Publisher's Summary

In number-one New York Times best-selling author Kelley Armstrong's latest thriller, the town of Rockton - and her fans - are in for another hair-raising adventure.

When you can't trust the people you're supposed to trust most, what do you do?

The secret town of Rockton has seen some tough times lately; understandable considering its mix of criminals and victims fleeing society for refuge within its Yukon borders. 

Casey Duncan, the town's only detective on a police force of three, has already faced murder, arson, and falling in love in the several months she's lived there. Yet even she didn't think it would be possible for an outsider to find the town and cause trouble in the place she's come to call home. 

When a US marshal shows up demanding the release of one of the residents - but won't say who - Casey and her boyfriend, Sheriff Eric Dalton, are skeptical. Then, hours later, the marshal is shot dead and the only visible suspects are the townspeople and Casey's estranged sister, smuggled into town to help with a medical emergency. It's up to Casey to figure out who murdered the marshal, and why they would kill to keep him quiet - before the killer strikes again.

Story was more crime fantasy than mystery...

Is crime fantasy a real thing? It feels like it in this book. I just found the whole premise so crazy and improbable though I was interested in the remote community vibe. But how the heck is it possible to have so many murders? I just don’t get it. Action sequences are a bit silly and the implied sex is a little cringey but the people and amazing voice acting saves this one.

A great listen

This is the fourth instalment of the Rocton series and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Fast paced, exciting and kept me on my toes as a reader.
