Description

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.

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. In this dip into his case files, 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?

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.

Good Story<br />

Very good story, good characters, very entertaining. liking forward to the next book. The main character is very good at his job, gets out of almost impossible situations by knowing how most men will react to situations. Lots of action, and intrigue, very good for a spy type book.

Great start to the John Milton series!

Mark Dawson is a very successful British author who got his start self publishing. 1000 Yards is an Audible Studios produced short story that introduces John Milton to the audiobook audience. It is a great espionage story set mostly in North Korea. There are now a total of 2 short stories and 8 novels in the Milton series. From my perspective the quality has dropped in some of the more recent novels from 5 stars to 4 stars. It is still a wonderful series.

Excellent story but too short

I really enjoyed this short story. The writer was able to put me in the center of the story. The characters were realistic and fully developed. The plot was believable and exciting. I was disappointed that it was not longer because the writer had set the reader up for a roller coaster ride and it ended too quickly. I hope to see more material from this writer.

The reader was also excellent. I had no trouble distinguishing who was who. He accelerated the excitement which added a measure of enjoyment.

Finally a story that is worthy of his skills.

Wading through the John Milton series has been enjoyable but not as good as it can be. This story and 'Tarantula' - both novellas - are better than all the other novels combined. I wish he would give us a few more of the pre-'reformed,' when he was number one novels.

A real adventure!

Couldn't put it down. I really enjoyed the details in the story, and the way it all played out.

What a shot!

This is a very nice little (short story) prequel to The Cleaner. There's not a lot of character development as there is in the longer book, but the operation (kill some major military players in North Korea) is interesting, and his plan to accomplish it clever. No wonder Kim Jong-un is not happy with America! The Korean rebels who help him get around and procure arms are pretty well-rounded characters. This is an enjoyable read if you already like John Milton and just have to have a little more!

Excellent short story, I want more!

Great book, but rather short! The narrator does a bang-up job bringing the story to life! Look forward to the next in the series!

What all the Milton books should be like!

Milton the operative, not the cookie cutter of similar circumstances he’s always drifting into. I’m not one for short stories but this one was the exception

Could only make it through the first 10-15 min.

Was someone reading a bunch of reports, using acronyms,... just not very entertaining. Would not recommend.
