"An elegant crime story … packed with quirky, entertaining characters and told in flowing prose that has a life of its own…. Recommend this to action fans and to anyone who can respond to golden—if blood-soaked—prose."

"A crackerjack crime yarn chockablock with miscreants and a supersonic pace.”


"A gripping novel that will latch onto you and refuse to let go all the way to its explosive end. The End of the Road sizzles with the sparks of its looming conflagration.”
—Lee Martin, Pulitzer Prize finalist author of The Bright Forever

"THE END OF THE ROAD by the talented Andrew Welsh-Huggins starts with a bang. Literally. And the tension and stakes only rise from there. This is the riveting and highly entertaining portrait of two unlikely but relentlessly determined protagonists who are seeking justice and peace at any cost. Smart, engaging, and expertly written—don’t miss it.”
—David Bell, USA Today bestselling author of The Finalists
