Fifth Victim

A Charlie Fox Thriller

New in paperback, the fierce and charismatic Charlie Fox must choose between her duty to her client or her desire to avenge her lover’s attacker.

With the life of her lover, Sean, still hanging in the balance, former Special Forces soldier turned bodyguard, Charlie Fox, throws herself into her only means of escape—her work.            

On Long Island, the playground of New York’s wealthy and privileged, she is tasked with protecting the wayward daughter of rich businesswoman, Caroline Willner. It seems that an alarming number of the girl’s circle of friends have been through kidnap ordeals, and Charlie quickly discovers that the girl herself, Dina, is fascinated by the clique formed by these former victims. Is that why she seems to be going out of her way to invite capture?            

Charlie worries that Dina’s thrill-seeking tendencies will put both of them in real danger. But just as her worst fears are realized, Charlie receives devastating personal news. The man who put Sean in his coma is on the lose.  She is faced with the choice between her loyalties to her client and avenging Sean, but the two goals are soon inextricably linked. The decisions Charlie makes now, and the path she chooses to follow, will have far-reaching consequences.

Zoë Sharp, the author of nine novels in the Charlie Fox series of thrillers, spent most of her formative years living on a catamaran on the northwest coast of England. She now lives in Cumbria.
