Overview

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.

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.

The Cleaner

A career of state-sanctioned murder has taken its toll. Milton is troubled by nightmares, a long line of ghosts who torment his dreams. He resolves to make his next job his last and, then, perhaps, he can start to make amends for everything that he has done.

Sharon Warriner is a single mother in the East End of London, suicidal with fear that she's lost her young son to a life in the gangs. After Milton saves her life, he promises to help. But the gang, and the charismatic rapper who leads it, is not about to cooperate with him.

As London burns through summer riots, Milton finds himself in unfamiliar territory, dealing with an unfamiliar foe. And when his employer sends another agent after him, the odds against him are stacked even higher.

I enjoyed this fast paced book tremendously. I have always enjoyed characters like John Milton & James Bond with their special skills that back up their macho bravado, willing to meet danger head on.

This book left me hanging. The ending is like a cliffhanger and your like "What". The basic storyline is good but just a little too ghetto for me.

I liked the book even though I felt something was missing. Also everyone that I came close to liking as a character died or was irrevokably scarred, with the exception of JaJa.

We have a thing... its called '100 pages' if a book hasn't pulled you in by 100 pages, it probably isn't going to. I gave it 103 pages and bailed. It just kept plodding along... much too tedious for me.

Great book and hard to put down. The main character is really James Bondish.

Story line seemed a little cliche in the beginning and disappointing in the end

I enjoyed this book even tho it didn't completely hold my attention for the duration. Once again a British author who uses British lingo so if you're not a Brit keep that in mind. Good storyline and action pieces.

Great book. It was so easy to dive into the book and immediately feel like you knew the character. I have read the first 2 books in the series and will definitely be reading the rest of them. It was hard to put it down, I just wanted to keep reading it.

The story line was good. It was difficult to make out some of the British Slang words.
