This smart, sexy financial thriller with a sense of humor is also a

roman à clef, illuminating the financial skullduggery that almost

destroyed the world economy. Never has a financial crisis been

such fun, as The Bad Samaritan puts the thrill back in thriller.

     Blithe, a prostitute, and Cole, a homeless man and convicted

child molester, encounter some really bad people. Scoundrels

become heroes, heroes transmogrify into scoundrels and a bullet

from Blithe’s gun kills a beloved captain of industry. With Blithe

under arrest for a murder she probably didn’t commit, only Cole

can save her. To do so he needs to extricate himself from a scheme

to bring about a total economic collapse. Desperate, he turns to the

most depraved person he knows.
