The John Milton series consists of 2 novellas and 6 novels. Every on of the 8 books deserves a five star rating. John Milton is a British espionage agent who is trying to leave the agency after years against the wishes of the agency. I wish that Mark Dawson would write more John Milton novels, but that seems unlikely.
Dawson is a wonderful author.

This book was very good. I would recommend to followers of the John Milton series or those who enjoy David Thorpe or Mark Dawson. Unfortunately, you have to follow the entire John Milton series to gain an appreciation for this book, as you will better understand the character (Milton) that way, inclusive of the history that he references. This book was strong, but it's the introduction of an amazing character named Avi Bachman that really sends this story into overdrive. Avi is awesome!

Mark Dawson has created a super hero in John Milton and although some of the action takes place in USA in recent books, JM is definitely English which makes him really essential listening. I think Salvation Row is the best one yet strong story, great twists and turns, gripping stuff all immaculately brought to life by the brilliant reading and voices of David Thorpe. Thank you Mark and David for such pleasure.
What did you like most about Salvation Row?
It was well written and as there has just been a similar incident of Hurricanes in that part of America, very accurate. You were there with them.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Salvation Row?
nothing really it just flowed.
What does David Thorpe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Well he sounds like you imagine John Milton to sound and behave the way you expect, so he for me seems spot on to narrate these books.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No I rarely get that sort immersion from a book... sorry.,. I suppose the best I can manage is pleased when something works out well, or irritated when people behave like idiots.
Any additional comments?
We got stuck in the car for 2 hours in a traffic jam in Bordeaux, and we really didn't mind that much as we had this book playing in the car.
