By Jonathan Lynn

Samaritans Medical Center, Washington DC, can’t seem to look after itself and its increasingly desperate doctors, let alone its patients.

The chairman of the board, billionaire arms dealer and part-time philanthropist David Soper, decides that it’s time to kill or cure.

Business School alumnus and Las Vegas hotel genius Max Green is the perfect man for the job. A man of vision. A man with a mission. A man who knows that wealth-care is smarter than healthcare.

He’s going to make Samaritans great again.

Andrew Sharp, star cardio-thoracic surgeon, turns his back on the NHS and buys in to this brave new world of Porsches and payola. But when his American Dream turns into a living nightmare, Andrew discovers that even the new-found love of his assistant, Cathy, may not be enough to save him…

Samaritans is the new novel from the co-creator and writer of Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister.


Jonathan Lynn is the multi-award winning author of The Complete Yes Minister and The Complete Yes, Prime Minister, which were drawn from the phenomenally successful BBC series which he created and wrote with Antony Jay, and which sold more than a million copies in hardback. They have been translated into numerous languages and are still in print nearly 30 years later. Other writing: a novel Mayday, the play The Patriotic Traitor and a memoir Comedy Rules. His films as director include Clue, Nuns on the Run (both of which he wrote), My Cousin Vinny, The Distinguished Gentleman and The Whole Nine Yards. Numerous writing awards include a BAFTA and a Special Award from the Campaign For Freedom of Information.
