Another man who can handle himself in a crisis.
on 24 June 2017
Have enjoyed some mancho men in the past, Jack Reacher (Lee Child), Harry Bosch (Michael Connelly), Agent Pendergast (Douglas Preston/Lincoln Child) and Spenser and Hawk (Robert B Parker)comes to mind, but John Milton is in the same class or could even be better. An English SAS soldier, who had wanted to gracefully retire, but due to the nature of the work that he had been doing for Her Majesty's government, retirement meant being put down. Not a very nice thing for someone as loyal and who had cleaned up the problems of his employer for the previous 10 years.
So, he did what they had trained him to do, he melted into the background, only surfacing when his " helping hand" was picked up by media and his cover was blown. John Milton is now trying to make amends for the 150 lives he had previously taken. He was not able to help those poor souls, but he put his talents to helping those,that were unable to help themselves.
I have enjoyed these books and intend on purchasing more of this series.
