Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Mile Marker by Terrill L. Davis is about a serial killer who kills people and then hides their bodies in the woods near the mile markers. One day he is trailed by a state trooper which leads to some bad happenings for him the next night. Matt and Clay are the two serial killers in the story who terrorize people on the highway.

The story is short but the author creates a convincing thriller with a lot of suspense and intrigue. The book is scary and being short one can finish it at one go. Two serial killers and an isolated highway - the story couldn't be more exciting than this. There is a lot of action and the author manages to build up the pace throughout. Matt and Clay capture your attention and so do the other supporting characters who add to the weight of the story.

Mile Marker is a book I liked for various reasons. Of course the fact that it is a thriller with suspense and intrigue woven into it is one reason. But the most important reason for liking it is because of the writer's skill in writing a short and compact thrilling story. The scenes and narrations are crisp and he does not stretch it at all. There was a time when I wished it was longer but then probably the impact would not have been so effective. This spine-chilling thriller is a must-read.
