1000 Yards (John Milton #0.5) by Mark Dawson

John Milton is a highly skilled assassin in the employ of The British government. He travels the world on missions, like James Bond but with more murder and fewer cocktails. In this novella, he has to take out five targets in North Korea, not the easiest place to travel unseen and unnoticed. He immediately attracts unwanted attention and follows a strict plan to get the job done. We get a hint of the demons he carries alongside as his slightly flawed character shows his weaknesses.

I read book one before I read this little entrée, but it didn’t seem to matter, if anything I enjoyed the story more because I already knew the character and had formed an emotional investment in him. The author has a real skill with suspense building and I can only imagine how much research goes into his books, they are authentic and detailed. This is a good introduction to the series but I can only say that things get better. If you like British thrillers then don’t miss out on this free novella, you will not be disappointed.1000 Yards
