Strictly speaking a debut crime novel, this however qualifies as a horror story if only because of the sheer visceral intensity of the action and situations. Nate and Sara are broke and on the run when they come across a hitchhiker and begin a journey to damnation and beyond. This is a throat-grabbing, sweat-inducing stuff and the pace is absolutely relentless. If the fates of the downcast protagonists doesn't involve you, you have no heart. Horrific but believable.
Nate and Sara are broke -- and on the run from the past. When a shady hitchhiker offers them cold hard cash for a lift, they can't afford to say no. But very soon they'll be wishing they had. Because picking him up is about to become the biggest mistake they ever made -- and the price they'll have to pay will be greater than they could ever have imagined...
