My taste isn't entirely high-brow literature, I quite like Lee Child when the story-line isn't too outrageous and The Cleaner is plotted decently, with some plausible characters. A good holiday read.
Be warned though that the writing is fairly atrocious, out of the 'it was a dark and stormy night' mould. Before the end of the first page I had had quite enough of 'mountain rills gurgling' and 'birds chirruping' and a variety of tautologous sentences. Here is one, "It was a nondescript hire car; he had chosen it because it was unremarkable." Yup, that is what nondescript means sure enough, glad to have that sorted out safely.
 When is amazon.co.UK going to enable UK English as the default for spell-checking? Is that too technical to get right?
In Milton, Mark Dawson has created a charismatic but troubled man trying to run away from a relentless past which will not let him go. And neither will his erstwhile employers. The book is exciting, well crafted and both the characters and places are fully developed with a light touch. I have to confess, I am a fan of this author, from his betrayed heroine of the Beatrix Rose series to the escalating drug chaos of the young lawyer in Subpoena Colada but , for me, Milton is his best creation yet.
I can wholeheartedly recommend this book.
Number 12 who was supposed to be following him hardly appeared in the story, only at the end. Pointless.
Without wanting to give too much away, there were innocent people shot that he should have been able to protect. The story is based on Ellijah but you get to the end and what has happened to him and his mother?
Not a very well thought out book at all. Disappointed that I paid for it.
Reminded me very loosely of Jack Reacher as others have said but Milton is more humanized.
A man trying to right the wrongs he's committed. With plenty of violence and twists it's gripping read.
My only problem with it is there was no conclusion of the story of a certain character. Not even in the epilogue.
I suppose you, the reader decides but seems to me a bit of a loose end.
Everyone should read this series of books.
