"The best word I can use to describe his writing is addictive."--JAMES ROLLINS, New York Times best selling author

Logan Harper isn't looking for redemption. He just wants to live in peace and forget his troubled past. But one morning his quiet life is upended when he interrupts the attempted murder of his father's best friend Tooney.

The next thing he knows, Logan is on his way to Los Angeles, searching for Tooney's missing granddaughter and uncovering a sinister plot connected not only to Tooney's past, but also to the boardrooms of corporate America.

As the odds stack up against him, Logan must fall back on old skills from the life he'd rather forget. He's made a promise, and the only way to fulfill it is to bring the girl home alive.

    Likeable Logan Harper

    "Little Girl Gone" by Brett Battles:

    Logan Harper lives in Cambria, California, his home town. Previously a defense contractor, he now works at his father's garage, Dunn Right Service and Auto Repair.
    Neal "Harp" Harper, Logan's dad, has a best friend Tooney who owns the coffee shop Logan stops by every morning. Originally from Burma, one of Tooney's daughters, Sein is sort of an ambassador for her country, trying to free its people from their horrid government. The Republic of the Union of Myanmar is not thrilled with what she's doing. She's a thorn in their side and they've figured out a way to shut her up. Kidnap her college-aged daughter, Elyse and exchange her for Sein.
    Harp's group of vet buddies-better known as WAMO-enlist the help of Logan after he witnesses Tooney's severe beating one morning at the coffee shop. He decides to help and finds himself on a trek across Asia in an effort to find and rescue Elyse from her captors before the trail goes cold.or worse.
    I found two characters irresistible the second we met. Dev, a member of WAMO, because of his willingness to do whatever was needed-no questions asked. And then there's Daeng, by all rites, Logan's savior. From the moment he said, "Don't expect me to call you Mr. Harper." I was captivated by his nerve. The more he spoke, the more I liked him, and when he showed me the tiger tattoo on his shoulder, I was hooked.
    Armed with a gun, all the people who agree to help him along the way and an insatiable need to try and make up for a huge mistake (in his eyes) that happened before he was fired from his DC job, Logan is determined to make good on his promise. Maybe even dissipate some of his guilt.
    This book was exhilarating and my first by Battles. He is now added to my shelf of favorite authors. This book is a winner!

    One of the best books I've read!

    This is a page turner that is so good I didn't want it to end. The characters are fantastic and this is so well written. I will definitely buy any other books by Brett Battles.

    Good Read!

    This was a really good book - especially for a "cheapy." When I was finished with it, I wanted to try another in the series. Unfortunately, this is a new series so I'll have to wait.

    Recommend-it is a good book

    Recommend this book for everyone who likes suspense and action. The hero Logan Harper has a lot of issues of his own but he promises to find the missing granddaughter of his father's friend. His frustrating search takes him to Burma where he uncovers a sinister plot.

    Entertaining

    Enjoyed the group of old men and their loyalties. Intrigue and globetrotting. Not always believable but it's a novel and was entertaining. Would read another book by this author.

    A GOOD READ

    I AM CURRENTLY IN THE PROCESS OF READING THIS BOOK. IT HAS KEPT ME IN SUSPENSE AND, SO-CALLED, TURNING THE PAGES WANTING TO SEE HOW THEY SOLVE THIS DILEMNA AND IF THEY SAVE THE "LITTLE GIRL". IT DOES FEED MY INTEREST .. UNLIKE SOME OF THE OTHER NOOK BOOKS I HAVE READ. SUSPENSE IS AN IMPORTANT CRITERIA FOR ME AND THIS PRETTY MUCH FITS THAT BILL. I LIKE HIS STYLE AND IF THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF HIS USUAL FORM I WILL READ MORE OF HIS BOOKS.

    A Page-Turning Thriller

    When it comes to thrillers and suspense, Brett Battles is one of the great master storytellers. This book is similar to his Jonathan Quinn series of novels in that the story involves treachery, international intrigue, sympathetic and likable characters, and a dynamic and lively narrative.

    Logan Harper has a haunted past, and after having left the military to live a quiet life as an auto mechanic, he is soon pressed into service as a mercenary (of sorts) when the granddaughter of a friend is kidnapped by unknown culprits -- at least unknown early on. Soon the players in the drama are revealed, and the adventure sends Logan Harper overseas to Thailand to deal with the young girl's captors. Once this story gets rolling, it doesn't stop until the dramatic conclusion.

    This book is every bit as good at "The Cleaner" and other Quinn novels by Brett Battles. Read this book! You won't be disappointed.

