From Amazon number-one best-selling author Mark Dawson, this novella is an introduction to John Milton, the most dangerous assassin in the pay of Her Majesty’s government. Meet John Milton. 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.
I bought this book because of the title. I needed to go to the places that scare me. It turned out to be a wonderful guide to fearlessness by an American Buddhist nun. All of her books are just as insightful.
Eight Million Ways to Die (Matthew Scudder) by Lawrence Block I've yet to read any of these pulpy dick fic books. But word is that this is where the "series" finds it's stride. There will never be any replacing Chandler's Marlowe for me, but I'm willing to run through other hard boiled priviate eyes looking for a little piece of that magic.
