John Milton is a ghost. He was Number One. The most dangerous assassin in Group Fifteen, the black-ops organisation that solves problems when diplomacy has failed. Now Milton is Her Majesty´s most wanted fugitive - an anonymous loner with a deadly set of skills. So when he is arrested following a brawl in a Texas bar, the last person he expects to bail him out is a glamorous operative from the Russian Secret Service. Milton is blackmailed into finding his predecessor as Number One. But she´s a ghost, too, and just as dangerous as him. He finds himself in deep trouble, playing the Russians against the British in a desperate attempt to save the life of his oldest friend. Some ghosts are better left alone. But these two have been disturbed, and now there´s going to be hell to pay. Mark Dawson has worked as a lawyer and currently works in the London film industry.

When a Russian defector is assassinated in a sleepy English seaside town, Group Fifteen agents John Milton and Michael Pope find themselves in a rush to uncover the culprits and bring them to justice. Their investigation leads them to Moscow and a confrontation with Directorate S, the agency responsible for seeding Russian sleeper agents around the world. When lies and double crossing mean that no-one is what they seem, the two agents - alone and without backup - struggle to achieve their goals under the most dangerous of circumstances. Set one week before the opening of The Cleaner, this compulsive thriller turns back the clock to Milton as a barely functioning alcoholic, still tormented by the ghosts of the men and women he has killed in the service of his country. Milton must fight his own demons as well as the Russian assassin sent to eliminate him. Will he be able to complete his mission and escape with his life? 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Thorpe.

His life flashes before his eyes. We hear everything that´s happened to him, and anything that might have happened to him. His hopes, his dreams, his fears.

In 1998, BBC Radio 4 found it had a new star on its hands. From the opening monologue (´´You see when the boys in the playground found out that I had a potentially fatal allergy to peanuts, they used to shove me up against a wall and make me play Russian roulette with a bag of Revels´´) to the closing number (´´Milton Jones, Milton Jones, so good they named him´´), everything about the show was different, weird, and funny. The first series was - unprecedentedly - moved from an 11.30 pm slot to the prestigious 6.30 pm Monday slot in mid-series, and won a British Comedy Award nomination. The second series starts transmitting in October. We urge you to come and share the sound, the sight, the smell, (but not the taste) of the man they call ´´Britain´s funniest Milton´´. 1.
