About the Author

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. Mark lives in Wiltshire with his family. He is currently writing two series. The John Milton series features a disgruntled assassin who aims to help people to make amends for the blood on his hands. Soho Noir is set in the West End of London between 1940 and 1970. The first book in the series, "The Black Mile", deals with the (real life but little known) serial killer who operated in the area during the Blitz. "The Imposter" traces the journey of a criminal family through the period; it has been compared to The Sopranos in austerity London.

I have read all the series so far and the character keeps getting better...ok you may think this is a little hokey that an agent starts shedding his armour after an outbreak of guilt taps him on the shoulder...but no me. THIS for me is what changes the series from a page tuner on a cloudy Sunday with a mug of tea to something I actively wanted to read...I won't give the plot away but I thoroughly enjoyed the story, the betrayal and character...gritty and sadly believable.... I am no expert but there are undoubtedly men and women out there int he armed services or intelligence whom ya recognise some of the moral file mans of the characters.

Great book

The best John Milton that I have read so far. Excellent characters well fleshed out superbly atmospheric and a very credible plot. Pace keeps you turning the pages and whilst some may suggest that these series become rather formulaic if its a good formula so what and it does enable you to "get to know the protagonist". Think of the Barney Thompson series or the works of author Dick Francis. This was an excellent read and I have now bought the boxed set books 4 - 6.

I've had the absolute pleasure of reading all four of Mark Dawson's character novels featuring John Milton and this, without doubt, is his best piece of work to date - in my humble opinion. If you read the four books, you get a really rich idea of how the character has developed over the series so far with a real feel for who John Milton is and what is believable in his world. And so, when situations arise, it's not a total surprise to find him in the middle of it all.

In this book, Milton is again working in jobs that generally pay cash in hand and gets into all kinds of bother. Starting when he takes a booking to drive a 'customer' to a party. A quick relationship is struck up with the customer over the duration of the ride and this becomes the main thread throughout the book. A well developed and crafted storyline then ensues taking Milton deep into mafia-esk circles where he once again shows his strength of character but also his morals.

I especially love the way in which Mark Dawson weaves characters from previous books into this storyline, again in a very believable way - very clever indeed.

This is a fast, pacey book which readers will struggle to put down, especially if they have been following Milton from the start, but this book also stands alone as a cracking good read. I would recommend this book, and the series to date, to anyone who reads this genre usually but also those whose usual genre isn't crime thriller and that are looking for a different type of book.

I literally can't wait for the next one to come on the market. I always really look forward to reading how the author skilfully incepts John Milton into the next book.

Although a good read in its own right I think I actually preferred the previous book Saint Death.
Not to say there was anything paticularly wrong with The Driver, it just meandered somewhat, in addition to the main plot (which was good enough on its own) there were additions that felt unnecessary and one that just felt plain tagged on.
That being said the action was clean, clear brisk and brutal with an ingenious use of a microwave! (filing that away incase I should ever need it!) A clever central plot, with a bad guy that is pretty damn loathsome made this once again a solid read!

I am a big fan of Mark Dawson .... His John Milton Books continue to hold the suspense and even though you know it is a series one still wonders whether the primary characters will succeed in their quest or even survive!. No Spoilers from me.
One GREAT plus Mark - keep giving each story a proper ending as you do now..... I don't mind any hooks to future novels but please please make sure each book has a beginning a middle and an end..... unlike most of today's modern writers it seems in their efforts to sell their wares.

Loosely based on the Gilco beach murders, (look it up) this is another highly satisfying outing for John Milton. While some reviewers have liked it less than others in the series, I liked the fact there was less emphasis on Milton as a fighting machine and more on his character and intelligence in solving the mystery of the missing girl.

It's well plotted, delivered with Mark Dawson's usual great pace and story telling. Recommended.

Love the character and the way he has been established and the way he is moving forward in the stories The author has hit upon a great idea and John Milton can indeed be called the English version of dare I say it Jack Reacher. Well worth reading the series from the beginning as you will then get to know and understand the reasons that Milton is travelling and also his reasons for trying to help others to pay for his sins so to speak.

The author brings well drawn and crafted characters into the story and the plot lines are clever and believable.This really should be made into a film or TV series as it is very cinematic in style and I imagine that is the way that the John Milton character will go forward in future books. A very good author and a wonderful written series of books so far. If you haven't read Mark Dawson yet then you are missing out..
