The new book from acclaimed writer Mark Dawson (author of the number one best-selling John Milton series), In Cold Blood is an action-packed thriller about ruthless betrayal and bloodthirsty vengeance.
Beatrix Rose was the most dangerous assassin in an off-the-books government kill squad until her former boss betrayed her. A decade later, she emerges from the Hong Kong underworld with payback on her mind. They gunned down her husband and kidnapped her daughter, and now the debt needs to be repaid. It's a blood feud she didn't start but is going to finish. Beatrix has already crossed one name off her Kill List. Her second target is a mercenary being held hostage by Somali terrorists. Can she infiltrate the most dangerous failed state on the planet and scrub him off the List, too?
Packed with explosive action and pause-resistant suspense, this is the must-listen first novel in a brand new series that is sure to be as successful as the John Milton series.

Interesting, Exciting, Thinking
The scene where she slits the throat of the next on the list.
I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. I didn't think the subject matter was something I would enjoy. How wrong I was. The book is well written and pulls you into the story. The emotion and characters are believable and you just want to hear what happens next. I can't wait to get the next in the series just to see what happens. Will she make it? Will she finish her wish list?

Great 'read' / listen. Starts well, gripping, engaging with great detail and suspense from start to finish. Fantastic character, driven by different motivations. Great spin off from the John Milton series. Well done Mark Dawson and more please.
