The Samaritan

Mason Cross

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 Allan and her team are tracking.

A classic wolf-in-sheep’s clothing story, this; almost a fairy tale for our times. The ironically-named Samaritan is a ruthless killer preying on lone female drivers who have broken down. At first LAPD detectives think they’re up against a new monster on the block. Then they realise the slayings have been going on across America for years – and it seems that only mysterious manhunter Carter Blake can stop them. Utterly gripping.
