Die Easy by Zoë Sharp is the 10th book in the “Charlie Fox” thriller series. Publisher: Pegasus, January 2013
In the sweltering heat of New Orleans, former Special Forces soldier-turned-bodyguard Charlie Fox faces her toughest challenge yet.
Professionally, she’s at the top of her game, but her personal life is in ruins. Her lover, bodyguard Sean Meyer, has woken from a gunshot-induced coma with his memory in tatters. It seems that piercing back together the relationship they shared is proving harder for him than relearning the intricacies of the bodyguard business. Working with Sean again was never going to be easy for Charlie, but a celebrity fundraising event in aid of still-ravaged areas of New Orleans should have been the ideal opportunity for them both to take things nice and slow. Until, that is, they find themselves thrust into the middle of a war zone.
When an ambitious robbery explodes into a deadly hostage situation, the motive may be far more complex than simple greed. Somebody has a major score to settle, and Sean is part of the reason. Only trouble is, he doesn’t remember why. And when Charlie finds herself facing a nightmare from her own past, she realizes she can’t rely on Sean to watch her back. This time, she’s got to fight it out on her own.One thing is for certain, though—no matter how overwhelming the odds stacked against her, or however hopeless the situation may appear—Charlie is never going to die easy.
WOW! This is an awesome read! This fast-paced action starts immediately as Charlie and Sean are in for the fight of their lives as they take on adversaries who want their client dead and with someone from Charlie’s past in the mix, the stakes are higher. This gripping drama was so intense that I could not put this book down as I wondered what was going to happen next. Zoe has created a complex, yet lovable character whose strength is shown in her thoughts and action as she handles what’s thrown at her with great aplomb. The author takes us on a thrilling ride from beginning to end and I can’t wait to see what directions this amazing series takes as we follow the exploits of Charlie and her friends.
