Bad Turn


Charlie Fox book thirteen

“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."

ARC review by goodreads reader K,Nz



a standalone crime thriller featuring CSI Grace McColl and DC Nick Weston

“I’m used to cool, hard killers—in fiction that is—but I don’t think I’ve ever come across a cool, hard killer as vulnerable as Edith Airey… Bisley-grade crack-shot, she could drop you at half a mile…"

John Lawton, bestselling author of the Joe Wilderness and Inspector Troy thrillers

zoe sharp the blood whisperer


An exciting standalone crime thriller from Zoë Sharp

"The Blood Whisperer is a cracking, compulsive read: once you've read the electrifying first few pages, you'll probably develop intense feelings of annoyance towards anyone or anything that takes you away from it and the wonderful, gutsy, spiky heroine. I loved every word of this brilliant, mind-twisting thriller and even yelped out loud at one of the genius twists."

Bestselling crime author, Elizabeth Haynes

Nominated for Barry Award for Best British Crime Novel 2010

"Charlie Fox invites comparison with Lee Child’s Jack Reacher in both skills and moral sense, and her psychological complexity adds depth to her character and the series. The shocker of an ending will make readers especially anxious for Sharp’s next adventure. Must reading for fans of action-packed, hard-edged thrillers."

Charlie Fox book seven

"Ill-tempered, aggressive and borderline psychotic, Fox is also compassionate, introspective and highly principled: arguably one of the most enigmatic − and coolest − heroines in contemporary genre fiction. Male and female crime fiction readers alike will find Sharp's writing style addictively readable − one of the very best crime fiction sagas out there."

Paul Goat Allen, Chicago Tribune

Charlie Fox book six

"I should know better. When I need to get up early I should not read Zoë Sharp when I go to bed. Second Shot had me get out of bed, make coffee and stay up till I was done. Quite simply, Zoë Sharp kicks ass. The action scenes are ultra real, her descriptions are magic, and her pacing perfect. SECOND SHOT is a direct hit, center and clean through. I urge you not to miss this book."

"Sharp’s aim is dead on in her stunning US debut, the fourth book to star ultra-cool biker chick Charlie Fox. Action-packed, tightly plotted and with an irresistible first-person narration, this crisp, original thriller should win Sharp plenty of American fans."

Charlie Fox book one (with Foreword by Lee Child)

"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."
