Summary

A daughter lost... 

Nine months ago, Beatrix Rose had her family brutally taken from her. Now all that matters is getting her daughter back. And Beatrix is no ordinary mother - she’s a skilled assassin who will do whatever it takes to find her child. 

A daughter found... 

Danny Nakamura deserted his post in Vietnam and disappeared into Hong Kong’s Walled City, vowing never to go home again. Decades later, his health failing, he’s suddenly found a reason to return to LA: the discovery of a daughter he never knew he had. But getting home won’t be easy. Danny has powerful enemies in the CIA who will do whatever it takes to keep him out of the country. 

The search begins.

Two people adrift in a foreign land, Beatrix and Danny need all the help they can get. A storm is coming. Can they help each other survive it and find their children before time runs out for both of them?

Absolutely Riveting

Mark Dawson does it again. This series of books is absolutely brilliant. I just do not want to stop listening and always have an element of sadness whenever i reach the end of one of Marks books.
The story lines are captivating and you really live the book.
Grab the series and give yourself a treat along with The John Milton books.

More to come?

This was an excellent book after the second read. First you have to get used to all the characters and their affiliations and code names, then it is all straight forward. There are a number of years between books 4 and 1 so expect more in the series, also after book 3 you could expect a whole new series. Well worth starting from the John Milton series.

brilliant - on to the next in the series.

Throughly enjoyed all the books in the series so far. Hope to enjoy the rest as much. The storyline gets a little complicated but this adds to excitement. The descriptions of locations make it feel real.I can close my eyes and just imagine the streets.

I love Mark Dawson but narrator has ruined this!

I am loving the John Milton series and thought I'd listen to this one also. However, the narrator sounds like a robot. The story is ruined by it. Sorry Gemma, nothing personal!

Beatrix Rose

It took a couple of books for me to warm to Beatrix, but now I enjoy her books nearly as much as I enjoy John Milton books.
Mark please write faster.

Another of Mark Dawson's damaged heros

I usually like Mark Dawson's books, particularly if they are read by David Thorpe as in his John Milton series. This was my first of the Beatrix Rose book and can't say that I will be looking to read more. I did recognise his choice of hero as the drug addicted but wonderfully talented Beatrix who always managed to turn up at the eleventh hour to save to goody from a fate worse than death. While I find John Milton vigilante type character, especially when narrated by david Thorpe, this book did not come up to the same standard.

Really interesting read

Geographically sound, loved the travel

Good story, great narration

One criticism which is purely personal

Mr Dawson keeps using words such as “belly” and “slathered” repeatedly in his books, both of which make me cringe, I wish he could be a little more imaginative, but maybe others do not find this as abhorrent as I do

Still five stars though

Good stuff!

With Tempest author Mark Dawson releases his first Beatrix Rose series novel in five years. Although Tempest is Book 4 in the series chronologically it is set prior to Book 1. This novel is about finding daughters. First there is Danny's adult daughter and next (in Book 5?) will be Beatrix's pre-teen daughter Isabella. I'm not a fan of the narrator.
