THE COLD KISS by John Rector (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
In this psychological thriller, a young couple heading out of town for a new life is offered $500 to take a hitchhiker to Reno. When the man dies and they discover two million dollars in his suitcase, they are forced to uncover his secrets. Before they know it, Nate and Sara are fighting for their lives.

All Nate and Sara want is a new life in a new town, away from the crime and poverty of their past. When they are approached at a roadside diner by a shady hitchhiker offering $500 for a lift, they wonder if their luck might be changing. At first it seems like so much easy money, but within a few hours the man is dead. Now, forced off the road by a blizzard and trapped in a run-down motel on the side of a deserted highway, Nate and Sara begin to uncover the man's secrets: who he was, how he died, and most importantly, why he was carrying two million dollars in his suitcase. Before they know it, Nate and Sara are fighting for their lives, and forced to decide just how far they're willing to go to survive.
