Road Kill

by Hanna Jameson

Road Kill Synopsis

A gripping noir thriller from the author of the Sunday Times number one bestseller The Last. They want the truth. They'll kill to get it. Eli and Ronnie are two lawless Brits on the road in America. Their mission is to find Trent, a guy who screwed Eli over and disappeared. But now, after forty hours driving through yellow desert, eating at lonely motels, what seemed real is no longer certain. Where did Trent stay? What did he do? Did he even exist at all? Leaving violent killings in their wake, Ronnie and Eli can do nothing except keep travelling forward. These two men are trapped in a nightmarish road trip. And they know they must confront their own personal demons before they can come home. REVIEWS FOR HANNA JAMESON'S LONDON TRILOGY: 'Jameson's taut and spare narrative complements a gripping plot with unmistakable undertones of the legends of this genre, Chandler, Ellroy, Rankin' Red. 'Jameson writes like an angel on speed. Ellroy and sometimes Rankin walk you to the dark side brilliantly. Something You Are is no less gripping, shocking and relentless' Q Magazine. 'Jameson writes in turbo-charged shorthand, her fierce, sparse prose sparking off the page. She's able to evoke a whole scene with a single detail, and she's got a gift for getting under the skin of her characters' The Book Bag. 'Caustic and energetic ... Echoes of James Ellroy ... Those Crazy Freeways is a literary road movie smelling of hot American tarmac and cheap motels' Guardian.

Road Kill Press Reviews

'A brilliant, brash effort ... the deepest, darkest noir' newbooks, 5 stars. 'A seriously brilliant urban noir thriller that has you gripped from beginning to end, and Hanna Jameson is a thriller writer who the world will soon know more about' Nudge Book. 'This is no cosy home counties mystery; the author serves up caustic and energetic fare, with echoes of James Ellroy, in what is essentially a literary road movie smelling of hot American tarmac and cheap motels ... A fast-moving narrative' Guardian.
