About PJ Skinner

The author has spent 30 years working as an exploration geologist managing remote sites and doing due diligence of projects in more than thirty countries. During this time she has been collecting tall tales and real-life experiences which inspired her to write the Sam Harris Series chronicling the adventures of a female geologist as a pioneer in a hitherto exclusively male world. PJ has worked in various countries in South America and Africa in remote, strange and often dangerous places and loved every minute of it despite encountering her fair share of misogyny and other perils. She is now writing these fact-based adventure books from the relative safety of London but still travels all over the world collecting data for her writing.

The Sam Harris Series follows the misadventures of a female geologist in the 1980s and 1990s as she struggles with new cultures and old prejudices. Book 5 will be published summer 2019.

The author is also working on two other new books, one of which, Rebel Green, is based on her childhood in Ireland.

About the Series: Sam Harris
The Sam Harris Series follows the career of an unwilling heroine, whose bravery and resourcefulness are needed to navigate a series of adventures set in remote sites in Africa and South America. Based on the real-life adventures of the author, the settings and characters are given an authenticity that will connect with readers who enjoy adventure fiction and mysteries set in remote settings with realistic scenarios. Set in the late 1980’s themes such as women working in formerly male domains, and what constitutes a normal existence, are examined and developed in the context of Sam’s constant ability to find herself in the middle of an adventure or mystery. Sam’s home life provides a contrast to her adventures and feeds her need to escape. Her attachment to an unsuitable boyfriend is the thread running through her romantic life, and her attempts to break free of it provide another side to her character

Review by: Ken Stark on April 6, 2018 :
I love a strong female lead, so it was a pleasure to meet the star of PJ Skinner's Sam Harris series. Sam is smart and capable and loyal to a fault, but she is also emotional and she makes mistakes and she is subject to weaknesses of the heart, and it is all of the above that makes her such a great lead.
In Hitler's Finger, the year is 1988 and Sam is on a chase through the back roads of South America to stop a group of escaped Nazi war criminals from carrying out their nefarious plot. It is a fun and exciting read, and truth be told, I didn't even know that it was the second book in the series, but no matter. Each book in the series stands on it's own, and such is PJ Skinner's writing skills that we get to know the diverse cast of characters well without a tedious overabundance of back story. And it is the characters in Hitler's Finger that really bring the story to life. Yes, Sam is awesome, but all of the secondary characters are interesting in their own way. Even the Nazis are fleshed out as real flesh-and-bones people. It would have been easy enough to portray a group of escaped Nazis hiding in the jungle as cookie-cutter bad guys, but life is rarely so black and white, and Skinner had at least a few of them straddling that grey area perfectly.
I enjoyed this book very much, and for me, the best part is knowing that there are two more Sam Harris books out there just waiting for me to read. Five big stars for Sam Harris, and a big thumbs up for Hitler's Finger!
