Over the series, new characters have been added, and Quinn's life has changed, but that doesn't stop the books from being non-stop action.
I alway prefer reading series in order, I like getting to know the character, but if you have not read any of this series yet, I think it would be okay to start here. With the storyline, there is enough info to understand what is going on, and the action takes off from the first chapter and never lets up. I really think though, if you start with this one, you will want to go back and read the others. I already look forward to more from this author.
The books usually center on something unexpected at the scene that draws Quinn and his colleagues into something far more sinister than they anticipated. The plots typically have international intrigue, national security threats, espionage and more than a few paid assassins.
The most recent titles in the series have added another element – focusing not only on Quinn’s work as a “cleaner” but also on the consequences his career path has had on his personal life.
Quinn and Orlando have a baby daughter now to go along with Orlando’s teenage son. Nate – Quinn’s one-time protégé, and now partner – is also dating Quinn’s sister.
In THE UNLEASHED, both Quinn and Nate are looking forward to a much-needed vacation. Quinn, Orlando and the kids are in Thailand. Nate and Quinn’s sister are in Europe.
But a prison break in Cambodia has unleashed a wave of revenge killings across Southeast Asia – and Quinn, Orlando and the kids end up in its path.
In Europe, a mysterious girl is targeted for assassination – and only Nate can save her.
Like every other book in this series, the plot is fast-paced and filled with explosive action and exotic locales. I read it straight through in one afternoon because it’s that hard to put down.
One thing I’m not sure about – it could be readers who are new to the series will not find it as compelling as long-time readers and fans of Brett Battles. That’s because the “cleaner” aspect of the series isn’t really part of this plot, and that’s the one thing I always felt really elevated it above so many others in this genre.
It’s not a problem for long-time fans of the series because they’ll be invested in what happens to the characters – but if you’re new to Jonathan Quinn, then after you’ve finished THE UNLEASHED I highly recommend you go back and read THE CLEANER. You’ll likely get hooked on the entire series.
In The Unleashed Quinn and Orlando are on vacation in Thailand with Orlando’s teenage son Garrett and their infant daughter Claire. Daeng has helped them make the arrangements but what none of them know is that some heavy-duty gangsters have escaped from prison in Cambodia and are out to seek revenge on those who got them imprisoned and those who exploited their criminal enterprises in their absence. Daeng is one of the former and the gangsters decide that killing all of Daeng’s friends might be a useful first step in punishing him.
Meanwhile, back in Barcelona, Quinn’s partner Nate is relaxing with Quinn’s civilian sister Liz. He is suddenly pressed into service to convey a ‘package’ (an Indian woman named Dima) to a yacht on the Barcelona beachfront. Unfortunately the yacht blows up before Dima can board. Since they were 30 minutes late arriving there, Nate deduces that there was a time bomb aboard and that his handler, Helen Cho, has been betrayed. Actually there is another woman out to kill Dima, a shadowy Washington presence known only as the Fixer. So Nate and Liz are stuck with Dima when Quinn needs Nate in Thailand (and, eventually, other points). Meanwhile, the escaped gangsters are trying to kill everyone and, perhaps, begin by abducting Garrett and Claire.
That is the setup. From there we plunge into international travel on private jets, spy vs. spy crossfires, chases in Jakarta highrises and miscellaneous mayhem. The interesting wrinkle is the addition of Garrett and Claire. Remember that Garrett has been trained by Orlando to handle himself if and when he gets into scrapes. Since his father is the man who actually trained Quinn we can be assured that he has a sound gene pool. If he can only remember Claire’s diapers . . . .
This is one of the best of the Jonathan Quinn novels. This one is more marked by international settings than armament and ordnance and things get very personal in the course of the narrative. Fans of the series will not want to miss it. Newcomers to the series may want to begin at the beginning with The Cleaner, the novel which introduced us to Quinn and his fascinating team.
