Book Review: Desperate Journeys

Title: Desperate Journeys

Author: Russ Towne

Narrator: Henry Marshall



Desperate Journeys by Russ Towne takes listeners on a thrill ride with five gripping stories of suspense where ordinary people face impossibly long odds, conquer fear, and find the strength to survive horrifying circumstances. 

“Desperate Journey”: It’s everyone’s worst highway nightmare. A breakdown on the road to the “happiest place on Earth” leads to a night of terror for one teenage boy. 

“No Choice at All”: A road trip for an interview with the boss turns into a night of lethal danger and desperate courage when a man stops to give roadside assistance. 

“The Blood Oath”: A mother’s secret, a lost identity, and a father’s decision bring peril to a man who learns who he is and what he’s made of in trying to save a young woman. 

“The Misunderstanding”: A luggage mix-up focuses a violent criminal’s attention upon a mild-mannered man and his family. 

“The Patsy”: A swindler with violent tendencies discovers elderly widows can be dangerous, too.

My Review

4/5 Stars

A solid collection of suspenseful stories. Short but definitely kept my interest with each story.

Narration was fitting for this collection.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
