C.J. Only a small portion of this, the second Cody Hoyt novel, comes at you from Cody’s point of view.

Two vastly different worlds that met only at places like this. If you have young daughters who like to drive around the countryside looking for action, you probably won’t get much sleep after reading this one. The cloth drapes separating the cab from the sleeping cabin had long ago been replaced by clear shower curtains that allowed him to see clearly into the back. Her tenaciousness serves her well and the results are explosive. I listened to this book on a drive from ID to MN.
He cursed that red-haired girl until her taillights faded away in the dark. With one exception, I felt that the events of The Highway, unlike C J Box's other works, book were predictable and and not particularly interesting. He called himself the Lizard King. The truck was flat black, stripped of chrome, and as subtle as a fist. Just as Cody was starting to grow on me.....Box killed him off. It wasn't unusual; they tended to partner up to some extent. He breathed a sigh of relief. Then after the set up, the vibe created in the beginning fell apart.
C.J. He'd seen the cutaways in the floorboards of some trucks, and he cringed when he witnessed fat truckers parking as close as possible to the truck stop restaurant so they wouldn't have to waddle far to eat. With one exception, I felt that the events of The Highway, unlike C J Box's other works, book were predictable and and not particularly interesting.
Truck stop employees cooked up fried chicken and potato wedges for the lighted bins at the front counter and manned the cash registers selling salted snacks, energy boosters, beef jerky, and drinks. The loads and destinations varied from circuit to circuit, and sometimes he forgot what he was hauling. So after breakfast, in light rain outside of Mandan, he parked at a rest area and pulled on his raincoat. He waited for the segregation between the professionals and the amateurs to breach. Sure, the drivers would get on their radios and laugh at the rubes they'd run into inside and mock their looks or stupid conversations, but inside they were segregated between the amateurs and the professionals, the clueless consumers — the civilians, the amateurs — and the cloistered universe of the providers. I love that Box can write a totally different style book from his others and it be just as good. She had requested to work with Cody, eager to learn from his well-known investigative skills, and now she has betrayed the very man whom she wanted as a mentor. The carpeted floormats had been pulled and stashed, leaving a bare metal floor. This book is part of a three book series starring a Sheriff named Cody Hoyt. This majestic landscape is the hunting ground for a killer whose viciousness is …
The air outside hummed with rumbling engines. I really enjoyed the first Cody Hoyt novel from CJ Box--an interesting character with an interesting way of doing things outside the standard Joe Pickett (another good character) morals. I will read the next Joe Pickett book with my fingers crossed. Who would they look for to rescue them? That meant they had thumbed a ride or made arrangements for a pickup later. Two teenaged sisters traveling on their own between divorced, distracted parents disappear when the oldest sister takes a detour to visit her boyfriend. Before he could swing his rig over into her lane and force her off the highway she stomped on her accelerator and shot ahead. He'd arrived early to the truck stop, an hour before dark. When he was able to catch back up with her in the passing lane she looked up and their eyes met for a brief second.
Sort of like a story that takes place on an island in the ocean can't help but be affected by the water in many ways-- overt or subtle. What was the point?
Events jump out like the sudden bark of a jackhammer. On a long, dark, lonesome stretch of Montana highway, they encounter a long-haul trucker for whom road rage is an appetizer, warming him up for the murderous, maniacal main course. His anticipation built throughout the day as he rolled west.
She was fairly new in the job, and her success in the role seemed to be explained by her getting angry. More precisely, they feared his legend, the idea of him.
Even if the plot twist hadn't happened, this book still left a bad taste.
I don’t do spoilers but this had one intense moment that floored me! Then I realized that I enjoyed CJ Box's writing and his characters. His lightweight Taurus 738 TCP semiauto in .380 ACP. Certainly, there is a lot of implied violence and some actual violence but the disturbing part is the threatened violence (which, thankfully, never gets explained in detail). I would give this 5 stars except I have issues with the Beartooth Highway being a central part of the story.
After I finished this book I felt like I needed a shower. In an oblong, hard, and hinged box once used for sunglasses was a syringe filled with Rohypnol.
