Charlie meets everyone - but only once. 

You might meet him in a hospital, in a warzone, or at the scene of a traffic accident. Then again, you might meet him at the North Pole - Charlie gets everywhere. 

Sometimes he is sent as a courtesy, sometimes as a warning. Either way, this is going to be the most important meeting of your life. 

The End of the Day is the stunning new story from author Claire North: the voice behind the word-of-mouth bestseller The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August.
