*********************************************
JONATHAN QUINN'S WORK COMES AFTER THE CRIME. BUT NOW THE CRIME'S COMING AFTER HIM.

Quinn is a freelancer working for 'the Office', a shadowy criminal organisation. His job is to clean up crime scenes - dispose of bodies, wipe away prints - anything to help them get away with it.

His latest job seems simple enough: investigate a suspicious case of arson. Until the moment a dead body turns up where it doesn't belong, and Quinn's Office handlers go strangely silent.

The Office is under threat, and someone wants him dead.

And if Quinn can't figure out what's going on from only a handful of clues, he'll never clean another crime scene.

He'll be the crime scene.

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 *
