Book Three in the Sam Smith Mystery Series.
"Christ! Who shot her?"
"What a mess."
"Better call Dr. Warburton."
Bright lights. A sharp, antiseptic smell. Pain. Nausea. Feel so weak. The cat, who'll feed the cat? "Marlowe."
"She's lost a lot of blood."
"Have we lost her?"
I don't want to die!
A jumble of images, my mother, my father, but his face is so vague. "Daddy!" Nothing.
A man scowling, with a needle. "I'm going to put you to sleep. You won't feel a thing. Just count backwards from ten...." "Ten, nine, eight...."
Nightmares, very vivid, all too real. So confused. So weak.
Distant voices. Laughter. A nurse, smiling, reassuring.
Alan, tears in his eyes. "Don't cry, Alan, don't cry...."
Aching all over. Can't move my shoulder or arm. Very tired. More nightmares, too black to dwell on; make them go away....
Sweating. Drowning. I catch my breath, like breathing for the first time. Eyes blink awake. Gasping. Try to rise, but head hurts too much. Fall back on to the pillow. I ache all over, but I'm alive!
I was alive. But with a snowstorm gripping the city and with an unknown assassin closing in, I faced the most dangerous moment of my life and the very real prospect of feeling the big chill.

Definitely one to recommend, Sam Smith keeps you on your toes
Sam of course! Hannah How develops this character with skill and grace.
"Great quick listen!"
This was my first book with this author. I enjoyed it so much that I ordered two more. The book was light and enjoyable. There was a mystery and I was able to solve it. I like it when the reader is given enough information to solve the crime. I hate those novels where some obscure person is the culprit and there is no way that I could have figured it out.
