The Good Samaritan Reviews
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.
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
What a deliciously devious little novel this is. John Marrs has created a wicked villain in Laura. She is absolutely awful but you will love to hate her. I was completely gripped from beginning to end.
Laura works at the End of the Line call center where you're a friendly voice and comforting shoulder to potential suicide victims. Unbeknownst to all around her but this is where she gets her kicks by convincing people that they are not worthy of life and essentially assisting them in t ...more

Wow, such an amazing story! I loved LOVED it! It was my second read by this author but as my previous read by him wasn’t that good, this one compensated it! This book took me out of my comfort zone (pushed me so hard) and let me tell you this one was an uncomfortable read but I’m glad I read it, it was definitely worth it! It was a really good psychological thriller, a page turner one, I couldn’t put it down and I was on the edge of my seat all the time! Well done Mr. Marrs!
I enjoyed “The Good Samaritan” by John Marrs for two reasons. First, I liked that the protagonist is a villain. It’s a nice and surprising deviation from the traditional hero/villain dichotomy. I hated Laura though (in the best way). She is a well developed character, and Marrs made her so despicable she evoked disgust, disdain, and frustration in me while I was reading. Second, the book is more “psychological” and less “thriller.” Some people might be disappointed by this, but I loved it. My he ...more
Laura is a mom, she is a wife, she has a 'picture perfect' life...she also works at End of the Line. End of the Line is a phone center for people that have reached the end of hope. They have no good days (that they can see).
You would think this would make Laura a good woman wouldn't you?
You would be wrong. Because Laura is a batshit crazy woman.
She uses her job at End of the Line to find her special people, the ones that have no will to go on. Then she talks them into killing themselves with he ...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!
Trigger warning: Suicide
"I will save them from themselves. That is what I am: a saviour of lost souls."
If you are looking psychological thriller, something really dark, controversial, well written and uncomfortably captivating, this is definitely the book for you. This will be a book you will NEVER forget. Although I haven't read a John Marrs book before, I really enjoyed his writing and this novel and will be seeking more novels from him in the future.
