Starred Review for The Highway

This book does for highways what Psycho did for showers.

C.J. Box' latest thriller is a standalone throat-gripper that takes place on the open road. 

When teenagers Danielle and Gracie take a road 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 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.

Library Journal gave THE HIGHWAY a starred review and included it in their article "A Suspenseful Summer: Ten Thrillers for the Hot Months Ahead." In their review they said, "Box’s stand-alone weaves together subplots into a nonstop, action-filled race against time. Rolling down the superhighway of suspense, this thriller will leave readers breathless."

Publishers Weekly said, "Filled with believable characters and hard, realistic dialogue, Edgar-winner Box’s perfectly paced novel offers a suspenseful story laced with more than a few shockingly unexpected plot twists."
