Brilliant end to the trilogy
on 26 October 2015
I have been a fan of Mark Dawson for a time now and have read all his other books but have only recently bought this one, and it left me blown away, I think that it is probably my new favourite book of his.
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.
