Publisher's Summary

"Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves..."

Beatrix Rose has worked her way through her Kill List. Four are dead and just two remain. But now her enemies know she has them in her sights. The hunter becomes the hunted.

In a thrilling conclusion to the breakneck trilogy, Beatrix and her daughter must fight them in North Africa, New York and finally in the swamps of North Carolina. It's a lightning-paced roller-coaster of action that pits a deadly assassin against the might of the most powerful private army on the planet.

It's long odds for Beatrix. And that's just how she likes it.

Beatrix Rose novels are wonderful

In Cold Blood, Blood Moon Rising, and Blood and Roses are best viewed as one novel. I love these books! Beatrix Rose is seeking to find and kill the people responsible for forcing her into exile and kidnapping her daughter. Rose, a former British espionage agent, has a terminal disease and her time is limited. Guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat!

There is a second Beatrix Rose series about her time in exile in Hong Kong prior to this series (actually written after this series). It is available for Amazon Kindle, but is not available in audiobook format.

Mark Dawson is an excellent author.

Great Rose Finale?

Would you consider the audio edition of Blood & Roses to be better than the print version?

Couldn't have the audio edition without the print version to perform, and I tried to read and listen together. With this method, I must admit that I often got so engrossed in the audio that I sometimes forgot to read when there was an action scene being vividly performed with different voices.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I kept waiting for Bella to be a mini-mom, but she didn't come close until after a string of amateur mistakes.

Which character – as performed by Mark Deakins – was your favorite?

His performance of King impressed me because I've met guys like King and Deakins' voice was right on the mark.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Bella vomits in the staircase, the moment was not emotional, but it moved me to think, "That's what really happens".

Any additional comments?

Mark Deakins' performance was awesome and he couldn't have done it without Mark Dawson's awesome novels to perform. For me, the entire Beatrix Rose series was five stars. I hope it's not just my gut feeling that Bella might blossom into the same kind of Rose her mom was.

Blood and Roses

Just when it seems like all is lost Rose comes through as a winner. I enjoyed two books about Rose.

Loved it! Had to go get another one.

Can't wait to see what will happen with Isabella and how she will survive on her own.

A really entertaining series

It's 1am and I just finished binge listening to the entire series. Great characters, good narration and fast moving story plot. Even though each book was short, they were worth the credit. This is the first series I've read from Mark Dawson and I will check out other books of his.

WOW! GREAT STORY AND READING

I loved this trilogy and the only thing I would love is a story with the daughter with Pope in the shadows somewhere.

Excellent

Following along with Beatrix as she finishes her goals is a fast paced tale. More answers are given as is more insight on some of the characters. I listen to audio books as I travel and I found myself just sitting in my car listening after I arrived at my destination, needing to know what was going to happen.

...and then there was one

I think that this is the best of the trilogy. Still don’t like that Isabella sounds like an infant when she talks with Beatrix. I think it’s the use of ‘mummy’ that does it. That said this is a cracking yarn. Looking forward to the Isabell Rose series now.

The Last Rose

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes but only after the first two books of the Beatrix Rose trilogy have been read. Some background knowledge of what has gone before is essential to the full enjoyment of this final story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood & Roses?

When Isabella visits the tatoo parlour

Which character – as performed by Mark Deakins – was your favourite?

Has to be Beatrix herself.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Roses for revenge

Any additional comments?

Again, I was initially uncomfortable with Mark Deakin as the narrator but within a very few minutes his style of presentation and the excellent characterisations just melded with the storyline. This was a most satisfying last book of an exciting and unusual thriller.
