Since I am on a roll with Jack Kilborn books I went for Truck Stop- A Psycho Thriller.

Truck Stop is a short story (novella) of 15,000 words. It took me less than an hour to read it. The story was really good but, since it was short it left me wanting more.

***My advise is to save your money and put it towards Serial Uncut. Truck Stop is included in Serial Uncut along with more of the story. I read Serial Uncut and actually skipped over the Truck Stop section because I already read it. Serial Uncut will give you what you are looking for.***

Serial Uncut wraps the original Serial (Blake Crouch, Jack Kilborn, and J.A. Konrath), Bad Girl (Blake Crouch), and Truck Stop (Jack Kilborn and J.A. Konrath) all into one.

Truck Stop has gotten me interested in the Jack Daniels series by J.A. Konrath (aka Jack Kilborn). I will be headed in that direction next. Mr Konrath/Kilborn sure knows what he is doing!

I read "Serial" before I read "Truck Stop", as I suspect most people did since Serial was a free Kindle book. I sort of saw Serial coming as the second installment as I feverishly read Truck Stop. As I read Truck Stop I was locked onto my Kindle like Candi with an I was locked in stocks in the semi. What a terrific work of suspense blended with horror and cheese curds. Possibly the most attractive feature of Kilborne's prose is that its pictures are painted perfectly with just the right words. They are uniquely his and not a poor man's Stephen King like so many other horror writers I could name.

Instead of rehashing the whole story from beginning to end and labelling it a review, I'll say this: I greatly enjoyed the characters, the suspense and the story. Kilborne carefully plotted and planned for this. This is a terrific story and I can't wait for the third installment.

Really REALLY good novella! I absolutely loved this book but its way to short Non stop suspense with graphic descriptions. If you're squeamish, don't do it. I personally couldn't put it down!

Take a deep breath before you start reading, because this baby comes at you hard and fast. J.A. Konrath's style is "lean and mean," so don't expect long, flowery descriptions.

Pull over at this TRUCK STOP for a strong cup of serial killers, hookers, and a very likeable female cop named Jack Daniels.

I read it on an airplane---which was creepy enough. Sure glad I didn't read it at a truck stop.

First off I'll say this is indeed gruesome, more so than I normally read. While I lean towards hard-boiled, this falls more into the serial killer/horror category, so I may not be the best judge. I like Jack Daniels; she has her head on straight and she knows how to handle herself. The writing is vivid, though I found the dialog at points somewhat clunky, though not enough to distract. I believe, like many other reviews, it would have been enjoyable if it were longer, if my discomfort as a reader was dragged out further as I cringed. The descriptions are well done, they throw enough out there to get your imagination rolling, but not enough to put the brakes on. This leaves your mind to run wild and there were passages here that merely recalling makes my skin crawl - to that, I say "Well done!" It seemed as though the story was a bit rushed, while it was suspenseful, with more to read that suspense could have been amplified to maximum.

Truck Stop is an exclusive ebook on Kindle by Jack Kilborn and J.A. Konrath. You may not know this unless your an avid fan but Kilborn and Konrath are one in the same.

It brings 3 characters together from 3 different books. Donaldson (Serial), Taylor (Afraid), and Lieutenant Jack Daniels (from the Jack Daniels series). Two serial killers and a cop come face to face in a Truck Stop. Never having met before they happen upon each other while chatting it up Jack (obviously having really bad luck with serial killers) happens to walk into the same Truck Stop. Donaldson recognizes her and immediately wants her for his collection. Taylor and Donaldson fight over who actually wins before settling on coin toss.

It's all very fast paced and exciting. I really enjoyed reading all three of these characters together. I love these little short stories.

The 3 short stories were mediocre at best. Yes, these stories are about individuals that should never be allowed to walk the earth, their sense of morality does not exist, but they lack the depth of character that you might find in other longer novels of the same genre. I purchased the book based upon the extreme nature presented by the publisher. I do not feel it lived up to the gruesome details that they proclaim. If you like this genre, look to some of the Jeffery Dever novels where you get a glimpse into a serial killer with a complete story line and characters that you can look forward to in the next book.
