The Good Samaritan Hong Kong Book Launch 新書發布會 —《The Good Samaritan》
Former SCMP journalist CJ Parsons joins us from London for the Hong Kong launch of her first novel, a gripping and heart-stopping emotional thriller that’s receiving rave reviews from fans of the genre. When her five-year-old daughter disappears from the park, Carrie’s world shatters and she blames herself. What if her inability to read facial expressions has put her child in danger? When a stranger brings Sofia home Carrie should be relieved, but are those who have offered their help really the good Samaritans they seem… or has Carrie missed the warning signs? CJ discusses plotting suspense and drawing inspiration from her crime reporting experience with Kate Whitehead, author of true crime books Hong Kong Murders and After Suzie: Sex in South China. In ENGLISH, and available online 48 hours later with CHINESE subtitles.
