Overview

KILLER INSTINCT: Charlie Fox book one s the first in Zoe Sharp's highly acclaimed crime thriller series, now available with previously deleted scenes and Foreword by Lee Child. 'Susie Hollins may have been no great shakes as a karaoke singer, but I didn't think that was enough reason for anyone to want to kill her.' Charlotte 'Charlie' Fox makes a living teaching self-defence to women in a quiet northern English city. It makes best use of the deadly skills she picked up after being kicked out of army Special Forces training for reasons she prefers not to go into So, when Susie Hollins is found dead hours after she foolishly takes on Charlie at the New Adelphi Club, Charlie knows it's only a matter of time before the police come calling. What they don't tell her is that Hollins is the latest victim of a homicidal rapist stalking the local area. Charlie finds herself drawn closer to the crime when the New Adelphi's enigmatic owner, Marc Quinn, offers her a job working security at the club. Viewed as an outsider by the existing all-male team, her suspicion that there's a link between the club and the killer doesn't exactly endear her to anyone. Charlie has always taught her students that it's better to run than to stand and fight, But, when the killer starts taking a very personal interest, it's clear he isn't going to give her that option...'Charlie looks like a made-for-TV model, with her red hair and motorcycle leathers, but Sharp means business. The bloody bar fights are bloody brilliant, and Charlie's skills are both formidable and for real.' Marilyn Stasio, New York Times 'Sharp deserves a genre all her own ae' if you are just discovering Zoe 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 'Ill-tempered, aggressive and borderline psychotic, Fox is also compassionate, introspective and highly principled: arguably one of the most enigmatic ae' and coolest ae' heroines in contemporary genre fiction.' Paul Goat Allen, Chicago Tribune

Reviews

Charlie Fox came on strong in Zoe Sharp's early novels but, like a lot of tough girls, softened up with time. Now, thanks to an enterprising small press, we can catch Charlie in the rough. Originally published in 2001, Killer Instinct finds this army-trained martial-arts expert on her first job, working security for a club in an English seaside town. Charlie looks like a made-for-TV model, with her red hair and motorcycle leathers, but Sharp means business. The bloody bar fights are bloody brilliant, and Charlie's skills are both formidable and for real. -- Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review, July 4, 2010 <br> A solid, very well-written debut... The urban English setting is nicely realised, and grimy enough to make the reader's skin crawl on occasion, particularly Charlie's work at the Adelphi Nightclub. And even so early in the series, the action is so well choreographed that you believe every bone crunching impact on the page. Killer Instinct is a sharp, punchy read;
