    1. Another John Milton novella ,this time set in Italy. Again it grabbed me at the beginning and never let go!

    2. An excellent earlier short story of hard drinking Milton doing want he does best, stepping in and cleaning up the mess that the British government has no other satisfactory solution at hand.In this case an agent has already tried and been eliminated. Now Milton has to follow in his dead colleague's steps and avoid being killed.His mission is to go into the very heart of the most feared mafia family in and around Naples and undermine their trade in drugs with a syndicate in Liverpool. Not forgett [...]

    3. REVIEW OF AUDIOBOOK; JANUARY 23, 2018Narrator: David ThorpeI wouldn't have missed anything if I had skipped this and went straight into the series because it didn't give me much background on Milton other than that he used to be in a covert group called '15'. IIRC, Milton is Number 3 and he's sent to Italy to investigate Number 8's death.Once he meets the Comorra head, it's been-there-done-that. IMO, you can pick any novel involving a conversation with a Mafia-type boss, copy, cut and paste it i [...]

    4. Bonus novella at the end of the second John Milton 3-book box set, this serves mainly to illustrate the kind of work he did for Group Fifteen before his conscience got the better of him and he set off on his own path of atonement.Sent to Naples to deal with a mafia assassin who has already taken out one of his colleagues, Milton beats up local thugs, charms a beautiful woman, rides a motorbike, and negotiates with the head honcho to take out a gang of drug dealers. It's very James Bond-y, only 1 [...]

    5. Despite this being a novella, it does complement the John Milton series, but it was one which I felt could have been made into a book in its own right. It comes from the time when Milton was №8 within Group 15, so it gives the reader an extra insight into his background before he became №1. As with the other books this has been well researched and thought out, with good solid characters.Milton has been tasked by Control to investigate the disappearance of №3, whilst he was on assignment in [...]

    6. The second John Milton novella and I have to say that I enjoyed this one more than 1000 Yards. Milton is sent to Italy with the intention of taking down the leader of one of Italy’s most fearsome criminal organisations. Mark Dawson captures Italy brilliantly and it was very easy to visualise the setting that was being described to me. As with 1000 Yards it was exciting to read about an earlier Milton, one that still had his secret job as a Cleaner for the government. Having read the future boo [...]

    7. A good story, fills in some more background info about John Milton.As a short novel or novella, it was about the right length, except when it came to Act 3 the climax was over too quickly. Milton dealt with the bad guys in a way that was too easy and quick, too much like a comic book, without much of a fight. There could have been a fight to death, man-to-man, at the end, between Milton and Tarantula or Milton and the mafia boss.Also at times the descriptions were overly-wordy, too many adjectiv [...]

    8. Tarantula. Mark DawsonA novella with John Milton before he left the covert organization he was employed by. A government assassin. One of the queens best. A problem in Italy that needed to be taken care of. A statement and an example. Betrayal, action this novella has it all!

    9. Awesome ReadOne more well written story. Already getting fond of Milton the way he is potrayed calm composed and always alert. I definitely recommend all the people who love to read action packed thriller should pick up this book and start is now. Hoping for same experience in other books of the series.

    10. 22-2018. Novella from Mr. Dawson. An appetizer about Mr. Milton’s work as a Control agent. Bad guys lose in the end, as you might expect.

    11. Great StorylineAnother excellent short story from Mark. Lots of action and we'll crafted so that I did not want to put it down until I had finished it.

    12. Review at The Book Nympho:thebooknympho/2017/01/thri      This is similar to Jennifer's Read It, Track It where I am reading more "free" books for the COYER Winter Storm ChallengeSimilar to 1000 Yards, Tartantula is another mission from the case file. The character seems much more skilled and confident in this outing. It is just as interesting and nerve-wracking, however. The only noticeable emotion in either novella, from Milton is compassion towards women caught up in the wrong places and [...]

    13. "Meet John Milton. He considers himself an artisan. A craftsman. His trade is murder." In this novella length story we see an earlier version of John Milton. John Milton, paid assassin for the British government. In the other novels about him, he has left that "job" behind.In Tarantula, he revisits a location where a fellow agent was killed. He wants to know how and why, and verify who, although, uppermost, he is to complete the assignment. Milton always finishes his assignments. He is number on [...]

    14. 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. In this second dip into his case files (see 1000 Yards for a further free novella), Milton is sent to Italy to investigate the death of a colleague from Group 15, the secret assassination squad that liquidates those [...]

