Product description

Review

Best known for her books set in the supernatural Otherworld universe (Otherworld Secrets, etc.), bestseller Armstrong introduces homicide detective Casey Duncan, who's haunted by a violent crime she once committed, in this excellent first in a new thriller series. . . . A highly unusual set-up sets the stage for a distinctive cast of characters and a page-turning plot. -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review)

The eerie descriptions of setting and chilling character backgrounds give the tale an almost supernatural edge. -- KIRKUS REVIEWS

[A] good thriller to read by the fire on a weekend evening. The ending will be a surprise to most readers. -- THE MILLSTONE

Armstrong has always been adept at keeping us guessing, as she also does here, about the identity of the serial killer who is picking off Rocktonians in an inventively gruesome way. It's Rockton itself, though, that keeps us turning the pages. Armstrong has fun playing with genre tropes in City of the Lost, and she doesn't limit herself to the paranormal or to crime. -- THE SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

City of the Lost is one of those books that can keep you reading long after you should have been in bed, asleep. I'm looking forward to a sequel. -- THE OKLAHOMAN

[City of the Lost] may be one of my top favourite reads from Armstrong, and that's something considering I've been a fan from the early days. -- LOST IN A GREAT BOOK, blog

I am excited to see where this story is going. I'm especially curious about this mysterious town. -- BIG CITY BOOKWORM, blog

Book Description

Where would you go if you suddenly had to disappear? In her new standalone thriller, bestselling author Kelley Armstrong delivers us to Rockton, a secret town where the hunted go to hide. And where a hunter has now come to play.
