Praise for Zoe Sharp and Charlie Fox
"If Jack Reacher were a woman, he'd be Charlie Fox."—Lee Child
“Ill-tempered, aggressive and borderline psychotic, Fox is also compassionate, introspective and highly principled: arguably one of the most enigmatic—and coolest—heroines in contemporary genre fiction.”—Paul Goat Allen, Chicago Tribune
“Sharp deserves a genre all her own—if you are just discovering Zoë Sharp then you are in for a real treat.”—Jon Jordan, Crimespree Magazine
“Charlotte (Charlie) Fox is one of the most vivid and engaging heroines ever to swagger onto the pages of a book. Where Charlie goes, thrills follow.”—Tess Gerritsen
“Zoe Sharp is one of the sharpest, coolest, and most intriguing writers I know. She delivers dramatic, action-packed novels with characters we really care about. And once again, in DIE EASY, Zoe Sharp is at the top of her game."—Harlan Coben
"In a world where lots of people act cool, Zoe Sharp's books are cool. But ... they're not only cool. They're razor sharp, deeply felt, and heartbreakingly immediate. These are action thrillers about a woman who works as a bodyguard, frequently trying to protect women, and there's no cheapening the central issue of violence (often against women) as a means to an end. In fact, by wrapping this societal cancer in noirish, kickass, often funny thrillers, written in coolly polished prose, Sharp can take societal violence farther and hit it harder than many so-called literary writers. And do it in language that's almost poetic in its economy and impact. Sharp is one of the writers whose books I open with a bit of reluctance in case the new one isn't up to the earlier ones, because they're that good."—Timothy Hallinan

It ticked all of the boxes. Non stop action, humour, interesting characters, enough confusion to add to the suspense and a great star. Not a robot, not Supergirl, but a fascinating study. You have me as a reader for ever.
have read all the [Charlie Fox ] more than once to feed my
constant appetite for the stories and character
think I might have to again wait for the next one

Bad Turn has all the classic elements we’ve come to expect; crackling action, tight plotting, multidimensional characters and whip-smart dialogue with a deliciously sardonic edge. However once again Zoe Sharp exceeded expectations.
I pre ordered this expecting to love it. What I got was an utterly delicious slice of balls-to-the-wall, intelligent, female-centric action. A juggernaut of action set piece after set piece meaning I devoured this with delight far, far too quickly. And it was even better than my high expectations anticipated.
Writing quality action that is as intelligent as it is exciting is a deceptively complex art. Too much description of the fight sequences and the pacing suffers and becomes like a badly executed game of twister (right punch to left shoulder...knee to groin...) but not enough is just as bad, leaving the reader lost. Bad Turn is that rare, tight and compelling novel that makes you fall through the hole in the page and SEE the story in glorious HD in your head; including all those compellingly brutal fights. That takes phenomenal authorial skill.
There’s truly no one else I know of in fiction like Charlie. Male characters in action roles are a dime a dozen but a truly compelling, realistic woman, competing in a man’s world as an equal, using brain as much as skill, technique as much as power, fortitude as much as integrity is sadly, incredibly rare. Charlie Fox in all her intricate, nuanced complexity is just exactly what we need more of.
Thank you , Ms Sharp for yet another truly fabulous novel. I’ve loved all the Charlie Fox novels but the fact they keep getting better and better is the best gift of all. More please, and quickly.
It's brave of Sharp to have made the decisions she has and no-one wants Charlie moping around like a love-sick tweenie - all the same, this book, good as it is, feels more generic as an exciting thriller with less of what made this series unique. Still, Charlie alone is always worth reading, and I'm looking forward to her coming back to the UK for the next episode.
Enter Zoe with Charlie, once again a fast paced, flowing adventure story. Thank goodness for two days of respite.
Great characters, believable storylines; what more could you ask for?
Roll on the next episode. I'm hoping we won't have to wait so long next time!
Charlie Fox will kill if she has to, to protect her principal, but is no cold blooded killer. We are with her through every twist and turn. I just had to keep reading on, to find out what happened next, as even those she thought were on her side betrayed her.
Right, that's the kettle clicked off - which means - this review is finished. I'm gonna go read it again! :D
