Kat’s Review: So having finished book 9, I dove straight into this one and knew things would not have been easy for Charlie in the interim. Sean (her colleague and partner) has now returned to work with Charlie as a Close Protection Agent (aka Bodyguard) and Charlie just isn’t sure he is ready. Not only is he still recovering from a serious head injury that put him in a coma, but he still has a loss of memory for a few years in his past and that has a severe impact on Charlie. Their latest job is supposedly an easy one, however as with most things involving Charlie Fox nothing is ‘easy’.
Blake Dyer is their client and Charlie and Sean are employed to ensure his safety during a benefit in New Orleans to raise funds for those affected by Hurricane Katrina. The first quarter of the book does nothing but highlight the problems that Charlie is up against as Sean seems to have reverted back to his time in the Military and all of his finesse and business savvy seems to have gone out the window along with his memory. Once the real action gets underway it almost has an action movie feel to it as many people are taken hostage in the worst possible place!
This book was a lot more fast paced than the last one and I found myself feeling like it was a much pacier and more exciting read than the last one. The reader gets to see Charlie at her absolute best and all I can say is that I wouldn’t want to annoy this woman as she is a force to be reckoned with. There’s also an ongoing story thread that gets continued in this book relating to an assault on Charlie many years before. It seemed like the action, trouble and death defying things continued chapter by chapter right up to the very end. This book was one that you didn’t want to put down and as the story continued I felt myself disliking Sean more and more as time went on. By the end of the book, the epilogue just seemed to put the icing on the cake with lots of possibilities for the next book. The follow on to this is the Novella Absence of Light. Keep your eyes peeled as this I am already reading with a view to picking up book 12 VERY soon!!!!
Wow, Sharp really puts her characters through it! One of the things I love about this series is that Sharp never cops out -with no sentimentality, no easy, happy-ever-after endings, our characters are always on the edge. This is a raw, sometimes brutal, read - not because of the body count (which is particularly high in this book) but precisely because our characters find killing an unnerving experience and one not to be taken lightly.
You do really need to read the last few books in order as since Third Strike they're following an overarching plot arc and to read the latest one without following the emotional coils and wrenches of Fourth Day and Fifth Victim especially will be to miss out.
At this series' heart is the fraught, complex and extremely troubled relationship between Charlie and Sean Meyer - and this outing winds their association up even tighter.
Sharp is an uncompromising writer - and this is brilliant. Highly recommended.
In this latest episode, Charlie Fox has to find out just how much she can rely on Sean Meyer, former insructor, mentor, lover and coma victim. Charlie isn't allowed a fairy tale post coma recovery of her partner and the stress of having to work with someone who is no longer predictable adds to the suspense of the book.
Improvising in a situation without a weapon, Charlie uses all her skills to survive and keep people safe... in a situation where she can't trust anyone to be whom they seem.
Life is rarely full of completely resolvable situations and the research and writing in this book doesn't disappoint. Half a can of worms tidied up, two more opened. Read, be scared, cheer for the goodies and look at your maglite with new eyes!
Hurry up with book 11 please!
Most books at this stage (10 books in) start to get a bit stale or repetitive but this is going from strength to strength. Each book is very different and whilst Charlie's personal life and her ongoing issues are in each book, you could still read this as a standalone.
Roll on book 11!!
