The setting is San Francisco, 1959.

 A woman on a train is keeping her eye on Sam Slater.  It appears that she knows Sam but he doesn't know her, but he will remember her, and not only for her large red hat.

She reaches out to Sam saying she is getting notes from an anonymous person and they are threatening her. But Amelia has reservations about this woman.  She feels it's trouble brewing.  She's flirting with Sam and  and that puts Amelia on high alert. How does this woman know Sam so well?  What is really up?  Well, this woman has a secret that she's hiding.  What could it be?

 Did it have something to do with Room 505 in a rich, high scale hotel?  What happened there?   But what happens when she believes her secrets are about to come out?  Someone knows something and the woman's secret life is about to explode.

Are Sam and Amelia in danger?  Is there murder or maybe another murder in the works? I loved the intrigue of Room 505.  What's going on? The author gives you a mystery that has questions from page to page.  You become the investigator. You are the one to get the answers to t he questions of what happened in Room 505.  The book is a get away for those of you who love Sam Slater and all the escapades that go with it.  If you like figuring out mysteries with dark hidden secrets, filled with danger and the unknown, then pick up this 7th book in the Sam Slater Series.  You won't regret it, except you will want more of Sam Slater.

I received a copy of this book  and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
