While finishing her college degree, she learns Jujitsu and Krav Maga, drives a getaway car for an undercover agent, and saves an underage Russian girl from human trafficking. She’s a natural when it comes to surveillance and protecting others, but someone is stalking her which leads to a new life she never dreamed of.
Sam is a strong and intelligent protagonist who kicks ass and I look forward to finding out what other missions are in store for her. Though there are love interests in this book, it’s always refreshing to see a young beautiful woman who isn’t all about dumping her dreams for a man.
Overall, this is an intriguing and fast-paced crime thriller with memorable characters and a fascinating journey with several twists and turns. Certainly a promising series to look forward to.
Thank you to Mr. Rolands for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
First, I will I will tell you more about the first book in the series, Miss Smith Commits the Perfect Crime, which is categorized as Women’s Action & Adventure Fiction. When we first meet university student Sam Smith, she is crawling through a vast, stinky pig farm in the dark of night. As we get to know her more, we learn that she is…
Committed to justice
Excellent at everything she does
Perfectly under control
...among other things.
So, we have a wonderful and fresh new character to bond with. We also have a book that is well-written, as perfect as Miss Smith herself. Written in the lean and precise style of a class British crime thriller, this book has memorable characters, and a plot with just enough twists and turns to be fun. We learn special spy skills.
Leeds and Yorkshire provide the setting, which I liked because it is a venue I don’t visit often in books. I even noted the marvelous use of the passive voice- it really adds some drama! A touch of humor finishes my list of superlatives. Here’s an example. A man on his deathbed explains his actions, “I’ve made my bed. Now I must lie in it.”
What happens to Miss Smith as the book unfolds? Plenty. She meets Ari, who is a great guy who believes in the “just cause”. She goes from being the victim of a brutal crime to becoming a secret agent. But first, she has a lot of loose ends to tie up.
As I have much in common with Miss Smith, I did some investigating and discovered the following about the author, Guy Rolands. This is the pen name of former TV producer and director Guy Caplin. During his exciting career, he created many shows for the UK ITV network. Over the past fifteen years, he has been a guest lecturer for P&O and Cunard, averaging around three or four cruises a year. At the same time, he produced corporate videos for an international company throughout Europe and Scandinavia.
Fantastic book. I hope Netflix comes calling at your door soon, Mr. Rolands. Thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for a digital advance review copy. This is my honest review.
