What a Ride!!! The Reason by Quentin Brent is a thrill a minute, roller coaster of a novel that you won’t be able to put down!!

Zane Donovan and his family live a rich luxurious lifestyle, supported by his job in the financial industry. The problem is – Zane has been involved in some dirty games, and although he is getting filthy rich, his conscience is beginning to bug him. Now, his conscience and moral values may very well endanger his life, as well as everyone he loves.

The twists, the turns, the surprises will grab you! I LOVED this book!! Life got put on hold once I picked up “The Reason” – because I couldn’t put it down!!!

The Reason" is an explosive thriller debut, highly recommended by our staff.

“Quentin Brent doesn’t waste any time. In this taut, exciting financial thriller, he grabs you from the first page and doesn’t let go till the last.”

—Charles Salzberg, author of Swann’s Lake of Despair and Devil in the Hole

Quentin Brent’s The Reason is an absolutely masterful, explosive debut thriller. Brent has a rare style which is at once minimalist and yet vibrantly elegant, all the while cleverly hinting at the mayhem just around the corner.

The spot-on dialogue is crackling-crisp, poignant, and punchy by turns. The Reason will captivate the most discerning reader who loves international intrigue. It’s the ultimate meeting of high finance and high velocity.

A brilliant book today, Hollywood would be collectively insane to not adapt Brent’s The Reason into a feature film tomorrow.”
