The Good Samaritan Reviews
Lemme start this review off with THE BIGGEST TRIGGER WARNING EVER ⚠ ⚠⚠⚠⚠⚠⚠⚠⚠
If you or a loved one has considered or completed suicide, DO NOT read this book. Really. Like, not even the first chapter. It’s not a light TW, this is a full-throated TW. Just don’t.
That being said, if suicide is not a trigger for you... this book is horrifyingly good. How shall I describe it?
At the very beginning, It’s like a thriller from the POV of the bad guy. Which is AWESOME.
And then it turns into a tale of rev ...more
Wow, what a chilling thriller! This book was very suspenseful and had me on the edge of my seat. I have to admit it was a tad disturbing since I have had to use the suicide crisis line in my past but it was still a highly enjoyable book. This book made me think and made the hairs on the back of my neck stick straight up! Definitely recommend this psychological thriller!
this book was beyond infuriating - im still angry just thinking about it. i had thought about putting this down multiple times but, for some reason, i just had to know what happened. silly me. there was a slight twist that i appreciated, but goodness me, i could not stand the main character.
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 “Marr ...more

But when Laura speaks to clients, her intentions, no matter how justified she believes them to be, are quite sinister. She has successfully assisted many individuals, via phone, in ending their own lives.
But when Laura's path crosses with that of Ryan, things start to get a little rocky for her. Because you see, Ryan thought he had everything in life ahead of him... he and his w ...more
"I will save them from themselves. That is what I am: a saviour of lost souls."
Some of the best killers are the master manipulators - the ones who use others to do their own bidding. They masterfully control the situations around them and believe the lies they tell. While some may feel that they are doing good in the world, they really are only doing what is best for their own agenda. They are dangerous, selfish, intelligent and usually stay under the radar. Take a look around you - there's prob ...more
Author John Marrs tied my stomach into knots with a sordid tale of deception from those we instill a great deal of trust. The storyline had several well-placed characters but trickled down for the most part to two. They were well-drawn. The heading of the chapters were a time-saver by identifying which character was speaking. No time was lost trying to figure it out. Needless fillers or slow moving scenes never entered the narrative. As the plot progressed so did the action and intensity.

4.5 stars! The Good Samaritan is easily one of the darkest and most disturbing books I've read in a long time. After being unable to put down John Marrs's uniquely suspenseful The One, I knew I wanted more of his writing in my life. The Good Samaritan is a vastly different novel and its subject matter isn't for everyone, but I found myself just as unable to put down this story, fascinated by the train wreck of two people absolutely determined to destroy one another.
The first half of the novel ta ...more
