Throughout his sordid career, not much has fazed John Constantine. As long as he's had his smokes and his freedom, he's always been in control. But what happens when those things are taken away from him? In this collection, Constantine finds himself in a new kind of hell: a maximum-security penitentiary. Stripped of his trademark trench coat, his pack of Silk Cuts and the safety net of his personal connections, he must adapt to a hard place governed by even harder men, where weakness is rewarded by death...or worse. Later, Constantine sets out to uncover the nature of the forces that have conspired against him and experiences a different kind of danger while hitchhiking. He's faced many monsters in his day, but none like the insidiously creepy ones that prowl America's highways. Along the way, a tiny roadside diner finds itself home to a variety of travelers forced off the road by a cataclysmic snowstorm. Families, drifters, truckers and vacationers are joined by a legendary serial killer--and a certain Englishman with a knack for being in the wrong place at the right time.
