Teaser Tuesday: Good Samaritans by Will Carver

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Purple Booker. If you want to join in grab your current read, flick to a random page, select two sentences (without spoilers) and share them in a blog post or in the comments of The Purple Booker.

This week my teaser comes from Good Samaritans by Will Carver. I finished this book pretty late last night (part of the reason I’m playing catch up today) and really enjoyed it. Well, when I say enjoyed… It’s a little on the dark and disturbing side and there were a few parts which made for uncomfortable reading but it works.

My Teaser

He didn’t want to be one of those guys who only kill women. He wasn’t a misogynist.

He thought it seemed like the right thing to do.

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.
