Ananke and her team are sent to a small town in Washington state to find a missing woman. She had been gathering info for the CEO of an up and coming company. Something underhanded was going on there and she was getting him proof. Then she disappeared. Supposedly she sent a text message suing she was going out of town.
When the team begins their investigation they find that the data on her phone had been manipulated. The inaccuracies begin when doctored data shows that her phone was off when it had actually been on. When Ananke, Rosario & Ricky (operatives) break into the woman's house they find her desktop computer missing but not her luggage. Then a local police officer comes snooping around the house checking booby traps to see if they've been sprung. Is she in on it? Or is she worried about her friend? Does she know what's going on in town?
Then Ricky see something going on in the middle of the night. Security vehicles and vans unload unconscious people in wheelchairs. Are they being trafficked or is it something more sinister? Is the missing woman just the top of an iceberg?
As with the Jonathan Quinn series this book moves along at s good clip. There is planning and replanning. Theories replaced by new with each new discovery until the entire conspiracy is uncovered. Book 2 is equally as good if not better then the first.
Allyson Johnson does an excellent job narrating. She even does men well!
My HIGHLY RECOMMENDATIONS!!!!

Town at the Edge of Darkness is the second suspense mystery/thriller in the Excoms series. It is set in the small town of Bradbury, Washington where a woman is missing. The Excoms series has has five protagonists led by Ananke who is an assassin who appeared in as a major character in novel #9, The Buried, in the Jonathan Quinn series by Brett Battles. The Excoms team is controlled by a mysterious administrator. This novel was released in Kindle format free to borrow with Kindle Unlimited on December 12, 2017, so I read it then. It is even better Allyson Johnson narrating it. The novel starts a bit slowly, but the action and suspense picks up quickly.
Author Brett Battles is a remarkable writer who released his first novel titled The Cleaner (Jonathan Quinn series) in 2007 and has now released 32 novels all except the standalone The Pull of Gravity and the YA novel Here Comes Mr. Trouble are available at Audible. 30 are in my Audible library. There are six different series of which the espionage Jonathan Quinn series is best known. The series include the science fiction Rewinder Thrillers and the post apocalyptic Project Eden series. The remarkable fact is that all of Brett Battles novels are outstanding.
If you like novels by Vince Flynn, Tom Clancy, Lisa Gardner, Nelson DeMille, Karin Slaughter, Mark Greaney, Tom Wood, Ben Coes, Marc Cameron, or Brad Taylor, you owe it to yourself to give books written by Brett Battles a try.
