Overview
Thrilling crime stories about cars, driving, and the road from the world's bestselling and critically acclaimed writers.
Like fiction, cars take us into a different world: from the tony enclaves of upper crust society to the lowliest barrio; from muscle car-driving con men to hardscrabble kids on the road during the Great Depression; from a psychotic traveling salesman to a Mexican drug lord who drives a tricked-out VW Bus. We all share the roads, and our cars link us together.
Including entirely new stories from Michael Connelly, C.J. Box, George Pelecanos, Diana Gabaldon, James Sallis, Ace Atkins, Luis Alberto Urrea, Sara Gran, Ben H. Winters, and Joe Lansdale, THE HIGHWAY KIND is a street-level look at modern America, as seen through one of its national obsessions.

This high-octane anthology from Millikin (Phoenix Noir) features 15 stories about cars and crime by top writers in the suspense field. Highlights include Ben H. Winters’s “Test Drive,” in which a drive through the canyons of L.A. turns into a tense confrontation between a car dealer and his increasingly unhinged customer; Michael Connelly’s “Burnt Matches,” in which Lincoln Lawyer Mickey Haller meets an unhappy former client in—where else?—the backseat of his Lincoln Town Car; and James Sallis’s “What You Were Fighting For,” in which the Driver from Sallis’s novel Drive shows up at a garage to ask the help of a mechanic and leaves a lifelong impression on the man’s young son. Wallace Stroby slipstreams behind Richard Matheson and Steven Spielberg’s Duel in “Night Run,” about a salesman who runs afoul of a pissed-off biker. George Pelecanos tells a downbeat tale about two drag-racing brothers in “Triple Black ’Cuda.” Other contributors to this entertaining volume include Ace Atkins, C.J. Box, Kelly Braffet, Sara Gran, and Joe R. Landsale. (Oct.)
