He considers himself an artisan. A craftsman. His trade is murder.
Milton is the man the government sends after you when everything else has failed. Ruthless. Brilliant. Anonymous. Lethal. You wouldn't pick him out of a crowd but you wouldn't want to be on his list. But now, after ten years, he's had enough - there's blood on his hands and he wants out. Trouble is, this job is not one you can just walk away from.
He goes on the run, seeking atonement for his sins by helping the people he meets along the way. But his past cannot be easily forgotten and before long it is Milton who is hunted, and not the hunter.
This 17,000 word novella is an introduction to John Milton, the most dangerous assassin in the pay of Her Majesty's government.
Milton is sent into North Korea. With nothing but a sniper rifle, bad intentions and a very particular target, will Milton be able to take on the secret police of the most dangerous failed state on the planet?
What I liked: This will be a down and dirty review as the book, 1000 Yards is a novella. As the reader, I don't feel too comfortable talking about the plot too much because yeah, spoilers.
With a large number of books being released in Contemporary Romance, Paranormal Romance, and Young Adult, I'm dying to find a book to keep my interest. I love Urban Fantasy, Fantasy, and Romantic Suspense. I've not found any new authors in those categories to read. So, here I sit waiting for my favorite authors to release new books. I've always had a soft spot for thrillers and suspense when well written and plotted.
I was looking at all the different "free" titles I had on my Kindle and this one caught my attention. I started 1000 Yards and didn't stop until the very last page. I was hooked. I'm currently reading the first full length novel in the John Milton series, The Cleaner.
1000 Yards is creative, paced just right and doesn't give you a chance to put it down. I loved the hero, John Milton and in this book, you only get a little taste of his character. It was enough for me.
What I didn't like: At first I thought I wanted "more" but of what I didn't know. More back story, more on the other characters, or something. Then I thought, Mr Dawson has given me just enough to want to continue the series so basically, I'd have enough.
Interested in thrillers or suspense novels, try 1000 Yards and I think you'll be hooked too!!
