Sword of God by Mark Dawson

sword of godBlurb from goodreads.com, please scroll down for my review.

John Milton has blood on his conscience.
He was an assassin for the British government for a decade until he got out. He treks into the Michigan wilderness for the solitude he needs to forget his guilt. He isn’t looking for trouble, but trouble always seems to come looking for him.
Morten Lundquist, a man with his own dark secrets, is a deputy in the town of Truth. He finds himself investigating Milton, but Lundquist has no idea how dangerous his quarry is.
Double crossed and badly injured, Milton flees into the remote Porcupine Mountains with a posse on his tail. His enemies thought that they could hunt him down. They were wrong – and where John Milton is concerned, there are no second chances.

My review

Thanks Mark for the book.

This is the 5th book in the John Milton series, and what a thriller, it is non stop from the very beginning, full of action and fast paced.

Although this is the 5th in the series it can be read as a standalone, there is enough background information. The characters are well thought out.

John Milton is back, this time spending some time minding his own business, but he can´t seem to stay out of trouble and get caught up helping some people out.

This is a well written novel, the author has done a good job in his knowledge of the area covered.

This is one of those books you won´t want to put down, you will want to turn each page to find out what is going to happen next, it is full of surprises.

It reminded me a little of the Rambo films, but loads of readers won´t have seen those films so they will be new to them.

About the Author
Mark Dawson was born in Lowestoft, in the UK. He has worked as a DJ, a door-to-door ice cream seller, factory hand and club promoter. He eventually trained as a lawyer and worked for ten years in the City of London and Soho, firstly pursuing money launderers around the world and then acting for celebrities suing newspapers for libel. He currently works in the London film industry.

He is presently writing two series.

The John Milton books involve a disgruntled British assassin who is trying – without much success – to put his past behind him. In order to atone for the blood on his hands he has decided to help those in need. The first full length novel in the series, The Cleaner, sees Milton struggle to adapt to life amongst the gangs of East London during the riots of the summer of 2012. The Cleaner, and the other books in the series, have all been best-sellers in their categories at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

The Soho Noir books, beginning with The Black Mile and continuing with The Imposter, follow the glitz and glamour of criminal life in London’s West End from the 1940s to the present day. The Imposter picks up the nefarious goings on of the Costello crime family and a protagonist who is rather more than meets the eye. Think of The Sopranos set in Soho and you’ll be on the right track. This series, too, has been downloaded tens of thousands of times.

Mark lives in Wiltshire with his wife and two young children, plus a dog and two cats.
