Publisher's Summary

John Milton hasn't seen Elijah Warriner for three years. The last time they met, Milton's efforts to keep the boy safe didn't go exactly to plan. Now Elijah is a promising boxer, preparing for the bout that will take him to the big time. Milton decides that he will spend the week before Christmas in London so that he can watch the fight.  

But Elijah's burgeoning fame has brought him to the attention of old acquaintances with long memories and grudges to bear. They have noticed Elijah, too, and decide that now is the time to settle old scores.  

Can Milton keep the young man and his mother safe, or will Elijah's old running mates get to him first?

Simple little story!

TWELVE DAYS would have made a very good 3.5 hour novella, but as a 4.75 hour novel it's disappointing. Mark Dawson's John Milton series has become formulaic, tired and boring. Dawson is much too good a novelist to allow this to happen. Audible classifies the novel as espionage but there is nothing espionagy, to coin a word, about it. I suspect it's time for Dawson to move on to another protagonist or put his efforts into his Isabella Rose series. The narration by David Thorpe is stellar.

Another John Milton Triumph - by Mark Dawson

Mark Dawson tells his stories brilliantly and David Thorpe interprets them perfectly.

The Cleaner, Dawson’s first story with Sharon Warriner and her son, Elijah, is a must read ahead of Twelve Days. You won’t be sorry reading all of Dawson’s books in their appropriate order. They do not disappoint.

Nonetheless, Twelve Days is a satisfying story, considering the backdrop of the days leading up to Christmas. No spoilers here, but more of John Milton’s character and heart emerge, in juxtaposition to the details of the tale.

AGAIN, do yourself the great favor of reading The Cleaner first.

Superb..

A shorter instalment to the brilliant John Milton series, but just as good as any of its predecessors.
On this occasion, Milton returns to old ground, visiting his friend Elijah, whom he'd helped way back in the early stages of the series. Elijah has gone on to big things, but is now getting noticed by those that Milton had protected him from before. The usual fast paced action you'd expect from Mark Dawson, and great to see the trio of Milton, Hicks and Ziggy back in flow.
David Thorpe does a wonderful job of narrating.
Can't wait for the next one!

one of the best in the series

This is one of the best John Milton books in the series. it was nice to see how he managed to go back and correct a problem that he hadn't solved.

Classic Milton.

I have thoroughly enjoyed all the Milton books, but this one grabbed me more than others to such an extent that I stopped doing the odd jobs that usually get dealt with at the same rime, and just sat and listened to the last chapters without moving!

Another winner

I have loved these books from the get-go. John Milton is the perfect anti-hero, as he goes from bad to good in his heart he is still bad. The bad man is still there buried deep but still comes out to say hi now and then. 12 Days is all that is best of milton - including the return of Hicks and Ziggy.

A return to the beginning to tie up some loose end and rebuild some bridges.

Well done Mark, keeping up the quality - more please.

Christmas at Easter

As much as I enjoy this John Milton series, I feel rather cheated by this latest release. It is very short and gives the impression that poor old John has run his course. Maybe it is time for him to find absolution, settle down with a lovely lady and put his feet up.
As ever, perfectly narrated by David Thorp.

Probably the best voice actor ever

Really gripping story revisiting a previous plot. As ever Mark Dawson kept up a good pace and David Thorpe characterisation was simply brilliant. First class series
