The first part in the John Milton series. This short story can stand alone, but also helps to build an image of the lead character. Highly recommended.

4stars. Recommended for those who like this genre. This short story is a well written description of a sharpshooter mission into North Korea. There is some internal dialogue but minimal connection on an emotional level with other people. It is very well done but not my preference.

A short novel is a great way to introduce yourself to readers, and it definitely worked in my case. I have a soft spot for fixer type good guys anyway. Great read!

I enjoyed the descriptions of the North Korean city in this book. A very different view of the main character than the one I got in The Driver, the only other book I've read in this series. He is a very effecient killing machine in this story with none of the character interactions he had in The Driver which takes place later in the series.

One Thousand Yards, A John Milton Novella by Mark Dawson is an intriguing story. He thought he had overcome the blackouts but had one on the flight to China. He is also plagued with memories of his nightmares. "He felt off-balance. The dream had passed, leaving tiny gossamer webs of memory that reminded him that he had had it. One thing was for sure: it was bad timing." I gave it four stars. John Milton is sent into North Korea. He has only a sniper rifle and a specific target. Will he be able to accomplish his goal? Or will he be killed as he attempts doing the job? I received a complimentary copy from the author. That did not change my opinion for this review.

In his novella 1000 Yards, Mark Dawson introduces John Milton, a hired killer. In this story, the government sends Milton into North Korea to assassinate members of the Technical Bureau of the Reconnaissance General Bureau. In the process, Mark Dawson assumes different names and must avoid detection by the secret police. The story moves quickly from Milton's entry into North Korea to the end. Will he succeed without getting caught? Mr. Dawson's descriptions of North Korea and the blandness of the country made this story more believable as did his knowledge of weaponry. If you like thrillers and suspense, this is a good read
