*"Charlie Fox is absolutely my favourite female protagonist!"
*"It's an elegantly crafted thriller, engaging and enticing and I could not recommend it more."
*"This is a five-star book for sure."
*"Zoe Sharp has done it again and turned out another stonking-good read."
*"If you looked up 'page-turner' in the dictionary I would not be at all surprised to see a picture of the front cover of BAD TURN in lieu of a definition. If you like the Charlie Fox series, this is a must-read, but even if you've never read a Charlie Fox book before, this is still a must-read."
*"I couldn't tear myself away. And am now sitting in a holding pattern for the next Charlie Fox book. Can't wait."
*"One of my favourite authors is Zoe Sharp and, if you haven't had the pleasure of meeting her kick-butt character Charlotte 'Charlie' Fox, you are in for a treat."
*"Charlie Fox is back! I was hooked by the second page! The book is full of twists and turns that you never see coming. I was blown away from the big reveal at the end. You won't be able to put the book down. It is that good!"--This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Charlie Fox is a unique female protagonist who is feisty, brave, loyal and shows that she belongs working in a mostly male-dominated profession. Bad Turn is another well-written, thrilling read in this long-running series.

Bad Turn has all the classic elements we’ve come to expect; crackling action, tight plotting, multidimensional characters and whip-smart dialogue with a deliciously sardonic edge. However once again Zoe Sharp exceeded expectations.
I pre ordered this expecting to love it. What I got was an utterly delicious slice of balls-to-the-wall, intelligent, female-centric action. A juggernaut of action set piece after set piece meaning I devoured this with delight far, far too quickly. And it was even better than my high expectations anticipated.
Writing quality action that is as intelligent as it is exciting is a deceptively complex art. Too much description of the fight sequences and the pacing suffers and becomes like a badly executed game of twister (right punch to left shoulder...knee to groin...) but not enough is just as bad, leaving the reader lost. Bad Turn is that rare, tight and compelling novel that makes you fall through the hole in the page and SEE the story in glorious HD in your head; including all those compellingly brutal fights. That takes phenomenal authorial skill.
There’s truly no one else I know of in fiction like Charlie. Male characters in action roles are a dime a dozen but a truly compelling, realistic woman, competing in a man’s world as an equal, using brain as much as skill, technique as much as power, fortitude as much as integrity is sadly, incredibly rare. Charlie Fox in all her intricate, nuanced complexity is just exactly what we need more of.
Thank you , Ms Sharp for yet another truly fabulous novel. I’ve loved all the Charlie Fox novels but the fact they keep getting better and better is the best gift of all. More please, and quickly.
It's brave of Sharp to have made the decisions she has and no-one wants Charlie moping around like a love-sick tweenie - all the same, this book, good as it is, feels more generic as an exciting thriller with less of what made this series unique. Still, Charlie alone is always worth reading, and I'm looking forward to her coming back to the UK for the next episode.
Enter Zoe with Charlie, once again a fast paced, flowing adventure story. Thank goodness for two days of respite.
