Overview

He is a man alone, a drifter haunting the back roads and highways of America. Every town he leaves behind preserves but a glimmer of him, the cool, handsome man with the teardrop scar whose presence fades with the sunlight.

But all that changes when a brutal assault forces him to play Good Samaritan for a beautiful young woman, placing him squarely in the crosshairs of a vengeful ex-con. Caught between duty to his fellow man and the anonymity of life on the road, the Samaritan struggles to resist the forces drawing him into a shadowy world of violence, intrigue and deception. When his estranged teenage daughter is threatened, the Samaritan will make his choice — and never look back.

Reaching from Chicago’s back alleys to West Hollywood’s sun-soaked streets to Wall Street’s vast corridors of power, this suspenseful novel introduces an unforgettable new hero to the ranks of contemporary American fiction.

Staccato rhythm. Machine gun fired sentences. Rabbit punches. Covered in white space. Slipping between characters. Bouncing between scenes. Nameless drifter. Open ending. As I read ROAD TO NOWHERE, I thought I might have multiple personality disorder. The way the scenes faded in and out, the way the characters never seemed to take hold, along with the way the characters played off of one another. With the rapid pace of the novel, I felt like I was dangling on the edge of a cliff by my fingernails. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy the ride, although I’m not really sure how I feel about the ending. But I am glad the book wasn’t much longer, otherwise I might have been forced to check myself into a hospital. This was an adrenaline ride from the first page to the last, and the quick scenes and short sentences only ratcheted up the pace. Afterwards, you may feel like you need to have your head examined.
