Yesterday I decided that I was going to make the hour drive through highways that I am unfamiliar with and nervous as all heck to drive through. I hate driving through the East bay. There are so many crazy highways with confusing routes, and let’s not even mention the crazy drivers. It’s often like Mad Max on those highways. Today I am going to conquer my fear and just do it. My baby wants to go to a water park and I am just the mom to do it! Well… I’m his only mom, so there is that.

Riley’s not about to be told what she can and cannot do–unless of course, there’s a gun at her head.

After driving through a violent storm, young married couple, Riley and Jake Marshall wind up stranded with a flat tire off the I95 near Yemassee, South Carolina. They thought this would be the worst part of their day. They were wrong.

When the tow truck arrives ahead of schedule, Riley and Jake think their luck has changed. Wrong again.

Jake’s expensive car is loaded onto the flatbed and the unsuspecting couple climb aboard. What begins as a car theft and mugging, turns much darker when the back-woods car thieves discover Jake’s family is worth millions.

Days pass, and Riley’s strong-willed mother is desperate for answers. Frustrated by the slow-moving police investigation, the family does some detective work of their own. What they uncover leaves them with more questions than answers. Are the police concealing evidence?

Or, does this closely-knit family have a secret they’re keeping?

Sometimes, the answers come from where they’re least expected.

The Lowlands is a suspenseful, fast-paced thriller about survival, corruption, and the blurry line between what’s right and wrong when fighting for your life or the life of someone you love.
