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...

Reviews for Good Samaritans

Beautiful, gripping and disturbing in equal measure, a postcard from the razor's edge of the connected world we live in. --Kevin Wignall Sick . . . in the best possible way. Will Carver delivers a delicious slice of noir that will have you reeling. --Michael J. Malone If you're looking for a genuinely creepy thriller, checkout Good Samaritans . . . completely enthralled. --Margaret B Madden Oh My God, Good Samaritans is amazing. I'm a little in love with your writing Will Carver. --Helen FitzGerald, author, The Cry Must Read! --Daily Express 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. --Guardian 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. --Telegraph 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 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. --Crime Time So dark, so cool. --Heat Magazine