    Unexpected Surprises

    Brett Battles has a new book out called LITTLE GIRL GONE. Directly self-published to e-book format. If you haven't been following his Jonathan Quinn series about a "cleaner" in the espionage business, then you are missing a great thing. With that series, Battles turns a tired genre on its head and gives us an interesting and compelling character with a career that we have little seen in fiction-the guy who comes in after the fact.

    Now, Battles has a new series character and is throwing his name into the ring of those who have chosen to embark on self-published e-books as a way of getting more books out in a year (and of making a larger royalty to boot).

    Like with the Jonathan Quinn series, Battles turns a few more tropes on their heads with LITTLE GIRL GONE. For about the first half of the book, the action takes place in and around southern California. Makes sense, since that's where the author lives. The thing is, I tend to shy away from books set in LA. Not my favorite city. So in the author's favor? He makes LA an interesting setting for the book. When the book suddenly takes a turn about midway through and the action moves to Asia, I was surprised and delighted. Instead of giving the reader an expected stay-in-LA book or a globetrotting adventure, the author picked his locales carefully and delved into each with just the right amount of texture to bring them to life. Nice. I haven't been to the Asian locales in the story, but I've been to similar ones and the detail of those Asian scenes rings true.

    Next, the main character. Who at first seems like the everyman character. Then we have a hint that he might not be the everyman character. Now let me digress here: I generally don't like reading about the everyman character. I'd rather have my hero more heroic. What irks me most however, is when the former Special Forces super-hero character acts like an untrained everyman. (I've seen that in too many books to count.) Coming back to Battles, what he has done here is brilliant-he's designed the character of Logan Harper as a little bit everyman and a little bit heroic badass, and what's more, he gives us a compelling reason for that dichotomy: guilt. Not the typical, yeah-I've-seen-that-before guilt that the stereotypical brooding FBI agent-who-is-one-step-away-from-getting-kicked-out-of-the-agency usually displays in a thriller, but rather in a simple, elegant, and real way with which the reader can identify. The source of Harper's woe is, as it is with Hamlet, his own indecision.

    The plot moves along a little slowly at the start, as the reader wonders why Harper is reluctant to be involved, why the supporting cast are withholding crucial information, and where the whole thing might be going. But then people start disappearing and apartments are quickly sanitized. Lead after lead turns up dead, and before you know it, Battles has you in the palm of his hand and he's taking you on a realistic adventure to a few places you weren't expecting.

    Looks like the start of a great new series. Keep you eye on Battles. He writes so fast you'd think his chair were on fire. He's got two more novels coming out in the next few months and his latest in the Jonathan Quinn series just came out too!

    Great new thriller from Brett Battles!!!

    LITTLE GIRL GONE by Brett Battles, the first in the Logan Harper series, begins with an attempted murder and a kidnapping! Our hero, Logan, in a desperate effort to find the kidnapped victim, is quickly pulled in to assist in the search. The stakes quickly rise as this relatively simple task turns into an international incident involving a secret past life in Burma. Logan finds he must sort through the lies and revisit his own past to find the girl.

    The book begins at a detailed pace, but then quickly picks up as the plot begins to unravel and thicken. The setting moves from the small, non-descript town of in California, to the other side of the Pacific Rim in Thailand; Logan playing both the hunter and the hunted as he becomes a target of the kidnappers.

    LITTLE GIRL GONE is an exciting thriller much like Battles' Jonathan Quinn series. Brett gives his characters personality, developing them well using both events in the present and wonderfully-created histories. His writing style puts readers smack in the middle of the action, allowing them to lose themselves in Logan's world and feel his emotions until the very last page. If you like suspense, mystery, and action, this is the book for you! I highly recommend LITTLE GIRL GONE, as well as THE CLEANER, THE DECEIVED, and SHADOW OF BETRAYAL to anyone!

    Great Start to New Thriller Series!

    "What are you? Some kind of mercenary?"
    "No. Auto mechanic."

    A great scene from a great book. Brett Battles, known for his Jonathan Quinn "Cleaner" thrillers, launches a new series featuring Logan Harper, an auto mechanic with a past. From California to Thailand, this thriller keeps the reader engrossed from beginning to end.

    Battles brings his characters to life, and the I truly cared what happens to them. He crafts realistic plots that are truly interesting and keep you involved. I would read before bed until I couldn't keep my eyes open; I did not want to put the book down until I could no longer hold it upright.

    In Logan Harper, Battles has created another great series lead, and I for one hope the Thai character, Daeng, returns as seems to be hinted.

    In about the last year, Brett Battles has become one of my favorite authors. He's also great to follow on Facebook. If you haven't discovered his Quinn books, be sure to read them start to finish, and now add in this new series featuring Logan Harper.
