The Midnight Road is the latest novel written by one of America's finest storytellers of dark fiction. As with Piccirilli's other work, the protagonist begins a journey of self discovery, weaving in and out of their own troubled past that somehow connects to a current threat. While the story itself wasn't as gripping as his other book, Headstone City, this one still has the trademarks that Piccirilli fans have come to know and love - flawed, haunted characters caught up in dangerous situations, wrapped in a beautifully detailed world of pain. The only problem I had with the book was the occasional over-analyzing of characters, delving into their psychological motivations throughout the story over and over again. I felt the story wanted to break away with greater speed and energy - and should have - only to be held back sometimes by this technique. That aside, I thoroughly enjoyed this thriller and as always, look forward to the next Piccirilli tale.
