Marley | 2 comments Willo Davis Roberts I first encountered this book in 7th grade, so it definitely fell under the "Teen mystery" genre. I read this book in 2017, but the book was published years prior. I remember the cover and book itself looking fairly "old". Unfortunately I cannot remember the cover art.

In this book, a high school student is driving at night, and as he drives under an overpass, a man falls from the overpass and hits his car. Of course, the student has a hard time dealing with what just happened. One minor detail I can remember is that the boy goes back to the overpass and notices a lot of cigarette buds. Anyway, to take his mind away from the tragedy, he takes a few days off of school and takes his moms RV on a trip somewhere far to meet his brother. While on this journey, he keeps noticing a red Thunder-Bird car following him. At some point in the story, I believe a blue car begins to follow him as well, unfortunately I can't remember the type of car. The men following him isn't revealed until the end, when the student finally makes it to his brothers house. I have a vague memory of when the boy gets to his destination he's trying to quickly escape/run from the man in the thunderbird. At the end of the book it is revealed why the men were following him, and it does have something to do with the man from the overpass.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
