Summary

An isolated highway in the middle of the desert - the perfect place to hide a secret.

LA-based artist Laurie Simmonds disappeared two months ago, her camper van abandoned on the isolated Twentynine Palms Highway, miles from anything - or anyone. With the police investigation stalled, her parents put all their faith in private investigator Jessica Shaw to find out the truth of what happened. 

Jessica and her partner Matt Connor discover that two other women are missing, their disappearances connected to the same highway. When a link emerges between these women and a group of former college friends, Jessica feels certain they’re closing in on their target. 

But no sooner do they follow this up than Laurie’s parents get spooked and drop the case. Jessica is blindsided but determined not to give up: three women are missing, and many more may be at risk. She can’t turn her back on them. But the more she pulls at the threads of the truth, the closer she comes to danger. Can she find out who’s behind these crimes before they come for her?

Don't you love the oversharers?

No "spoiler alerts" given. Some 5 star reviewers just explain the entire bloody book in detail, believing they're doing the listeners a favor. In fact, they've done the opposite. I reserve 5 stars for works of great imagination and power. Books like this are background noise I listen to while I'm driving or doing domestic chores. I might have found it a bit more interesting if two "helpful" reviewers hadn't told me the condensed version of the book. 🙄

Suspense

As the story progressed, the pieces started coming together. However, the numerous characters and their situations were jumbled in the first half of the book. The use of different people for the voices might have helped. Overall, the story was suspenseful and satisfying in the end.

Good with Potential for Great

Good story but could've been great. The meat of the story didn't happen soon enough. More than half way through is when the interesting details appear. Unfortunately, it was also pretty easy to figure out who the culprit was before it was revealed. I liked the ending.

good multi storyline and timeline character study.

I really enjoyed this audiobook which had multiple characters multiple timelines and multiple storylines that you knew connected and had a Common Thread but just didn't know how. Good strong female lead character who has her faults but is likeable. Agreed with other reviews that totally dislike the female Meritor doing the male voices. They all sound the same.

This book was so well written suspenseful to the very end, I read the first two in the series and they were good, But this one was unbelievably great!
