Hired to protect the beautiful Simone and her little girl while searching for Simone's long-lost father, female bodyguard Charlie Fox confronts a ruthless enemy who will do anything to stop her, including leaving her alone and wounded in the middle of a frozen New England woods. By the author of First Drop. Reprint.

McMillan Palgrave

When the latest assignment for bodyguard Charlie Fox ends in a bloody shootout in a frozen New Hampshire forest, she’s left fighting for her life…

Charlie’s client Simone Kerse has just become a lottery millionaire—but he may not live long enough to enjoy her riches. Charlie was supposed to keep Simone’s troublesome ex-boyfriend at bay, and help her track down the father Simone had never really known—a relatively low-risk job.

But Simone’s father has secrets in his past that are about to come back and haunt him…and the arrival of his long-lost daughter may be the catalyst that blows his whole world apart. Now, the closer Charlie gets to the truth, the bigger threat she becomes. Only this time she’s in no fit state to protect anyone—least of all herself….

I discovered Zoe Sharp in a collection of short stories titled "Mystery Writers of America Presents Vengeance" put together by Lee Child. Enjoying her story and reading Child's glowing introduction led me to look for her work. Charlie Fox is a fantastic character, haunted and damaged but strong, hard and driven. Put together she is just vulnerable enough to make her accessible, makes her feel more real, which is lacking for many characters. My only disappointment was discovering this is actually the 6th Charlie Fox book, now I have to find the early ones.
