built suspenseful plots based on intriguing characters, exotic locations and fast-moving action. Little Girl Gone lives up to Battles' reputation and introduces a new lead character (Logan Harper) who has plenty of potential as the foundation for a new series.

As Little Girl Gone begins, Harper stumbles into an attempted murder, and rescues an old family friend. However, rather than being a simple robbery-gone-wrong, this incident proves to have far-reaching ties to international business and politics. A girl's life hangs in the balance as Harper tries to find out why thugs would be interested in the granddaughter of a Burmese immigrant. Harper's search for information takes him half way around the world, and pairs him with some interesting partners in his search for the truth... and for the girl.
.
Once I began reading Little Girl Gone, I found the book difficult to put down. The fast-paced action pulled me along, and I continually wanted to read just a little more to find out what happens next. Like in his other books, Battles' writing style in Little Girl Gone creates questions in the reader's mind that beg for answers...and Battles does not disappoint. Battles moves the plot along with answers to questions that make sense without being predictable, and all the while building the suspense. The attention paid to details makes the places and action feel real. As Logan Harper's investigation leads him through Los Angeles to Thailand, the detailed descriptions paint realistic locations, and Battles' stories feel like a world tour.

Little Girl Gone is an excellent read, and I'm looking forward to future episodes in a series of Logan Harper books soon.

It's not often one gets a chance to suspend personal reality while urgently travelling to various locales, including Thailand, in desperate search for a missing girl. Still rarer is the opportunity to become enlightened to some of the heart-breaking atrocities being done in the name of a government's narcissistic hold on power, as is the case now with Myanmar, formerly (and lovingly) known as Burma. It takes a talented and detailed writer as Brett Battles to bring all of it together in a thrilling seat-of-the-pants adventure as his deceptively understated hero Logan Harper pulls out every resource at his disposal to get to the core of the problems presented to him.

This was a book that was impossible to put down - so make sure you have enough uninterrupted time before you open it.

In "Little Girl Gone", Brett Battles has once again captured the essence of his characters and brought them to life in a well told compelling story. Logan Harper is quickly drawn into a dramatic scene in Chapter one while walking into what appeared to be a robbery. He quickly finds out that things are not always what they seem.

Logan makes a promise and sets off on a journey to find a missing young lady that takes him from California all the way to Thailand. Throughout this journey he encounters many interesting characters. Some are more helpful than others.
Rich with culture the plot has many twists and turns as Logan keeps his California father and old cronies informed of progress in his quest to rescue the missing girl.

I first ran across Brett Battles books last year when I purchased "The Cleaner" on a whim, while walking to the checkout counter of the book store, the cover was and eye catcher. I was quickly drawn into the characters and their stories and soon went in search of everything else Jonathan Quinn I could find. Now with a new cast and new adventures I am anxiously awaiting Logan Harper's next adventure.

This was a great read, It was quick, the action flowed well it had good elements of mystery and heroism it was compelling with good resolution. Quinn fans will quickly become Harper fans. I highly recommend this for mystery action fans.

This could have been the subtitle for this book. I like Brett Battles, enjoy the Jonathon Quinn series a lot. In this book he starts out with strong character development and an immediately likable Logan Harper. He reintroduces and old friend in this book which was a nice surprise. Harper identifies the bad guys and literally the next three quarters of the book (on a kindle from about 30% into the book until about 83% into the book) is a series of chases. Literally by plane,truck, boat, train and car. Literally. By then I didn't even care if they caught them. Unreal. Very frustrating. It dragged the story line to a complete halt for me. When it finally ended? Not worth the wait.

I have a lot of respect for Mr. Battles for pricing his selections lower than the paperbacks. I enjoyed his short story "A Perfect Gentleman" and was looking forward to reading this novel. After a promising start, I was repeatedly assailed by plot contrivances that strained and finally destroyed my capacity for suspension of disbelief. In full honesty, I was unable to finish the book so please keep that in mind.

---Spoiler Warning---

The following issues were what began my disillusionment with this novel.

- The bad guys were able to afford to employ up to a dozen agents to keep tabs on this one girl, some of them for several months, but they could not employ an actual agent to move in with her, but instead hired some petty larcenist whom they apparently picked at random to move in with the target. This appeared to be purely for the purpose of allowing this larcenist to pass on information necessary for the furtherance of the plot.

- Why they needed 1 roommate, 1 fake boyfriend, and 2 guys next door for several months, just to watch and then kidnap the daughter of some revolutionary is unclear. To be fair, perhaps the last third of the novel explains it. If the goal was kidnapping, couldn't two guys handle it without the months of prepwork? This was some girl going to college, not the president's daughter.

- The main character's dad apparently knows some retired Vietnam Vets. These vets have thus far, provided security for the main character, remote bodyguard services for a witness in another city, jail services for a couple of baddies the hero beat up, and contacts with an information broker in Thailand, all apparently at no charge. Seriously, where do some retired vietnam vets keep prisoners? Aren't they worried about kidnapping charges?
