First multi-millionaire Jeremy Silverstone is murdered and $250 million dollars are missing. Someone is gunning down people like sheep to the slaughter. Several people are gunned down in a bar. One of the people killed was Karen Easter. She was the wife of Kevin aka Hatch Easter.
John “Jack” Slattery is the director of the CIA. He wants the killer stopped before the body count gets too high. With so many suspects from mob don himself, Anthony DiFilippo to possibility, Kevin Easter, it will be one action-packed ride.
Warning to readers are there is language used in this book. There was a lot of different characters thrown at me all at the same time. It was a little hard to follow along to the story at first. Especially when so many of them were getting killed off in the next chapter. Where you better watch your back as you never know who your friends and enemies are. Of course, your friends could become your enemies. I did feel like the Bronx/Queens/Brooklyn area was the prefect setting for this book. It helped to add to the story. This book reminded me of a mobster movie like Scarface. It had the grittyness, I don’t give a sh*t attitude, and the best part is…you won’t find much romance in this book. Mr. Stephen Besecker shows what he is made of and holds nothing back. This is surprising considering that The Samaritan is his first novel. The Samaritan will have you keeping your friends close and your enemies even closer!
