Wow! Box has written a stand alone book, this is not a Joe Pickett book. So well written it just pulls you right into the story and is very hard to put down for any reason so you just keep reading and reading.
At first I was disappointed that this was not another "Joe Pickett" book! However, this author never disappointed me before so I trekked on! Met a detective named Cody Hoyt and was not sure I was going to like him, but he started to grow on me.
This is the story of two sisters (and other girls before them) going missing near a truck stop along a Minnesota Highway. The anticipation of what the bad guys were going to do next had my heart racing in panic before anything happened! I was almost afraid to turn the next page!! And then.....whoa!!!! something I didn't see coming.................."SHOCKER!!
It had me reading through the night!! If you like a thriller, then this is for you!!!
