A very suspenseful book at times and it keeps you going. This book had a little more interest in me since I grew up in the Mojave desert and would drive on back roads all the time, so I would think of some of those when I was reading. A very good story. Will not tell you how it ends. I got this book from Netgalley. I gave it 5 stars. Follow us atwww.1rad-readerreviews.com
