McMillan Palgrave
"Take it from me, getting yourself shot hurts like hell."
When the latest assignment for ex--Special Forces soldier turned bodyguard Charlie Fox, ends in a bloody shootout in a frozen forest of New Hampshire, she's left fighting for her life, with her client dead.
Simone Kerse had just become a lottery millionaire but never lived long enough to enjoy her riches. Charlie was supposed to keep Simone's troublesome ex-boyfriend at bay and accompany her on a trip to track down the father Simone had never really known---a relatively low-risk job.
But Simone's father has secrets in his past that are about to come back and haunt him, and the arrival of his long-lost daughter may be the catalyst that blows his whole world apart. But the closer Charlie gets to the truth, the bigger threat she becomes. Only this time she's in no fit state to protect anyone, least of all herself….

I discovered Zoe Sharp in a collection of short stories titled "Mystery Writers of America Presents Vengeance" put together by Lee Child. Enjoying her story and reading Child's glowing introduction led me to look for her work. Charlie Fox is a fantastic character, haunted and damaged but strong, hard and driven. Put together she is just vulnerable enough to make her accessible, makes her feel more real, which is lacking for many characters. My only disappointment was discovering this is actually the 6th Charlie Fox book, now I have to find the early ones.
