Publisher's Summary

John Milton is a ghost. He was Number One. The most dangerous assassin in Group Fifteen, the black-ops organisation that solves problems when diplomacy has failed. Now Milton is Her Majesty's most wanted fugitive - an anonymous loner with a deadly set of skills.
So when he is arrested following a brawl in a Texas bar, the last person he expects to bail him out is a glamorous operative from the Russian Secret Service.
Milton is blackmailed into finding his predecessor as Number One. But she's a ghost, too, and just as dangerous as him. He finds himself in deep trouble, playing the Russians against the British in a desperate attempt to save the life of his oldest friend. Some ghosts are better left alone. But these two have been disturbed, and now there's going to be hell to pay.
Mark Dawson has worked as a 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.

Upcoming Audible releases

The John Milton series by Mark Dawson is excellent, but that not why I'm writing this review. The summer releases of new thriller novels by the best authors has already begun with Brad Thor's release this week. Since I always preorder those that most interest me (and a few other flyers), I'm going to list what I consider to be the best upcoming thrillers by date and author. I have all of these on preorder now.

June 21 The Traitor's Story by Kevin Wignall (stand alone)
June 21 The Pursuit by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg with
Scott Brick narrating (Fox & O'Hare series)
June 28 First Strike by Ben Coes (Dewey Andras series)
June 28 Ghosts of War by Brad Taylor (Pike Logan & Jennifer Cahill)
July 12 The Black Widow by Daniel Silva (Gabriel Allon series)
July 12 Ghost Sniper by Scott McEwen (Sniper Elite series)
August 1 The Jungle by Mark Dawson (John Milton series)
August 16 Rise the Dark by Michael Koryta (stand alone)
August 30 A Great Reckoning by Louise Perry (Gamache series)

I'll add that on October 11 the next Mitch Rapp series book Order to Kill by Kyle Mills will be released. I miss Vince Flynn, but Mills did a fine with the last book. It is available for preorder.

For those, including me, who cannot wait for the next Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child it is not yet available for preorder at Audible but the title is Night School and will be released on November 7.

If you are looking for a good author to try late in July Australian Liane Moriarty releases Truly Madly Guilty. It is available for preorder at Audible. Release is July 26. Expect fun, not intense suspense.

Finally, it's not yet available for preorder at Audible but Mark Greaney will release Tom Clancy: True Faith and Allegiance (Ryan Jr. series) on December 6.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"


I was caught by the characters and the story line though trite,(how many times can you rescue folks?), moved very well.
