James Rollins

New York Times bestselling author of THE EYE OF GOD and BLOOD LINE.

“Grabs you on the first page and holds you in its relentless grip to its nail-biter of an ending.  Intense, politically savvy, and frighteningly real, here is a debut novel that both thrills and disturbs.”

Andrew Gross

New York Times bestselling author and co-author of six #1 thrillers with James Patterson.

“As intense as a killer’s finger resting on the trigger, Steve Besecker’s THE SAMARITAN rocks with non-stop action, believable scenarios, and deftly drawn characters that seem to jump off the page.”

Gregg Hurwitz

New York Times bestselling author of THEY’RE WATCHING and YOU’RE NEXT.

“A well-plotted, muscular debut with wall-to-wall action, THE SAMARITAN is a thrill-ride into the dark world of vigilante violence. Native American Kevin “Hatch” Easter is a different kind of hero—highly-trained, deadly, and driven by a vengeance of his own.  I have no doubt we’ll be hearing from author Steve Besecker for years to come.”

Brian Haig

New York Times bestselling author THE CAPITOL GAME.

“A real treat to read.  Steve Besecker has written a great thriller; intelligent, twisty, a wonderful mix between character and action, just an all-around absorbing book you can’t put down.  Steve has a gift.”

Brad Park,

Shamus and Nero Award-winning author of EYES OF THE INNOCENT.

“THE SAMARITAN is a tautly plotted, exhaustively researched thrill ride that keeps the action coming and the pages turning.  Stephen Besecker has tracked down a great story in his thriller debut.”

Andy Harp,


“Stephen Besecker’s THE SAMARITAN is an enthralling, ambitious, multi-layered thriller that will keep you on edge until the very last act.  Don’t think you know the answer to the test!”
