Mark..Show More » Dawson's John Milton series and Beatrix Rose series are somewhat intertwined. Both Milton and Rose worked for a British government assassin agency before Milton quit and the agency decided to kill Beatrix Rose and her husband. The agency also kidnapped their four year old daughter Isabella. Rose's husband was killed and their daughter kidnapped, but Beatrix escaped to Hong Kong where she went underground while searching for years for her daughter.
The 3 novel Beatrix Rose series starts after she has found Isabella and sets out to get revenge with the agency employees who betrayed her. The novels in the series are In Cold Blood, Blood Moon Rising, and Blood and Roses. The three novellas in this audiobook cover Rose's early years in Hong Kong after her husband is killed and her daughter is kidnapped.
The best place to start with the overlapping Milton and Rose series is definitely the first two Milton novellas followed by the next few Milton novels in order. Then listen to In Cold Blood, Blood Moon Rising, and Blood and Roses in strict order. The Hong Kong Stories will not make sense if listened to first. Finally, Dawson released the first novel in the Isabella Rose series recently. It is best listened to after Blood and Roses.
British author Mark Dawson writes great espionage/suspense thrillers. This audiobook is superb.
