The Silenced

(Jonathan Quinn: book 4): a roller-coaster ride of a global thriller that will have you hooked from page one

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.

Attention all Jason Bourne, James Bond or Jack Reacher fans - this is the book for you! This is a thriller in every sense of the word, with double-backs and triple crosses galore. Add a razor sharp plot and you've got one hell of a ride!

Professional 'cleaner' Jonathan Quinn's latest job is a strange one: 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.
