In the electrifying tradition of Dean Koontz and Gillian Flynn comes the first riveting psychological thriller from the New York Times and USA Today best-selling author!
It's high summer in the Mojave Desert, and Kristine Rush and her fiancé, Daniel, are en route from Las Vegas to Lake Arrowhead, California, for the July Fourth holiday weekend. But when Daniel is abducted from a desolate rest stop, Kristine is forced to choose: return home unharmed but never to see her fiancé again or plunge forward into the searing desert to find him...where a killer lies in wait. One road. One woman. One killer.
Sprinting against the clock, and uncertain if danger lies ahead or behind, Kristine must blaze an epic path through the gaudy flash of roadside casinos, abandoned highway stops, and a landscape rife with horrors never before imagined. Desperate to save her doomed husband-to-be, Kristine must summon long forgotten resources if she's to go head to head against this unpredictable killer. And she'd better hurry. Because she only has 24 hours...to make one hell of a trip.

I only purchased this book because Kate Rudd is one of my favorite narrators This book was sick. I hated it. No good substance I was really disturbed by the animal abuse. I will never purchase another book by this author
This book hits the ground running and doesn't slow down till the end. The time flew by while listening to it. I don't want to say much about the plot because I don't want to spoil it for you, but I was reminded a little of Dean Koontz's "Intensity" because of the way the story constantly keeps you on the edge of your seat. You will be surprised, shocked, and breathless at this roller coaster ride of a story. I had people tell me how much they loved "Gone Girl," how it was a page turner, etc. "Swerve" blows "Gone Girl" out of the water. Do yourself a favor and don't miss this one.
Married "mom" of 3 crazy dogs and 1 cat! I developed a love for reading just after college & only recently for audio. Loving it so far!
This book was just ok.... I found myself zoning out (not in a good way), and coming back to the book wondering why it wasn't over yet. I seemed to just drag on & on!!! That said, maybe reading this may have been better - or listening to a different narrator! Kate Rudd narrated a few other books I listened too and I should have known better! Her enunciation and overly dramatic whine is like nails on a chalk board!!! Her fake cry/talking is the WORST!!! If the sorry sounds intriguing.... Just read it.
