I never had read any books of Sidney Sheldon or Tilly Bagshawe, The Phoenix is my first book from Tilly Bagshawe.
I must say Tilly has done a great job by portraying this kind of thrilling story and presented to her readers to enjoy.
I enjoyed reading this book, a truly nail-biting story.

The story is about Ella Praeger and her connection with Athena Petridis a most powerful criminal mastermind. Ella Praeger lost her parents while they were on a secret mission of The Group. 
The story becomes more grippy when Ella got a call to join the ranks of The Group, a force for good operating in the shadows. 
Ella joined that group to know about her parents and to take the revenge of her parents death.
Athena Petridis also declared dead in a helicopter crash but the reality is something different.
Ella got to know more about Athena when she was on a mission in Greece.
What is the connection between Ella and Athena?
The reality of Athena death?
Will Ella succeed to take revenge?

There are many mysterious questions remains unanswered until you pick this book.
Waiting for next book.
