Overview

The author shares the shocking true account of how overnight her life was turned into a living hell, after her drink was spiked with GhB - a drug that can virtually turn anyone into a willing slave, combined with the potentially lethal power of hypnosis, gang stalkers on two continents, the latest technology for monitoring and recording all voyeuristic activity, outwardly "respectable" criminals send her on a journey into a 21st century hell which defies imagination, gravely endangering her physical and mental health and leaving her destitute. How does anyone survive such an ordeal? What are the effects on the victims of mind altering and so called "truth" drugs? How does a woman caught in the net of gang stalkers escape? How does she rebuild her life and start the process of seeking justice against the perpetrators? Her only weapon is her continuity trained memory. Over the three months she was drugged, she mentally kept track of everything that happened like a continuity girl on her own nightmare. As she battles with the withdrawal from the forced addiction, the hundreds of pages she has mentally written down float around in front of her. In a race against time, she has to pick up the pages, number them and turn them into a book as fast as possible. This is her shocking story. REVIEWSHorrifying! August 24th - At first I had a hard time getting into this book. It felt like the writer was kind of "all over the place" and things weren't making sense, after a little while, you realize that was how Ms. Gold was experiencing her life at the time. I started to pay more attention, and the story that unfolded was shocking and horrific. It takes balls to put a story out when all of those people are still out there.Hard to put down! Robert Priebe I met the author a few weeks ago at her shop in Hallstatt. My wife was trying on a dress and I picked up one of two copies of Spiked lying on a table. I asked if the story was true. I am a police chief in California and had investigated sexual assaults involving "date rape" drugs. When the author, Sharron, found out I was in law enforcement she begged me to read and review her book and to give it an honest review. I promised her I would, and I'm glad I did. The story is compelling and kept me involved and anxious to read more, There's my honest assessment but I am equally honest in saying I recommend everyone make effort to read it because the story is more than worth it. I could see this story becoming an excellent movie. For those contemplating this book, do it!One very brave woman - Janette Hallon 4 July This is a very complex, compelling and intriguing read. Sharron has had an extraordinarily life changing series of events happen to her. Any woman, single or not must read this to be aware of just what could happen - anytime and any place.I couldn't put the book down - DJEon 7 June Bought this book as top seller. Interesting reading. I couldn't put the book down .

About the Author

The British author Sharron Gold, was a continuity script supervisor for over twenty years on Major European and international films, eventually tiring of the superficial world, she moved to a small Austrian village, Hallstatt. She opened a boutique selling fashions and ethnic jewellery that she sourced on her travels, having always managed to spend the European winter months mostly in India where she supported Tibetan refugees. Finally she felt her life was perfect, until evil came her way in the form of a sick, psychotic couple. Overnight her life was turned into a living hell.
SPIKED is her attempt to expose the people that did this to her and the hope to prevent it happening to others.
This book is important for all of us, to help us become aware of the dangers of an ever increasing use of drugs to commit crimes.
GHB is a typical 'date rape' drug as it is relatively easy to obtain, and it causes a rapid relaxing and disinhibitory effect. Moreover, since it is colourless and odour-free, it is easily added to the potential victim's drink without arousing any suspicion. These characteristics make it easy and less risky to perpetrate the crime. Additionally, GHB frequently causes the victim to be regarded as unreliable in the eyes of law-enforcement authorities because of changes in consciousness, perception, and anterograde amnesia, and at times hallucinations during and following the act.
Since GHB is difficult to identify in the urine as it is quickly eliminated from the body, it is rarely collected as evidence of the crime. This drug is not routinely checked for in urine toxicology screening kits and is therefore likely to be missed at the emergency room. Doctors and other professionals working with sexual assault victims should be aware of the possibility of GHB intoxication, more often than not, of an unknowing victim.
The drug is not only a date-rape drug but as a hypnotic drug it renders the victim incapable of doing anything other than comply. This is her true story.

Not what I thought it would be about. Rather boring to be honest. Did not understand a lot of it.

This book is well crafted with twists and turns that keep your attention. Gold set the hook early and weaves a story that keeps you turning pages until late in the night. The context is fresh with lots of action and intrigue. The author does an excellent job of developing her characters, each with distinct personalities that are consistent in each book. Only marketing and name recognition stand in the way of this author's works on the NYT best seller list.

really exceptional. brilliant a must read for everyone. a very cleverly masterminded crime Spiked is truly well written book with an incredibly story line. It is full of suspense and action; definitely keeping the reader on her/his toes! I know for me personally, I could not put the book down. I have recommended it to as many friends as I know, and I will continue to do so. This novel is a great book if you like to read suspense, and enjoy a book that you cannot predict.
