Publisher's Summary

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....

wonderfully sinister

The action scenes in this book are beyond compare. I've really enjoyed hearing the author read his last two works.

Another Christopher Buehlman Classic!

Christopher Buehlman does an odd thing with his "horror" books, he makes it more about the story then the scares or the gruesome imagery. That is why his books are in a class above all others in the genre. And fans of his past works should keep an ear open for some amazing Easter eggs to a few of his other books. Suicide Motor Club is fantastic, and like all of Buehlman's other work the characters, setting, and dialogue are superb. He truly makes you feel like you are driving along these old country highways being tormented by the SMC!

Vivid, complex and emotionally incendiary.

I'm only sad that, at the moment, there are no more Buehlman double downs. The way that he delivers his own prose is next level.

This one joins a small group of books that are so richly atmospheric I found myself making excuses to drive at night and on lonely roads just so I could grab another chapter. Now I can get some rest 🤪

Thank you.

Christopher Buehlman is a GENIUS

I can’t say enough about this book! Christopher Buehlman is not only a talented author, but an incredibly talented voice actor! I didn’t think I would enjoy this book based on the summary, but I had loved his narration in his book The Lesser Dead so much that I decided to gamble a credit on this one. IT DOES NOT DISAPPOINT. He has to be one of the most original authors I’ve ever read. He reimagines genres that have been done to death and manages to give them new life. Add to that his spot on performance of the book (because who better to narrate a book than the author himself?!) and you’ve got a killer combo.

DON’T HESITATE. START THIS BOOK NOW!!!

5 stars isn't enough

Best book I've read in a long time. If I could give 6 stars, I would.

Loved it

I want a sequel for this amazing novel! There's so much left to be explored and revealed. The Delores side story was a true surprise. It wasn't the most important part of the story but gave me a good chuckle.

Amazing story and equally amazing author/narrator

Christopher Buehlman has quickly become one of my favorite writers. His storytelling skills are just awesome and this book goes above and beyond. I found myself impatient to wait until the following day to find out what happens next and forcing myself to pause for work and sleep. Great book! I 100% recommend.

Encasing

Soon as the story started I found myself sitting and listening fully immersed, so much so I am now a days worth behind on work.
