Killer Instinct by Zoë Sharp is the first in the Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Fox crime thriller series. When you read this book, you'll want to read the rest of the series to see what other thrilling adventures await Charlie Fox. Charlie's character is complex and believable. I liked her spunky point of view from the get-go. She is vulnerable and yet tough, steadfast in her beliefs of right and wrong, and with a desire to help others, even when putting herself in danger. Trained for the army Special Forces, she now teaches self-defense to women. Short on cash, she takes on a job as a bouncer in a new nightclub. Always believing that it is best to cool a confrontation than to escalate it, Charlie is not favored by her all-male team, until she shows them that she is not afraid of a fight. While working at the club, Charlie finds connections with the venue, rapes that have been happening in town, and the murder of her friend. The plot is full of surprises. As they story unfolds, you find out why Charlie is the person she is, what is really going on at the New Adelphi club, who is raping local women, and who wants to kill Charlie. When you think you have it figured out, there is a new twist. Set aside a few hours to enjoy this strong female protagonist. I surely did.
