TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2015 /CNW/ - In her new thriller, City of the Lost, New York Times and Globe and Mail bestselling author Kelley Armstrong delivers us to Rockton, a secret little town in the far north where the hunted go to hide.
First released as a six-part e-serial with Kobo in July, City of the Lost has become Kobo's bestselling serial property of all time. Readers were hooked on Casey's story immediately and now the hardcover publication will give a whole new audience the chance to visit Rockton.
Casey Duncan once killed a man and got away with it. Since then she's become a talented police detective, tethered only to her job, her best friend, Diana, and the occasional evening with her sexy, no-strings-attached ex-con lover, Kurt. But then Diana's abusive ex finds her again, despite all Casey has done to help her disappear. And Casey's own dark past begins to catch up with her. The two women need to run—and Diana's heard of a place where they won't be found.
Imagine a hidden town, isolated in the Yukon wilderness, where everyone is pretending to be someone they're not. Even good people can get up to some very bad stuff. The laconic town sheriff dispenses his own frontier justice, but he's more accustomed to sobering up drunks in the horse trough, than attempting to solve the series of brutal murders that has rocked the town. As much as he hates it, he needs Casey. As for Casey, coming to the far North may have started out as a sacrifice she was willing to make for her best friend. But maybe, just maybe, she needs Rockton as much as the town needs her.
