Summary

One passenger. One night. One road trip. One suspected serial killer behind the wheel....

Casey Jordan is being driven across the country by a serial killer. Maybe.

Behind the wheel is Josh Baxter, a stranger Casey met by the college ride-share board, who also has a good reason for leaving university in the middle of term. On the road, they share their stories, carefully avoiding the subject dominating the news - the Campus Killer, who's tied up and stabbed three students in the span of a year, has just struck again.

Travelling the lengthy journey between university and their final destination, Casey begins to notice discrepancies in Josh's story.

As she begins to plan her escape from the man she is becoming certain is the killer, she starts to suspect that Josh knows exactly what she's thinking.

Meaning that she could very well end up as his next victim.

A game of cat and mouse is about to play out. In order to win, Casey must do only one thing...survive the night.

Critic reviews

"Noir at its best! This one-sitting-read of a thriller will grab you in the opening pages and simply not let go until the very (and very shocking) end. Author Sager is a master of creating both psychological suspense and richly drawn characters, both good, bad and somewhere in the middle. Bravo!" (Jeffery Deaver, author of The Final Twist)

"Riley Sager's premise is bone-chilling - what if you caught a ride from a guy who could be a serial killer? - and his writing is propulsive and gripping. Woven throughout is a clever nod to classic movies, which adds to the intricate architecture of this absolutely terrific book." (Sarah Pekkanen, number one New York Times best-selling coauthor of You Are Not Alone)

Not the best Riley Sager

I am a Riley Sager fan, but this is not his best book. Starts promising, but gets unbelieveable and over complicated. Still enjoyable at some points and there are a few interesting thoughts, but others are cliche. My favourites are still “Lock every door” and “Home before dark”.

Do not waste your time

I am shocked at how bad this book is. I have read all the other RS books and i feel like this pulled together bits from the other books and then added a load of clichés and that was that. I couldnt even finish it because I guessed exactly what the outcome would be

I enjoyed it more than I thought

I enjoyed this book, even though I went in knowing people had given it bad reviews. I wouldnt say it's an all time fave, but the twists shocked me, and that rarely happens anymore.
