Hard Knocks

by Zoe Sharp

Charlie Fox is called upon to go undercover at an elite training school for bodyguards to investigate a spate of kidnappings and murders. She finds herself in several tight corners and soon realises there are secrets that people are willing to kill for. A fast paced thriller that's an easy read and a real page turner.


Hoffman picked up McKenna, who was starting to come round but was still groggy. Rebanks drew a Sig from inside his jacket and cocked it. Did the instructors go armed at all times, I wondered, or had they just been expecting trouble today?

'Okay now!' Rebanks shouted. The three of them jumped up, firing, and the rest of us ran for the trees.

We ran in an outward dispersal pattern. I ended up on the extreme left, a lot closer to the ambush than I would have liked. I resisted the urge to run directly away from the gunmen. Too many of us clumped together presented too tempting a target.
