In this crime thriller, KILLER BY THE ROAD, a distraught individual grows deeper into depression after losing his job and family. He resorts to drinking and his distorted mind turns to vengeance to fix his problems. An incident that has eaten at him for years becomes his internal focus.

With victims showing up in both Chicago, Illinois and Connersville, Indiana from a killer by the road, people are living in fear. With pressures building, both Detective Jack Revelle and Detective Frank Harris strive diligently to catch the killer.

Finally, a tip will send Detective Jack Revelle into a face-to-face game-ending confrontation with the killer.

Ronald E. Hignite, author of KILLER BY THE ROAD, spent some time with The Big Thrill discussing his new thriller:

What do you hope readers will take away from this book?

I hope the readers of this book will take away an enjoyment of the story , a hope that through effort there is victory, and the faith in God that His support is present for man.

Was there anything new you discovered, or that surprised you, as you wrote this book?

I discovered in this my third novel as I wrote, with some creativity, I could include those things from my past such as my hometown and its memories in my book.

No spoilers, but what can you tell us about your book that we won’t find in the jacket copy or the PR material?

Detective Jack Revelle is an extension of the author’s personality and characteristics-what he eats and his behaviors.
