About this title
It should have been an easy introduction to Charlie Fox's new career as a bodyguard, working for the personal protection agency run by her ex-lover, Sean Meyer. Their trip to Florida together should have been a working holiday--and a chance to build on the fresh start they promised to make when they last worked together. All Charlie has to do is baby-sit Trey Pelzner, the gawky fifteen-year-old son of a rich computer programmer in Fort Lauderdale. The last thing anyone expected was a determined attempt to snatch the boy, or that Trey's father and their entire bodyguard team--including Sean--would disappear off the face of the earth at the same time. Now somebody out there wants the boy badly and they're prepared to kill anyone who gets in their way. Evading them, alone in unknown territory, takes all the skill and courage Charlie possesses. As hair-raising as a roller-coaster ride, First Drop skyrockets Zoë Sharp to the top of that exclusive list of suspense writers who are going places fast.From the Back Cover:

"Sharp's aim is dead-on--STUNNING."--"Publishers Weekly" (Starred Review)
After a tour of duty in the British Army, twenty-six year old Charlie Fox has excellent marksmanship and a sixth sense for danger.

"Intense . . . a nail-biting chase."--"Cleveland Plain Dealer"
The last thing anyone expected was a determined attempt on Trey's life. But soon Charlie discovers that not only has Trey's father gone missing, Sean and his entire bodyguard team have fallen off the map as well. Now it's up to Charlie--alone in an unknown territory, with no one she can trust--to protect Trey, and herself, against all imaginable odds .before the enemy strikes again. ""
