Description

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.

.

‘I loved this book. dark and at times almost comical, a great blend of crime thriller and the darkest imaginable domestic noir. Actually like domestic noir on LSD’ Sarah Pinborough

.

‘Totally addictive. Like Fight Club, only darker’ S.J. Watson

.

‘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

.

‘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

.

‘Black-hearted noir. Disturbing and brilliant’ Tom Wood

.

‘Quirky, cool and dark as sin, Good Samaritans will rock your reading world’ Liz Loves Books

.

Good Samaritans is sexy, dark, explicit and graphic in places, so certainly not for the fainthearted. It’s twisty and twisted too. Is this love story? Oh yes, but not necessarily in the way you think. It’s certainly a tale of lust, obsession, control and desperation. The book kept me guessing and certainly kept me engrossed, with many ‘laugh out loud’ moments and pages read with a gasp … I’ll never look at bottles of bleach in quite the same way again’ Off-the-Shelf Books

.

Good Samaritans was quite different to anything I’ve read before – it had the thrilling plot I look for as well as a sexy and daring pulse throughout. If you’re looking for something that speeds the heart rate up in more ways than one, I highly recommend Will’s new novel! Once upon a Book

.

‘As the story unfolded and events started to shape in a way I was not expecting, I began to wonder. I wondered and wondered and wondered … and was left gobsmacked!!! Good Samaritans is a rodeo drive in the city in a family car. It looks safe and harmless on the outside. Scrape the surface and discover one of the most intense and haunting novels’ Chocolate ‘N’ Waffles

‘Well, throw in roughly 6 bottles of bleach, a craved wife Maeve, and two other bodies and you have yourself one hell of a plot. With twists and turns to throw you off course, this will capture your mind, heart, and soul. After all she was ‘dirty’ and ‘used’. The perfect set up for a crime is about to begin. You better get ready. It’s about to go down! Who will be next? Who is the next target? Someone please go get me my phonebook, I have a few phone calls to make’ Donna Hines

‘As the story unfolded and events started to shape in a way I was not expecting, I began to wonder. Haha. I wondered and wondered and wondered … and was left gobsmacked!!! Someone is holding the cards, except you have no idea who! To be honest, you will have ideas, you will think you know, and let me laugh right now, you will be wrong, oh you will. And you will be as pleased as I was to have been played so well. Good Samaritans is a rodeo drive in the city in a family car. It looks safe and harmless on the outside.

‘He’s best known for the January David series, which ended in 2013. Now Will Carver is back with a standalone that takes good deeds to a whole new level. Sleep and Seth Beauman don’t get along, so he stays up late, calling random strangers and hoping to make a connection while his wife sleeps upstairs. Then one night he gets a crossed line. Hadley Serf is suicidal and thinks she is talking to the Samaritans. It’s the start of a strange relationship that can only end in tears… Out 15 September.’ Good Samaritans is recommended by Crime Fiction Lover
