“Dark Roads is dark, it is disturbing, and it is very, very entertaining. The mysterious prologue will give you a clue as to how dark it is. It shows us some of the worst of human nature. Disturbing because it is based in part on a highway in Canada where women (most of whom were First Nation) have gone missing with no resolution of their cases. Entertaining because the characters are so compelling, they force you to keep listening and listening and listening. Hailey is a remarkably strong young women whose ability to survive in the wilderness is truly a gift from her beloved father. Beth’s character really evolves in the book from a young woman with no purpose in life, who feels sorry for herself and can’t stand being controlled by her parents into someone with a purpose – find out who murdered her sister Amber in the small town of Cold Creek along the Canadian highway that has claimed many women over the years. Johnny is almost too good to be true – but thank heavens he stays true to himself. And, then there is Wolf – the best dog a woman could ever have. Chevy Stevens is at her best in this thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat through the entire book.”Nancy, Fiction Addiction
“'You want to know which one I am, where I fit into the timeline of broken lives. Does it matter? We all share the same story, even if our killers are different, and we want to tell you our secrets. But that's the thing with whispers. You have to listen closely to hear us.' Inspired by a real location, Dark Roads by Chevy Stevens is a quietly compelling read full of chilling details and betrayals. The story is told through two converging timelines and centers on two young women who need to find answers before more girls go missing. Content warnings for murder, descriptions of human remains, stalking, pedophelia, death of loved ones, torture, assault, harm to animals”Faith, Page 158 Books
