About The Book
Recovering from a brutal attack where she was savagely raped, university student Sam Smith attempts to rebuild her life and overcome the ongoing effects of her ordeal. Her ultimate goal is to bring her assailant to justice, but before she can do so her life and loves take a series of intriguing turns as she continues her sometimes unconventional education.
Eventually she is able to identify her attacker and decides to exact retribution in her own particular style, but during her preparations Sam becomes aware that her every move is being tracked by a mysterious organisation. To avoid detection by the police and also her hidden watchers,
Sam Smith attempts to commit the perfect crime. However in the aftermath of her vigilante action events change rapidly to bring about a most unexpected outcome.
Miss Smith Commits the Perfect Crime? is the first book in the Sam Smith Adventure Series and can be read as a standalone.
How many times when we talk about someone who has been brutally raped, we talk about them as “victims”? Lately I’ve read that we should always call them “survivors”, they survived one of the worst nightmares that someone can face and they are trying to overcome the pain and fear.
This is the story of Sam Smith, she was raped but she is trying to continue with her life. She has revenge in her mind never forgetting her assailant, but soon she will discover that someone is following her… why and who?
This had been a very interesting read, brave and intelligent; Sam doesn’t want to be a victim, she has learned personal defense and is ready to fight for her life; she has a plan, a revenge plan, but don’t expect something easy, her humour is dark and she has been planning it for a long time.
I don’t know what I liked most of this book, the main character, the plot or all the second characters involved in the action! Don’t expect to be bored in this book; it has all the ingredients to make a perfect thriller, maybe Miss Smith will commit a crime, but, let’s face it, who wouldn’t want revenge in her case? I can’t make any spoilers, but remember that dreaming is free, and sometimes the plan is much more interesting than the action, don’t you think?
About The Author
Guy Caplin worked in television broadcasting for over 40 years and is one of the few people to have achieved success in both the technical and artistic branches of the medium. He has worked with many celebrities including, the Beatles, Ella Fitzgerald, Bob Hope and Maria Callas.
He moved to ITV’s Yorkshire Television in 1969 as a Producer and Director of Sport, Outside Broadcasts and special events. Among the many programmes he devised was the quiz programme “Winner Takes All” fronted by Jimmy Tarbuck and Geoffrey Wheeler, which under his tenure was regularly amongst the Top Ten TV programmes and twice reached the coveted Number One Spot.
When the final series of the hit American programme Dallas ran into technical problems in Hollywood in 1989, Guy left YTV and joined a UK broadcast engineering company to try to come up with a solution. The solution proposed resulted in the creation of the DEFT process, which although too late to be used on Dallas, was used initially on the Simpsons and subsequently on Friends, Frasier, Superman and many others America series. DEFT was awarded an Emmy for outstanding technical achievement.
Back in the UK Guy owned and ran a company creating video productions for both broadcast and industry, was a freelance trainer at the BBC and a visiting tutor at the National School of Film and Television. For the past thirteen years Guy has also been regular lecturer for P&O cruises and Cunard and has effectively travelled twice around the world.
Now, having closed his video company, he spends his time writing under the name of Guy Rolands and has now completed four novels in the Sam Smith Adventure series. Having worked all over the world and encountered hundreds of remarkable characters, his experiences provide colour and intrigue to his work.
