This book shows a greater depth to Beatrix and her back story whilst showing her vulnerabilities.
Great read that leads into the start of Isabella's story
Once again I’m impressed with Mark Dawson’s writing. He comes up with engaging characters and fantastic plots and I would highly recommend both series.
A beautiful piece of writing.
Anyone who enjoyed the John Milton books, the Bourne series, or The Friends From Damascus series, should read these.
Great characters and well written. Buy all three, you won't regret it.

Beatrix Rose (the heroine) is nearing the end of her quest to gain vengeance against the ex-members of the shadowy group 15 who betrayed her, killed her husband and kidnapped her daughter.
She is now re-united with her daughter, but wracked by cancer and knowing that her time is very limited she sets out to eliminate her last 2 targets, but they are both part of a security company which has the largest private army in the world.
The book starts explosively with one of her adversaries attempting to kill her at her home in Marrakech, but Beatrix is ready and she escapes with her daughter, and another of her targets is killed.
The story then moves through New York and finally to the security company HQ in a swamp in North Carolina where Beatrix draws out her final target and makes a spectacular last ditch attempt to finish the job.
The last section of the book features her daughter Isabella and a very welcome cameo appearance by Mark Dawson’s other ex-group fifteen lead character, John Milton.
The book is a brilliant combination of really spectacular action sequences and extremely touching scenes between Beatrix and Isabella, showing the strengths and vulnerabilities of both. As always Mark Dawson manages to bring real depth to all his characters and also provides great insights into the locations he uses.
Overall, a great book, which I can’t recommend too highly. The only complaint I have is that I now have to wait for Mark’s next book.
Four accounted for, two to go and with her cancer eating away at her body and sapping her strength a real sense of time becoming her greatest enemy.
Violence comes to her home as an elite group flies in helicopters under the radar to catch Beatrix unaware.
Her daughter, Isabella barely survives the raid and her Mum is racked with guilt that all her preparation to help her survive has be wasted and time together missed as result.
The last kill demands travelling to the USA as Control has placed himself in an impregnable fortress. Beatrix takes her daughter to New York for one last special time, sightseeing and shopping.
But has she kept Isabella close to help her or just because she can't bear to be parted one last time?
It is quite heartbreaking as the clock ticks down and Beatrix is separated from Isabella on what appears to be a one way journey. She regrets involving her and hopes the plans she has made for her after her death can keep her safe.
Yet in keeping her so close to the final hit will she indirectly expose her to the very danger she has tried to prepare her for?
Heart-rending, all action, thrills, twists and despair.
Rose is on a mission of revenge against the Firm she used to work for who sold her out to the enemy. She has a kill list which she is methodically working her way through. This is the third novel in her quest for revenge.
As with all Dawson’s novels they are action-packed page turners and this and the other Rose novels are quick and satisfying reads. It is good to see a powerful, female protagonist.