    15. 3.5 starsThis second prequel novella to the John Milton series has Milton on another mission for the secret missions/assassinations arm of the British government, this time in Italy. The story moves quickly and has a few small twists that keep things interesting. My primary gripe about these prequels is the lack of character development for Milton. He is an assassin who follows orders and has little emotional response to his work save for some occasional nightmares/blackouts. These hint at more [...]

    16. Loved it like all of the other John Milton books. This novella tells of a mission before he became number one in the group of 15. You can't go wrong with this one, read it in any order and it will not affect the series. Mark Dawson definitely has a winner in this character and I hope he keeps him around for a very long time. Since Vince Flynn is gone God bless him And Mitch Rapp is as well, I needed a new action hero and John Milton is it! I now patiently await book #7 Well done Mr. Dawson. A so [...]

    17. I got this book for free on .Just finished the second dipping into early John Milton. Milton is a British assassin assigned to the secretive Group 15 within the British government. In Naples, Italy, Number Three, also an assassin for Group 15, is killed by a mafia hitman known only as Tarantula. Milton's assignment is to infiltrate the Costa Nostra offshoot, eliminate the people responsible for his colleague's death, and escape without a trace.Action-filled and a great look into a less-known maf [...]

    18. Mark Dawson takes readers of the series back to John Milton as #8 in Group 15 before he is forced on go on the run. Control tasks him with investigating the disappearance of #3 on the Italian coast and dispense appropriate Group 15 justice. What's so compelling about this very tightly written short story is the Machiavellian strategy Milton employs to accomplish his objectives. I highly recommend this book because it might very well be the best of the series.

    19. A very good novella for the fans of Dawson's John Milton character. It goes back to the time when Milton was "Number 8" on the assassination team. It also gives the back story to the angel tattoo on Milton's back and shoulders.This is a great addition to the Milton saga and should not be ignored by the readers who have followed Milton's story. It's also a very good place for new readers to jump into the story line, as the timeline places it prior to The Cleaner.

    20. Really enjoyed this book , I love Mark Dawson's character John Milton. this is a novella so it was a nice quick read. It is set in Naples and Mark's descriptive powers are amazing, you got the feel of the streets and the atmosphere of Naples. John Milton was sent to 'take out' a man called Tarantula who was called that because he had a huge tattoo of a tarantula across his face. Gripping storyline and totally unputdownable.Highly recommended.

    21. Great thriller but lacking somethingI really enjoy he John Milton books. I've read most of them and look forward to more. The novellas are fast paced and keep myself interest. I don't have the time to read so the length is perfect. I like to read because I'm gives me a chance to get away. That being said, I do miss the development of the locations which allow me to paint a picture of everything. I am looking forward to the Soho books.

    22. One of the things I enjoy most about the John Milton character is the fact that Mark has saved/created all these back stories that help deepen and reinforce the man he has come to be (and what he is trying to leave behind). The novellas usually won't survive a sitting, as they are too great and too short to put down.

    23. Tarantula: a John Milton novellaNo, this isn't about spiders! The title is named for one of the key characters, who is on the wrong side. Milton is tasked with eliminating everyone who was involved in the death of one of his own, another undercover agent. How that's going to be done, is the best thriller you'll find you've read. Hang on tight, you've going on a wild ride.

    24. Moving on with this John Milton prequel. Good explosives. Bad-ass Sicilian bad guys fall for #8 Milton's ploys. I wish John were real. The world would be a much better place. He's moving up to the dreaded #1 spot fast.

    25. Having read all the John Milton (series) books to date I discovered this book 'Tarantula' by mistake. I'm glad I did and although it was a novella it was pure action from the first page to the last. I hope there will be more novella's and full stories featuring John Milton in 2017.

    26. This was a short novel in the John Milton series and a good read. There are some more books in the series and I'm still finding them entertaining so will continue reading.

    27. I enjoyed this one. Going back into John Milton's history was entertaining. A few typos in the second half of this book, but overall enjoyable.

    28. Another great quick read from Mr. Dawson with our favorite Mr. Milton. Loved the setting and action. Looking forward to Salvation Row.

    29. Starting to like John Milton more and more. Fast paced as if shot out of a gun. The writing is a blast to read and is well grammared. Cudos to Mark Dawson.
