Publisher's Summary

John Milton has started to hope that he might have a future.
He has a job driving a taxi around the streets of San Francisco. He has his anonymity and his solitude. Being invisible has become a comfortable habit. He doesn't want to be found.
But when a girl he drives to a party goes missing, Milton is worried. Especially when two dead bodies are discovered, and the police start treating him as their prime suspect. Milton is a fugitive from the British Secret Service, and a man in his position needs extra attention like he needs a hole in the head.
As unpleasant secrets leak out, and the body count rises, one thing is for sure. Milton might just be the right guy in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The Driver is a taut, nail-biting adventure which once again stars Mark Dawson's irresistible hero, the maverick ex-MI6 assassin John Milton. Mark Dawson has worked as a DJ and 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.

Another good listen

John Milton is Jack Reacher, John Wells, and The Grey Man all rolled into one. David Thorpe also does a great job. He is slowly becoming one of favorite narrators.

You can drive me, John Milton!

John Milton is likable. He is an ex-SAS assassin who got tired of the blood and decided to go straight and only help people out. His home office doesn't want him out there with all his knowledge of procedure and missions and personnel, so they keep sending assassins to kill him, or bring him in. Thus he must be on the run constantly. Milton is also a recovering alcoholic who attends AA meetings but doesn't believe he can ever atone for his sins. In every town he lands in he ends up finding trouble and causing nearly as much as he smooths. In this book, he is looking for a missing hooker he taxied to a "party", and trying to find out who killed the other working girls.

At least in this story, none of his new, short-term friends get offed while John is trying to atone. It is interesting all the way through, and we live for the spec ops skills John brings into play. His newest sometime partner, bounty hunter Bo (or Beau, I don't know) reappears to our delight, even though he can not take the place of the lamented Rutherford from book 1.

The narration constantly amazes me. Thorpe's default voice seems to be that of a slightly nerdy, prissy English prig, but he did the English thugs and druggies superbly in book 1, Mexican drug lords in book 2, and now he does Americans of all accents and social levels. He seems to change height and weight as his voices change.

If you like the genre and the premise, this is a good series.

This series just gets better and better

Any additional comments?

My title says it all. I can't tell you how much these audiobooks have entertained me. I was going through a tough time while I was listening to this book and it actually helped ease things, sounds weird but it really helped me take my mind off things for an hour or so at a time and it was a great form of escapism.

You'll love this. Whatever floats your boat book-genre wise you need to give this a go. I would be surprised if anyone turned around and said they did not enjoy listening to it. It's so refreshing to have such a great series to listen to, especially after the Victor the assassin series I previously finished prior to starting this, a series of books I never wanted to end!

Another Thrilling Masterpiece. I will certainly continue with this eries

My first introduction to John Milton was Book 1 in the series. This was quickly followed by Books 2 and then this one. The masterful narration of David Thorpe brings all the characters to life, which is hard to do when the narrative switches from Male to Female, and from English to American characters. Just as in Saint Death ( book 2) , the main character, John Milton, elicits sympathy and you find yourself warming to the " anti hero" as he battles on to " make amends " . If you want a great read(listen) search no further. Mark Dawson is now a firm favorite of mine, up there with Rachel Abbot, Peter May and Jeffrey Archer.
