My Dad said 'Have you read any of these Charlie Fox novels, then? Female Reacher, you know.' Well, you got to give it a go with that sort of recommendation. Thankfully Charlie is not a female Reacher, she's much more interesting and human. All too often the heroes of this sort of fiction have an unlikely reserve of knowledge and skill that makes them virtually unbeatable. Rather cleverly Miss Sharp has created a character with useful skills but also an element of vulnerability - when the conflicts arise you can never be too sure that Charlie will prevail.

I'm not sure the plot is particularly revelatory - all the basics of the thriller skeleton are there - but it's interesting to see this kind of novel set in a provincial location; the lack of exotic location makes it a little more real and intimate. So we have an interesting central character, a different location and a plot that's good enough to keep you interested. What's not to like?

Now looking forward to the next in the series. This could develop into a must-read series a la Reacher but with a human side added.

If you like US female PIs (VI Warshawski, Kinsey Millhone) then you'll like Charlie Fox.
Charlie is tough. She teaches women's self-defence (which she took up after being raped in the army), rides a motorbike and is very independent.
The book starts with Charlie's friend Clare being attacked during karaoke night at a local nightclub by reigning champion Susie Hollins. Charlie deals with the attack and is offered a job as a bouncer by the clubs owner. Hours later Susie Hollins is found dead – the latest victim of a homicidal rapist that has been terrorising the local community. Charlie suspects a link between the nightclub and the homicidal rapist and she begins to investigate.
The book moves along at a cracking pace and Charlie is a believable tough heroine. The identity of the killer may be obvious in a plot that has been used many times before, but Charlie is interesting enough to carry you through.

I wasn't expecting to enjoy this as much as I did, and it was set in Britain for a change, what a great book.I loved the main character, and there were plenty of twists and turns to keep me guessing, I stayed up way too late reading as its such a fast pace its hard to stop.I'm so pleased to see that there are plenty more books in this series to read, I can't wait, I love discovering a new writer and a main character that I instantly connect with, its what reading is all about.I love it!

This is a great book that starts a superb series. All the Charlie Fox books are fabulous and there are story arcs that sevelop between books meaning they need to be read in the right order. This is the first, followed by Riot Act.
Charlie is a very strong and independent woman.She is ex army special forces. she teaches self defence and she sometimes works as a bouncer. She is intelligent, likeable and believable. Although outwardly she appears very together, inside is a deep emotional vulnerability caused by serious violence and betrayal in her life. Charlie is the kind of woman who doesn't run from her fears, she embraces them and this leads to her becoming involved in dangerous situations.
If you are looking for a strong story with a heroine worthy of your admiration, lots of action and some cracking fight scenes, this is the one.

I really enjoyed Killer Instinct, and thought Charlie Fox was great. She is tough and independent and is certainly not someone to mess with i'd rather have her on my side than against me.
I'm just starting the series after reading the book a while back, and since seeing so many good reviews on the series, i decided to read it again to jog my memory, i'm so glad i did. i knew i'd read it but couldnt remember a lot of the story. And now i can't wait to read others in the series!

Being somebody that buys more than I read, I have that nagging feeling that I am missing out when people get excited over authors I have never read. Yes I know, I have issues; don't get me started! When I saw on my lovely Facebook page that people were excitedly chattering about Zoe Sharp I immediately Googled her and realised that she has been writing for the best part of ten years. How dare I not know about this crime author, especially being a British female author? I immediately ordered her first release in the series featuring Charlie Fox and eventually got around to it.

Charlie Fox is an ordinary sort of woman and within the first few chapters I decided that I liked her very much. Charlie teaches women self-defence, prefers to dress in jeans and had a passion for riding motorbikes. Charlie was kicked out of the army for reasons unknown to the reader early on and although she is certainly not without issues I loved her no-nonsense attitude. When Charlie is offered a job working for the security at the New Adelphi club she has no idea that a few hours after her tussle with Susie Hollins in the club, that she would be found dead a few hours later.

This is the catalyst for a string of events that put Charlie's life on the line. There are many authors and books out there in this genre and although this wasn't necessarily one that stood out by a mile, it certainly whets my appetite for Charlie and her life. The characters are easy to read and the plot twisted enough to hold your interest well into the early hours. I realised at around the halfway mark that were many more layers to the story than I originally thought.

I realised pretty early on that this would be a series I would stick with.
