Book Description

Off Duty is a short story by the highly acclaimed crime thriller writer, Zoë Sharp. Published in e-format as part of the FOX FIVE short story collection, it features her ex-Special Forces soldier turned self-defence expert and bodyguard, Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Fox.

Off Duty finds Charlie taking time away from close protection after injury. She still finds trouble, even in an out-of-season health spa in the Catskill Mountains.

Praise for Zoë Sharp and Charlie Fox:

‘This five-pack collection of short stories [FOX FIVE] is about as good as it gets in the crime thriller genre. Protagonist Charlie Fox is a truly memorable – not to mention formidable – heroine. Author Sharp writes cleanly, cleverly, and convincingly.’ Wayne D Dundee, author of the Joe Hannibal series

‘Highly recommended.’ Gloria Feit, Crimespree magazine

‘This tension-filled and suspenseful collection is a thrilling read that will have you clamouring for more.’ Dru Ann Love,

‘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.’ Paul Goat Allen, Chicago Tribune

‘If you don't like Zoë Sharp there's something wrong with you. Go and live in a cave and get the hell out of my gene pool! There are few writers who go right to the top of my TBR pile − Zoë Sharp is one of them.’ Stuart MacBride

‘Anyone with a brain wants Charlie Fox for the girl next door. Funny, compassionate, and with moves that can − and do − kill, Charlie is the indelible creation of the remarkable Zoë Sharp.’ Gayle Lynds

Started off well, I was surprised by it's short length. I know it was described as a novella, but it was very short indeed.

The story is all right but due to my disappointment in being so short, I couldn't give it higher rating.

Late starter.

I love reading books by Zoe Sharp. The short stories are good but I always want more. Short stories are fun but I enjoy a long story best.

as with all the Charlie Fox series, I thoroughly enjoyed this one as well. Charlie Fox is a very enjoyable character to follow and good easy reading, the plot is not too complicated but has its twists.
