Overview

As much a clever crime thriller as it is sci-fi, this novel highly impressed me. --The TBR Pile

I love the idea of this futuristic Detroit. --Offbeat Vagabond Reviews

When hitchhiking becomes the profession that saves the city, who will save the hitchhikers?

Detroit is thriving, once again on the move. The key to this motion may be the fourths--professional hitchhikers who round out incomplete carpools, allowing the car entrance to the superfast, computer-controlled highways.

The city needs fourths. Fourths need the work. It's an easy way to earn some extra cash.

Or to end up dead.

Someone is killing fourths and the only one who can stop the killer is jaded homicide detective Andre LaCroix, who moonlights as a fourth himself.

Taking the Highway is the newest science fiction thriller from the authors of The Caline Conspiracy and Fate's Mirror.

Praise for Taking the Highway...

Wonderfully original story of mean streets, struggling cops, and old, old passions. Nice ride. --Richard A. Thompson, author of Frag Box

Good ideas, mystery, human interest, a romance that didn't make me nauseous and action, action, action! They have me revving my engine for their next novel. --Papyrus Reviews
