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's 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book is a pure delight. Protagonist Jonathan Quinn is a unique and welcome addition to the world of crime fiction. I'm on the edge of my seat, awaiting future instalments of Quinn's adventures." -- Jeffery Deaver
"Brett Battles makes a grand entrance into the thriller scene. An unputdownable spy novel. 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 *
