The book falls back on proven Mark Dawson formula: tight, non-stop action with little time for boring filler. The result is a tale that, intellectually, isn't that deep. But that's not what I read Dawson for. This is an easy-reading, quick, action-packed, fun-filled ride. That said, there are some facets regarding the nature of the story's main antagonist that are interesting to explore. An, toward the end of the book, we get a hint into the nature of Isabella herself, that will be interesting to delve into deeper in subsequent installments.
If I had one criticism, it was that Isabella once again plays a somewhat supporting role through most of the novel. I enjoy seeing her kick ass on her own, as she has on occasion in previous books, rather than simply as Michael Pope's sidekick. Pope himself is interesting enough to carry his own story. I'd like to see Isabella Rose doing that also. The prequel stories of her mother, Beatrix, operating on her own while on the run in exile, were some of my favorite Mark Dawson stories.
If you like suspense, twist and turns, long reading into the early morning hours then this series is for you. If you have not read the Beatrix Rose series yet, do those first as well as the 3 book series of Beatrix's time in Hong Kong which is the time before the Beatrix Rose series begins. As you can tell there is a lot of history here to these two characters. AND yet even more but I will cover that in my review of Dawson's books on John Milton and one in particular called "The Ghost". More of that in my next review.
Isabella's story continues as she and a companion escape trap after trap intended to kill them -- they know too much and are a threat. The story dives down cliffs and corkscrew to the next part -- never knowing what to expect next! Exciting, suspenseful, thrilling, leaving me gasping when I forgot to breath!!! I hope we see Isabella Rose again and again!
This book was exciting fast-paced and intriguing with a spellbinding ending included. I'm glad she has a bionic friend she can trust. Maia has broken forever bonds that would've controled her and now put her in a deadly situation with her creators and former employers.
A spellbinding cliff hanging ending… I can't wait for the next in the series. No time for you to have cocktails get back to the computer and continue the adventures,
Thank you so much for the diversion from daily life,
Can't wait to read the Phoenix ,
There is a real ending to this novel......but I still didn't know for sure what happened to the lead characters....so I immediately downloaded #4.....The Assassin and am reading through it.
This series is soooo good. Don't Miss It

As I said, there are 4 relatively short books in this series and you really need to treat them as a single novel or you will be left rather disappointed as each part ends without a conclusion. Alas, this is becoming a common but disappointing practice among Kindle book publishers. Pope, our co-star, is a government security specialist who tries to unravel apparent conspiracy and deceit by senior people in government. He faces one impossible situation after another as even his closest family get embroiled in the affairs. Isabella Rose proves to be a surprisingly able accomplice - a girl with an intriguing upbringing.
The series is well worth the read. I just find having to buy 4 books for 1 story a tad disappointing. Hence, the 4-star rating.
I always approach a new Mark Dawson novel with a little trepidation, as I've loved each of his books and am always worried that the next new book won't live up to the last, and each time finishing the book, wondering why I was worried.
Yet again, Mark has brought a fantastic rip roaring story to life following the adventures of young Isabella, this time assisting Michael Pope, a former special ops soldier, working for the same organisation as her late mother, find his kidnapped family, at the same time exposing clandestine work from a shadowy organisation.
Without giving anything away, the story takes us through India, China, Russia and USA, all described in vivid detail (the Shanghai part was very clear as I know the area written about reasonably well).
Well worth the read, you won't regret it
