Publisher's Summary

Professional “cleaner” Jonathan Quinn has a new client and an odd job: find and remove the remains of a body hidden 20 years ago inside the walls of a London building, before the building is demolished.

But Quinn and his team are being watched. Suddenly caught in the cross fire between two dangerous rivals, Quinn must unravel the identity of the body and why it still poses so great a threat even in death. Because a plot stretching from the former Soviet Union to Hong Kong, from Paris to London, from Los Angeles to Maine, is rapidly falling apart. And Quinn hasn’t been hired just to tie up loose ends - he is one.

    "London: Clean up a 20 year old body?"

    Another great installment. This one does not involve a fresh murder, but an old, hidden, dried up body and someone that wants it cleaned up and some that don't.

    As always, Quinn has to get involved with the details. Unravelling the mystery while staying alive takes us on another entertaining adventure.

    Welcome back narrator Scott Brick. It's always a pleasure to hear you voicing a book.

    "My favorite Quinn book yet!"

    The author really seems to hit his stride with this installment. I have really enjoyed the character development as this series has unfolded. The chemistry and banter among the characters is so entertaining. I would recommend this series although you may have to struggle through book 2 due to the deviation in narrators. Brick does a great job (as usual) with the narration.

    "Battles does it again!! Best Quinn book yet."

    What am amazing ride! Brett Battles has done it again. The latest Quinn book "The Silenced" is a non stop action thriller from the start that doesn't end until the end. Battles is a true master. II have read each of the four Quinn books and this one is the best thus far. I highly recommend this for anyone interested in the espionage game or who just wants to reach an extremely well written thriller.

    "This is a great listen!!!"
    Would you listen to The Silenced again? Why?

    Yes. I enjoy rereading Brett Battles novels. They are full of action and suspense. His writing is a plus, too. Listening to Scott Brick only made the novel better.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nate. He had to take charge of this operation. He proved that he could be a professional Cleaner. His days as an apprentice are over. Quinn is a great teacher.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Finding Quinn so that he could be involved in the operation.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Come and watch the great Quinn perform his operations, they will thrill you till the end, leaving you wanting more.


    Any additional comments?

    Be sure to read the series. You will not be disappointed.

    "Good listen-keeps your attention"
    Would you listen to The Silenced again? Why?

    Yes, I will listen to it again. I recently discovered Brett Battles does write my kind of books and, of course, Scott Brick makes the listening even better.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the character in the book and will listen to other books in the series.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott Brick just does a good job on any book. When choosing a new author and I see Scott has the narrated the book, I will give it a try.

    "Love the Quinn series."

    This story unfolds steadily - picking up.momentum as it goes. It's a great listen that you can't stand to stop once you are in it.

    "Scott Brick does it again!!!"

    A good book that's not narrated by a good narrator can be difficult to get through. I will listen to a book just because Scott Brick is the narrator. I also stop listening to a series if the narrator is bad or mediocre.

    What made the experience of listening to The Silenced the most enjoyable?

    Picking up where book 1 left off, this second book keeps up the characters and story lines with spectacular consistency. I thoroughly enjoy this series
