Battles: THE SILENCED

CHAPTER

1

Petra glanced at her watch.
4:15 p.m.
Her lips tightened as she held in the curse she so desperately wanted to mutter.
The Cathay Pacific flight to New York was only fifteen minutes from boarding, and there was still no sign of Kolya.
If it had been Mikhail who had not yet arrived, she wouldn't have been so worried. But it wasn't Mikhail. He'd already been sitting in the waiting area when she walked up.
No, of course it was Kolya. She had known from the beginning that he had been too young, too inexperienced to take with them. But what choice did she have?
Maybe an officer at Passport Control had scrutinized his documents. They were expertly done, but fake, so there was always a chance something had been missed. Maybe Kolya had begun to sweat and look nervous. Maybe Hong Kong security had him in a back room right that very moment, questioning him about his identity, and trying to find out who he might be traveling with.
Maybe the police were even now heading toward the gate where Petra and Mikhail waited, intending to take them into custody.
Petra looked down the concourse toward the main part of the terminal. But there were no uniformed men marching in her direction, only other passengers toting carry-ons and wasting time until their flights departed.
There was also no Kolya.
She glanced over at Mikhail two rows away. Though she couldn't see his face, she knew he had to be as tense as she was. Their operation could afford zero complications, especially after having experienced another setback, this time right there in Hong Kong, the former British colony where it had all begun so long ago.
Another possibility hit her. What if Kolya hadn't even arrived at the airport yet? They had each traveled separately. Mikhail took the Airport Express train, while Kolya and Petra had each hailed taxis. What if Kolya's cab had broken down? What if the driver had misunderstood Kolya's destination? Doubtful, she knew. Airport was airport. Even with Kolya's limited English, he should have been able to communicate where he needed to go.
"Ladies and Gentlemen," a voice blared over the public address system. "At this time we will begin pre-boarding Cathay Pacific flight 840 to New York's John F. Kennedy Airport. Passengers traveling with small children or those who need additional assistance may board the aircraft now. Once we are done pre-boarding, we will start boarding all our First Class and Business Class passengers, Marco Polo Club members, and..."
Petra pushed herself up, unable to sit still any longer. Where was he?
Her hand slipped into her shoulder bag as she scanned the terminal, her finger tips quickly searching through her contents. They found what they were looking for. Just touching it made her relax, if only just a little.
At the far end of the terminal dozens of people wearing identical blue sweatshirts moved almost as one toward a gate. Elsewhere, individuals and couples, some using the automated sidewalks, some walking beside them, moved between shops and waiting areas and restrooms. But none of them, none of them, was Kolya.
"Excuse me," a voice said into her ear. "Did you drop this?"
Petra turned quickly, surprised to find Mikhail standing right behind her, holding a pen out. She hadn't even heard him walk up.
"What are you doing?" he whispered through his smile.
"You shouldn't be...

    Highly recommended

    I've read all the Cleaner novels and have enjoyed all. Fast paced and catch you from page one. Hopefully Brett Battles will continue to write about this character. Haven't read anything by this author that I haven't enjoyed. Recommend all his books!!!

    Quinn is at his best!

    For those of us who have fallen in love with Jonathan Quinn, we find that there is another person underneath this cool professional. This book ties in what came before to Quinn and his companions at their best. Starting from a shocking start to an exciting first half, the rest keeps going at an exponential rate of thrills. The only bad part is that I was left totally longing for the next one.

    Jonathan Quinn is back - with a fast paced and gripping adventure!

    I've always loved thrillers so when offered the chance to read Brett Battles' latest book, I grabbed it.

    Jonathan Quinn is a flawed hero that draws you in. He left the military with a stellar record and instead he owns and runs a "troubleshooting security firm." As a mercenary, he tends towards jobs that are beyond the jurisdiction and legal powers of government agencies as well as particularly difficult and urgent jobs. Quinn is selective with his clients, but he's been forced to undertake unpleasant jobs. This time, a preferred client has called with a seemingly simple job - and offers him a ridiculously high fee. There's clearly a catch, and by the time it becomes apparent, Quinn's closest secrets are about to be revealed.

    Friendship, betrayal, violence and adventure - The Silenced is a gripping and satisfying read.

    ISBN-10: 0440245672 - Mass Market Paperback
    Publisher: Dell (April 5, 2011), 416 pages.

    The fourth Cleaner thriller is an exhilarating tale

    As a Cleaner for hire Jonathan Quinn always feared his past will catch up to his present. So far he has been fortunate, but his luck runs out on his latest job. As Quinn mourns the death of a man he considered his father and worries about his mom, a client David Willis employs Jonathan and his crew to take care of something in the states and remove a long buried body from a London building about to be demolished.

    However, the simple extraction proves deadly as more corpses surface. His girlfriend Orlando and his business partner Nate assist Quinn who realizes two groups are competing with dead people being the ante. The Cleaner and his associates know a joker has targeted him and guilt by association his teammates for cleansing too.

    The fourth Cleaner thriller (see Shadow of Betrayal and The Deceived) is an exhilarating tale as the crew struggle to avoid being another Cleaner's cleaning. The international conspiracy is over the top of Big Ben, but fans of the series will not care as Quinn, Orlando and Nate are loose ends needing a deadly cleaning.

    Another Great Read by Battles!

    Review based on Advance Review Copy from Dell: I have been a huge fan of Brett Battles and the Jonathan Quinn series since reading book #1, The Cleaner. This book The Silenced, I believe is the best one so far, I picked it up and could not put it down. This book was very neatly tied up and waiting for the 5th book in the series to be written. All of the characters you have grown to love are still all there; Quinn, Orlando, Nate etc. You will not be disappointed in this read.. I am patiently awaiting the next Jonathan Quinn release..5 out of 5 Stars!
