On a remote highway in Arizona women are disappearing at truck stops. Journalist Johnny Sullivan travels to the area to investigate. He encounters hitchhiker Patty, who is being hunted by violent trucker Red. Patty tells Johnny of the local myth of the maniac trucker. Johnny also meets Valentino de La Cruz, a mysterious Mexican who is looking for his missing sister. Valentino is having an affair with Natasha, the wife of recently murdered businessman, Theodore Mills, whose wealth funds the corrupt police force in the area. The local highway patrol is run by sexually sadistic Sam Roche and Franklin Norman and they want to put an end to Johnny's snooping. Marshall Simmons knows a lot about the goings on in the area, and has a young woman captive in a house. He is reprogramming her identity. Meanwhile Johnny discovers that years previously serial killer Donald Lake disappeared in the area while in transit between prisons. And it seems he had police help. But what is being done to the women? And who is running the criminal organization that controls the area? Savage Highways is about lawlessness and the hunt for justice in a no-man land. Pedal to the floor all the way, the narrative speeds towards its stunning and unforeseeable conclusion.

Gosh, I love a good horror/mystery book and this is true to it's name - it's a savage one! "Savage Highway" is a delightfully brutal tale about a part of America that I would never want to visit. Women are going missing, a murderer is on the loose, a maniac trucker prowls the highways and a further disturbing twist I will not spoil. I found the characters to be wonderfully diverse and the story to be quite intriguing. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a juicy mystery along with some fantastic horror, but not to anyone who is sensitive to sexual violence. There is a fairly large amount of sexual violence in this book. Scott Cummings does a fantastic job of narration, so good in fact that I will seek out other books he's narrated! I didn't want this one to end. 10/10
