After a successful L.A. television career, Ray Mitchell returns to the New Jersey housing project where he grew up, to rethink his life, reconnect with his teenage daughter, and give back to the community. Things are looking up: he's seeing a woman from the old neighborhood and teaching at his high school. But suddenly, he is found savagely beaten. He knows who did it, but won't talk. It's up to Nerese Ammons, a childhood acquaintance and now a police detective, to get Ray to tell what happened. As he slips in and out of consciousness, we enter the years in which he and Nerese encountered each other across lines of money, class, and race, the same lines Nerese must reach across now so that Ray will reveal the truth before it's too late.

    " Samaritan was the first Richerd Price novel I read. I did so because Price introduced the re-issued Requiem for a Dream by Hubert Selby, Jr., and being a huge fan of Selby, I had to read someone who became a writer because of Selby, as I had a very similar experience. Anyway, I was not disappointed. Price does not have the pyschological depth of Selby, but he has a clear, distinct voice that has plenty to say. Samartian is gripping pyschological tale of a man done in by his own deeds. Price is poignant in his delivery and authentic in the scenes he creates. "

    " finished this a few months back. not as compelling as some of price's other novels, but the characterizations are especially strong, and they stick with you. "

    " I picked this book up at Goodwill on "half price day" because of its title. I liked it--it made me think about choices and consequences. It had substance and meaning for me. I know Richard Price has a new book now (Lush Life) and I bought it but haven't read it yet. "

    " Not bad. Plot moved along well, although I could have done without the last sevral chapters. Hated the main character--he's a total moron, very irritating. The whole book seemed to be trying to hard to be street-smart. "
