#1 in ‘THE CLOCK’ Action Thriller Series
Deadly. Damaged. Dangerous
“Shirin Reyes, a legendary rogue assassin, has come out of the cold with a vengeance”
In a world where the fate of many are dictated by the actions of a few, Shirin discovers a covert operation bent on taking control of the country’s intelligence network and gaining absolute power over the government.
When the hunter becomes the hunted, Shirin finds herself torn between her all consuming vendetta and the consequences her actions have on those she cares about.
“Charlie Moore’s Against the Clock is a burning churning thrill ride through the world of espionage/thrillers. From the first chapter (which was a little too sexually stimulating for my personal taste) to the book’s end, the reader is constantly awakened to sensory impressions that are visceral to say the least and over-the-top, on occasion. This rollercoaster novel is wild, fun, scary, and thoroughly enjoyable, and at times, pushes the envelope of believability.
Moore’s prose, in what I assume to be his first novel, provides much to be admired; it is rich in detail and tightly focused. The heroine/protagonist Shirin Reyes is extremely likeable, a quick-change artist able to assume personas with small changes in clothes, hair, or stature and as she fells each villain we cheer her on because this is how we would like to handle the scum-buckets we suffer in politics in today’s crooked world. The body count, however, is a bit high, and Reyes’ talent stretches the bounds of believability but if you just want a fast ride in which the lecherous leaders of today’s free world get their due, then sit back and appreciate the adventures as they come hurling past you.
This thriller manages to create genuine suspense as a sort of psychological detective story. With characteristic grace and skill, Moore manages to turn this cat-and-mouse game into something suspenseful. I would highly recommend this compulsively readable debut to anyone who enjoys thrillers, well written storylines, fleshed out characters and a purposeful plot.” –
