Charlie meets everyone - but only once.

You might meet him in a hospital, in a warzone, or at the scene of 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 Richard and Judy Book Club author Claire North: the voice behind the word-of-mouth bestseller The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August.
