Rhubarb - M.H. Van Keuren
Anyone who has ever held a sucky job will sympathize with Martin. All those long hours on the road--of course he listens to that ridiculous paranormal talk show. But, does he actually believe that stuff? Cheryl hopes not.

She's more down to earth. At least she was until the aliens abducted her. Now it's up to Martin to get her home again. This may sound like a farfetched plot, but the story works because its characters are believable. Even the aliens are believable. Their motivations are just as selfish as those of humans--a scary thought indeed. "Rhubarb" is a story that pulls you in and doesn't let you go until you're done reading. It delivers plenty of satire and thrills, and when you're done reading, truck stop pie will never taste quite the same.
