Sam, sculptor, amateur detective, and all round good time girl, starts her latest escapade chained to the ceiling of a dank cellar. No, it's not a wild night gone wrong, she's a prisoner with nothing to eat but Vegemite sandwiches. The action disconcertingly switches to a long prologue to Sam's incarceration. She's working on a film set as a stand in for Sarah, an actor who is playing a sculptor. Sarah resembles Sam quite a bit, and is playing opposite Sam's latest squeeze, the handsome Hugo. The scene setting goes on just a little bit too long, but eventually the action kicks in. As always, the dialogue is lively, the characters colourful, and Sam herself is reluctantly involved in murder and intrigue. Henderson manages to make her femme fatale independent and hard-hitting, yet realistically vulnerable both to a handsome man who knows how to push her love buttons, and a well-aimed 14-hole Dr Marten in the small of her back. The plot will keep you guessing, and the denouement is climatic, but if criticisms must be made, there are perhaps too many minor characters to keep track of, and a lot of irrelevant small talk: you feel like you know the crew, but you don't really care. Overall though, a fast-paced, light-hearted thriller. (Kirkus UK)
When Sam Jones wakes up handcuffed in a cellar she naturally assumes she is suffering the aftermath of a great night out. But then she recalls all too vividly being kidnapped from the car park of the film studios where her boyfriend Hugo is shooting a TV series.
