Frank owns a service station on a little-used highway. His granddaughter, Allie, is sent to stay with him for the summer, but they don’t talk a lot.
Simon is a dreamer and an idealist, in thrall to the romance of the open road and desperately in search of something.
Maggie is the woman who will bring them together, someone whose own personal journey will visit unimaginable terror on them all.
This hits the ground running and doesn’t stop, a real horror story that unfolds with a lot of blood and violence.
It made me think of some of the Australian Outback horror films like Wolf Creek, with two young women’s lives at risk in the middle of nowhere.
I was kindly sent a copy of this book with no obligation to review.
