I see a flash and something in front of me. Something tall with black material flapping around it like the tail ends of an old-fashioned duster. Long, straw-colored hair. A scraggily goatee. A man? Whats a man doing at the side of the road in the middle of nowhere? Whys he just standing there? Why doesnt he get out of the way? I yank the wheel back the other way, and the car swerves around him.
And heads straight off the road.
When the world stops bouncing and the car settles, I try to keep my eyes focused, but everything blurs around the edges. The waves ebb, and I hear a crunching sound, like boots on gravel. Straining to see, I barely make out . . . What is that? A flag? No, its that flapping black material. I think its the man I swerved to miss.
A sweet, melodious voice makes its way through the undulating roar in my ears. "Let me help you."
Help. Yes, I need help.

This night will prove to be anything but routine. A car accident in the middle of the Nevada desert leaves Allie stranded, and when she regains consciences, she is greeted by a funny little man in a big red bow tie who helps her out and takes her across the road to a diner that Allie cant remember being there before. Sitting in the diner Allie begins to question her rescuer who has introduced himself as Vinnie. But the more she questions she ask the more allusive Vinnie becomes. Frustrated, Allie looks out the diners window and sees herself being pulled out of her mangled vehicle.
This is one of those books that the reader needs to pay close attention to in order for it to make the best sense. While the plot and the dialog are not overly complicated the author leave small clues for the reader, especially in the first half of the book.
I really enjoyed this book. It was different and fascinating up to the very end.
