Review & Giveaway: The Unleashed by Brett Battles
The Unleashed is the 10th book in the Jonathan Quinn series by Best-selling and Award Winning Thriller writer Brett Battles. I got my hands on the version just yesterday afternoon, listened to it late into the wee hours of the morning and picked it right up again when I woke up. While drinking my coffee I found myself hurrying just to get back to the audiobook because it was nearly impossible to hit the pause button on my iPhone. So, I guess that you can imagine how good the story is and what a great job Scott Brick has done with the narration.
As a little background for those not familiar with this series, Jonathan Quinn is a Cleaner. His team is called to clean up the mess after a wet job is over. They make the bodies and all evidence disappear forever. I highly recommend the entire Jonathan Quinn series of thrillers as it is amazing, unputdownable and it has never disappointed in any way.
The story opens with a prison break where we make our acquaintance with one of the main bad guys of this book and after that we follow the Quinn family as they arrive on an island in Thailand for a well deserved vacation. On the other side of the World, in Spain, Quinn’s partner and friend, Nate is on a surveillance job and thinking that it was an easy assignment he brought his girlfriend, Quinn’s sister, to spend some time together.
Everything is nice and dandy on all sides, the bad guy is punishing those responsible for his imprisonment. Quinn, Orlando and their kids enjoy the privacy of the island and Nate and Quinn’s sister are having fun in Barcelona, but things start to go wrong for everyone as the job in Spain gets complicated and two members from the Quinn family go missing. From now on, the action moves blazingly fast from Thailand to Europe and back to some other Asian countries as the search for their loved once intensifies.
Brett Battles is one of my favorite authors, I listened to all his books and I’m amazed every time when I realize that he is getting better and better with every Thriller released. From The Cleaner to The Project Eden Series to his time traveling adventures Rewinder, Brett‘s storytelling is consistent. It entertains, thrills and It grabs you by the neck and never lets go. The Unleashed delivers on all fronts, its very fast, the story is well written and filled with vivid and lifelike characters and the end of the book will probably make dedicated Quinn fans, like myself, want to cry… I’ll not say anything else… Let’s move on to the narration.
The amazing and award-winning actor Scott Brick returns once more to give life to Quinn, Nate, Orlando and to all other characters involved in this book. He uses his skills as a narrator entertaining and delighting the listener with a huge range of voices and exotic accents. Scott‘s performance is perfect and I could tell that he loves this series as much as I do.
If you are an audiobook listener you know who Scott Brick is and The Unleashed is another example for why he just won two Audie Awards last week. Tomorrow I’ll start City of Mirror‘s by Justin Cronin, also performed by Scott so you’ll probably ”hear” me again talking and praising his talent very soon.
If you are a Thriller fan, a Quinn fan or a Brett Battles fan, you have to read The Unleashed and if you like audiobooks go with this version because Scott’s narration is amazing!

Even those who make bodies disappear for a living need a vacation. To Quinn and Orlando, the offer of a private villa on a quiet island beach sounds like heaven, and they jump at the chance for some family time with their six-month old daughter and Orlando’s teenage son.
At first it seems as though their holiday will be even better than they’d hoped. The water is warm, the house is beautiful, and the view is spectacular.
But when revenge is in the air, things have a way of going sideways.
