When Sam Jones wakes up handcuffed in a cellar and with a terrible headache, she naturally assumes she is suffering the aftermath of a great night out. But, as her memory returns, she recalls being kidnapped. Is she the kidnappers' real target or is it all a case of mistaken identity?

Action-packed, racy as ever, "Chained!" should satisfy even the most demanding fans of Sam Jones exploits.Review:
When tough-minded sculptor Sam Jones wakes up handcuffed and chained in a cellar full of damp and cockroaches, she spends the hours between Nescafé and vegemite sandwiches trying to work out how she has got here. Chained! is another outing for Henderson's incident-prone heroine, one in which she is as far from the conventional woman-in-peril as it is possible to be without being superhuman. It all starts when she gets a job as technical consultant on a television thriller starring her rather camp boyfriend Hugo, and finds herself caught up in the affairs of actress Sarah, for whom she is performing the welding bits of Sarah's role. Sarah has robust views, vigorously expressed, about the wearing of fur, and has become the target of Animal Rights Groups' hate mail and malicious practical jokes on set--it seems obvious to Sam that she has been mistaken for Sarah. Freed, she helps the police, but also puts her own investigation into play. As always, Henderson is as funny about subcultural milieux--actors, animal-rights people--as she is about her foul-mouthed, mildly predatory heroine; this is an excellent comedy thriller which is both exciting and entertaining. -- Roz Kaveney
