Description

From number 1 best-selling author MARK DAWSON, this 17,000 word novella is an introduction to John Milton, the most dangerous assassin in the pay of Her Majesty’s government.

MEET JOHN MILTON

He considers himself an artisan. A craftsman. His trade is murder.

Milton is the man the government sends after you when everything else has failed. Ruthless. Brilliant. Anonymous. Lethal. You wouldn't pick him out of a crowd but you wouldn't want to be on his list. But now, after ten years, he's had enough - there's blood on his hands and he wants out. Trouble is, this job is not one you can just walk away from.

In this dip into his case files, Milton is sent into North Korea. With nothing but a sniper rifle, bad intentions and a very particular target, will Milton be able to take on the secret police of the most dangerous failed state on the planet?

    The story is tight and suspenseful, although another page or to for an after action review would be great. A wonderful read!

    This was a great book. I was sucked into the story the minute I started reading. I only wish it was a little longer! If you like military/spy books, this is a must read!

    Mark Dawson's books are a great read! Until recently I have not had the pleasure of reading any of Marks work. As an avid reader of this genre I found each and every one to be well written, interesting, And hard to put down. Take a chance. They are well worth it. Doug McKean Salt Lake City, Utah
