Publisher's Summary

After a youth marked by the death of his parents and a childhood spent with his shaman grandfather on the Cattaraugus Indian Reservation, Kevin "Hatch" Easter has found a job he believes in - tracker for the CIA - and a wife, Karen, he cherishes. But his life is shattered on a hot August night in New York City when a mob collection gone wrong leaves three people dead, Karen Easter among them.
Just a few days later, police find the gunman dead, the murder weapon on him, and the criminal case is all but closed. Except someone doesn't buy it. Someone thinks the guilty parties are still out there. And that someone wants revenge.
Now, a highly professional hunter stalks the streets of New York City, taking out anyone who may have had a hand in the murders. Is Kevin Easter the hunter? And if he is, is it the CIA's job to save him - or to kill him?
The Samaritan is a chilling, pulse-pounding novel - a powerful story of love, death, and the terrible repercussions of both.

"Hatch" Easter!!Cute! Actually quite a good read!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I really liked Kevin Easter but I would have to say I think my favorite character is "the Hunter". He has a story and a reason for doing what he is doing. No spoilers here you just have to listen yourself.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, when the three innocent people became collateral damage, one of them being Karen Easter. That scene just seemed to much like real headline news.


Any additional comments?

I was a little skeptical about buying this book as the first reviews I had read when it first came out were not very positive. However, I did keep the book in my wish list and every time I had nothing to read/listen to I would revisit this one. So, I finally bought it and so glad I did. Please ignore any negative feedback about the book. It is light, easy to listen to, coherent and well told. All around a pretty good book and I hope the beginning of a new series. Either way, I will look forward to more from this author. I recommend this book. If you find this review helpful please indicate so. I base many of my own purchases on reviews and always let reviewers know I appreciate their opinion.

Great twists and turns and a fabulous narrator!

Would you listen to The Samaritan again? Why?

I would totally listen to The Samaritan again. It was engaging and exciting, and I did not figure out "who-done-it" until it was revealed (which I usually do). However... I'm going to look for another Bill Lord book to listen to instead!


What about Bill Lord’s performance did you like?

Bill Lord was magnificent!! He brings each character to life... to an extent that I can picture each one of them in my head. I like to listen while i'm at the gym, and not once did I think about my aching muscles while listening. Bill has such a pleasant tone to his voice that I thoroughly enjoyed every minute.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Um... well, it is an 11 hour book, so no.


Any additional comments?

Great story, fantastic narrator! I tried another book after this one and couldn't even make it past the 3rd chapter. Guess I need another Bill Lord book. :)
