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.
