He was able to use his special skillset to help those that were not able to defend themselves
23 April 2017
I have returned to re read this book, by the audio rendition. I feel for the character John Milton, who after almost 2 decades of service to Queen and Country, is told me that there is no way he can resign from his position, as the country's no. I government hitman, or Cleaner.
John has had enough of the killing, especially when it concerns innocent children. He is plagued by dreams of different scenes of his life as a hitman, and with the slowing of his body as he has aged, together with the numerous aches from injuries and past broken bones, he knows that he is past his prime. All he wants to do, is walk away. Unfortunately, his Controller feels he's a threat, so sends out men to "retire" him.
John, becomes an aide to someone who is ready to give up on the pressures of life. He realizes that his special skillset may help those being stood over by various bullies in the suburbs. He can still make a difference.
