Summary

An assassin haunted by his past. Two young refugees out of their depth and in need of his special talents.
John Milton is no stranger to the world's seedy underbelly. But when the former British secret service agent comes up against a ruthless human trafficking ring, he'll have to fight harder than ever to conquer the evil in his path.
After Milton meets a refugee who lost a sister to people smugglers, he travels through war-torn Libya and the murkiest parts of Italy and France to get the girl back. As enemies watch his every move, Milton confronts a group of Albanian pimps and smugglers so dangerous, they could easily make this mission his last.

As always could not wait to listen.

I listened to it all in one day immersed in the story.
Listened to all of the books in the series and can't wait for the next.

Oh how I wish this were true.

Mark Dawson has a really really good way of storytelling, and this story featuring John Milton is one of the best that I have read because it was simple, but very moving. I really do wish that this was not a novel but actual fact.

If this is your first excursion with John Milton, it shouldn't be. Read the others first but definitely come to this one - it's very enjoyable.

Not Up To Some of the Others In the Series

I have listened to all the John Milton books. Narration is superb. Some of the books are too (Sward of God and Salvation Row for example) others are just ok (The Cleaner, St. Death, Ghosts). This is one that is just ok. There isn't much time spent on developing Milton, he doesn't gain any depth and we don't learn anything new about him. The supporting characters are weak or shallow. The plot is ridiculousness. I don't want to give away the story but Milton doesn't need to traipses around the globe to find the thugs. There isn't much action either. Milton comes across as not very bright which I found to be the case in some of the other novels. There is so much potential with the story line and character but it is squandered. Even as a Milton fan, I would skip this one.

Another Hit by Mark Dawson

I've read several books by this author and this is by far one of his best. The tension grabs the reader at the beginning and doesn't let go. The narrator is great at delivering believable accents.
The story of human trafficking is all too real - the author's knowledge of the pain it causes come through on every page.
I will be listening to this one again!
