Good Samaritans by Will Carver


One crossed wire, three dead bodies and six bottles of bleach

Seth Beauman can’t sleep. He stays up late, calling strangers from his phonebook, hoping to make a connection, while his wife, Maeve, sleeps upstairs. A crossed wire finds a suicidal Hadley Serf on the phone to Seth, thinking she is talking to The Samaritans.

But a seemingly harmless, late-night hobby turns into something more for Seth and for Hadley, and soon their late-night talks are turning into day-time meet-ups. And then this dysfunctional love story turns into something altogether darker, when Seth brings Hadley home…

And someone is watching…

Dark, sexy, dangerous and wildly readable, Good Samaritansmarks the scorching return of one of crime fiction’s most exceptional voices.

MOMO’s REVIEW                   

Oh! Oh! Oh!  WTF did I just read!!

This is an outstandingly fresh and brilliant book unlike any other I have ever read.

It is a darkly erotic, disturbingly twisted and seriously f**ked up book and one I highly recommend you read!

I lost count of the number of times I stopped reading to consider WTF!!!  The short chapters will keep you up reading until the small hours – after all, one more chapter is a lot easier when you can see its only a few paragraphs.

The author has created very deeply flawed characters who all have their own issues and he has intertwined their lives fantastically.

Will Carver completely blew me away and messed with my head in a way that no other author has been able to do. Mr Carver you have a very scary mind!!

Good Samaritans will definitely be on my list of best books of 2019!   I will be looking out for his other books – once I get over this one!

*Whilst I highly recommend this book to most people I would advise that it contains graphic sex scenes and some violence which fit the novel perfectly. I may even go as far as saying these are the best sex scenes I have ever read – not too sure what that says about me!!
