“I highly recommend this series!” Ian Rankin
‘I was running when I saw my father kill himself. Not that he jumped off a tall building or stepped in front of a truck, but—professionally, personally—what I watched him do was suicide.’
Now settled in New York City and working for an exclusive close-protection agency, ex-Special Forces soldier turned bodyguard Charlie Fox is shocked to see an interview with her father on the morning TV news. A prominent UK orthopaedic surgeon, he is under investigation after the death of a patient.
Despite the rift between Charlie and her parents, she can’t stand by and allow him to become a scapegoat, however much he tries to reject her offers of help.
Joined by her fellow bodyguard and lover, Sean Meyer, she encounters some of the most ruthless criminals of her career as she seeks to exonerate her father.
She may have felt like killing him on numerous occasions in the past. But she’ll be damned if she’ll let somebody else do the job.
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.
This is Book #7 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.
