Zoe Sharp's novels have been nominated for numerous awards including the Edgar, Anthony, Barry (twice), Benjamin Franklin, and Macavity Awards in the United States, as well as twice for a CWA Dagger Award in England, where she lives.
"The only blurb on the front cover, from Lee Child, captures her completely: `If Jack Reacher were a woman, he'd be Charlie Fox.' What more can-or needs to-be said? Highly recommended." -- Ted Hertel, Deadly Pleasures "The phrase `strong female character(s)' crops up a lot in reviews of crime and thriller titles and this is still seen as sufficiently uncommon as to be worth commenting on when an author gets it right. And sadly, there are too many times when authors don't. But there's no danger of Zoe Sharp falling short. Sharp's action scenes remind me of the incomparable and ever-inventive Peter O'Donnell." -- Crime Review (UK) "Sharp's series featuring the troubled and violent Charlie stands out for its knowledgeable and convincing situations and well-crafted action sequences. When Charlie talks tactics, weapons, or reconnaissance, it rings true. Sharp writes her as emotionally disillusioned and vulnerable but never helpless. Nonstop action and an intricate plot weave together to create another thrill ride for fans of Sharp's heroine." -- Kirkus Reviews "Charlie is a highly skilled killer, well aware of her capability for violence, with a moral underpinning that adds to her complexity, particularly here. Gritty, hard-hitting, all-around outstanding crime fiction." -- Booklist (starred)
