Publisher's Summary

In the next riveting thriller from number-one New York Times best-selling author Kelley Armstrong, the paranoia increases - along with the stakes - as the town of Rockton tries to solve the latest mystery at their door.

Detective Casey Duncan has noticed fewer and fewer residents coming in to the hidden town of Rockton, and no extensions being granted. Her boyfriend, Sheriff Eric Dalton, presumes it’s the natural flux of things, but Casey’s not so sure. It seems like something bigger is happening in the small town they call home.

When an injured hiker stumbles from the woods, someone who seems to have come to the Yukon for a wilderness vacation but instead is now fighting for her life, it’s all hands on deck. What - or who attacked this woman, and why?

With the woman unconscious, and no leads, Casey and Eric don’t know where the threat is coming from. Plus, the residents of their deeply secretive town are uneasy with this stranger in their midst. Everyone in Rockton wants this mystery solved - and fast.

Really entertaining series!

Stranger in Town

Is the sixth book in the Casey Duncan series. I’m sure it could be enjoyable as a standalone however I would suggest listening to the series in order for background. There is so much character history that would be missed that the reader wouldn’t get many of the details referenced. This series takes a little different perspective of the cop in a small town mystery.
In this book some old questions involving the “Hostiles” are solved. Where they originated and how they got to be the way they are. It all begins with the murder of a group of tourists from Denmark.
And it looks like Casey and Dalton may be starting their own town. The council hasn’t been sending any new people for a while. The question is does the council plan to shut this town down and begin anew in a new location with all new people. Casey and Dalton don’t plan to wait to find out.
Therese Plummer does a great job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Another good one!

I found myself wanting to slow down not even an hour into the story just to make it last longer.

I love these books and this one is just as good and fast paced as the rest. I hope she continues this storyline!

Never Disappoints

This is my absolute favorite series and only continues to get better and better. All characters major and minor are so expertly done. Each time I finish a book I cannot wait for the new installment. Bravo Kelley Armstrong

Fantastic Series

I'm really hoping there will be more to follow. I've binge listened to all of them, and can't wait to hear/ read what happens in Rockton next. Each mystery held my complete attention, and had me trying to solve them right along with the detective. The narration was perfect! Highly recommend giving these a chance to any fan of mystery and thriller.

10 to 1

Every thought has at least 10 sentences as well as way to much internal dialog. Difficult to follow! Maybe less bodies and more character development! I like the premise of the story but I feel it's a missed opportunity 😕

WELL WORTH THE WAIT!

I have anxiously awaited this release. And it doesn't disappoint. I almost feels like it's the end of the series but I sincerely hope not. To say that Therese Plummer did a wonderful job and that she's one of my FAVORITE narrators would just be repeating myself but... I love Therese!

Keep the books coming.

This is a good series that I hope continues. Some of the questions have been answered, there are more that I would be interested in finding out.
