"It’s impossible not to think of Lee Child’s super-selling Jack Reacher. " - The Times

"The literary sensation you've never heard of." - The Daily Telegraph

"Mark Dawson writes the kind of thrillers I love. Non-stop, grab-you-by-the-throat tales of doing the right thing no matter the odds. Simply excellent." - USA Today bestselling author Brett Battles

John Milton is a problem solver. He's the man the British government calls on to take care of the worst of the worst: the enemies of the state that the Secret Service and the military can’t stop. But years of secret identities and clandestine missions have taken their toll. Milton is troubled by nightmares and resolves to make his next job his last. Then, perhaps, he can start to make amends for everything that he has done.

Milton finds himself in the East End of London. A young mother needs his help to rescue her son from a life on the street. But the gang that has taken the boy in, and the charismatic criminal who leads it, are not about to cooperate with him. As London burns through summer riots, Milton finds himself in unfamiliar territory, dealing with an unfamiliar foe.

And when his employer sends another agent after him, the odds against him are stacked even higher.

You'll love Mark Dawson's #1 bestselling thrillers. More than 1m copies downloaded and 1000s of five star reviews. Available in digital, print and audiobook.


  • Hard to put down

    By MKC in tears
    Here I go again. Planned to just start the novel only to end up finishing it in one setting. Spent a " nuit blanche" to get to the end of it. I was not looking forward to Milton retiring from his " job" but was quickly appeased to follow him applying his "skills" to good use. In this novel, Milton realizes he has reached the end of the road and wants to retire as an assassin. His body has aged, and his conscience is catching up with him. When witnessing the almost successful attempt at suicide of a desperate stranger, he decides to stay put and try to help her and her son. Meanwhile, he himself is "marked for elimination," but doesn't meet his assassin until he has finished "cleaning up."

    A easy book to keep a person up intill the wee hours of the morning. Not the fasting moving book but enough to keep a person interested. Don’t hesitate, just get it.

    Addictive, exciting, you are drawn into the story. Soon I had to keep reading into the night. And now I want to get to the next John Milton book and find out what he's doing next. Recommend The Cleaner to those who enjoy excitement and also the excellent character development.

    Entertaining in the vein of jack reacher, Mitch rapp type series with a hit man protagonist. Not ground breaking but an enjoyable read.

    Did not start out like Jaws or Gorky Park where you are hooked from the first page, but it was still very, very good. Cared about the characters, a worthwhile read.
