In #1 New York Times bestseller Kelley Armstrong’s latest thriller, the hidden town of Rockton is about to face a challenge none of them saw coming: a baby.
In the mysterious town of Rockton, things are never what they seem. But for once they have a break in the drama. Maybe just an overnight getaway, but that’s enough for Det. Casey Duncan and her love, Sheriff Eric Dalton.
Camping out in the Yukon is quite a bit different than camping at the KOA, while the ground is covered with snow, between wolves and hostile former settlers, it’s still taking your life into your own hands.
Waking up to discover Eric gone, Casey thinks she hears a baby crying. But that isn’t possible out there. Who would have a baby in the winter out here? With her overgrown pup, Storm by her side, Casey goes to investigate.
What she finds is a mysterious woman lying dead in the snow. A head injury and a shotgun pellet but the biggest surprise is inside the woman’s coat. A baby. A very tiny and new baby.
Taking it back to town has everyone out of sorts. No one under 18 is allowed in Rockton. There are very good reasons for that. But while the police try and find out who the child belongs to, the baby will have to stay with some very sketchy residents.
Finding answers requires going not only to the First Settlement but also the Second. Dealing with hostiles and people who long ago forgot their humanity. And even if they find the parents, will they turn the baby over to be killed?
Kelley Armstrong writes about the most interesting town no one knows about. The cast of characters is both frightening and hilarious at the same time. This is a series. You could definitely read it as a stand-alone, however, I would suggest you just start with Book One!
I am never so happy as when I see that a new Rockton book is coming out! I honestly read this in an entire Saturday and I will definitely read the next ones!
