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!
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.
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.
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.
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.

I am a retired teamster and this was so fun to read. I thought this was very entertaining. I have read them all.Published 5 months ago by Kindle Customer
It started with some promise, but lacked momentum throughout. I found much of the interactions between the killers to be a little dumb, but learning Jack Daniels origins was... Read morePublished 6 months ago by P. M.
Such a disturbing book - in an entertaining way! This has officially scared me off from truck stops in the future though. This is admittedly a short book, so I read it really fast. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Jeanine
