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

Seems silly to do a review as I have fast become a John Milton fan. I love the character and he just gets better as Mark Dawson develops him. Very difficult to stop reading.Published 2 months ago by Dionysuss
Loses the usual pace because it's padded out with far too much Alcoholics Anonymous. Still worth a read, but far from the best John Milton.Published 2 months ago by John Lorimer
I'm always impressed with the attention to detail in Mark Dawson's novels. You really get a sense of place as he describes the location, the weather, even the actual streets. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Plumicus
