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.
`There is a vivid - almost cinematic - quality to the writing. It is intense and makes for uncomfortable yet compulsive reading' News of the World
`I was blown away by this gripping book. I sense Carver will break out of genre boundaries and become a literary voice to be reckoned with' Sarah Pinborough
