Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Brett Battles comes another exciting adventure in his award winning Jonathan Quinn thriller series.  

Jonathan Quinn is the best at what he does: making bodies disappear. Within the espionage world, his reputation is impeccable.  

There was a time, though, when that reputation was still being built under his mentor, Durrie. A time when the very man who had taught Quinn all he knew could have derailed the young cleaner’s future.  

Fifteen years ago, Quinn was offered a job. On the surface, a straightforward mission to stop a terrorist. But the client gave Quinn the additional task of taking on Durrie as his number two, as a last chance for the veteran agent to be rehabilitated.  

Durrie had been on a downward spiral, going from being a highly respected operative to an unreliable has-been. These changes threatened to destroy everything - not only in Quinn’s life, but Orlando’s, too. She was Durrie’s girlfriend, and Quinn’s best friend.  

Both she and Quinn were desperate to help Durrie return to the person he once was. They hoped this job would be the answer.  

Durrie had other plans.

Back to the beginning...

For anyone who is a fan of the Jonathan Quinn series. We all know about Durrie, Quinn’s mentor. For anyone who is not a fan I would suggest listening to this book after the prequel BECOMING QUINN. This is the missing story about the fallout between Quinn and Durrie and the beginning of Quinn and Orlando. Excellent story. Durrie was one messed up guy who couldn’t tell the difference between his friends and enemies. Betrayal at it’s finest!
Scott Brick does an excellent job narrating.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

Filing in the earlier time!

All series by Brett Battles are addictive! THE DAMAGED is the second out of chronological order novel in the Jonathan Quinn series. The first was Becoming Quinn which was about his introduction to his mentor Durrie. This one occurs years later when Quinn is on his own and is called to help his former mentor who has gone off the deep end. The Damaged also fills in some of the early Quinn interaction with Orlando. For a listener who is just beginning the Quinn series I recommend listening to Becoming Quinn followed by The Damaged and then moving on to other novels in the series. But the series can be listened to in any order. Narration by Scott Brick is stellar as usual for him. I very highly recommend this novel.

I joined Audible in December 2006. The third novel I purchased, from an author I had never heard of, was The Cleaner which is Book 1 in the Jonathan Quinn series. Since then I have purchased 33 other audio books by Brett Battles. I have never been disappointed.

The Damaged was released in paperback and Kindle versions on July 9 (over 4 months ago) and I have been waiting for the audio book release. I purchased the Kindle version the day it was released so I have been aware of the plot since mid-July.

All of Brett Battles novels except for the Project Eden series can be listened to as standalone. The 7 novel Project Eden series must be listened to in order.

As a fan of this series

I completely enjoyed this every bit as much as the others! Very well done, I really like that the people are realistic, as is the story line. Not many action/adventure stories are, this isn’t at all over the top and that makes it all the more enjoyable. Mr. Brick as always delivers a stellar performance. Thank you both!

Good book and narration..


This really was more of a romance than a usual Quinn book, but I liked it, and didn’t like it. I always liked Durrie but in this one he’s a complete jerk. I know it’s from his bump on the head, but he’s still a jerk. And Orlando was an jerk too. She blamed Quinn for what she thought happened and it wasn’t Quinn’s fault. This was not a favorite Quinn book, but it was still good.

No sex! And no swearing to speak of, which makes the book less exciting. So many bad guys and no serious swearing? Never gonna happen in real life.

As to the narration: Love Scott Brick but he really has to practice his female voices. He doesn’t change his tone at all when Orlando talks. Otherwise, he’s awesome.

Predictable plot.

while it filled in some blank spots and set up for a sequel the whole story as a whole was very predictable.
