Publisher's Summary

Rio de Janeiro. Brazilians call it Cidade Maravilhosa - the Marvellous City - but crime festers in its favelas like cancer.

John Milton is visiting an old friend who runs a close protection business guarding the city's elite. Milton offers to stand in when one of his bodyguards doesn’t turn up for work. The job? Take the wife and daughter of an anticorruption judge to a school recital and bring them back again. Simple?

Not so much. The girl is snatched off the street, and Milton is nearly killed. As he recovers at a Group Fifteen safe house, he decides on two objectives.

First, find the girl.

Second, punish the kidnappers for what they’ve done.

Milton’s trip becomes a lethal quest into the heart of the lawless slums and against the gangs who wield the real power in Rio. But Milton won’t stop there - he’ll chase them right into the horrific heart of darkness until his special brand of justice has been well and truly served.

Another terrific novel in the John Milton series!!

Milton continues to roam the world trying to salve his guilt about murders he committed working for British Intelligence. REDEEMER finds him in Rio de Janeiro visiting an old friend when a young girl is kidnapped. Like most other novels in the series this one is a superb suspense mystery as there are no limits to what Milton will do to save the young girl. David Thorpe's narration is excellent.

incredibly unnecessarily verbose and repetitive

Don't bother with this one. it's pretty easy to predict the next five paragraphs after you've heard one. waste of time

Welcome back, John!

I just can’t get enough of John Milton’s adventures. This was a fantastic story through and through. Dawson and Thorpe make a great team. The bad guys in this story are really good characters too. I recommend this book to all; however, if you are unfamiliar with the John Milton series, start at Book 1, The Cleaner.

Excellent as Always

Storyline is very entertaining, kept me wanting more. i listened to the book stopping only long enough to get a nights sleep. John Milton is one of the best ex-assassin's turned Redeemer that i have listened to. Reacher, Robie are still good books, but in my opinion they are all second to John Milton. i really enjoy the characters he meets, his old comrades and the people he helps. This definitely needs to be made into a series of movies or Netflix series. Mark Dawson-hurry up with the next installment

Dawson can't write fast enough

Poor John Milton can't even go on vacation without finding trouble. Drug lords, kidnapping, political corruption, inside traitors, and a poor young man so desperate to save his daughter dying of cancer that he gets himself caught up in it all.

This time John has to do some really dirty work, and he shows his skills. You may end up questioning his techniques--his idea of "I won't hurt him" might differ from yours. This leads to some contemplation as John is trying to atone for his past life and actions, yet he is still after justice. Can he ever be redeemed after all he has done, and continuously finds himself having to do?

Paolo's decisions are predictable, but the rest is still full of good Milton action. David Thorpe is still great at voicing personalities even if he doesn't speak Portuguese!

best yet

can't fault Mark Dawson's books. each one is absorbing believable and brilliant. this might be the best yet but I say that every Nye Milton book I read. the narrator is second to none. best narrator I have heard.

Another great read

This latest instalment of the John Milton continues in the same style. Thankfully with less reference to the AA, which have been a little over done in previous books.
Thoroughly entertaining, I listened attentively for two days and really couldn’t put this book down.

What can I say - I'm just a devoted fan

Quite why I like this series so much I'm not sure. It's very much a series for the chaps I think and the regular descriptions of fights and beatings are far from my idea of a good time. Yet love it I do. David Thorpe conjures up a tremendously vivid picture of John Milton who one can't help but warm to - despite the fact that his quest to do good in the world results in such a huge body count. If, like me, your an avid listener to this series book 12 is certainly not going to disappoint.

Milton is back

This time, John Milton is off to the favelas of Rio De Janeiro, to meet up with a friend from the past. After offering to help his friend with a job which was now a man down, Milton gets anther shock when he realises the life he lives means he will never know who his true friends are.

Packed with action and a decent storyline, expertly told by one of my favourite narrators, I'd highly recommend buying this. The ending is great, too!

Absolutely brilliant

Cannot recommend this book enough. I have absolutely loved all the Milton books. This narrator is amazing and is perfect for the character.
Note to author, please don’t ever kill Milton, I would be devastated! Just keep writing the books! Thank you

Great story, well narrated and gripping. What more could you want. Mark Dawson does it again and proves he is an excellent storyteller. This really is worth a few hours of your time. If you love a great action thriller, you’ll love this.

Excellent story and as always the narrator did disappoint. If you are new to the J Milton story, I recommend catching up on the other books before listening to this.

Orphan X - Human

This is a great story portraying all his focus, capability and drive. Evan's emotions alluded to over the last few books are maturing almost beyond his control. This does not dampen his resolve to complete the mission commenced, revenge, which in itself is an emotion.

This is a book I did not want to turn off and found myself sitting in the carpark stealing a few extra listening moments rather than heading into the Office. I was so disappointed to reach the end but noted the potential for another edition with 2 Orphans working together again. Perhaps she will need to save Evan?
