Next to Before I Go to Sleep, this is probably the best book I've read all year. The Lonely Mile by Allan Leverone tells the story of a truck driver and former soldier who gets in the way of a serial killer who is about to capture his next victim. He saves the girl, but thereby creates an undesirable connection. How that plays out is the subject of the book. While technically there were a couple of faults which might give away one of the surprises, I liked the characters and the plot twists and found the last few chapters absolutely gripping! Highly recommended.
