Sharp's aim is dead on in her stunning US debut

Publishers Weekly boxed & starred review (for 'outstanding quality')

‘The guy in the passenger seat was closest. He got out first, so I shot him first. Two rounds high in the chest.’

It should have been an easy introduction to Charlie Fox’s new career as a bodyguard. In fact, it should have been almost a working holiday. She just has to look after the gawky fifteen-year-old son of a wealhy entrepreneur in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Trey Pelzner is theme park mad and in theory all Charlie has to do is baby-sit him on the rollercoasters.

The last thing anyone expected was a determined attempt to snatch the boy, or that Trey’s father and their entire close protection team—including Charlie’s boss, Sean Meyer—would disappear off the face of the earth at the same time.

Now somebody out there wants the boy badly and they’re prepared to kill anyone who gets in their way. Evading them, in a strange country, takes all the skill and courage Charlie Fox possesses.

As she soon discovers, once you’ve hit the first drop there’s no going back, and you’d better hang on tight because you’re in for a wild ride.
