|Summary, etc.:|| Ben Jones lives a life of quiet and relative solitude, working as a trucker in one of the most isolated areas of the Utah desert, which has become a haven for fugitives and others looking to hide from the world. A preacher who carries a huge cross up and down the highway, brothers living in abandoned train cars, and Walt—the owner of The Well-Known Desert Diner, which hasn’t been open since 1987—are among Ben’s clients on that desolate strip of Highway 117. When Ben meets Claire, a mysterious woman he finds playing a cello in an abandoned housing development, he is drawn into a love affair that has serious and life-threatening consequences not only for them both but for the others who have made this desert their sanctuary. Ultimately, a conflict erupts among Claire, her ex-husband, and a suspicious third party over a precious cello. Ben winds up helpless in the middle of this dispute, which reignites a decades-old tragedy at The Well-Known Desert Diner, referred to by the locals as The Never-Open Desert Diner. In this unforgettable story of love and loss, Ben must learn the enduring truth that some violent crimes renew themselves across generations.
