(Nominated for the Barry Award for Best British Crime Novel) The eighth book starring Zoë Sharp's adrenaline-fueled heroine Charlie Fox, following Third Strike, takes Charlie deep undercover in the California cult Fourth Day. Five years ago, Thomas Witney went into Fourth Day trying to find evidence that the cult's charismatic leader, Randall Bone, was responsible for the death of Witney's son, but he never came out. Ex-special forces soldier Charlie Fox agrees to infiltrate the cult's stronghold—no real problem for someone with her mindset and training—but she is neither prepared for the lure of Randall Bone, nor for how easily he will pinpoint her weakness.

"Charlie Fox (née Charlotte Foxcroft) has worked hard to overcome horrific odds and train herself mentally and physically to be a valued member of the elite Armstrong-Meyers private security firm. But when the job calls for extracting a man from the alleged cult, Fourth Day, and the operation goes south, Charlie infiltrates the organization, whose charismatic leader, Randall Bane, views her discontent as aggravated by loss of control during a recent pregnancy and miscarriage, which she still hasn't revealed to her lover, Sean Meyers. While Charlie sees Bane as a healer, former cult leader Chris Sagar accuses Fourth Day of fostering terrorism. At odds with her employer and at a critical juncture with Meyers, Charlie gets help from LAPD Detective "Ritz" Gardner, and the two women try to avert a Waco-like tragedy. In the eighth installment in the series (not all have yet been published in the U.S.), Charlie invites comparison with Lee Child's Jack Reacher in both skills and moral sense, and her psychological complexity adds depth to her character and the series. The shocker of an ending will make readers especially anxious for Sharp's next adventure. Must reading for fans of action-packed, hard-edged thrillers."—Booklist (starred review)
