Publisher's Summary

"Chevy Stevens is a brilliant and unique talent and Dark Roads is an instant classic. My hat’s off to her." (C. J. Box, number one New York Times best-selling author of Long Range)

The Cold Creek Highway stretches close to five hundred miles through British Columbia’s rugged wilderness to the west coast. Isolated and vast, it has become a prime hunting ground for predators. For decades, young women traveling the road have gone missing. Motorists and hitchhikers, those passing through or living in one of the small towns scattered along the region, have fallen prey time and again. And no killer or abductor who has stalked the highway has ever been brought to justice.

Hailey McBride calls Cold Creek home. Her father taught her to respect nature, how to live and survive off the land, and to never travel the highway alone. Now he’s gone, leaving her a teenage orphan in the care of her aunt whose police officer husband uses his badge as a means to bully and control Hailey. Overwhelmed by grief and forbidden to work, socialize, or date, Hailey vanishes into the mountainous terrain, hoping everyone will believe she’s left town. Rumors spread that she was taken by the highway killer - who’s claimed another victim over the summer.

One year later, Beth Chevalier arrives in Cold Creek, where her sister Amber lived - and where she was murdered. Estranged from her parents and seeking closure, Beth takes a waitressing job at the local diner, just as Amber did, desperate to understand what happened to her and why. But Beth’s search for answers puts a target on her back - and threatens to reveal the truth behind Hailey’s disappearance....

A Macmillan Audio production from St. Martin's Press

"Dark Roads is a chilling, pulse-pounding thriller that also tugs at the heartstrings. It's everything you've come to love from a master of the psych thriller genre!" (Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of The Other Mrs.)

"My favorite Chevy Stevens book since Still Missing. Stevens reliably creates complex, resilient female characters, and Hailey and Beth - whose lives collide in Dark Roads - are utterly compelling. The suspense builds with every page, and the ending is a complete shocker." (Sarah Pekkanen, number one New York Times best-selling Author of The Wife Between Us)

Good story

This is a different perspective on the MMIW story but still relates some of the horror.

Good story, very engaging with great narration.

Absolutely captivating

From the very beginning of this novel I knew it was influenced by the highway of tears. Every woman in BC, indigenous or not knows and thinks about this unsolved case frequently. My mom made sure I didn't hitchhike as a teenager and this was edged into my brain as why. Chevy did a beautiful job of using 2 characters point of views to tell a heartbreaking and beautiful story of a fictional highway of tears. I loved that there were multiple readers who voiced the different narrations. Chevy always leaves me enthralled and ready for more and this novel was no different.

Gripping from the beginning of the Road

I was recommended to read ANY title by Chevy Stevens by a trusted, avid reader, so I jumped into Dark Roads, unaware this novel would stalk me...it was very hard to "put down" --found myself completely drawn into the heart thumping twists and turns of Dark Roads, all the while thinking I may know the killer and then bam, complete turn of events! HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book! Now the only question is, which Chevy Stevens do I read next?!

Don’t waste your time!

I hated all of these characters so much! The plot was okay but it was infuriating to listen to these characters doing and saying things that seemed at all times, too extreme, either in their forced instant relationships on in their reactions to events. It was honestly a tough one to finish.

Absolutely OUTSTANDING!!!!

This is an OUTSTANDING book. It kept me captivated from beginning to end. I did not realize that it is actually based on a true story or toad depending on your perspective. The road is called the Highway of Tears. This is a real road that spans 450 miles in British Columbia. There are signs on this highway warning women not to hitchhike, there is a killer on the loose and at the bottom of the sign there are pictures of some of the victims.
The publisher’s summary gives an excellent overview of the protagonist’s situation. She’s a 17 year old girl who has lost both parents. Her aunt takes her in but the husband is a little hinky. When she finds nude pics of herself on his computer she knows she has to get out of there. With the husband being in law enforcement she doesn’t think she’ll be believed.
As the daughter of a survivalist she is prepared to live in the forest nearby. Right off the Highway of Tears she doesn’t think anyone will look for her.
Narration is flawless.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Masterpiece

This is a masterpiece. Chevy Stevens’ is a brilliant writer and this is her best book yet.

The narrator’s did an excellent job.

I cannot recommend this book enough. The only suggestion I have is that you don’t read the full description. Part of what is revealed in the second paragraph doesn’t happen until nearly halfway through the book. I’d rather have had that been unexpected.

Worth every credit.

Great book

I couldn’t turn this one off - finished in 24 hours and ignored everything else I was supposed to be doing. This is well written...and just a really great book.

I'm glad I did not give up!

I'm not going to lie, even though I am a big fan of this author, the first ten or so chapters had me wondering if I'd made the right decision selecting the new book. however, there was a pivotal moment when I realized I was hooked! If you have the time and the patience this book is worth it! But it is a little challenging in the beginning. The audio is extremely well done and enjoyable.

Love this Author

I have read / listened to all her books and looked forward to this new release.
She did it again!
Everyone in Canada knows about the highway of tears in B.C. I hope Chevy opens the eyes of everyone who reads this book - and beyond.
Although a fictional story, Chevy draws us in with a relevant, timely and important message in her writing.

Chevy Stevens

An amazing author, have read all of her books except this one. I listened to this one while working as I am a housekeeper in just two days! I lost my mother she passed away in April so the very end of this audible was very touching to me and brought me comfort and hope that my mother is still here with me. Thank you!

Boring--and refuses to end!

I guess that I'm just not the intended audience for this book. The storyline drags on and on and on, with a YA cast of one-dimensional characters. No real suspense for me--I stopped caring what happened before the half-way mark. Chevy Stevens has done so much better.
