Absence of Light
A Charlie Fox Novella ; Incorporating, Fox Five : A Charlie Fox Short Story Collection ; Plus, Across the Broken Line : A Charlie Fox Short StoryBook - 2013
Ex-Special Forces soldier turned bodyguard Charlotte 'Charlie' Fox is back in this heart-stopping collection of one novella and six short stories. The 58,000-word novella, ABSENCE OF LIGHT finds Charlie heading for the scene of devastation after a major earthquake, tasked not only to protect the specialist recovery team who seem determined to put their lives at risk, but also to uncover a motive for murder amid the ruins. FOX FIVE is a five-story collection that sees Charlie go from self-defence instructor to bodyguard, taking her from the quiet menace of the English countryside to the homes of the uber-rich, coping with unexpected dangers, and on to a deadly assignment in a war zone. Includes the CWA Short Story Dagger finalist, Served Cold. In the short story Across The Broken Line we follow Charlie through a fragmented timescale of cross and double-cross as she fights to keep her principal alive -- whoever that might be. Praise for Zoe Sharp and Charlie Fox: "The most addictive of series."--It's A Crime "If I were a woman I'd be Zoe Sharp, and if Jack Reacher were a woman, he'd be Zoe's main character, Charlie Fox."--Lee Child "Highly recommended."--Gloria Feit (5-star review for FOX FIVE) "Miss this at your peril."--Stuart MacBride"
