Absence of Light

(Book 11 in the Charlie Fox series)
A Novella by

Natural disaster. Unnatural death. Welcome to Charlie Fox’s life. In this riveting crime thriller series, “Zoë Sharp and Charlie Fox both kick ass” (Mark Billingham, international bestselling author).

There you were, just minding your own business, and suddenly the earth split beneath your feet. Everything good, everything familiar tumbles around you in busted shards, or it’s ash, or is on fire. That’s the scene of the earthquake where Charlie’s working, helping to dig out the living and ID the dead. But it’s an all-too-apt metaphor for her personal life, which has shifted in an eye-blink from Getting’ By to Full-On Catastrophic. Again. Nothing is ever easy for Charlie, including finding evidence of a murder among the rubble.

“Crackling . . . The razor-edged action builds to a clever, poignant closing twist.” —Publishers Weekly
