    Superior seuel to the author's first novel featuring truck driver Ben Jones The Never Open Desert DinerFor 20 30 pages I felt like putting this book down I'd just come off of Ken Bruen's In the Galway Silence and there's hardly anything written in the new century that can rival a Ken Bruen novelSomewhere aroun

Ben Jones protagonist of the glowingly reviewed Never Open Desert Diner returns in a devastatingly powerful literary crime novel about parenthood loss and the desert in winterWinter has come to Highway 117 a remote road through the Utah desert trafficked. I m between 4 and 45 starsSome books seem tailor made for seuels While you re reading them you get the sense that there s so much to the story and in some cases the author leaves you hanging But some books seem complete when you ve finished them and although you enjoyed spending time with the characters and found the story compelling you d never expect a seuel Of course there are other times you dislike a book you couldn t imagine reading a follow up but that s another storyI really enjoyed reading James Anderson s The Never Open Desert Diner see my review last year The story of a trucker in the Utah desert whose solitary life is turned upside down by the appearance of a mysterious woman was tremendously satisfying and even a little uirky and I loved the characters Anderson created But I was surprised to see that Anderson had written a seuel Lullaby Road not that it stopped me from grabbing it because I thought Ben s story was toldBoy was I wrong Ben is still working as a trucker on Route 117 which most of the year is either affected by back breaking heat or treacherous snow and ice He s trying to pull his life back together to some semblance of normalcy after he was shaken to the core by tragedy All he wants to do is make his deliveries get paid and surviveOne snowy morning making his routine stop for diesel before getting underway on his route the proprietor of the truck stop tells Ben someone left something for him It s not just something it s a small Hispanic child who refuses to speak and the child is accompanied by an over protective dog A note is pinned to the child which says Please Ben Bad trouble My son Take him today His name is Juan Trust you only Tell No One PedroPedro was the tire man at the truck stop but he seems to have disappeared No one will give Ben answers in fact everyone from the truck stop has disappeared He can t leave the child alone in the snow but the last thing Ben needs is a child to worry about especially one which appears to have a penchant to take off running in an instant He needs to find Pedro but he also needs to start his route before weather conditions get too treacherousThat split second decision changes everything for Ben Everything seems out of sorts on his route even the people and customers he knows all seem a bit different And in the course of the next several days he ll realize just how much danger is around him danger that threatens those he knows as well as him and the child in his care It s as bleak as the road that lies ahead of him Lullaby Road has a lot of twists and turns some which make sense and some which confuse so I m being purposely vague in my plot summary Ben is used to encountering people who have taken to the desert because they re not interested in social interaction and are on the run from something but Ben finds a lot about those he s known only casually and encounters some new personalities along the way Barely anyone is particularly friendly and some are downright deadlyI love the way Anderson tells a story and I love the hardscrabble characters he has created I never uite understood why so many people are uick to dislike Ben except for incidents they refer to in his past since he doesn t seem much different than the rest of them and his reactions to the situations he s in seem to be fairly natural yet many people call him out for his behavior But beyond that I was fully engrossed in this story even as it got a little confusing and ultimately darker than I had anticipatedI d definitely recommend reading Anderson s first book before this one as Lullaby Road refers to things that occurred in and characters from that book But this one is a truly worthy seuel I m not sure if another book is in store but now I m hoping there isNetGalley and Crown Publishing provided me an advance copy of the book in exchange for an unbiased review Thanks for making this available See all of my reviews at itseithersadnessoreuphoriablogspotcom or check out my list of the best books I read in 2017 at

Only by oddballs fugitives and those looking to escape the world So when local truck driver Ben Jones finds an abandoned mute Hispanic child at a lonely gas station along his route far from any semblance of proper civilization he knows something has gone. The Never Open Desert Diner wasn t an incredible book but it was good enough for me to be excited about this seuel I loved Ben and his long stretch of highway The characters and setting were ripe for a continuation perhaps many many further adventuresUnfortunately Lullaby Road didn t work for me About a third of the way through I realized I had absolutely no idea what was going on Characters blended together unanswered uestions lingered on too long so that I forgot I cared The seuence of events wasn t clear I think a lot of the plot reuires advances knowledge of the first book but I remembered it pretty well and it still didn t make sense so I dunnoThere are some charming moments where Ben gives us delicious social commentary from his uniue point of view Even while I had no idea what was happening with the plot the book has some charm Still I hated it overall
