Summary

From Amazon number-one best-selling author Mark Dawson, this novella is an introduction to John Milton, the most dangerous assassin in the pay of Her Majesty’s government.
Meet John Milton. He considers himself an artisan. A craftsman. His trade is murder. Milton is the man the government sends after you when everything else has failed. Ruthless. Brilliant. Anonymous. Lethal. You wouldn't pick him out of a crowd, but you wouldn't want to be on his list.
But now, after ten years, he's had enough - there's blood on his hands, and he wants out. Trouble is this job is not one you can just walk away from. In this dip into his case files, Milton is sent into North Korea. With nothing but a sniper rifle, bad intentions, and a very particular target. Will Milton be able to take on the secret police of the most dangerous failed state on the planet?
Mark Dawson has worked as a lawyer and currently works in the London film industry. His first books, The Art of Falling Apart and Subpoena Colada, have been published in multiple languages.

A short story making you want more when it ends. Milton is deadly as ever, an insight into this regime.
Recommended.

Just About Piques the Interest

This novella is billed as an introduction to John Milton, a character I've seen referred to as "Britain's Jack Reacher". I would have to say that for me it probably just about succeeded in that I have added the first full-size novel to my wish list to read "one day". It was a borderline thing for me though, the author didn't sell his lead man to me enough to make me really want to find out more. If would have worked better as an introduction had he focused more on Milton's thought processes and behaviour than his enemy's.

As a short story overall though it's fine. David Thorpe is a good narrator and the plot hums along nicely. My personal feeling is that it would probably be better to dive in with a full-length book and treat this as part of the John Milton odds and ends if you find yourself needing to be a complete collector for the character.

Excellent story but too short

I really enjoyed this short story. The writer was able to put me in the center of the story. The characters were realistic and fully developed. The plot was believable and exciting. I was disappointed that it was not longer because the writer had set the reader up for a roller coaster ride and it ended too quickly. I hope to see more material from this writer.

The reader was also excellent. I had no trouble distinguishing who was who. He accelerated the excitement which added a measure of enjoyment.
