Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of Blue Heaven and Back of Beyond, C.J. Box, comes a gripping new thriller.
When teenagers Danielle and Gracie Sullivan take a clandestine car trip to visit their friend in Montana, little do they know it's the last time anyone will ever hear from them again. The girls and their car simply vanish.
Cody Hoyt, who's just lost his job and has fallen off the wagon after a long stretch of sobriety, is in no condition to investigate. But his son Justin, who the girls were going to visit, and his former partner, Cassie Dewell, convince him to drive south to their last known location. As Cody makes his way to the remote stretch of Montana highway where the girls went missing, Cassie discovers that there have been scores of similar disappearances in the state. There's a serial killer out there roaming the highways, and Cody and Cassie must find him before he takes more lives.

No, No, No!!!!

The first Cody Hoyt book was terrific, and I was looking forward to following him through a new story, but this was a huge letdown. The primary reason is one I can't share because it would ruin it for anyone who still wants to read the book, but it was a major upset and just plain disappointing ... tell me if you don't agree. Secondary reasons are that the "bad guy" was (a) just too creepy and unpleasant and (b) got way too much focus; the backup detective was very uninteresting and had the depth of a mud puddle; the back story about Hoyt's problems with his superiors was piecemeal and had little heft. And last but far from least the ending was no ending at all, and was a complete downer. Only real plus was the narrator who was pretty good, despite the storyline. This one got a big thumb's down from me.

The dark side

Would you try another book from C.J. Box and/or Holter Graham?

I have read every book C.J. has written and am a big fan. The Highway seemed to take a turn to the dark side and I did not like it, very disturbing and obviously will have a sequel.


If you’ve listened to books by C.J. Box before, how does this one compare?

Not as good, too dark.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
