This review is from: Subpoena Colada (Kindle Edition)
After reading Dawson's 'The Black Mile' and loving it, I thought I'd try out his other books. Subpoena Colada is a totally different genre, but one which he seems to have researched equally as well.

Like 'The Black Mile', I couldn't put this down and I ended up reading until the sun came up.

Give it a go!

If you like who-dun-its, you'll love this; if you like action novels, you'll love this, too. Just a great read. Fast paced and easily readable. Milton is an intriguing character, a man with a bloody past and a troubled conscience who wants to atone for the things that he has done. What Dawson has done - very cleverly - is to take a traditional, Bond-like character and drop him into a completely alien world. The scenes in the East End are superbly done and have a real tang of authenticity about them. The language feels right, the characters are all believable and setting the conclusion amid the riots of 2011 is a great touch. Really highly recommended.

Mark Dawson has created a wonderful character in John Milton. I was not disappointed in the first book in the series, The Cleaner, and this short novella is just as good. An excellent read if you like a tough guy on the right side of the law. Milton is seriously cool. I like his style.

Dawson transports you back to 1940's Soho, painting a detailed and fascinating picture of what life was like during the blitz. Then he throws a serial killer into the mix and things get really interesting.

He moves effortlessly between characters, making you both love and hate them all, depending on who you spend each chapter with. As the mystery deepens, the bombings intensify, right up until he pulls the rug out from under your feet with a few unexpected twists.

It's a long time since I read right through the night, but it was well worth turning up tired at work for!

Definitely an author to watch...
