Product description


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

"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

"If you're looking for a genuinely creepy thriller, checkout Good Samaritans . . . completely enthralled." --Margaret B Madden

"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

"Must Read!" --Daily Express

"Oh My God, Good Samaritans is amazing. I'm a little in love with your writing Will Carver." --Helen FitzGerald, author, The Cry

"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

"So dark, so cool." --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." --Telegraph

About the Author

Will Carver is the international bestselling author of the January David series (Arrow). He spent his early years in Germany, but returned to the UK at age 11, when his sporting career took off. He turned down a professional rugby contract to study theatre and television at King Alfred's, Winchester, where he set up a successful theatre company. He currently runs his own fitness and nutrition company, while working on his next thriller. He lives in Reading with his two children.
