Remember that car that passed you near midnight on Route 66, doing 105 with its lights off? You wondered where it was going so quickly on that dark, dusty stretch of road, motor roaring, the driver glancing out the window as he blew by.
You just saw the founder of the Suicide Motor Club. Be grateful his brake lights never flashed. Be grateful his car was already full.
They roam America, littering the highways with smashed cars and bled-out bodies, a gruesome reflection of the unsettled '60s. But to anyone unlucky enough to meet them in the lonely hours of the night, they're just a blurry memory. That is, to all but one....
Two years ago, they left a witness in the mangled wreck of her family car, her husband dead, her son taken. She remembers their awful faces, despite their tricks and glamours. And she's coming for them - her thirst for vengeance even more powerful than their hunger for blood. On the deserted highways of America, the hunters are about to become the hunted....

"Impossible to put down." (Suspense Magazine)
Born in the back of a travelin' show, Mama used to dance for the money they'd throw.
The action scenes in this book are beyond compare. I've really enjoyed hearing the author read his last two works.
Vampires are everywhere in fiction now. It's refreshing to find vampires who are EVIL. And the idea of them driving muscle cars and terrorizing motorists? Awesome.
The Lesser Dead (also by Christopher Buehlman). Nightflyer by Stephen King. Really, its a unique idea.
Rarely do authors read their own work as well as Mr. Buehlman. His accent for Luther was perfect. He did a great job.
Yes! Life got in the way and it took me two days.
Do yourself a favor and get this title! Along with my two other favorites of his, The Lesser Dead (sooo good) and Between two Fires (one of my all time best books -- it'll make you think!)
Author/ Narrators make the best narrators, and Buehlman is one of the best there is!
