Those Crazy Freeways: A gripping noir thriller from the bestselling author of The Last by Hanna Jameson

The gripping noir thriller from the bestselling author of The Last.

They want the truth. They'll kill to get it.

Eli and Ronnie are two lawless Brits on the road in America. Their mission is to find Trent, a guy who screwed Eli over and disappeared. But now, after forty hours driving through yellow desert, eating at lonely motels, what seemed real is no longer certain. Where did Trent stay? What did he do? Did he even exist at all?

Leaving violent killings in their wake, Ronnie and Eli can do nothing except keep travelling forward. These two men are trapped in a nightmarish road trip. And they know they must confront their own personal demons before they can come home.

Previously published as Road Kill.


'Jameson's taut and spare narrative complements a gripping plot with unmistakable undertones of the legends of this genre, Chandler, Ellroy, Rankin' Red.

'Jameson writes like an angel on speed. Ellroy and sometimes Rankin walk you to the dark side brilliantly. Something You Are is no less gripping, shocking and relentless' Q Magazine.

'Jameson writes in turbo-charged shorthand, her fierce, sparse prose sparking off the page. She's able to evoke a whole scene with a single detail, and she's got a gift for getting under the skin of her characters' The Book Bag.

'Caustic and energetic... Echoes of James Ellroy... Those Crazy Freeways is a literary road movie smelling of hot American tarmac and cheap motels' Guardian.
