The fourth Fiddler & Fiora thriller, Just Enough Light to Kill, is at the printers, and will start shipping to stores the first week of April. This thriller -- in which Fiddler heads to the California-Mexico border to investigate the murder of a Customs Agent friend -- is one the series' best, and Time magazine named it one of the year's best suspense novels back when it first came out! this is a private eye/thriller series not to be missed.
More early praise for Zoë Sharp's Killer Instinct (on sale in May; also available in large print from Isis):
"Charlotte 'Charlie' Fox could give Cotton Malone a run for his money, but I think he'd enjoy every minute of it. Killer Instinct is spicy, smart, and entertaining. Zoë Sharp has a gift for place and character, making it seem as familiar as your own backyard. She draws out every emotion in the reader with some stylish prose. Well done." -- Steve Berry, best-selling author of The Paris Vendetta
"Charlie Fox is tough, compassionate, and kicks ass to protect others -- how could anyone not love her? Zoë Sharp is a master at writing thoughtful action thrillers, and Killer Instinct is no exception. Read it!" -- Meg Gardiner, Edgar Award-winning author of The Liar's Lullaby
