A New York Times Bestselling AuthorWhen 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 hear from them. The girls ? and their car ? simply vanish. Former police investigator Cody Hoyt has just lost his job and fallen off the wagon. 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.

A creepy story, especially if you are listening to it while driving

Not "grisly" as some below proclaim. I prefer his Pickett novels but this is his second in the "King" vein, and he leaves an obvious opening for at least one more in this series. He kept me engaged and I look forward to his next tale.

At little slow in the middle but pretty good

This is the second book I've read by Box. A disappointing twist part-way through and an unsatisfactory ending.

Has to be the best C. J. Box book I've ever read! With a shocking plot twist partway thru, it was fast-paced, well-written & a complete revelation! I read it in two days, it was THAT good!!

CJ Bix Fans - Don't bother with this one

Not only not CJ's best works, it is at the absolute bottom IMHO

Maybe it's because he is trying to get into the head of a criminal low-life rather than an LEO, or maybe he was rushed to meet a deadline. Either way the pace was horrible, there were WTF moments every couple of pages

The King trys to stay out of WA, OR and CA, yet one anchor of his circuit is Yakima WA?

What mother would let two teen age girls go on an Interstate trip - alone - without insisting that the car had a checkup first?

"She crossed her arms ove her breasts" Where else would she cross them? Behind her back?

and on, and on, and on

This was the first book I read by C.J. Box, and now I am going to go get more . I thought it was a good read, finished it in two days.

Like millions of you I love the Joe Pickett novels by C.J. Box. But "The Highway" is just plain predictable and such claptrap that I have to put a thumbs down for overall review. Why does such a revered writer have to resort to another rendition of "girl kidnapped by sexual predator and has moments to live"? I do not want to read gore, sadism, and sickness of the human condition.

This is beneath the talents of C.J. Box. He Box not had the phenomenal success of the Joe Pickett series and started out with "The Highway" I would tell him to hit the highway and not read another work by him.

Not one of C J Box' best, but you have to admire a writer who takes the risks that he has in this book. Enough said... any more would be a spoiler.

This is a very intense and grisly book. Definitely not for the squemish. The plot is an exact copy of William Kent Krueger;s "Copper River" althought Krueger is no where near as graphic. Just a cautionary word of dvice.
