Publisher's Summary

John Milton has started to hope that he might have a future.
He has a job driving a taxi around the streets of San Francisco. He has his anonymity and his solitude. Being invisible has become a comfortable habit. He doesn't want to be found.
But when a girl he drives to a party goes missing, Milton is worried. Especially when two dead bodies are discovered, and the police start treating him as their prime suspect. Milton is a fugitive from the British Secret Service, and a man in his position needs extra attention like he needs a hole in the head.
As unpleasant secrets leak out, and the body count rises, one thing is for sure. Milton might just be the right guy in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The Driver is a taut, nail-biting adventure which once again stars Mark Dawson's irresistible hero, the maverick ex-MI6 assassin John Milton. Mark Dawson has worked as a DJ and 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.

He has remained anonymous until a chilling murder draws him out of the shadows. He feels compelled to find the missing girl and the gruesome killer.

Third in series and still can't decide

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes as I don't want to be the only confused listener. I would have to add a warning that it won't distract you from your work.


Would you recommend The Driver to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes as above.


What about David Thorpe’s performance did you like?

Great as normal


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, very easy to start and stop. Not gripping at all.


Any additional comments?

I'm not sure about this Milton series at all. I can't put my finger on the problem, they should have everything and they kind of do but its all mediocre. It's all a bit up and down and all over the place.

Couldn't keep my attention

A reasonable listen and the story was okey but with so much random detail, taking you nowhere and with minimal action, I struggled with my attention constantly wandering off.
