This is the 4th book I’ve read by John Marrs and those eagle eyed readers will notice that it’s the 3rd book I have a cameo part in and a lovely mention in the acknowledgements. I was asked to read this book months ago before the editing and proof readers had been through it, but I declined because if I’m honest I love John’s stories so much I wanted to wait for the final version and enjoy it like any other reader would.

Boy am I glad I waited. The Good Samaritan has all the trademarks of a “Marrs Novel”, disturbed psychopaths, intricately woven plotlines, clever character development and twists by the bucket load.

It takes a talented author to bring such damaged characters to life and then to get the reader to feel empathy towards them and this is something John Marrs has a knack for. My sympathy and emotions for the two main characters were alternating back and forth so much I actually felt giddy.

In my opinion this is another superb 5 star book written by a truly talented author who I also have the honour of calling my friend.
