The Highway by C. J. Box
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This is a dark thriller that is not for the fainthearted, with one of the most impressive and shocking twists you’re likely to ever read. C. J. Box is famed for writing a long running series with Joe Pickett but this instead features Cody Hoyt, a minor character from a previous novel who’s persuaded by his son to investigate when the son’s girlfriend and a friend go missing. It turns out this isn’t the first time girls have gone missing in this remote part of Montana and Box’s brilliantly atmospheric writing perfectly frames his twisted, scary plot.

If you like C. J. Box you might also like to read books by Linwood Barclay, Michael Connelly and Harlan Coben.
