“Where Charlie goes, thrills follow, and Zoë Sharp keeps them coming hard and fast.”—Tess Gerritsen, author of The Keepsake

On Long Island, the playground of New York’s wealthy and privileged, Charlie Fox is tasked with protecting the wayward daughter of rich businesswoman Caroline Willner. It seems that an alarming number of the girl’s circle of friends have been through kidnap ordeals, and Charlie quickly discovers that the girl herself, Dina, is fascinated by the clique formed by these former victims.

Charlie worries that Dina's thrill-seeking tendencies will put both of them in real danger. But just as her worst fears are realized, Charlie receives devastating personal news. The man who put her partner Sean Meyer in his coma is on the loose.

She is faced with the choice between her loyalties to her client and avenging Sean, but the two goals are soon inextricably linked. The decisions Charlie makes now, and the path she chooses to follow, will have far-reaching consequences.

Reviewing the Evidence

And what sets her apart from a number of the wham-bam thriller writers is the characterisation – these are all immensely believable characters – and the continuing story arc for Charlie across the books.
