Publisher's Summary

A man called Milton walks into town....
On the run from his own demons, John Milton treks through the Michigan wilderness into the town of Truth. He's not looking for trouble, but trouble's looking for him. He finds himself up against a small-town cop who has no idea with whom he is dealing and no idea how dangerous he is.
But Milton is double crossed and badly injured. Unarmed and alone, he flees into the remote Porcupine Mountains with a posse on his tail. His enemies thought they could hunt him down. That was a mistake, and, where Milton is concerned, one mistake is all you get.
From best-selling author Mark Dawson (the John Milton and Beatrix Rose series), The Sword of God is the fifth in the acclaimed series of thrillers that listeners love. 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.

Not as exciting as the first 4 John Milton books.

I am a huge fan of Mark Dawson's books, both the John Milton Series and the Beatrix Rose series. Sword of God is quite good, but not as good as the four prior books in the John Milton series or any of the books in the Beatrix Rose series.

Cartoonish, Clichéd, Poorly Written Rehashed Plot

I, in some sort of attempt to allow Dawson to mature as a writer, lumbered through 5 of his 'books'. Along with hearing the repeated use of hackneyed cliches ('chicken lips!), these books have the sound and feel of cartoon plots. There is no flow to the stories as if the parts were taken off a shelf in an elementary writing class.
They are flatter than 'chicken lips' and any tension is nonexistent.
Save your credits.

Good storyline

I found this book enjoyable and well read. It's scary to think that these kinds of fanatical people do exist. Good characters and an interesting storyline. I like Milton and am keen to read more Mark Dawson books, despite some bad reviews I read that nearly put me off listening to any of his books!
