The first book in the Sam Harris Series sets the scene for the career of an unwilling heroine, who undertakes a series of adventures set in remote sites in Africa and South America. Set in the late 1980s and 90s, the author examines themes such as women working in formerly male domains, and what constitutes a normal existence, in the context of the corruption and violence found in these sites.
Sam’s home life provides a contrast to her adventures and feeds her need to escape. Her attachment to an unsuitable boyfriend is the thread running through her romantic life, and her attempts to break free provide an insight into her character.
Based on the real-life adventures of the author, the settings and characters have an authenticity that will connect with readers who enjoy adventure fiction and mysteries set in remote settings with realistic scenarios.
