Pairing narratives of the U.S. Interstate Highway System’s construction and the invention of the American serial killer, Killer on the Road offers an exceptionally unsensationalized view of both. From hitchhikers and truck stops to the interstate’s destruction of Atlanta low-income neighborhoods, this work explores the ugly collision of interconnectedness and anonymity. Strand’s work is well-written and compelling, making it a quick read that will leave you considering the facts well after you’ve turned the final page.
