RachelW (BamaGal): “Good story, fantastic series, and great to see Charlie of the early books. The series shows no signs of wearing thin. If anything, it’s been revitalized and going in a new direction.”

K, Nz: “Loved it, the story flowed at breakneck speed… Trademark twists and turns, and clever turns of phrase. Charlie still has heart and principles in spite of sometimes awful odds. …Zoë Sharp is my favourite author.”

The Cats Mother: “I absolutely loved this – an adrenaline rush that starts with a bang within the first few pages and does not let up until the end… Plenty of twists, as we soon discover that all is not as it seems, and I didn’t guess the big one at all.”

Judith Baxter: “It is well known to my followers that I am a Charlie Fox fan and this book doesn’t disappoint… I thoroughly recommend it and as always, look forward to the next in the series.”

All the books in the Charlie Fox series can be read as standalones but naturally it enriches the story if you know more about the characters – BAD TURN is, after all, the 13th instalment of the series.
