RIOT ACT: Charlie Fox book two is the second in Zoe Sharp's highly acclaimed Charlotte 'Charlie' Fox crime thriller series. 'I am a violent man, Miss Fox,' Garton-Jones said, without bravado or inflection. 'I can - and will - do whatever is necessary to control this estate. Remember that.' A self-defence expert with a motorbike and an attitude, Charlie Fox doesn't need to go looking for trouble. It generally finds her. House-sitting for a friend seems like an easy favour at first but the house in question is in the Lavender Gardens estate. Teenage gangs are running riot and Charlie's desperate neighbours have been forced to employ an expensive - and ruthless - security firm to apply rough justice where the legal kind has failed. The situation gets even uglier when a young Asian boy is fatally wounded in what appears to be a racially motivated shooting. Caught in the middle of an urban battlefield, Charlie's more than able to take care of herself but then she comes face to face with a spectre from her army past. As the tensions rise, lives will depend on Charlie working out just who she can really trust ... Praise for RIOT ACT and Charlie Fox 'Sharp's first novel, Killer Instinct was a good read, but within the first few pages of Riot Act she surpasses herself. She succeeds in bringing the characters alive and Charlie Fox makes a powerful and attractive heroine. Equally, her other characters work well and she succeeds in creating snappy dialogue and mixing it well with action. At times, Riot Act feels slightly reminiscent of Minette Walters' 'Acid Row' ... (Sharp) takes her Lancashire setting, throws in a great deal of action and creates a fast-paced novel that is guaranteed to build on the reputation created by her debut novel and make her known as an up-and-coming talent in the crime world.' Luke Croll, Murder Mayhem Book Club 'Ill-tempered, aggressive and borderline psychotic, Fox is also compassionate, introspective and highly principled: arguably one of the most enigmatic - and coolest - heroines in contemporary genre fiction.' Paul Goat Allen, Chicago Tribune
