Item Details

"A self-defense expert with a motorbike and an attitude, Charlie Fox doesn't need to go looking for trouble. It generally finds her. House-sitting for a friend seemed like an easy favor at first, but the house in question is in the Lavender Garden Estate. Teenage gangs are running riot and Charlie's desperate neighbors have been forced to employ an expensive-- and ruthless-- security firm to apply rough justice where the legal kind has failed. The situation gets even uglier when a young Asian boy is fatally wounded in what appears to be a racially motivated shooting. Caught in the middle of an urban battlefield, Charlie's more than able to take care of herself, but then she's faced with a spectre from her army past. As the tensions rise, lives will depend on Charlie working out just whom she can really trust"--P. [4] of cover.
