Sam's Song Publisher's Summary

Love hurts. For Derwena de Caro, songstress, female icon, and teenage dream, success brought drugs, alcohol, and a philandering boyfriend. It also brought wealth, fame, and a stalker, or so she claimed. And that's where I came in, to investigate the identity of the stalker, little realizing that the trail would lead to murder and a scandal that would make the newspaper headlines for months on end.

Love hurts. For me, Samantha Smith, enquiry agent, love arrived at the end of a fist. First I had to contend with an alcoholic mother who took her frustrations out on me throughout my childhood then my husband, Dan, who regarded domestic violence as an integral part of marriage. But I survived. I obtained a divorce, kept my sense of humor, and retained an air of optimism. I established my business and gained the respect of my peers. However, I was not prepared for Dan when he reentered my life or for the affection showered on me by Dr. Alan Storey, a compassionate and rather handsome psychologist.

Sam's Song. This is the story of a week that changed my life forever.

    For the first 33 years of my life I had no knowledge of my father, no idea what he looked like, his name, whether he was dead or alive. Then fate brought us together. Then, a year later, he decided to hire me. Although we had talked for a year, my father was still Gawain Morgan to me, a stranger, not my dad. Would the task of locating Frankie Quinn bring us closer together, or drive us further apart? Frankie Quinn was a con-man, a life-long villain, a member of my father's old gang. That's right, my father was a villain too, with dodgy contacts and sins he preferred to forget.
