The Destroyed

The Destroyed - Brett Battles The problem with this type of story is it is almost too clever and the reader can quite easily get lost even though the action is fast and non stop. Mila Voss was assasinated in 2006 or was she?...only Quinn holds the answer to this dilemma and so far he is not telling...until the unthinkable happens and Voss is identified in the present. So did the cleaner "Quinn" not carry out his mission? The story moves at a swift pace across the world's continents heading towards a conclusion which will include double dealing and duplicity at the highest levels in the American government. I kept losing interest in the storyline at various stages thoughout, often having to backtrack to remind myself of the core plot/players at the centre of this political drama, and that to me is not the mark of a good read......
