Sarah Broadhurst's view...

March 2009 Book of the Month.

This is a brilliant sequel to The Cleaner which readers of my recommendations will remember I waxed lyrical about. We’ve got the same oddball character here getting involved in a spot of investigation, calling on friends and colleagues and leaving us on tenterhooks right up to the end. It’s great stuff.

Comparison: Lee Child, Vince Flynn, Tom Cain.

Synopsis

The Deceived by Brett Battles

As a professional 'cleaner', Jonathan Quinn disposes of bodies and ties up loose ends. Doesn't get his hands dirty, no wet work. But when he discovers he's been hired to vanish all traces of Steven Markoff, one of his best friends who just happened to work for the CIA, his job suddenly hits too close to home. This time, it's personal.

Quinn is determined to get justice for Markoff. Plus, now, Markoff's girlfriend Jenny, who had been an assistant to an ambitious Congressman, has also disappeared. Racing from the corridors of power in Washington to the bustling streets of Singapore - along with his smart, eager apprentice Nate and brilliant, beautiful Orlando, his closest friend who's saved his life more than once - events quickly spiral dangerously out of control. With an addictive momentum and fascinating characters, The Deceived takes us on a thrilling, nerve-wracking journey.
