When Casey Maldonado and Death hitch a desperate ride away from one disaster, they throw themselves right into the middle of another one. The semi in which they are traveling crashes, and before the Grim Reaper takes Evan the Trucker away, Evan whispers to Casey about a stash hidden in the truck that she should keep away from them.

Them turns out to be a band of men who want that package no matter what it takes, and they believe Casey knows where—and what—it is. Alone and injured, Casey escapes from the hospital under the noses of her pursuers and hides out in the Kansas cornfields. The valuable stash turns out to be photos, truck manifests, and other information pointing Casey toward something big and complicated—a conspiracy? Smuggling? Blackmail? She can’t be sure.

Uncertain how to proceed, Casey is led by Death to a group of teenagers looking for something other than dust and crops to fill their days—and their nights. Using their limited resources, she finds her way into a maze of greed and desperation and into the clutches of people who don’t care who gets hurt as long as they get what they want.

Casey, determined that no one else should die because of the desires of one group of criminals, finds herself defending not only herself, but also the teenagers, a few other kind locals, and perhaps even the trucking industry itself.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The story moves apace, with a good look at small town America…what is unusual here is the use of the Grim Reaper as a foil. After all, how often can ‘death’ be a force for ‘good,’ much less a sounding board and an advance scout? Recommended.”

    " I really liked this book. I can't wait to go back and read the first one. I hope the series continues. The two main characters are truly compelling. "

    " Interesting for its insight into (of all things) the trucking industry, although I find the characters to be a bit too numerous to develop into more fully fleshed individuals with distinct identities. "

    " I really enjoy the series, although I would definately not enjoy Casey's life-style I could never get by without a shower daily or clean clothes that would suck. I really love the Grim Reaper though and his funny little remarks. "

    " a little to grim for my tastes. all grit and no glitter at all. no sparkling dialogue. no humor. "

    " I'm a little disappointed that she didn't return to the same town in the first book but still really enjoyed this one. The relationship between Casey and Death is the best part of this series. Also I loved Laura Ingall whatever her married name is in this, totally cracked me up :) "

    " It made me sad that each book she leaves behind all the characters she has met. What a lonely existence. I also keep waiting for her relationship with death to become more fleshed out but not much changed from the first book. "
