Product description

About the Author

The British author Sharron Gold, was a continuity script supervisor for over twenty years on Major European and international films, eventually tiring of the superficial world, she moved to a small Austrian village, Hallstatt. She opened a boutique selling fashions and ethnic jewellery that she sourced on her travels, having always managed to spend the European winter months mostly in India where she supported Tibetan refugees. Finally she felt her life was perfect, until evil came her way in the form of a sick, psychotic couple. Overnight her life was turned into a living hell. SPIKED is her attempt to expose the people that did this to her and the hope to prevent it happening to others. This book is important for all of us, to help us become aware of the dangers of an ever increasing use of drugs to commit crimes. GHB is a typical 'date rape' drug as it is relatively easy to obtain, and it causes a rapid relaxing and disinhibitory effect. Moreover, since it is colourless and odour-free, it is easily added to the potential victim's drink without arousing any suspicion. These characteristics make it easy and less risky to perpetrate the crime. Additionally, GHB frequently causes the victim to be regarded as unreliable in the eyes of law-enforcement authorities because of changes in consciousness, perception, and anterograde amnesia, and at times hallucinations during and following the act. Since GHB is difficult to identify in the urine as it is quickly eliminated from the body, it is rarely collected as evidence of the crime. This drug is not routinely checked for in urine toxicology screening kits and is therefore likely to be missed at the emergency room. Doctors and other professionals working with sexual assault victims should be aware of the possibility of GHB intoxication, more often than not, of an unknowing victim. The drug is not only a date-rape drug but as a hypnotic drug it renders the victim incapable of doing anything other than comply. This is her true story.

I loved this book-- the way it is written makes it very suspenseful and it grabs you right away. I knew nothing about GhB and it was difficult to believe at first. My book club read this book together and we all found ourselves researching parts of the story on-line and were amazed to find it all to be true. I travel a great deal for work and it really changed the way that I think of strangers and some of my interactions. We were lucky enough to Skype with the author and Sharron is committed to getting the word out about this drug and the people who are using it to manipulate others. I feel guilty about enjoying a book about someone's harrowing experience so much-- in the end, it really stuck with me.

A shocking story I believe is true and I'm glad she is alive today to spread the word. I really need to read this again now as its laid out like a jigsaw everything slotted into place at the end. I read this book within a couple of days as I just needed to know why the whole way through

"A book of importance, not as a work of fiction but as a true account of how the using the drug GhB and hypnotism took over the mind of an innocent girl and made her a compliant mule from England to India and then back into Europe. In the introduction the book is called a work of fiction. As I read the story I became ever more convinced the book is totally autobiographical, a fact to which the author implies in the final pages. No writer could have described so convincingly the horrors she endured as she was manipulated into total submission. The importance of this book lies in exposure of the evils of GhB, particularly when combined with hypnotism. As a true account of a prolonged and cruel torture of a unusual kind and a exposure of the dangers ahead from Science's advances in mind controlling drugs, the book is a must read. For this reason I have no hesitation in giving it five stars. In my opinion the story needs is worthy of the attention of a major publishing house.

I just can't believe the struggle and torment you went through but yet how far and strong you are my heart goes out to the author. Being a young reader I cannot begin to explain the inspiration that has been provided by just one book and the knowledge that has been given. My mouth hung open in pure shock and I cannot thank you enough for sharing your story this book is one that everyone should finish and learn from xxx
