"THE CLEANER gets off to an eerie start and gets stranger and more intense by the minute. Jonathan Quinn is a covert operator in a shadowy underworld of spying and global organized crime. With his clumsy trainee in tow and only a few necessary facts from "The Office," Quinn sets out to determine what went wrong in a house fire in Colorado and ends up in the middle of an all-out war on him and his Office colleagues. The text lends itself well to audio, and Scott Brick ably performs the narrator's duties. The story rarely gets bogged down, and Brick moves from subdued scene-setting to fast-paced action with aplomb, bringing the reader along every step of the way. A fun thriller. J.B.B.
