When two sisters set out across a remote stretch of Montana road to visit their friend, little do they know it will be the last time anyone might ever hear from them again. The girls—and their car—simply vanish. Former police investigator Cody Hoyt has just lost his job and has fallen off the wagon after a long stretch of sobriety. Convinced by his son and his former rookie partner, Cassie Dewell, he begins the drive south to the girls' last known location. As Cody makes his way to the lonely stretch of Montana highway where they went missing, Cassie discovers that Gracie and Danielle Sullivan aren't the first girls who have disappeared in this area. This majestic landscape is the hunting ground for a killer whose viciousness is outmatched only by his intelligence. And he might not be working alone. Time is running out for Gracie and Danielle…Can Cassie overcome her doubts and lack of experience and use her innate skill? Can Cody Hoyt battle his own demons and find this killer before another victim vanishes on the highway?

Review

  • Great book

    By Dan Vermilion
    It was a great book, well written and keeping your interest. Still, I missed the game warden, the mountains and the the animals.

    The highway was a pretty good book, it’s the first of a series and I am hoping that the next book is better.

  • Too Typical...

    By TheRealMarvinJR
    This is your typical kidnapping story. Truck driver kidnaps prostitute and gets rescued by cop. There isn't really much more to say about this book. It moves fairly slow and I didn't really feel hooked. If you're going to read C.J. Box, Id say stick with the Joe Pickett series.
  • Riveting another great read

    By A weird sister
    Enjoyed this book! C J Box delivers again
  • Not as good as the Pickett series.

    By NotDef
    The storyline is decent, but the protagonist is not very likable. Too much coincidence. The back-stories about the trucking culture and the oil business in the Bakken add texture, but really a hash of irritating personalities and events. The Pickett series is far better in story and evolution and characters. Another reviewer wondered if it was ghost-written , and it does have that different feel to it, although I suspect it is from the original author. Not his best.
  • Hard to stay interested-no likable characters

    By TonyHoff
    The story and characters in this book make it hard to stay interested. No character is likable and the story drifts around in a jerky manner. I’m giving up less than halfway through because I am not enjoying this read.

    I have read 12 of mr. Box's books and enjoyed them all. I was floored by this nauseating piece of garbage that was more a horror book resembling some of Steven King's. How could a good writer come up with a horror "story" in which not a single character was likable, or could keep the attention or sympathy of the readers? Was this penned by a co-writer? DO NOT waste your money or time on this worthless book!
  • Amazing
