This is another good story from Brett Battles, with all the key characters returning, along with a new support from a monk. Also, Peter from the "Office" plays a bigger part in the story.
All in all, a very enjoyable read (listen)
I listen to these stories in my car whist driving and they certainly help the miles to fly by!
Story - The Destroyed is an awesome espionage thriller. It is good from the first sentence, and the suspense and action never let up. There are no dull spots, no filler stuff, just great story from beginning to end. The book is not confusing or hard to follow, but you will need to pay close attention. There are lots of players and it alternates between two timelines that you will have to keep straight. There is violence and killing, but that is not the main thrust of the story.
This is Book 5 of the Jonathan Quinn series, but it's my first. I'm sure I missed out on some background information and history, but this story stands alone perfectly and the ending ties up everything nicely.
Narrator - I know Scott Brick is a favorite of Audible listeneres, and now I can understand why. He does a great job (and has a pretty sexy voice, too), but I withhold my 5's for great jobs done on more difficult performances.
Overall - Get this book. You will not be disppointed.

I thoroughly enjoyed Becoming Quinn, the novel that reveals how a rookie cop was recruited to become a professional cleaner. This was a good read with great suspense.
However I've been shying away from the novels centered around nearly super human characters. This book comes dangerously close.
Having said that, anyone who enjoys the Jack Reacher, Gray Man and Mitch Rapp series will love Jonathan Quinn series. You will not be disappointed.
