THE CLEANER by Brett Battles

On sale June 26, this debut novel of new world espionage follows professional "cleaner" Jonathan Quinn, hired by secret organization "The Office" to dispose of a body after a fire.

When Quinn arrives on scene, evidence indicates murder, apparently a calling card left for The Office. Suddenly not only members of The Office, but Quinn himself become targets for assassination. Forced to go to ground with his apprentice in tow, Quinn begins to piece together evidence, following it from Los Angeles, to Vietnam, to Berlin—all well evoked by Battles.

Rich as the location details are, the pace never dallies, raising the stakes to global proportions. In short, everything a thriller fan could want.

Yeah, I really liked this book too. Have you checked out his podcasts on writing with Rob Brown?
