The Samaritan - US hardcover signed by the author

Author signed edition - if you would like the book personalised, please request in the notes at checkout


When the mutilated body of a young woman is discovered, LAPD Detective Jessica Allen knows she's seen this MO before.

A sadistic serial killer has been operating undetected for a decade, preying on lone female drivers who have broken down. The press dub the killer 'the Samaritan', but with no leads, the police investigation quickly grinds to a halt.

That's when Carter Blake shows up to volunteer his services. He's a skilled manhunter who shares some uncomfortable similarities to the man Allen and her team are tracking. As the slaughter intensifies, Blake must find a way to stop it . . . even if it means bringing his own past crashing down on top of him.

From the author of THE KILLING SEASON comes the thrilling new Carter Blake novel.

“Fans of Jeffery Deaver―that other thrill-master who can't resist piling on the climactic twists even as the lights are coming up and you're looking for your umbrella―should be enthralled.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“British author Cross makes a spectacular U.S. debut with this harrowing thriller. The gripping, intense pace and the intriguing characters will keep readers on the edge of their seats. Hope for a sequel!” (Library Journal (starred review))
