C. J. Box’s newest book is “The Highway.” When former police investigator Cody Hoyt lost his job, his former rookie partner Cassie Dowell convinced him to look into a case where two sisters and their car simply vanished. While Cody is making his way to the lonely stretch of Montana highway where the sisters went missing, Cassie discovers that Gracie and Danielle Sullivan aren’t the first girls who have disappeared in the area. The majestic landscape appears to be the hunting ground for a killer whose viciousness is outmatched only by his intelligence – and he might not be working alone. “The Highway” is also available on cd and in OneClick Digital.
