#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.
"Shirin is unrelenting, unstoppable, and uncompromising."
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.
A note from the Author
“Aside from the non-stop action, and the character-driven plot, this book really tells the story of how far a person is willing to go to get justice, and what they’re willing to sacrifice of themselves to find the truth, and to protect those they care about.
I wanted to explore the concept that a person can be flawed, can be struggling to cope with personal demons, but still be strong, and heroic.
Not only did I want to leave people with a wild, crazy, fun experience in reading this book, but I also wanted to give them depth of characters, personalities, and moments they would remember.”
Charlie Moore was born and raised in Sydney, Australia. He started work on his first full length novel at age 18. When running through final edits for the book, he put it aside; wanting to live and experience some of the adventures his characters were thrust into. He became an accomplished martial artist, winning his first full contact fight by TKO and gaining over 30 medals before retiring from competition. He traveled the globe, got lost in dangerous parts of the world, swam with sharks, jumped out of planes, and became a Private Investigator.
Resuming his passion for writing, Charlie started ghost writing to build and harness his skill, and in mid 2012 "Against the Clock" was born.
Charlie now shares his time between rock climbing with his wife, and writing deadly action-packed thrillers.
"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." - D. West (VINE VOICE)
