Publisher's Summary

Thrilling crime stories about cars, driving, and the road from the world's best-selling and critically acclaimed writers.
Like fiction, cars take us into a different world: from the tony enclaves of upper-crust society to the lowliest barrio; from muscle-car-driving con men to hardscrabble kids on the road during the Great Depression; from a psychotic traveling salesman to a Mexican drug lord who drives a tricked-out VW Bus. We all share the roads, and our cars link us together.
Including entirely new stories from Michael Connelly, C. J. Box, George Pelecanos, Diana Gabaldon, James Sallis, Ace Atkins, Luis Alberto Urrea, Sara Gran, Ben H. Winters, and Joe Lansdale, The Highway Kind is a street-level look at modern America as seen through one of its national obsessions.
