Meet Jonathan Quinn: a freelance operative with a take-no-prisoners
style and the heart of a loner. His job? Professional
'cleaner'. Nothing too violent, just disposing of bodies,
doing a little cleanup if necessary.
But in Brett Battles' thrilling debut novel, Quinn's latest
assignment will change everything, igniting a harrowing journey of
violence, betrayal and revenge. The job seemed simple enough:
investigating a suspicious case of arson. But when a dead body
turns up where it doesn't belong - and Quinn's handlers at
'the Office' turn strangely silent - he knows he's in
over his head.
With only a handful of clues, Quinn scrambles for cover, struggling
to find out why someone wants him dead - and if it is linked to a
larger attempt to wipe out the Office.

The Cleaner has it all: exotic locales, James Bondian derring-do, and ingenious plot twists that will keep you sweating all the way till the end." -- Tess Gerritsen "Displaying an enviable gift for pacing and action, Battles's debut novel is a page-turner that may remind some readers of the cult T V spy series ALIAS... Admirers of quality espionage fiction can look forward to a new series worth following." Publishers Weekly
