Great new review of my novel WHITE KNUCKLE in the San Francisco Review of Books.

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

“White Knuckle’ by Eric Red is well worth reading:

What do you do when a trucker starts playing games with you on the freeway? He’s trying to damage your car and make you stop. This woman attempts to get away and thinks she has when he drives on by. Unfortunately, he just went up and turned around and came back. Now he’s getting out of his truck. She’s locked her doors, but that doesn’t slow him down…

Mr. Red writes an interesting story about a man who has gone insane. He thinks the highways belong to him. He can pick his victims and torture them without remorse or guilt. No one can find him; or so he thinks.

We had the I-5 killer in the Pacific Northwest. It took a long time to take him down. So this premise is actually believable. What the killer in this story didn’t understand was that the FBI was after him. New technology allowed them to find DNA and compare marks on the bodies and find links that showed that a very old cold case was related to a more recent one. How long had this man been on the road? A long, long time…
The FBI agent is a newbie, trying to earn her special agent badge. When they haul in a potential suspect and she determines he’s not her man, she disappointed and feeling a bit bad that they accused him. He was glad to be cut free, but he offers to help if he can. She comes up with the idea she’ll travel with him and pretend to be his wife so she can try to locate the killer.
The reader will learn CB trash talk, learn the common terms for prostitutes, and learn about trucker bars. You’ll also find out just how far a person can go if they are determined. Both the cop and the killer are determined so the final confrontation is horrific, exciting, and a toss-up. You’ll keep flipping those pages until the end. Mr. Red knows how to keep your attention. His words flow well, the story holds up and you won’t forget it soon.”
