Publisher's Summary

Bury your enemies, and bury them deep.

John Milton thought he was done with Avi Bachman. The most dangerous man he's ever known has been incarcerated in Angola, the brutal Louisiana prison. Inmates rarely leave Angola. Once you go in, the only way out is in a box. But Bachman is no ordinary prisoner. He was an assassin for the Mossad, and he has favours to call in.

Milton is in the Australian outback with an old friend and his flirtatious kid sister, looking for a summer’s peace to put his troubled mind to rest. But Bachman has other plans. He thinks that Milton killed his wife, and now he wants revenge.

From Australia to Israel, from Hong Kong to Croatia, here is the conclusion of this brutal chapter in Milton’s life. The two headhunters are on a collision course, and only one of them will walk away. Don’t start this audiobook in bed - you will lose sleep.

Mark Dawson has worked as a lawyer and currently works in the London film industry. His first books, The Art of Falling Apart and Subpoena Colada have been published in multiple languages. He is currently writing three series.

The John Milton series features a disgruntled assassin who aims to help people make amends for the things he has done.

The Beatrix Rose series features the headlong fight for justice of a wronged mother - who happens to be an assassin - against the six names on her kill list.

Soho Noir is set in the West End of London between 1940 and 1970. The first book in the series, The Black Mile, deals with the (real-life but little-known) serial killer who operated in the area during the Blitz. The Imposter traces the journey of a criminal family through the period; it has been compared to The Sopranos in austerity London.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Waltzing Matilda!"

    In Mark Dawson's just released John Milton Book 7, an Aussie lass named Matilda plays a major part. The fight between Milton and rogue ex-Mossad super agent Avi Backman that began in Book 5 finally comes to a conclusion. I love Dawson's John Milton series, his Beatrix Rose series, and the recently begun Isabella Rose series. Headhunters does not disappoint. The one criticism I have of the audiobook is that it is too wordy; it should have been 8 hours rather than 11.5 hours. Mark Dawson writes great thrillers!

    VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! But listen to the earlier books first.

    "They never listen"

    Dawson follows the template for a story. Bad guy gets girl. Good guy rescues girl. Good guy goes after bad guy. Girl wants to help. Good guy tells girl to stay out of the way. Girl doesn't listen. Girl creates more problems than help. Girl needs rescuing again....get it.

    "Not my favorite"

    I love this series, but this is my least favorite so far. My two problems: The premise for John Milton's being in Australia was thin; Matilda was extremely annoying. Maybe just too many unappealing characters, and bratty Mattie was just too much. I loved the hacker and his contribution, though, despite his whining.

    "John makes them wish a dingo ate their baby!"

    Mark Dawson does it again. John Milton makes me waste has as I listen in my car and can turn him off. Spanning half the globe Milton goes from hunted to Hunter. Having the big brass ones to walk alone right into.............. No you listen for yourself I won't spoil anything.

    thanks for another great on Mark.

    "Very Good Book
    "

    Very Good story line, characters are coming into their own. Reminds me of David Baldacci novels, on this time it is a British Spy, and Milton is constrained to the United States. Can't wait for the next entry.

    "Another winner"

    I think the comparison with Jack Reacher is unwarranted John Milton is definitely his own man and although there are obvious parallels their differences are what make the characters who they are.

    This book takes you on a journey of thought and distance and leave you with a smile and many questions. Can't wait for the next one - keep em coming.

    "another winner from Dawson."


    Mark Dawson keeps delivering the goods. believable characters. sinister villains. thoroughly absorbing plots. this book and the previous one show Milton as not some superhuman who can't be beaten. will he beat his nemesis? edge of the seat stuff. the only disappointment is that I'm now onto the last book in the series. Not a weak story among them.

    Story
    "This is where Milton meets his match"
    Would you listen to Headhunters again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to Head Hunters again, but I'd first listen to Salvation Row because that's where the story begins


    What other book might you compare Headhunters to, and why?

    I' compare this to Salvation Row only because Head Hunters is the second part of the story


    Have you listened to any of David Thorpe’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I've only listened to David Thorpe performances of John Milton and he's spot-on every time, his voices and the way he reads the story is excellant


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There was more than one moment that moved me, When Milton is telling Matilda who he really was, the fights between Milton and Bachman and when Milton goes back to Australia to see Matilda one more time, I wished they could've stayed together


    Any additional comments?

    Head Hunters concludes one of the most gripping John Milton stories I've ever listened to, it's got action, action and more action There's also love there even if Milton never admits it, indeed!, Milton finds a woman who truly accepts him for who he is Milton is a genius in this one, tricking one of the most dangerous intelegence services in the world Get this book and then buy Salvation Row, then wait until the weekend when you have nothing to do Get yourself a takeaway and put these on, you won't regret it

    "Australia, Japan and Croatia the story continues"

    John Milton visits a friend in Australia and some of his past deeds catch up with him in the form of an Israeli assassin.

    CAN he escape again? Milton sets out to ensure that he and his friends are safe from this particular assassin

    Yet another enjoyable story from Mark Dawson.
