***THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER***

'One of the most addictive thrillers I've read this year. A compulsive page-turner with high stakes and a heroine you find yourself absolutely rooting for' Gytha Lodge

Charlie Jordan is being driven across the country by a serial killer. Maybe.


Behind the wheel is Josh Baxter, a stranger Charlie met by the college ride share board, who also has a good reason for leaving university in the middle of term. On the road they share their stories, carefully avoiding the subject dominating the news - the Campus Killer, who's tied up and stabbed three students in the span of a year, has just struck again.

Travelling the lengthy journey between university and their final destination, Charlie begins to notice discrepancies in Josh's story.

As she begins to plan her escape from the man she is becoming certain is the killer, she starts to suspect that Josh knows exactly what she's thinking.

Meaning that she could very well end up as his next victim.

A game of cat and mouse is about to play out. In order to win, Charlie must do only one thing . . . survive the night.

Praise for this book

"A love letter to final girls and badass cinematic heroines, Sager's new tale ripples with taut pacing, nail-biting tension, and a series of twists that will leave you whiplashed. I devoured this book." - Erin A Craig

"Noir at its best! This one-sitting-read of a thriller will grab you in the opening pages and simply not let go until the very (and very shocking) end. Author Sager is a master of creating both psychological suspense and richly drawn characters, both good, bad and somewhere in the middle. Bravo!" - Jeffery Deaver

"Riley Sager's premise is bone-chilling--what if you caught a ride from a guy who could be a serial killer?--and his writing is propulsive and gripping. Woven throughout is a clever nod to classic movies, which adds to the intricate architecture of this absolutely terrific book." - Sarah Pekkanen
