Eli and Ronnie are two British ex-cons on the road in America. Their mission is to find Trent, a guy who screwed them over and disappeared. But now, after 40 hours driving through yellow and beige desert, eating at lonely motels, what seemed real is no longer certain. Where did Trent stay? What did he do? Did he even exist at all? Leaving violent killings in their wake, Ronnie and Eli can do nothing except keep traveling. Now, trapped in a nightmarish road trip full of violence and deceit, these two men must confront their own personal demons before they can come home.
When I received ‘Roadkill‘ book, I didn’t know that it’s part of a series and that there are two other books previous to this. So, if you intend to read it, start first with ‘Something you Are’, then continue with ‘Girl Seven‘ and only after this two books, start reading ‘Road Kill’.
The series is called ‘The Underground series’ or ‘London Underground‘. You can found it by both names.
When I start reading The Road Kill I felt that I don’t understand too much. There were so many names in so few pages that I had to concentrate very hard to memorize each of them and who they are. Now I understand why obviously. It’s only because there are two previous books which, unfortunately, I didn’t read.
Leaving this apart, this book is something new for me. I’ve never read a book about gangsters, drugs, and about their life. This book has everything. From drug dealers and gangsters to religion, Satan and Bible. I’m sure you all heard a few years ago about a girl who’ve been murdered and her body was found after two weeks in a water tank in a hotel. Well, Hanna Jameson talks about it too.
The book starts with Ronnie being back in USA for his brother ‘s release from prison. He kills his brother’s lawyer, and then her starts this road trip with his friend, Eli, with the mission of finding Trent, a guy who must likely will be killed by them.
To be honest I would have preferred to have a more palpitant trip as I found this quite unpredictable and boring from time to time. It attracted my attention only at the end at The Staten Island.
Back in London, Daisy feels that she can’t cope anymore with taking care of everything, including the Underground club, as Noel is having a bad time and is drunk every time. Nick, her boyfriend, broke up with her and asked her to move out, and Edie, her boss, intends to sell the club.
To end this, I would recommend it to everyone who wants to spend some quality time reading about gangsters and drug dealers and killings.
Thank you Netgalley for this opportunity in return for an honest review.
