Publisher's Summary

She does Britain's dirty work, but this time she needs help. Beatrix Rose, meet John Milton....

Beatrix Rose has a knack for making the British government's problems go away. When the assassin is sent to Venezuela to track down a missing scientist, she meets a contact who knows the lay of the land: none other than John Milton.

As the state-sanctioned assassin and the special forces soldier team up in South America, they'll do more than capture a missing scientist. They'll discover a secret that will change Beatrix's life forever....

Phoenix is a short story that unites two landmark thriller characters in a single tale. If you like ruthless assassins, fast-moving plots and Jack Reacher-style action, then you'll love USA Today best-selling author Mark Dawson's latest short.

Beatrix Rose & John Milton - the early years

This short story is an absolute must listen for Mark Dawson fans who have listened to the Beatrix Rose series. It also includes the first meeting of Beatrix Rose and John Milton before Milton joined Group Fifteen. In addition it includes the first mention of Isabella Rose. This short story fills in the backgrounds of all three major characters of author Mark Dawson.

Good Origin Story

This was a pretty good story that ends up explaining something key in the Beatrix Rose series. The only problem I had was at times during conversations between Beatrix and others, it was difficult to distinguish who was who (meaning I was unsure who was speaking). Overall, a very solid story and effort by Dawson and Slavin.

Narrator performance was a real let down

Please don’t allow this narrator to read another book ever again ! After a wonderful ride though the entire collection to hear someone sound like they are high and half asleep just ruined it.
If your gonna read books out loud make sure your good at it !

Hmmmm

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

A nice prelude to Rose and Milton. However the readers voice was very droll and uninteresting and therefore made it a bit boring

still a great story

Could have been a tad longer with the coming together of Beatrix & John. I thought there could have been more to it. I still enjoyed reading it.
