“A complex, action-packed international cat and mouse game.”—New York Times bestselling author John Lescroart 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. “[Jonathan] Quinn is one part James Bond, one part Jason Bourne.” —Nashville Book Worm Download and start listening now!

    John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author of Damage

  • “Action-packed and dripping with tension, Jonathan Quinn is ready to join Gabriel Allon and Mitch Rapp in the pantheon of elite spy thriller characters. Battles [are] only getting better, and The Silenced is the best Quinn yet.”

    Jason Pinter, bestselling author of The Mark and The Fury

  • The Silenced is a thriller in every sense of the word, full of double-backs and triple crosses, linked by a story that moves like a fuse and characters the reader genuinely cares about. It’s Battles’ best book yet.”

    " 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. "

    " As enjoyable as her first book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alfred | 12/10/2013

    " Did a good job of baffling the reader, up until all becomes clear about 3/4 of the way through. Unconvincing and cliched psychological motive where someone is seemingly made murderous by some fairly moderate trauma. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dee | 10/7/2013

    " I truly enjoy good Scandinavian mysteries. Kristina Ohlsson provided yet another good read for me. I enjoyed the characters as well as the mystery. I will go back and read her first one! "

    " I read this in English. I hope it's the right book. The English title is "Silenced." Very much enjoyed it. "

    " Quite a good murder mystery - but the plot & ending were so convoluted I lost the thread! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carola | 10/28/2012

    " Good story, nice characters. The writer knows until the end of your attention. "

    " For the majority of it, this book was heading for a 4 or 5. Joy! A new Scandinavian author. Near the end, however, the ultimate rookie mistake--too many plotlines, characters and confusion. Not planning to read her again. "

    " Very good follow up to the first book. I'm very excited about the fourth book coming out in pocket in Sweden. I love these books! "
