Description

Dark, deviant and disturbing domestic noir ... one of the most entrancing, sophisticated and page-turning psychological thrillers of the year

SELECTED AS A BOOK OF THE YEAR BY THE GUARDIAN, TELEGRAPH AND DAILY EXPRESS

`Totally addictive. Like Fight Club, only darker' S.J. Watson

`I loved this book. Dark and at times almost comical, a great blend of crime thriller and the darkest imaginable domestic noir' Sarah Pinborough

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 Samaritans marks the scorching return of one of crime fiction's most exceptional voices.

`So dark, so cool' Lisa Howells, Heat Magazine

`Will Carver's invigoratingly nasty novel ... is a bleak vision of life: not the whole truth of it, thank god, but true enough to impart to the reader the thrill of genuine discomfort, presented with the chilly conviction of Simenon's most unflinching romans dues and just as horribly addictive' Jake Kerridge, The Telegraph

`Carver weaves these strands together for an unsettling but compelling mixture of the banal, the horrific and, at times, the near-comic, wrong-footing the reader at every turn' Laura Wilson, Guardian

`In this frantic read in sheer overdrive, Carver appeals to the worst voyeur in all of us and delivers the goods with a punch and a fiendish sense of pace and dark humour ... my type of noir' Maxim Jakubowski, Crime Time

`Must Read!' Daily Express

`Beautiful, gripping and disturbing in equal measure, a postcard from the razor's edge of the connected world we live in' Kevin Wignall

`Possibly the most interesting and original writer in the crime-fiction genre, and I've loved his books for years. Good Samaritans is his best to date - dark, slick, gripping, and impossible to put down. You'll be sucked in from the first page' Luca Veste

`Oh My God, Good Samaritans is amazing. I'm a little in love with your writing Will Carver' Helen FitzGerald

`Sick ... in the best possible way. Will Carver delivers a delicious slice of noir that will have you reeling' Michael J. Malone

`Good Samaritans is dark, edgy, disturbing, shocking and sexy. It's also highly original and one of the best thrillers of the year. Cancel all plans when you start this book and warn those around you; any interruptions may cause them harm. You need to read this book' Michael Wood

'A twisted, devious thriller' Nick Quantrill

'A dark and addictive novel that felt deliciously sexy to read, like I should read it where no one could see' Louise Beech

`A pitch dark, highly original, thrilling novel. If you're a fan of Fight Club, you'll love this' Tom Wood

`Good Samaritans is a provocative, heady, unique, challenging read and it is absolutely blimmin wonderful!' LoveReading

`It's dark, edgy, disturbing, shocking and sexy. It's also highly original and one of the best thrillers of the year ... electrifying' Crime Squad
