The fourth Jonathan Quinn novel takes him to Paris and London on the trail of a man known only as The Ghost. But the hunter becomes the hunted when Quinn finds that someone is stalking his family.
Professional 'cleaner' Jonathan Quinn has a new client and a odd job: find and remove the remains of a body hidden twenty 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 crossfire 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 just been hired to tie up loose ends - he is one.
“The Silenced, a complex, action-packed international cat and mouse game, will be catnip for thriller readers. Old and new fans will rejoice that Jonathan Quinn is back in the game -- sharper, more dangerous, and more human than ever”
New York Times bestselling author John Lescroart
“The Silenced is a thriller in every sense of the word, full of double-backs and triple crosses, linked by a story that moves like a fuse and characters the reader genuinely cares about. It's Battles' best book yet”
Timothy Hallinan, author of the Poke Rafferty Bangkok Thrillers
“A gripping read. The plot grabs you and won't let go. Quinn is as cool as ever”
Meg Gardiner, author of THE LIAR'S LULLABY
“Action-packed and dripping with tension, Jonathan Quinn is ready to join Gabriel Allon and Mitch Rapp in the pantheon of elite spy thriller characters. Battles is only getting better, and The Silenced is the best Quinn yet”
Jason Pinter, bestselling author of THE MARK and THE FURY
