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.

    Story
    "C,J. Box never disappoints."

    Box builds the characters so vividly they are visible. Some ties to the first book in the series but not so much that it would ruin the story if listened to out of order.

    "Excellent"

    Excellent! Does justice to the serial murder genre that is so fascinating, creepy while leaving out gratuitous violence . With a great quick developing plot and suspense

    "So big a disappointment that I quit!"

    Obviously, the author has a right to write what he wants. But if I had read and taken to heart the negative reviews, I wouldn't have wasted my time. As it was, I "only" wasted 5 hours, because I quit so I wouldn't waste an additional 5 hours! Don't bother reading this book if you like something redeeming in your reads.

    "Good writing - BAD BAD BAD story line"

    I have seen enough on the news to know that this kind of thing happens BUT I do not want to read about it for entertainment. I should have paid heed to another reviewer who wrote "I have read every book C.J. (Box) 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..."

    Once I discovered audio books I've never gone back! I listen everyday while I garden, cook, work around the house, and at bed time.

    "hard to listen to"
    What disappointed you about The Highway?

    I almost didn't finish this book, because i anticipated a horrible end for the girls. The villians were repulsive creatures. I don't really want to read another like this.


    Has The Highway turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes, it was painful anticipating the horror. I think this is a horror book/


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the rescue


    What character would you cut from The Highway?

    The villians, especially the crooked cop.

    Story
    "Way to dark...almost stopped reading/listening."
    Would you try another book from C.J. Box and/or Holter Graham?

    It appears Box was tinkering with some dark elements and decided to move on. This is a skip.


    Has The Highway turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No the Pickett novels are excellent!


    What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

    Excellent narrator.


    What character would you cut from The Highway?

    The main villain and Box's decent into madness with the character.

    Story
    "Wish I'd stopped with "Back of Beyond""

    I loved all of the books in the Joe Pickett series and was really excited about being introduced to Cody Hoyt. "Back of Beyond" was great so I started reading "The Highway" immediately afterwards. I wish I hadn't.

    While the first half of the book showed the same CJ Box promise, the second half of the book seemed to have been written by someone else. Cassie was a weak character and I simply could not buy how she solved the case. With the end of the story leaving us hanging about the 3rd bad guy, I definitely will not listen to a sequel. Didn't like Cassie from the beginning.

    I've pre-ordered the next Joe Pickett book and am looking forward to that but I'm now a little hesitent about other Box books.
