Recommended Read: Route 12 by Marietta Miles

route-12-finalRoute 12 by Marietta Miles contains two unflinchingly  dark novellas that savagely slice up America’s  dark underbelly.

In Route 12 itself, which  takes place in the 1970s,  the lives of three troubled young people intersect brutally.

The second novella, the 1960s set Blood and Sin, focuses on  the tragic woman that circle Pastor Friend.  Both novellas are intense, chilling and completely gripping.
