I’ve read all the novels and singles in the Quinn series and have always enjoyed them. This was no exception. This story is #10 in the FLIGHT 12 project. All of the stories read fine as standalones – you might want to read them in order, but it’s not necessary.
The mysterious Flight 12 is alluded to – it’s flying to Rome at midnight, passengers that will be on the flight are relevant to the events unfolding around Quinn and Nate – but the action in this story takes place before the flight.
Quinn, Nate and Daeng are completing a job in NYC when they’re suddenly tasked with a second job. But immediately there’s trouble, and Quinn realizes they need to do more than dispose of a body – they need to find out who made the body dead in the first place.
The only part of the story I didn’t enjoy was when Orlando uses her hacking skills to get some answers – I think because it was a scene that in a full novel would have been drawn out, more time-consuming and more realistic. Here it was basically Orlando snaps her fingers and BAM, we’ve got answers.
Other than that, I really enjoyed the story. I think Quinn is one of the best fictional characters from the past decade and I’m looking forward to the new novel this spring.
I loved it. I'm looking forward to reading other books by this author. However, I do feel cheated. In the Foreward of the book it describes the series as 12 connected books and then gives the following (quoted directly from the book):
"What do all 12 of these passengers have in common? May 12 New York (AP): A Skyway Airlines flight carrying 375 passengers and 13 crew bound for Rome’s Fiumicino airport from New York’s JFK International Airport has disappeared off the radar overnight according to airline spokespersons. Skyway Flight 12 had left New York at 12:00 midnight Monday evening and was said to be operating normally and in good weather conditions. According to sources on the ground, the plane, a Boeing 767, was piloted by an experienced flight crew who issued no alarm of any kind prior to vanishing somewhere over the Atlantic ocean east of Newfoundland. The 767 is said to be a reliable twin engine carrier that’s been in service since 1982 with an excellent safety record. While a catastrophic mechanical failure is presently being investigated, says an FAA spokesman, a criminal event is not being ruled out. Both sea and air rescue crews have been dispatched from the US, Canada, Newfoundland, and Ireland. This is a developing story.
So, thriller fans, it’s time. Fasten your safety belts. Return your seat backs and tray tables to their full upright and locked position. Review the safety information card in your seatback pocket once more before take off. Ready? Here we go! Enjoy the ride on each of the 12 books in the exciting new series where Flight 12 Begins."
That led me to believe that the book would be almost ENTIRELY about the passengers on the Flight. It is NOT. Don't get me wrong. It's a great book. But it seems as though it was a book that had been completely written and then a small postscript thrown in AFTER the author had been contacted about doing this project. That's why I feel cheated. I feel it was a gimmick to get more readers drawn in to their series. Which is okay. IF they had been upfront about it. They also said on the Flight 12 website that it was going to be a limited time thing so you had to get the books while you could since the books might not be around and available much longer. So I bought them when I really couldn't afford to thinking I might not be able to get them and might not find out what happened on the Flight only to find out that the only book that was actually really about the Flight was the last one (other than a tiny blurb in each book which really wouldn't have mattered if you didn't read them and only read the last book)! I ended up paying over $30 for all of the books (a couple were free and some were only $.99) when I could have only spent $2.99 for the last book and still found out everything about the Flight without reading the other 12 books. What a total rip-off!
I am not sure how I feel about whole Flight 12 series, but this story I liked. It stands alone and does not rely on the rest of the series. I was glad to see my favorite characters from the Jonathan Quinn books. The action was fast-paced, and the plot interesting. Until almost the very end, I was not sure how the story would tie back to the disappearing flight 12, yet in the end, all made perfect sense.
If you want to read other books by Brett Battles, the Jonathan Quinn series starts with The Cleaner. His Project Eden series starts with Sick. All are good reads.
