"The Highway Kind is the perfect gift for fans of Corvettes and other fast cars. . . . The stories in The Highway Kind seem to have been chosen with extreme care. All the material is new and the writing is crisp. The stories are perfect for that lazy half-hour between the holiday meal and the holiday nap. Even non-crime readers who own Mustangs will love this one."―Margaret Cannon, Globe and Mail [Canada]
"A high-octane anthology"―Publishers Weekly
"So good.... a fine collection of short crime thrillers."―Booklist

One reason I usually don't like collections like these is that you normally get one or two good (not great) stories and the rest are filler. Boy was I pleasantly surprised with this selection. I really shouldn't have been after noting the lineup of authors - quite a star studded list.
All of the stories are good and there are a few that are great. My favorite was THE KILL SWITCH by Willy Vlautin followed closely by THE PLEASURE OF GOD by Luis Alberto Urrea.
There are all kinds of stories in this collection, most of them dark, and all kinds of vehicles.
It was really a blast reading the assortment and I found some new authors I want to try out on longer pieces of their work.
