In the sweltering heat of New Orleans, former Special Forces soldier-turned-bodyguard Charlie Fox faces her toughest challenge yet. Her lover, bodyguard Sean Meyer, has woken from a gunshot-induced coma with his memory in tatters. Working with Sean again was never going to be easy for Charlie, but a celebrity fundraising event in aid of still-ravaged areas of New Orleans should have been the ideal opportunity for them both to take things nice and slow. Until, that is, they find themselves thrust into the middle of a war zone.
Somebody has a major score to settle, and Sean is part of the reason. Only trouble is, he doesn't remember why. One thing is for certain, though - Charlie is never going to die easy.
"Sharp delivers another solid entry in a series that consistently delivers a world-weary heroine who can outdo any man who crosses her path." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Breathlessly compelling and utterly real, Zoe Sharp will keep you turning pages till dawn." (Jeffrey Deaver)
"Fox is one of the most vivid and engaging heroines ever to swagger onto the pages of a book. Where Charlie goes, thrills follow, and Zoe Sharp keeps them coming hard and fast." (Tess Gerritsen, best-selling author of The Keepsake)

The Charlie Fox Magic Continues
Really can't compare the two, I can just say that the audio version allows one to enjoy the fact that Charlie is not American. Something that gets lost in the print version.
Charlie Fox is the female incarnation of Jack Reacher. They are both bad-asses taking no crap from those around them. Doesn't mean they don't get knocked around, however, they rebound and that's what counts. These characters are flawed but it's something they've accepted. Kudos to Zoe Sharp and Lee Child.
Justine Eyre seamlessly switched between each character's accent and emotion. She's one of the best narrators I've heard. Great tone quality as well as believable emotion.
No one moment. There are some great one-liners, a few what the___? where I actually yelled at the characters, and a few sad time moments. All a good book should give you.
This is the 10th Charlie Fox book. Run and get the others! I especially enjoyed some of the UK versions because they have not been Americanized yet. It's a vocab thing for me I suppose, but it allows the character of Charlie Fox to cement as a Brit a bit much more clearly.
