  • Continuing in my read of the John Milton series, this being #4. As I noted in my review of Beatrix Rose (#1 in that series) one almost has to read the two series concurrently in order to keep the relationships of the characters straight. They are as much about the interactions of the assorted assassins employed by a secret British government agency, in this case one that has been taken over by “Control” and used for his own purposes. That results in the disaffection of several of the best ag [...]


  • Audiobook - 7:32 hours - Narrator: David Thorpe 4.0 out of 5.0 starsJohn Milton, the former "Number One" assassin of a highly secret British organisation, is arrested after a bar brawl and is rescued by beautiful Russian agent (cliché much?). He is then blackmailed into trying to save the life his closest friend from "back in the the day" who is in the hands of the Russian Secret Service. Milton recruits hard-to-find Beatrix Rose, a former "Number One" and off they go to Russia. It's a good sto [...]


  • In case you haven’t read any of my reviews for Mark Dawson’s John Milton series, it is fast becoming one of my absolute favourite series and that has only been proven further with Ghosts. My only issue being that it was shorter than the other main novels and so finished sooner than I would have liked. That said, it was a brilliant and gripping story. Milton is on the run from his former boss, the British government and ‘Control’ is still after him. After a flashback opening we see Milton [...]


  • Ghosts is the 4th installment in the John Milton Series and perhaps the most telling so far. Mark Dawson really opens up about the past of Milton. From Texas to Russia, Milton is on the trail. We are also greeted by the lovely and dangerous Beatrix Rose (another series by Dawson to check out). If you are in search of long books with “filler material” to meet a certain weight, look elsewhere. Milton is an exciting yet mysterious character that will undoubtedly provide for many more creative y [...]


  • Definitely the best in this series so far, this begins by introducing the heroine of his other series, Beatrix Rose, whose books I will be reading soon. She was Milton's mentor, number One in the group of covert assassins for the British government when he started working for them, but things go wrong on his first mission, and she is forced to disappear when Control turns against her.Eight years later, a sexy Russian agent (cliche much?) rescues Milton from a Texan jail and persuades him to come [...]



  • Another great spy/action thriller by Mark Dawson. I started this book immediately on the heels of(the 2nd of 3 Beatrix Rose stories). Before I finished the Rose trilogy, I wanted to read about her first appearance. I enjoyed both books and to tell you the truth, I have liked all the Dawson books I have read. John Milton is a pretty cool guy who is experienced in the cold world of government assassins. While this book serves to introduce us readers to Rose and her quest for vengeance, it also see [...]


  • This was book №4 in the John Milton series, and to my mind it has been the best one, so far. Each book seems to have improved on the previous one, and with this one the reader gets to find out more about Milton's past. Including when he first started working for The Group, as their №12, the reader is also introduced to his mentor, Beatrix Rose (then №1). This tale spans the globe, from a bar fight in Texas, through Russia and Hong Kong, and then a brush with England.Everything seems to gel [...]


  • Book number #4 and the best so far, with action in London, America, Hong Kong and Russia this was truly an international thriller with a kind of James Bond feeling about it. Milton brings Jason Bourne's intensity mixed with Jack Reacher's sense of self reliance to the table, but adds in vulnerability and a burning desire to atone for past deeds.fast paced, with great action sequences MD still manages to pack in enough detail to keep the book feeling real (especially liked the Halo jump scene ) W [...]


  • This novel starts out in London, as a prequel to when John Milton was on his first assignment for Control. Very fast paced read with very little unnecessary prose. Dawson integrates the back story, for the new to the series readers, in way that does not really bore those who have followed Milton from the beginning.From my standpoint, this was a return to what made me get involved in this series. I really wasn’t all that enthused with The Driver, immediately preceding Ghosts in the series. The [...]


  • Absolutely Great!I continue to be amazed at Dawson. This series is one of the best that I have ever had the pleasure to read. The plots, characters, twists, geography, culture, action, etc are some of the best I have ever encountered. This is not writing for a quick easy read. It is easy to read, but is filled with tidbits and teasers of info, threads, etc. that keep a good reader engaged. I am so hooked!!


  • Great read bring on #5can't wait for the next installment. needs a little proofread help there are some botched areas. action packed and a fun read.



  • Another good one in the series and I enjoyed the introduction of characters from the "back story". As always, a little predictable but fun to read.



  • This is one of the BEST books that I’ve readI am an avid reader. I confess that I love series and mostly because I enjoy bonding and remembering the characters. Sometimes when you are a reader you get confused or plain forget. The characters merge into someone you’ve read in the past. I have asked my sisters and our beloved mother had said same. John Milton is unforgettable. He is not perfect. He is not the average lead, glamorous, do-gooder. John is helping those who have no hope. Those tha [...]


  • A solid John Milton story I should have taken notes. There were a few times when having a British author writing American dialogue just doesn't work. Geography is another minor issue. Examples: very rarely, if ever, have I heard an American say that they would get something sorted other than maybe their socks in their sock drawer. If there's a problem, we fix it, handle it, take care of it, or resolve it. Almost never do we sort it - unless we watch too many imported shows on BBC-America or Netf [...]


  • Sympathy for the Devil?Why do I feel sympathy for a retired super assassin with over one hundred victims? I can only blame the skill of Mark Dawson in creating such a flawed character, crippled with guilt at what he once was and the harm that he has done, that you actually find yourself hoping that John Milton does find the peace and salvation that he seeks. As Milton journeys through the world in an effort to find peace, always pursued by the colleagues that he left behind, he attracts the kind [...]


  • Ghosts. Mark DawsonGhosts, Milton's past, back to haunt him or even the score. His old boss "control" still wants him dead, but Milton holds all the cards. Controls past. One last mission to Russia and a clean slate. Milton doesn't trust him A superb read! A classic action packed thriller!! Enjoyed tremendously!!


  • Best of the 3 Books I've read in this series. It brought some resolution of the other books. It's a good stopping point for me. This book was worth the read. You would need some knowledge of earlier books to understand this one though.


  • Milton gets the chance to settle some old debtsYou can never accuse Dawson of not thinking big. Milton goes from a BFE, Texas jail to international complexities. Nice book, a little choppy in places with some of the players being too trusting; but nevertheless an engaging read.


  • Excellent plot.Fast moving, easy to fallow. Kept my interest. Just enough character development with out redundancy.Nice lead in to next book for Rose.



  • GhostsFast easy reading entertaining good for a rainy afternoon page turning and Well written too I bought all of them



  • 15-2018. Mr Milton again is called upon to right some wrongs, trying to trust various people, and rescuing folks. Dependable, but not quite as interesting as some of the other installments.


  • This is the 4th book in the John Milton series. I enjoyed it as much as the first three and will continue to read the next books in the series.
