swerve

Idgie Says:
This book grabbed my attention during the first chapter, you could feel tension knowing that something calamitous was going to happen immediately.  The descriptive phrases were fabulously envisioning of the surroundings. The pace is fast and furious and you are find yourself mouth open and scenes unfold and the amount of duplicity and knowledge is discovered.  

But I have often mentioned I am a person that does not enjoy the overly torturous violent scenes in books and shy away.  This book becomes extremely violent with incredibly sick ways being found to injure or kill.  It did become too much for me in the end and I put the book down. 

I have to admit though that Kristine appeared to be opening a memory back to some repressed past actions that could conceivably make her a bad-ass and due to that I might cheat and flip to the last chapter........just to see how it all turns out.

Description

In the electrifying tradition of Dean Koontz and Gillian Flynn comes the first riveting psychological thriller from the New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author!

It’s high summer in the Mojave Desert, and Kristine Rush and her fianc√©, Daniel, are en route from Las Vegas to Lake Arrowhead, California, for the July Fourth holiday weekend. But when Daniel is abducted from a desolate rest stop, Kristine is forced to choose: return home unharmed, but never to see her fianc√© again, or plunge forward into the searing desert to find him…where a killer lies in wait.

One road. One woman. One killer.

Sprinting against the clock, and uncertain if danger lies ahead or behind, Kristine must blaze an epic path through the gaudy flash of roadside casinos, abandoned highway stops, and a landscape rife with horrors never before imagined. Desperate to save her doomed husband-to-be, Kristine must summon long forgotten resources if she’s to go head-to-head against this unpredictable killer. And she’d better hurry. Because she only has twenty-four hours…to make one hell of a trip.
