End of the Road (English Edition) Kindle版
LS Hawker grew up in suburban Denver, indulging her worrisome obsession with true-crime books, and writing stories about anthropomorphic fruit and juvenile delinquents. She wrote her first novel at 14.
Armed with a B.S. in journalism from the University of Kansas, she had a radio show called “People Are So Stupid,” edited a trade magazine and worked as a traveling Kmart portrait photographer, but never lost her passion for fiction writing.
She’s got a hilarious, supportive husband, two brilliant daughters, and a massive music collection. She lives in Colorado but considers Kansas her spiritual homeland. She is the author of The Drowning Game, a USA Today Bestseller, and Body and Bone. Visit her website at LSHawker.com.--このテキストは、paperback版に関連付けられています。

In all three of her novels, Hawker has proven herself to be a great architect of perfectly timed twists and turns so that the reader closes the last page feeling like they just rode one of the greatest American coasters - a bit winded, heart pounding, but thrilled by the ride and ready to go again and again. The beginning of the tale is like being pulled up the first big hill of a coaster, link by link, knowing that a big drop is coming, full of anticipation, not really knowing when you will go over the top and be caught up in the thrilling speed of the fall. And then you are off and you better clear your day because you won't be able to get off the ride until you pull into the station. I truly can't wait to see what this author will bring to us next.
The author takes the reader on a wild roller coaster ride as tech researcher / programmer Jade Veverka tries to protect and maintain control of her invention, a computer program that communicates with Autistic people, but secretive dealings by her employers, and a strangeness about the surrounding small Kansas town, has Jade realizing that things aren't what they seem, and danger lurks around every corner.
As the reader follows Jade's dilemma, the multitude of suspenseful plot twists and turns will give them goosebumps, and keep them sitting on the edge of their seats.
End Of The Road is a fascinating thriller that you won't be able to put down, it will leave you wanting more!
For readers looking for a high-tech suspenseful read, End of the Road is a good bet. As for me, I’m headed off to make my tin foil hat.
I ended up spending parts of two days of our tropical getaway glued to her book. Within the first twenty minutes I said to myself, "Shoot! I already can’t put the book down."
Here’s what I liked her book:
• Hawker keeps the reader hooked from chapter to chapter.
• Her writing is very readable. I only had to look up the definition of one word.
• The details are very Kansas-y.
• The intensity is…intense—and then it gets even more intense the last quarter of the book.
• The ending (about Olivia) made me yell “Nooooo!”
One detail didn’t make sense to me: at one point in the story the “gang” could look back and still see the lights of the compound after walking three miles away from it. Seems like a stretch to me.
Also, the copyeditor probably needed to comb through the manuscript one more time to clean up a few scattered bits and pieces.
But if you’re looking for an escape for a day or two, then buy this book!
