In #1 New York Times–bestselling 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 “eeing 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 “nd 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 “gure out who murdered the marshal, and why they would kill to keep him quiet—before the killer strikes again.
