Publisher's Summary

John Milton is trying to make amends for a career spent killing for the British Secret Service. He has a burning need to right wrongs - and rewrite his own bloody past. He finds himself in Louisiana, the Big Sleazy, the bayou, and the post-Katrina wreckage of the Gulf Coast with a debt of honor to repay.

Isadora Bartholomew, who saved his partner's life, needs his help. Joel Babineaux, a ruthless property magnate, is out to sink the charity she established to help rebuild the Lower Ninth Ward.

Just when Milton thinks he has neutralised Babineaux's scheming, a dangerous man from his past takes an unhealthy interest in his present. Claude Boon used to work for the Mossad and might be more than Milton can handle. And then the stakes get even higher....

Salvation Row is the most explosive thriller yet in Mark Dawson's best-selling John Milton series. It's a book no self-respecting suspense fan will want to be without.

    "spookily close to home"
    What did you like most about Salvation Row?

    It was well written and as there has just been a similar incident of Hurricanes in that part of America, very accurate. You were there with them.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Salvation Row?

    nothing really it just flowed.


    What does David Thorpe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Well he sounds like you imagine John Milton to sound and behave the way you expect, so he for me seems spot on to narrate these books.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No I rarely get that sort immersion from a book... sorry.,. I suppose the best I can manage is pleased when something works out well, or irritated when people behave like idiots.


    Any additional comments?

    We got stuck in the car for 2 hours in a traffic jam in Bordeaux, and we really didn't mind that much as we had this book playing in the car.

    "It's ok"

    As above - it's ok. I tend to use the Milton books as a filler when there's nothing else I've been waiting for.
    There's something I just can't quite warm to, to go beyond 'ok'.
    Milton just isn't a strong enough character, a bit too robotic and repetitive. There actually nothing to really like about the guy.
    I listen to them all keenly enough and will carry on, just think they're 5% character writing short of a great book.

    Story
    "An old debt is paid in this John Milton novel."

    I am enjoying listening to the John Milton series of novels. The stories are varied enough, without long drawn out and involved back stories that are the basis of other books in the series. (Yes, there is some but not too much)

    This story has its start when New Orleans is gripped in the clutches of Katrina. John and an associate are caught up in the event and a local family helps them.

    Jump forward ten years and the same local family are now in need of help. Milton steps in.

    Not 5 star but a good easy listening series.

    Really enjoyed this latest addition to the John Milton series. Cinematically written, great characterisation. Mark Dawson never fails to keep me enthralled from the first paragraph to the last.

    "The weakest plot so far - but still excellent"

    David Thorpe's performance saves this from being downright mediocre. The plot is a very ordinary tale spiced up by basing it around New Orleans. Did the series need a psychopathic Israeli? I'm not sure it does to be honest but I've bought the remaining books in the series as they are wonderful for making my commute fly by.

    Bravo David Thorpe -10/10 and 6/10 for Mark Dawson. Must try harder! Please.

    "Always a pleasure"
    Any additional comments?

    You're always guaranteed a good listen with John Milton and this book is no exception. I read the first 5 instalments last year, and was disappointed to find that audible had no more John Milton to offer me. However, I searched again for JM last week and was very happy to see another 5 books have been added onto the audible site!

    This story finds the cool headed JM in a hectic race to survival amidst a natural disaster that occurs in New Orleans. The leading lady also catches his eye, which makes for an interesting romantic addition to the long list of problems already acquired by John.

    Buy this book, it's great fun with action aplenty. You won't be bored.

    "Mark Dawson is my best new author find of 2015"

    The John Milton series consists of 2 novellas and 6 novels. Every on of the 8 books deserves a five star rating. John Milton is a British espionage agent who is trying to leave the agency after years against the wishes of the agency. I wish that Mark Dawson would write more John Milton novels, but that seems unlikely.

    Dawson is a wonderful author.

    "Another hit"

    Dawson has hit his stride. Nothing stops the adrenaline. Fast action, justice prevails, character continues to grow. What more can you ask? Even the reader had better American accents this time out,( pretty bad in earlier reads),
    Intend to read his two other series. All six of these were really enjoyable for action, survival readers. I will say the fifth, Sword of God, was the best to me.

    "Louisiana Hot"

    This book was very good. I would recommend to followers of the John Milton series or those who enjoy David Thorpe or Mark Dawson. Unfortunately, you have to follow the entire John Milton series to gain an appreciation for this book, as you will better understand the character (Milton) that way, inclusive of the history that he references. This book was strong, but it's the introduction of an amazing character named Avi Bachman that really sends this story into overdrive. Avi is awesome!

    "Good story but. ........"

    Good story but the lead female is rather annoying the way she argues about everything that's Milton is doing to help her just so annoying & frustrating. I found myself saying 'oh for god's sake just shut up and just do it'. The narrators American accents especially the female ones again rather disturbing. Lots of room for improvement.

    "Number one?"

    For someone who is supposed to be the 'best' assassin of his day, John Milton is pretty weak. He is continually getting his trash kicked. This is an improvement on the last story. It had some inconsistencies with regards to his characters abilities but I guess it makes his characters more human. The setting is post Katrina Nawlin's which is described well.

    "David Thorpe is one of the best narrators there is"

    David Thorpe is one of the best narrators there is. After listening to "The Cleaner" I thought Mark Dawson's work was excellent. David Thorpe's performance draws you in and his different character voices never leave you wondering who is actually talking. Worth every cent. Looking forward to the next one.

    John Milton back in New Orleans to help out a family that befriended him during Katrina, heads into another action packed adventure. Now he ends up saving their lives, but we would expect nothing less.

    Story
    "Good author crashes and burns."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The entire premise of this book was beyond belief. The characters introduced in this volume, as opposed to those in previous books, were comically distorted and so unrealistic as to be laughable. Mr. Dawson needs to revisit his earlier works and find situations and characters that permit one to listen without becoming nauseous.


    Has Salvation Row turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but it makes me regret buying the next book in this series. I could not finish listening to this book, and I am hesitant to start the next one in the series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I kept waiting for a scene that was enjoyable. I quit listening before I heard one.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disgust. The author attempted to construct a heroine who was a paragon of virtue, industry, dedication and brilliance. His heroine, in fact, was a moron, who created a crisis for no good reason. His villains engage in the most convoluted and obvious conspiracies for no good reason.


    Any additional comments?

    If an author has five stories for his main character, he should avoid trying to write a sixth book.
