User reviews about this book
By R3 fan
The first word that comes to my mind when I met Sam Smith is "spunky." This petite woman is hell-bent on pleasing her clients: first by tracking a stalker, then by finding a murderer. Then she stumbles upon something even more sinister.
Although she has it together in her occupation, she has psychological issues brought on by an abusive, alcoholic mother and ex-husband. She can fight the toughest criminals, but lets her hair fall into her face, hiding her emotions, when it comes to personal matters.
Sam is an endearing character. Her assessments of some of the people she encounters will make you laugh at her wicked mind. At other times, you'll cry at the pain she's suffered.
The story is worth reading for the events that unfold. But it has more. It delves into the effects drugs and alcohol have on people--not only those abusing the substances, but also the people they know. It results in domestic abuse, negative psychological perceptions of oneself, and so much more hurt and pain.
