On a journey from the Jersey Shore to the Pacific Ocean, the driver crosses an America twisted beyond all recognition, as if in a fevered dream. He is pursued by ghosts of his traumatic past and the police, who have discovered the disturbing secret in his basement. On and off the road, we glimpse the lives of people who are touched by the driver in one way or another - a porn star who can no longer perform; a widower looking for love; two parents who return day after day to the spot where their son was killed. Speeding past and stopping off along the way, the driver meddles, mixes and murders, heading towards the edge of the New World and to his own macabre realisation of the American Dream. "Cross Country Murder Song" is a unique and visceral novel from a new voice in contemporary noir. Gripping, relentless and impossible to put down, it is a 21st-century road trip to the heart of darkness.
