Night Man is coming...and you don’t want to be caught in his sights.

From award-winning and USA Today best-selling author Brett Battles comes Mercy, the highly anticipated third thriller in the Night Man Chronicles featuring Nate, from Battles' best-selling Jonathan Quinn series.

“Help me! Please!”

With their jobs in the spy world on suspension, all Nate and Jar wanted was a little vacation time out of the city. But not even two days on the road, their plans are hijacked by a teen’s cry.

What starts out as helping the kid out of a tricky situation leads Nate and Jar into a dark world of fire and hate, of greed and corruption.

As much as they might want to continue on their way, neither would ever do so.

Because helping those who aren’t in a position to help themselves is Nate and Jar’s specialty.

If you enjoy action-packed mystery crime thrillers with high-stakes suspense, surprising plot-twists, and a cast of unforgettable characters, then join millions of fans who love Battles’ novels and start listening to Mercy, your next great listen, today.

Well Written, Captivating, Edge of Your Seat...

...thrilling.
I really like the Night Man series featuring Nate from the Jonathan Quinn series. This is the third book in the series of standalone books. I prefer listening in order but it is not necessary. I would suggest listening to book one first for some background but again that is subjective. In the Quinn books Nate plays second fiddle to his boss. Always a good read but so much hidden potential. This series gives Battles the arena to develop Nate’s character to his full potential.
Nate is a very methodical man. He finds wrongs and tries to make them right. Usually when he find someone slightly shady there’s more going on behind the scenes that make the little wrongs more like an iceberg. What’s below the surface is immense. His traps are elaborate and well thought out. It’s great listening to how the bad guy gets tricked into walking right in to a perfectly orchestrated trap that takes almost a whole book to lay out
Zack Villa does an excellent job narrating.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

Nate and Jar (and Liz)

I see that Shelley has already reviewed MERCY which is Book 3 in The Night Man Chronicles series by Brett Battles. I agree with everything in her review so I will add to it rather than repeating it.

Liz: Nate, originally the helper of Jonathan Quinn and now Quinn's partner, met and fell in love with Quinn's sister Liz midway in the Quinn series. Liz was later killed during an operation is Europe.Nate had a very difficult time accepting Liz's death. Even now, several years later, Liz still talks to him. He realizes it's all in his mind but her advice/pleadings to him are unerring in their accuracy. All three of the books in this series result from Nate following Liz's advice.

Jar: Jar is a 22 year old Asian woman who is on the autism spectrum. She was introduced in recent novels in the Quinn series and became a full team member in The Vanished. She first appeared in the Night Man series in Book 2.. She is a genius with computers and language both of which she taught herself. She now lives with Nate. Their relationship is non-sexual. Jar takes everything literally and she cannot tolerate being touched. After living with Nate for a year she has made progress in both areas.

Nate: In MERCY Nate clearly wants to move on from long dead girlfriend Liz and establish a new girlfriend relationship with Jar.

LOVED IT!

I waited so long for this to be released on audible. I’m so happy. I love this series and this author.

I love Nate and Jar. they make such a great team. I am a huge Brett Battles fan. If you haven’t read his books you are missing out this is a great spinoff from the Jonathan Quinn series.

This is my first time listening to this narrator and he did a really really good job I will look for more of his narrations. He gave everyone their own voice and read with emotion.

Decent story but hate all the Covid-19 references

This is a fictional character and there is no reason to constantly include phrases like they put on their mask or they didn’t follow CDC guidelines. People read or listen to escape that kind of everyday B.S. and don’t like to heard about it in a novel.

Covid hysteria in this book ruined the story

If you could have dropped the fear mongering for this it would have been my favorite of the series. Nearly nonstop observation that people weren’t wearing masks “gasp” or even worse “not social distancing” (oh the horror) did not add value to the story and were major detractions. Stick with the story line please. Great characters and otherwise great story.

Good Nate story

It’s interesting that some stories are about being a “do gooder” but I’d rather there was more genuine cleaner work. The story must have been written before Covid mask wearing was documented in studies such as the Danish mask study or other WHO or CDC, or peer reviewed, mask wearing studies. The shaming was unnecessary and counter reality. Without that I might have enjoyed it more.
Regardless, I’ll read Brett Battles again.

We get it, wear a mask.

Great author. Great narrator. I listen to fiction to get away from everyone’s opinion. Brett voices his multiple times in the first few hours. I even agree with him, but get tired of hearing it. I’m not finishing this book and will return it.

Very entertaining

I enjoyed the story and performance very much. There are many mentions about Covid-19. It will be a time reminder for readers in the future. I love the part about being careful to wear masks, social distance, and not make physical contact with strangers. I love it when a writer keeps it real and in this case acknowledges scientific precautions.

I also like the authors genuine love and concern for children.

I enjoyed his Rewinder series. I will buy more of his titles. Great writer! Great narrator!

Immersing

I always look forward to author Brett Battles's "The Night Man Chronicles" series." This third book "Mercy" was gripping, thrilling, and eventful. I will look forward to number four in this series. Narrator Zach Villa is perfect for this series.

Fan Freaking Tastic!

Wow, Bravo! To both Mr. Battles and Mr. Villa, Thank you! I’m a fan of everything written by this author and this series is exceptional. This one is very well done, and I have to say, it was brought to life in such an amazing way by the narrator. Please don’t switch who reads these, because Mr. Villa IS Nate! Captivating and a joy.
The only nit picky point I could even think of, why didn’t they think to have a fire extinguisher on hand for the last part? Seems like these pro’s would have had that as a given for what they had set up.
(Just a thought and didn’t diminish anything)
I can’t wait for the next book!
