Professional “cleaner” Jonathan Quinn has a new client and an odd job: find and remove the remains of a body hidden twenty years ago inside the walls of a London building, before the building is demolished.

But Quinn and his team are being watched. Suddenly caught in the cross fire between two dangerous rivals, Quinn must unravel the identity of the body and why it still poses so great a threat even in death. Because a plot stretching from the former Soviet Union to Hong Kong, from Paris to London, from Los Angeles to Maine, is rapidly falling apart. And Quinn hasn’t been hired just to tie up loose ends—he is one.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by CookieDemon | 2/18/2014

    " Safe to say I was disappointed with this book, particularly after enjoying the first one in the series so much, which is the only reason I hung on until the bitter end. Too many characters, a disjointed plot-line and nowhere near as attention-grabbing as I had anticipated it to be. It was a struggle to finish it to be honest. I'm just glad I borrowed it from a friend and didn't pay for it myself. "

    " Spellbinding, intriguing, terrifying, addictive! Could not put it down-absolutely amazing and thoroughly recommended!!! "

    " Niet zo sterk, duurde heel lang voor het begon ze boeien. Net op het moment dat Ik het boek weg wilde leggen, werd het spannender. "

    " Throughout this case it was almost lead by Fredrika Bergman. But you were left off high a dry as to what happened to her. Other than she had her baby you aren't left with her married man at all if he survives. Kristina leaves us wondering. "
