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!
Intense, nail-biting, stomach-churning, sitting on the edge of your seat.... All that, and more.
Detective Jack Daniels is on her way for a long-overdue vacation, travelling to meet her fiance at a secluded cabin. But along the way she runs into a bit of trouble. Trouble that could well cost her her life.
And that's all you get from me this tome. Any more said could ruin some of the suspense, even though more could be said about the story itself without being a standard spoiler. This book is so calculatingly paced, building suspense with every word, that anything said could spoil some of the building emotional turmoil, thereby spoiling the book (though not the story). Not doing it. This is just too special to risk any kind of spoil.
Now, time for a confession. This book is filled with errors, primarily backward-facing front quotes and words run together. This is EXTREMELY unusual for the author, so he has been alerted to the problems, which I am trusting him to correct. I did not down-score, since the occurrence is so unusual in his books (at least the several I have read).
And for the kids... My guess is you'll be reluctant to let anyone younger than late teens to read this. Not due to profanity or sexual content. It just is likely to be too disturbing for sub-adult maturity levels.
They strike up a sick kind of friendship, wanting to show their sick adventures with one another. Then walks in Lt. Jack Daniels and one of the serial killers recognizes her ..... Well let's say things really get interesting. There is much more to the story ... give it a chance ... now I am going to look into the novel Afraid ....Smiles mischievously.
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.
Truck Stop will show you just what haunts them. There’s not just one serial killer biding their time, waiting for their next delicious victim. Imagine them plotting together, working together, and trying to one up each other.
In walks a woman. A homicide cop who thinks she knows all about serial killers. She’s minding her own business and stops in for a cup of java to keep her awake on the road. What happens next is a trip down the deepest, darkest rabbit hole.
So twisted on so many levels. Just the way I like em.
