Summary

A man called Milton walks into town....
On the run from his own demons, John Milton treks through the Michigan wilderness into the town of Truth. He's not looking for trouble, but trouble's looking for him. He finds himself up against a small-town cop who has no idea with whom he is dealing and no idea how dangerous he is.
But Milton is double crossed and badly injured. Unarmed and alone, he flees into the remote Porcupine Mountains with a posse on his tail. His enemies thought they could hunt him down. That was a mistake, and, where Milton is concerned, one mistake is all you get.
From best-selling author Mark Dawson (the John Milton and Beatrix Rose series), The Sword of God is the fifth in the acclaimed series of thrillers that listeners love. 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.

another good listen

Would you listen to The Sword of God again? Why?

I never mind listening to books again because things drop into place the 2nd time round that you missed the significance of at the first listening

Who was your favorite character and why?

well John Milton of course... even though you wouldn't want to cross him...

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

I think he is one of the best narrators for this genre. He sounds like an ex squaddie, and I can visualise all the characters he does. You never get them mixed up.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

John Milton returns

Any additional comments?

I know these books are somewhat formulaic, but I still enjoy them.

I'm Over John Milton

What will your next listen be?

The Power and patiently awaiting the next Department Q.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I now know how to light a fire in the rain.

Any additional comments?

I started off enjoying this series but by Book 5, John Milton has outstayed his welcome. It feels like the author read an outdoor survival guide and transcribed it word for word into this novel.

If the extraneous narrative was removed, this book would be one quarter of the size.

Farewell John Milton. It was nice knowing you for a while but we’re done.

Not as exciting as the first 4 John Milton books.

I am a huge fan of Mark Dawson's books, both the John Milton Series and the Beatrix Rose series. Sword of God is quite good, but not as good as the four prior books in the John Milton series or any of the books in the Beatrix Rose series.

Cartoonish, Clichéd, Poorly Written Rehashed Plot

I, in some sort of attempt to allow Dawson to mature as a writer, lumbered through 5 of his 'books'. Along with hearing the repeated use of hackneyed cliches ('chicken lips!), these books have the sound and feel of cartoon plots. There is no flow to the stories as if the parts were taken off a shelf in an elementary writing class.
They are flatter than 'chicken lips' and any tension is nonexistent.
Save your credits.
