Samantha is the first book that I have read by this author but I can assure you that it won’t be the last. From the first page he had me captivated as I followed the journey of Samantha, a troubled girl from a privileged background who finds herself out on the streets through no fault of her own. The author’s attention to detail throughout the book is excellent and the characters were all easy to identify with.
Although Samantha is a short book, it is nonetheless a very satisfying read and I very much look forward to more works by this author.
This is a very riveting read. The only reason I read it in two sessions is because I have so much to do. I will be reading it again. Sam comes from a very privileged background, but she is drugged, raped and video-taped. Since her father has a weak heart she dare not go to the authorities or ask for any other kind of help. Girls have been known to disappear that tried. Will Sam get out of her predicament? You'll have to read it to find out. The ending is abrupt which is a real shame because the story and characters are really good.
In this short but powerful story, the reality of life smacks the reader in the face and makes you wonder if this is how many of today's so called "Ladies of the night" also started? Hopefully, it will also make female readers think twice before accepting a drink from that seemingly charming stranger.
This is an exciting story, well written with some good Liverpool background. The main characters are well brought to life. Samantha, the student from a good background, drugged and date-raped by a pimp, seems credible.
Some of the strands haven't been tied up at the end and maybe that's just what the author intended.
The book is quite short and you can read it in one sitting. Because it is so readable you may want to do just that.
I recommend it.
PS One or two pages seem to have got out of order but I've had this trouble before with Kindle down-loads
