Description
Remember that car that passed you near midnight on Route 66, doing 105 with its lights off? You wondered where it was going so quickly on that dark, dusty stretch of road, motor roaring, the driver glancing out the window as he blew by. You just saw the founder of the Suicide Motor Club. Be grateful his brake lights never flashed. Be grateful his car was already full. They roam America, littering the highways with smashed cars and bled-out bodies, a gruesome reflection of the unsettled sixties. But to anyone unlucky enough to meet them in the lonely hours of the night, they're just a blurry memory. That is, to all but one . . . Two years ago, they left a witness in the mangled wreck of her family car, her husband dead, her son taken. She remembers their awful faces, despite their tricks and glamours. And she's coming for them-her thirst for vengeance even more powerful than their hunger for blood. On the deserted highways of America, the hunters are about to become the hunted . . .

        Starred review from May 2, 2016
        Buehlman (The Lesser Dead) confirms his talent with this ambitiously structured rendering of the havoc and mayhem wrought by a sadistic pack of muscle car–obsessed vampires as they cut a homicidal path across 1960s America’s highways. When they snatch latent psychic Judith Lamb’s son from the backseat of the family vehicle and then cause an accident that kills her husband, they set her on a quest that’s destined to end in grisly destruction. Armed and educated by a cagey group of vampire hunters and prophetic dreams of failure, Judith hunts down the gang and seeks vengeance for her murdered family. With an entire section devoted to introducing the Suicide Motor Club and the inclusion of an older, progressive vampire repulsed by the gang’s wanton sadism, Buehlman successfully and unromantically portrays the brutal viciousness of their violence, yet gives them enough character and nuance to carry the reader’s morbid interest. Buehlman’s latest is gripping the whole way through, with a perfectly poignant ending.
