Publisher's Summary

John Milton is trying to make amends for a career spent killing for the British Secret Service. He has a burning need to right wrongs - and rewrite his own bloody past. He finds himself in Louisiana, the Big Sleazy, the bayou, and the post-Katrina wreckage of the Gulf Coast with a debt of honor to repay.
Isadora Bartholomew, who saved his partner's life, needs his help. Joel Babineaux, a ruthless property magnate, is out to sink the charity she established to help rebuild the Lower Ninth Ward.
Just when Milton thinks he has neutralised Babineaux's scheming, a dangerous man from his past takes an unhealthy interest in his present. Claude Boon used to work for the Mossad and might be more than Milton can handle. And then the stakes get even higher....
Salvation Row is the most explosive thriller yet in Mark Dawson's best-selling John Milton series. It's a book no self-respecting suspense fan will want to be without.

What did you like most about Salvation Row?

It was well written and as there has just been a similar incident of Hurricanes in that part of America, very accurate. You were there with them.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Salvation Row?

nothing really it just flowed.


What does David Thorpe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Well he sounds like you imagine John Milton to sound and behave the way you expect, so he for me seems spot on to narrate these books.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No I rarely get that sort immersion from a book... sorry.,. I suppose the best I can manage is pleased when something works out well, or irritated when people behave like idiots.


Any additional comments?

We got stuck in the car for 2 hours in a traffic jam in Bordeaux, and we really didn't mind that much as we had this book playing in the car.

It's ok

As above - it's ok. I tend to use the Milton books as a filler when there's nothing else I've been waiting for.
There's something I just can't quite warm to, to go beyond 'ok'.
Milton just isn't a strong enough character, a bit too robotic and repetitive. There actually nothing to really like about the guy.
I listen to them all keenly enough and will carry on, just think they're 5% character writing short of a great book.
