Publisher Description

“I highly recommend this series!” Ian Rankin“If you stay involved with Sean Meyer you will end up killing again,” my father said. “And next time, Charlotte, you might not get away with it.”Still bearing the emotional scars from her traumatic first bodyguarding job in the States, Charlie Fox returns home, trying to work out both her personal and professional future.Instead of the peace for which she's been hoping, Charlie is immediately caught up in the aftermath of a fatal bike crash involving one of her closest friends. The more she probes, the more she suspects that the accident was far from accidental—and the more she finds herself relying on the support of her troubled boss, Sean Meyer, despite her misgivings over the wisdom of resuming their relationship.And Charlie's got enough on her plate trying to work out who suddenly wants her dead. The only way to find out is to infiltrate a group of illegal road racers who appear hell-bent on living fast and dying young.Taking risks is something that ex-Special Forces soldier Charlie knows all about, but doing it just for kicks seems like asking for trouble. By the time she finds out what's really at stake, she might be too late to stop them all becoming road kill…If you like Lee Child and the Jack Reacher series, and are looking for an action-packed, gripping read with plenty of pace, hard to put down, check out Charlie Fox. We’ll bet you can’t wait for the next one. *Revised and updated editionAuthor’s Note:This is Book #5 in the long-running Charlie Fox series. Although I’ve tried hard to make each of the stories stand alone, inevitably Charlie’s history builds up over the course of the novels. If you are new to the series and want to know the full story of Charlie—how she began working with Sean Meyer after their time in the Army—then start at the beginning. If you’re more interested in Charlie’s career as a close-protection operative, then I’d recommend you begin with Book #4, FIRST DROP, when she and her teenage charge find themselves on the run during her first bodyguard job in Florida. ★★★★★ PRAISE FOR ZOE SHARP AND CHARLIE FOX*“If Jack Reacher were a woman, he’d be Charlie Fox.” Lee Child*“It's really quite impossible to put this book down, but what really makes this (and the whole series) shine is how Charlie's kickass skills are rooted in her own femininity and character.” Sarah Weinman, Confessions of an Idiosyncratic Mind*“Charlie Fox is fast becoming the must-read heroine of mystery… Superb.” Ken Bruen*“There's a high-octane climax to this entertaining story, in which Charlie once more displays her courage and ingenuity.” Susanna Yager, The Sunday Telegraph★★★★★ READER REVIEWS*“The Charlie Fox series is AWESOME!!!!
