The crux of the Fox Hunter story


Former Special Forces soldier-turned-bodyguard Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Fox will never forget the men who put a brutal end to her military career, but she vowed a long time ago she would not go looking for them.

Now she doesn’t have a choice.

Her boss and former lover, Sean Meyer, is missing in Iraq where one of those men was working as a private security contractor. When the man’s butchered body is discovered, Charlie fears that Sean may be pursuing a twisted vendetta on her behalf.

Sean’s partner in their exclusive New York close-protection agency needs this dealt with—fast and quiet—before everything they’ve worked for is in ruins. He sends Charlie to the Middle East with very specific instructions:

Find Sean Meyer and stop him. By whatever means necessary.

At one time Charlie thought she knew Sean better than she knew herself, but it seems he’s turned into a violent stranger. As the trail grows more bloody, Charlie realises that unless she can get to Sean first, the hunter may soon become the hunted.

Charlie's story is far from over yet


It takes a major effort to write a 100,000 word novel—I know, I've written a dozen of them and FOX HUNTER has taken longer to produce than most of the earlier books in my Charlie Fox series. I can assure you that this is nothing to do with character fatigue—I'm still as interested in the nuances of Charlie's psyche as I was when I started. More so, if anything. She's become far more complicated as a person than she was, and although she's rather more practised when it comes to taking a life, the conflict it causes her internally is just as strong—if not stronger.

As FOX HUNTER closes, certain doors appear to have been slammed in Charlie's face, but you can bet that there will be others just beginning to open.

It is the personal relationships that clearly fascinate so many of my loyal readers, and the Charlie/Sean dynamic continues to rouse emotion and anguish. There will be more of both, I feel sure—their story is a long way from being over yet.

First reviews of FOX HUNTER are highly encouraging:

'A real corker of a tale for long-term fans and new readers alike… action-packed, adrenalin-filled but with plenty of depth and thoughtulness… A very good read.'—New Zealand blogger Craig Sisterson in Crime Watch

'ZoŽ Sharp writes some of the best—if not the best—thrillers currently produced. This book is truly a remarkable accomplishment… Do not miss this outstanding series.'Ted Hertel (Rating 'A')

 'Gritty, hard-hitting, all-around outstanding crime fiction.'Booklist starred review

'Nonstop action and an intricate plot weave together to create another thrill ride for fans of Sharp's heroine.'Kirkus Reviews

Reactions from readers in many parts of the world are heart-warming—and they are already asking when the they can expect the next instalment of the Charlie Fox story!
