Happy hump day everybody!
Thrilled to bring you my review for this dark disturbing book, but a little bummed that it is not available in the US? Maybe soon? A huge thank you too Anne Cater for my invitation to the blog tour, and to Will Carver for his intriguing story🙃
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.
this is a dark, disturbing, delicious story that will leave you thinking, “WTH did I just read???”
This book will suck you in, turn you on your head, spin you all around, and then spit you out… leaving you wordless, breathless, a little less innocent, and in need of a shower…. there is a reason for those six bottles of bleach! This book is like no other you have red before, I can promise you that! It is bold, it is edgy, it is graphic… this thriller had more graphic sex then most romances, there is no fading to black! That also goes for the violence and killings…. Will Carver gives you a front row seat to all the gory details and doesn’t hold any punches! This book is not for the faint of heart, if it were a movie it would be rated X, but what a wonderful movie it would make!
Multiple points of view, multiple flawed characters, multiple twists and turns, multiple “oh no they didn’t!” moments…. this is a book best gone into without knowing much… I don’t want to go into the characters at all, I don’t want to spoil anything, just know that they are all completely screwed up! This story is dark, the characters are creepy, you won’t want to turn the page because you aren’t sure if you can handle what’s coming next, but you have to because the compulsion is too strong….
You’ll spend this entire book in the mind of crazy! Short chapters that will leave you jumping from one nut job to another, but never quite getting enough of the madness…. that is until the very end… the end will leave you gasping and shaking your head…. I could tell you I never saw that ending coming, but I never saw the last 60% of this book coming, so that would be an understatement! This is the kind of book that makes you question your self because you really loved it and yet it was JUST. SO. WRONG.
Absolutely recommend if you love a twistyier darker more graphic thriller that is completely original and edgy!
