Publisher Comments:

The meeting place was carefully chosen: an abandoned church in rural Ireland just after dark. For Jonathan Quinna freelance operative and professional “cleaner”the job was only to observe. If his cleanup skills were needed, it would mean things had gone horribly wrong. But an assassin hidden in a tree assured just that. And suddenly Quinn had four dead bodies to dispose of and one astounding clueto a mystery that is about to spin wildly out of control.

Three jobs, no questions. That was the deal Quinn had struck with his client at the Office. Unfortunately for him, Ireland was just the first. Now Quinn, along with his colleague and girlfriendthe lethal Orlandohas a new assignment touched off by the killings in Ireland. Their quarry is a U.N. aide worker named Marion Dupuis who has suddenly disappeared from her assignment in war-torn Africa. When Quinn finally catches a glimpse of her, she quickly flees, frantic and scared. And not alone.

For Quinn the assignment has now changed. Find Marion Dupuis, and the child she is protecting, and keep them from harm. If it were only that easy.

Soon Quinn and Orlando find themselves in a bunker in the California hills, where Quinn will unearth a horrifying plot that is about to reach stage critical for a gathering of world leadersand an act of terror more cunning, and more insidious, than anyone can guess.

Fast, smart, sleek, and stunning, Shadow of Betrayal is vintage Brett Battles: a gritty, gripping masterpiece of suspense, a thriller that makes the pulse poundand stirs the heart as well.

From the Hardcover edition.

I enjoy fast-paced action thrillers with bighearted heroes, so I couldn't put down Brett Battles's latest Jonathan Quinn novel.

Jonathan Quinn is a master at what he does and he's started out on his own. In his business trust and honor are everything. Since this is the third book in the series and Battles intentionally doesn't tell us how Quinn was maneuvered into agreeing to "3 jobs, no questions" which would be a story in itself. It's one of those contract terms that will clearly prove problematic and it does, particularly since Quinn isn't about to renege on the deal.

If you're willing to suspend disbelief and dive into the story, Quinn and his loyal band of ex-military are a fun escape. The "3 jobs, no questions" places them in a precarious position from the start and we see just how wily their employer gets. But there's a larger story -- the targeting of a vulnerable group and the risk of an international incident -- in the middle of the intrigue, espionage, and action.

I do enjoy books like Shadow of Betrayal because of the fast-paced action and unexpected twists. The book read much like a high octane action film with sympathetic heroes and a satisfying conclusion. If you're looking to escape with a fun thriller, check out Brett Battles's Shadow of Betrayal.
