Publisher Description

“I highly recommend this series!” Ian Rankin‘Take it from me, getting yourself shot hurts like hell’The latest assignment for ex-Special Forces soldier turned bodyguard Charlie Fox has her protecting Simone and her daughter Ella from the unwanted attentions of an ex-boyfriend. But right from the start, Simone’s refusal to accept Charlie’s security measures puts both mother and child in danger.After a bloody shoot-out in a frozen New England forest, Charlie is left fighting for her life. As she struggles to recover from her injuries, her only thought is to keep Ella safe, even as her actions put them both squarely in a killer’s sights. And this time, Charlie’s in no fit state to protect anyone, least of all herself…If you like Lee Child but have been looking for strong yet believable female protagonists, who will take down the bad guys without hesitation but who are still human enough to care, then bodyguard Charlie Fox is definitely for you. Readers have found books in this series action-packed thrill rides that kept them glued to the end, well-written, gritty, and hard to put down. A real page-turner. *Revised and updated editionAuthor’s Note:This is Book #6 in the 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*“Quite simply, Zoë Sharp kicks ass. The action scenes are ultra real, her descriptions are magic, and her pacing perfect … I urge you not to miss this book.” Jon Jordan, Crimespree Magazine*“The action is relentless and Charlie is a heroine of extreme toughness without sacrificing her humanity. This is, easily, the best instalment of the series.” Sarah Weinman, Confessions of an Idiosyncratic Mind*“Charlie Fox is fast becoming the must-read heroine of mystery… Superb.” Ken Bruen*“Crackles with suspense, plenty of plot-twists, and a heroine who adds new meaning to the term femme fatale.” Booklist (starred review)★★★★★ READER REVIEWS*“It was action packed and kept my attention throughout.”*“Read this in a day and a half on holiday. It’s nice to have a female action hero for a change. Can’t wait for the next one…”*“I'm so happy I listened to Lee Child's review of Sharp's books. Been addicted to her Charlie Fox series ever since.”*“SECOND SHOT delivered big time. This was my first Zoe Sharp book, certainly not my last.”*“They get better and better. Lots of action. It's a real page turner. It great to see such a strong woman who is not afraid to kick ass and take names. Loved it.”*“Just love her books. Can't wait for the next Charlie Fox book to come out.”*“This was my first Zoe Sharp Book, and I couldn’t put it down, read it in 2 days. Really gripping, lots of twists & turns in the plot, which keep you guessing (wrongly in my case!) right up until the end. Charlie Fox is great, a real tough nut. Can’t wait to read some more!”
