John Milton is an assassin with British intelligence Group 15. He has worked there for 10 years and wants to leave. He is not allowed to leave. In this novella Milton is forced to go to Italy to investigate the death of another agent. This is an excellent espionage story. I highly recommend this novella and the 8 novels that follow it.

The British secret special operations office decides that the killer of one of their agents must be eliminated. So John Milton is sent to find out who the killer is and dispose of him. He does so brilliantly, while actually accomplishing far more than that one simple operation. That part is interesting. I liked the setup even though I had no idea why he was doing what he was doing until it was done.
It all seemed too easy. I guess when you are him, you know how things work and where to go and whom to speak with. But it's like he was looking for a specific movie, so he read the paper, located the theater, and bought a ticket. I guess when you are an expert killer sent to kill an expert killer, you either do it or you don't, and your story is over. Well he prevailed this time, and went home. A bit pat.
I really enjoyed The Cleaner, and its other prequel, 1000 yards. This is a short story, so it has to wrap up quickly, just not my favorite.
