Summary

Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, is the most dangerous city in the world. And when a mission to break the local cartel’s grip goes wrong, Isabella Rose, the Angel, finds herself on the wrong side of prison bars. Fearing the worst, Isabella plays her only remaining card...

British agent Vivian Bloom is determined to be the first to reach her, certain she will lead him to other operatives he’s under pressure to hunt down. But US agents are circling too. And with the shadowy Prometheus group pulling the strings, Isabella knows that she and her mentor, the Asset, are living on borrowed time…

The Assassin is the fourth part in a continuing story involving Isabella Rose that also includes Act I: The Angel, Act II: The Asset and Act III: The Agent.

One after the other they all fall down

Well I’m hoping there’s going to be a follow up to this tremendously exciting and all action thriller. This series of the mother and daughter “ Rose “ has been first class listening

great story poorly told

the narrator puts internations in the strangest of places. It sounds like it is narrated for a young child. really detracts from the story

In her mother's footsteps

This is proving to be a fascinating series. Just as good as Beatrix, more fascinating (but also quite tedious, as she reminds you by her actions, that she's just a kid)! Even though this is literally hot off the press, I can't wait for the next instalment!

Great narration, fantastic story - very clever plot twist - I know who's next, I’m intrigued to discover how!

Hooked on lame series

First off the narrator is mediocre at best...does horrible on the female voices. Secondly, Dawson again fills his novel with unnecessary street names, turns, scenic and weaponry description that I'm able to multi task while listening and not miss any of the story line. Having said that, when the author does address the subject matter of the book it's really well written with plenty of suspense and action to the plot. Isabella is gaining traction as an assassin and was glad to see Pope reimerg in the thick of things; sans his wife and family. That's another part of the story that irritated me as Pope's wife was portrayed as an unfeeling unappreciative woman who didn't care about him or what he went thru to save his family. Anyway, as usual I will be waiting on the follow-up book in this series.

Maybe the best Isabella Rose story yet.

I split between listening to and reading this book. The narration is excellent and it blends with my reading, I couldn't tell you now which parts I read and which parts I heard.

I really like all the Mark Dawson books, I think I've read all the Milton books and all the mother and daughter Rose books. This one moves along to a satisfactory ending. I really like how Dawson incorporates Michael Pope into the Isabella Rose stories.

Great book and awesome narration..



Alrighty, then. The last book in this series, maybe, and it has 364 pages and 100 chapters then the epilogue. That should tell you how short some of the chapters are, LOL…

Anyway, I wasn’t crazy about Pope in the beginning of this story, and I liked his wife even less. She threw him out and he became a drunk. I’m glad it started off with Isabella and Maia doing their thing in Mexico instead of starting with Pope. He was always such a hero that it was hard to dislike him suddenly. I knew he’d get better but still…

The good thing about the beginning of this is you had no idea what Isabella and Maia were up to. Why did Isabella have to get arrested? Where was Maia and what was she doing? There was such a great mystery going on in the beginning. I couldn’t read fast enough. And it was very exciting when those questions were answered.

And Bloom? Someone just needed to kill that jerk. Well, that whole group he worked with needed to be killed.

This was a really good series BUT I did do a whole lot of skimming. This author thinks everyone is interested in the name of every road or highway someone drives down and every weapon they kill with and every piece of furniture in every room and every part of the woods where they are hiding, it became ridiculous. Mr. Dawson needs to calm the heck down in his descriptions of everything. It makes the book boring IMO, and it causes a lot of skipping and skimming. Stop with the filler.

The F-bomb was used 14 times.

As to the narration: WOW! Napoleon Ryan is the best. He was very, very impressive with all the names in every country that Pope and Isabella went to. Especially the names in China. THAT was awesome.
