Product Description

#1 in 'THE CLOCK' Action Thriller Series

Shirin Reyes, a legendary rogue assassin, has come out of shadows with a vengeance.
In a world where the fate of many are dictated by the actions of a few, Shirin discovers a covert operation bent on taking control of the country's intelligence network and gaining absolute power over the government.
Driven by revenge, Shirin keeps moving forward, hunting, and being hunted, from one battlefield, ambush, and gun fight, to the next.
When the hunter becomes the hunted, Shirin finds herself torn between her all consuming vendetta and the consequences her actions have on those she cares about.

"If you're looking for a Thriller with truckloads of fast paced action, this is the action thriller for you"

Q&A with Friends and Fans
Q: How did ‘The Clock’ Action Thriller series come about?
A: I’m a big fan of espionage books, spy thrillers, fast paced thrillers and well written action packed stories. So when the time came, there was no question; I wanted to write the kind of book that I love to read. I really wanted to make it one of those fast paced books that pushes action thrillers to a new level of Adrenalin.
The idea that would become Momentum, and the whole series, came from a graphic novel I was developing at the time. It was in that vein; wild, crazy, fun, scary and thumping with action. The story of a de-sanctioned assassin working against powerful enemies in the pursuit of justice became a solid vehicle for me to explore just how far a person would be willing to go, and how much of themselves they were willing to sacrifice to bring closure to their pain. That quickly developed into the action packed adventure series 'The Clock'.
What I loved about writing this series was the integration of an explosive action packed story with strong elements of mystery, suspense and romance. It was such a thrill to write, and I'm hoping my readers and fans feel the same about reading it.

Q: Each book in the series reads like a movie. Was that the intention when you wrote them?
A: Absolutely. I live and breathe the writing process. I visualize every scene, every character nuance, every sight, smell, movement, emotion.. you get the idea. There has been chatter about it being made into a movie. At this stage, there’s nothing official to report. But stay tuned...

Q: The action scenes are so fast, and the fights so well described. Can you tell us more about your process?
A: I’m glad fans and reviewers are saying that! Contrary to what we see in movies, real life hand to hand combat and even gun fights, happen very quickly. My martial arts background, and firearms training definitely helps, and I have a great technical advisor and contacts with specialist skill-sets. I rehearse most of the fight scenes myself, and have someone time them with a stopwatch. They are real in the sense that the techniques are real, the speed is real, the effect is real.
When I read spy stories or any action thriller, I'm looking for action that is fast, intelligent, and stretches the boundaries of the genre. So naturally, that's what I love to write as well.

Q: Momentum is part one of the action thriller series, how many parts will there be?
A: Good question. “The Clock” action thriller series will officially have three parts. Part one and two are available now, with the third coming soon. I’m about to release a Prequel to Momentum, titled “Dark Days”. Watch this space.
So, chronologically the series will look like this;
1. Dark Days (prequel Novella)
2. Momentum (part 1)
3. The Hunted (part 2)
4. Redemption (part 3)

HASH(0x99ca2864) out of 5 stars 50 Shades of Red March 28 2014
By Michael Sherer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
After years of kicking around the world to exotic places, rock-climbing martial artist Charlie Moore returned to his native Sydney, Australia, and his childhood passion—writing. Gaining experience as a ghostwriter, Moore has struck out on his own with the first in a new spy thriller series, AGAINST THE CLOCK, featuring Shirin Reyes, a female version of…Charlie Moore.

If you like heroes who are more powerful than a locomotive, can leap tall buildings in a single bound, and run faster than a speeding bullet, this is definitely the series for you. That may seem like exaggeration, but Shirin Reyes drags a full-grown man down the aisle of an airplane and slams him against a bulkhead, dodges more speeding bullets than you can count, and leaps a...well, you’ll just have to find out for yourself.

Suffice it to say, the stock characters we’ve all grown to love and hate are here in full flower—the megalomaniacal intelligence director who has dirt on everyone and isn’t afraid to use it; the mysterious older puppet master behind the scenes who moves both heroes and villains around the city like chess pieces; the sadistic enforcer who plays both sides of the fence; the studly and competent rogue spy who becomes Shirin’s sidekick; the brave and talented innocents who get dragged into danger because of Shirin’s vulnerability (yes, she’s human after all). And they all play their parts to near perfection, propelling the action with jet fuel toward a satisfying conclusion that opens the door to Shirin’s next adventure.

If all this sounds cartoonish or straight out of a comic book, be forewarned, the content can be graphic. The book opens with a sex scene detailed enough to make E.L. James blush, and the body count quickly rises into double digits, with many dispatched in the early going very messily.

