She almost caught him once. Now, he’s back.
For three years, Investigator Cassie Dewell has been on a hunt for a serial killer known as the Lizard King whose hunting grounds are the highways and truck stops where runaways and prostitutes are most likely to vanish. Cassie almost caught him...once.
Working for the Bakken County, North Dakota sheriff's department, Cassie has set what she believes is the perfect trap and she has lured him and his truck to a depot. But the plan goes horribly wrong, and the blame falls on Cassie. Disgraced, she loses her job and investigation into her role is put into motion.
At the same time, Kyle Westergaard, a troubled kid whom Cassie has taken under her wing, has disappeared after telling people that he’s going off on a long-planned adventure. Kyle's grandmother begs Cassie to find him and, with nothing else to do, Cassie agrees—all the while hunting the truck driver.
Now Cassie is a lone wolf. And in the same way that two streams converge into a river, Kyle's disappearance may have a more sinister meaning than anyone realizes. With no allies, no support, and only her own wits to rely on, Cassie must take down a killer who is as ruthless as he is cunning. But can she do it alone, without losing her own humanity or her own life?

I have heard C.J. Box referred to as a writer's writer, as he is award winning, critically acclaimed, and admired by other authors. It's so easy to see why as his prose is sharp and evocative and his stories never slow.
Box is a resident of Wyoming and most of his books are set there but at times...

The conclusion (it would seem) to what is being called The Highway Quartet. Yes, quartet would indicate 4 books, but you never know - I wouldn't be surprised to see Cassie Dewell back for another adventure.
I can't help but give this one 5 stars. I always enjoy Box's novels. They are suspenseful....

Thanks to the publisher and net-galley for providing me with a free review copy of the book.
Wow! I am a huge fan of C.J. Box's Joe Pickett series, and when I initially requested this book, I did it on his name alone, thinking it was a new Pickett. I was a little disappointed when I realized that...

Let me say this. I love C.J. Box. I love Joe Pickett, I loved Cody Hoyt and I love Cassie Dewell.
That said, I think Box is kind of out of his element in this series. It's evidenced by the fact that the first book was originally labeled Cody Hoyt #1, then the second was Cody Hoyt #2/Cassie Dewell...

This book is a fitting end to this series. The first book I read by Mr. Box was The Highway. I absolutely fell hard for the author's writing. Since, than, I have read many other books from this author. Yet, this is probably my top favorite series.
The Highway is where I first was introduced to Ca...
