Ananke thought her week couldn't get worse, but as she hunts for the man who screwed up her previous job, things really go sideways.
Turns out, she's not the only one having problems.
Rosario can acquire anything for anyone, but can she obtain freedom for herself when her latest assignment goes awry?
Dylan's sure his new gig will be a walk in the park - or rather, a drive, given that he's a courier. Unfortunately, the road is a bit bumpier than he expected.
Liesel is having the worst week of her life, and blames only herself.
And Ricky? Well, Ricky doesn't believe in bad weeks. Though he can't claim being stuck in prison is all that great. Convenient for all of them, then, that a mysterious organization comes along asking for their help, and in return promises to reverse their excommunication from the secret world.
Of course, nothing good ever comes without strings attached.

Another very entertaining Brett Battles series
For anyone who is a follower of the Jonathan Quinn series this is a known character from the novel The Buried. Ananke is a woman assassin. Her specialty is making death look like a result of natural causes.
Ananke and three other operatives are set up or framed and all have a contract out on them. A fifth operative is taken out of prison. He too is from the book The Buried. This is Ricky Orbit, he's a hunter who is also full of wise cracks and does things by the seat of his pants without thought to the consequences.
This is a really good fast paced story that I am assuming will become a series that will also share books with the Quinn series. This is hinted at in this book by way of some communication between J. Quinn and Ananke in this book.
Anyway I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED this as well as the J. Quinn series to anyone who hasn't read it.

Spin-off from the Jonathan Quinn series!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! There are five protagonists, but the primary one is assassin for hire Ananke who played a major part in novel #9, The Buried, in the Jonathan Quinn series by Brett Battles. Ricky had a smaller role n the same novel. Audible classifies The Excoms as an espionage thriller; I would classify it as an action and suspense thriller. I could not wait for the audio book, so I purchased and read the Kindle version before the Audible version was released. Listening to it was fun.
The people who are manipulating the five protagonists are shadowy and are never identified. The protagonists are forced to try to recover 6 girls kidnapped for ransom. This novel has real potential as a series. Narration is stellar.