Moore writes action well, and though this doesn’t pretend to be literature or even genre fiction on the order of Le Carre, Greene or Cruz Smith, it did keep me turning the pages past my bedtime. There were a few nits that might have been caught by the keen eye of a copy editor, and one or two spots where the strands suspending my disbelief frayed to the breaking point (where does one acquire a silenced semi-automatic pistol in a hospital after one has just been wheeled out of surgery and into ICU, anyway?). But when all was said and done, I didn’t begrudge Moore the lack of sleep.

HASH(0x99ca2ab0) out of 5 stars ACTION PACKED THRILLER, WOULD MAKE A GREAT MOVIE 👍👍 April 5 2014
By EMBLA - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
WOW! This is a first time thriller for Charlie Moore. It is exceptionally well written, highly charged, fast phased and gripping. I can honestly say that this thriller is in the top 5 best I've read. The story starts with a highly charged sex scene, where the reader is invited as a voyeur, however it is there for a reason. Every word in this story is there for a reason. The book is extremely well crafted, I would say by an author who has stuck with the grit of writing and honed his style to a near perfection. Charlie Moore has already established a staying power as a popular writer. With one book. That's a feat only few can master. I have seen few writers write a first good book, just to see them loose the bottom of it all in the second and third book. By reading Mr. Moor's first book, I can already see that he is definitely not in that category at all. His writing skills are already superb.

This is a thriller like no other, the people in the story are evil and some sociopathic. I started questioning Shirin Reyes vengeance because of all the violence and bloodshed she left in the wake. Well, not all of it is hers. As I read on the picture became a lot bigger and clearer. It all made sense. The book is charged with technology, corruption, new modern concepts in a thriller. And oh yes, a lot of blood, gore and splattering brain matter, YAKES! What I find highly interesting in this fast phased thriller, even though there is very little time, the author manages to put in people feelings, their pondering, fear and doubt which makes them so utterly human, even some of the bad ones.

I am very excited that there is obviously a sequel coming, which is highly indicated in the end. I can say with confidence that Charlie Moore is now one of my favorite writers, no escape now, from now on he's gonna have to write a lot of books for me ;)

The only thing I can find to complain about in this story, are little and very rare nuances in the language because the author is Australian and I'm an American. Oh well it's not really his problem I'm just being USA centric.

HASH(0x99ca2a74) out of 5 stars Cant wait for the screenplay March 11 2014
By Stephen Parry - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This fast paced action thriller has all the ingredients, intrigue, cross and double cross, political sabotage and a lust for power that leaves you wanting more. It's hint of psycho eroticism also leaves you with an appetite for more. I can't wait to see if there is a sequel, or even better a screenplay as I could see this turned into a fantastic movie. Shirin Reyes is the epitome of a scorned woman, with the skills and capability to exact her revenge on those who have wronged her. Charlie Moore you have done an outstanding job, I hope you deliver more of this top shelf material and hopefully also on the big screen !

HASH(0x99ca2d68) out of 5 stars Great action but abrupt ending. July 3 2014
By L. R. Werner - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The quality of writing is good. The book holds your attention but does not give adequate detail in describing the background and motivations of the villains. Maybe these details are in a different book. The reason why I only gave the book 3 stars is because of its abrupt ending. It's as if the author concluded he had written enough pages so he ended the book in a way that makes a reader unsatisfied. The author may think that this will motivate the reader to buy other books in a series.

HASH(0x99ca2dc8) out of 5 stars "Don't Miss Out On the High Action Novel of the Year" March 24 2014
By Nancy L. Silk, Author/Reviewer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This stunning novel, written by Australian Author Charlie Moore, is the fastest paced story I've ever read. It starts off with a very rich man meeting a lovely gal at a bar and taking her to his suite for a little play time. This woman is demure, very feminine, with smooth, tanned skin, and yet very muscular. When she leaves the suite, the security guard smoothly drops a tracking device in her handbag. Trent Barratt's team starts to track her, though no one seems to know who she is. But they will soon find out as she takes out three of Trent's team and escapes. Can this be the same demure woman? She has speed and intense alertness like a leopard. Trent had her in his scope, but then she disappeared. Director Selig would like to get rid of Trent, but he's informed that Trent is needed to find this woman and kill her. We soon learn this woman is Shirin Reyes, who once worked for the Agency under Director Selig. She had never failed her missions, but was an irritant to Selig. However, when her husband is murdered, she becomes adamant about finding all who were involved with his death. Who can she be working for? Or, better yet, who is she trying to bring down? Does she know that Selig had her husband killed? "Hell has no wrath like a woman scorned?" Shirin is seeking revenge. But all these movements of agents, assassinations, torture, and escape will make little difference when Operation Sandstone will be placed into action in about 6 1/2 hours. Did I mention this was fast paced? It's extremely well written, captivating and very suspenseful. The story line is potent, and you won't want the clock to run out until ... well, until perhaps the world might be saved? Read this story, your adrenalin will rise!
