Timothy Carrier, having a beer after work at his friend’s tavern, enjoys drawing eccentric customers into amusing conversations. But the jittery man who sits next to him tonight has mistaken Tim for someone very different and passes to him a manila envelope full of cash.

The stranger walks out, leaving a photo of the pretty woman marked for death, and her address. But things are about to get worse. In minutes another stranger sits next to Tim. This one is a cold-blooded killer who believes Tim is the man who has hired him.

Thinking fast, Tim says, “I’ve had a change of heart. You get ten thousand—for doing nothing. Call it a no-kill fee.” He keeps the photo and gives the money to the hired killer. And when Tim secretly follows the man out of the tavern, he gets a further shock: the hired killer is a cop.

Suddenly, Tim Carrier, an ordinary guy, is at the center of a mystery of extraordinary proportions, the one man who can save an innocent life and stop a killer far more powerful than any cop, and as relentless as evil incarnate. But first Tim must discover within himself the capacity for selflessness, endurance, and courage that can turn even an ordinary man into a hero, inner resources that will transform his idea of who he is and what it takes to be The Good Guy.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Angela Seiverling | 2/16/2014

    " The Good Guy was a book that I absolutely loved! I could not put down this book for very long. Normally it was back in my hands and I was flowing through more of the pages. Before I knew it the book was over and I was wanting more. The flow of the book did not go too fast, but enough to not leave you bored during certain parts. The characters in this book were really interesting to me, and I loved seeing how different some characters/people really can be. What someone would do in a situation like the main character Tim was put into. "

    " Didn't care about lack of character development, didn't care about unexplained origins and evolution. Just enjoyed the ride. "
