Dark Roads: A Novel Audio CD – Unabridged, August 3, 2021 by Chevy Stevens (Author), Angela Dawe (Reader), Brittany Pressley (Reader), Isabella Star LaBlanc (Reader)

 

The Cold Creek Highway stretches close to five hundred miles through British Columbia’s rugged wilderness to the west coast. Isolated and vast, it has become a prime hunting ground for predators. For decades, young women traveling the road have gone missing. Motorists and hitchhikers, those passing through or living in one of the small towns scattered along the region, have fallen prey time and again. And no killer or abductor who has stalked the highway has ever been brought to justice.

Hailey McBride calls Cold Creek home. Her father taught her to respect nature, how to live and survive off the land, and to never travel the highway alone. Now he’s gone, leaving her a teenage orphan in the care of her aunt whose police officer husband uses his badge as a means to bully and control Hailey. Overwhelmed by grief and forbidden to work, socialize, or date, Hailey vanishes into the mountainous terrain, hoping everyone will believe she’s left town. Rumors spread that she was taken by the highway killer―who’s claimed another victim over the summer.

One year later, Beth Chevalier arrives in Cold Creek, where her sister Amber lived―and where she was murdered. Estranged from her parents and seeking closure, Beth takes a waitressing job at the local diner, just as Amber did, desperate to understand what happened to her and why. But Beth’s search for answers puts a target on her back―and threatens to reveal the truth behind Hailey’s disappearance.

My Review


 
The book, will keep you on the edge of your seat, and just when you think you have all the answers, guess again, or maybe you are right?
Young woman missing, murdered, brutalized, what is going on?
We meet some of those who become the victims, and this is a vey dark road we are traveling.
With the author’s notes we learn that this story is based on an actual serial killer, killing up to twenty woman on the “Highway of Tears.” The location and names were change in this read, but the roots are in truth.
Be careful you will soon be holding your breath!
Mine was an audio book and the narrators are awesome!
I received this book through Net Galley and the Macmillian Audio, and was not required to give a positive review.
