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.

The secret town of Rockton has seen some rocky times lately; understandable considering its mix of criminals and victims fleeing 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 less than the year that she’s lived there. Yet even she didn’t think it would be possible for an outsider to find and cause trouble in the town she’s come to call home.

When a US Marshal shows up in town demanding the release of one of the residents, Casey and her boyfriend, Sheriff Dalton, are skeptical. But then, only hours later, the marshal is shot dead and the only visible suspects are the townspeople and her estranged sister, in town for just the weekend. It’s up to Casey to figure out who murdered the marshal, and why they would kill to keep him quiet.

A STELLAR FOLLOW-UP TO A BESTSELLER: This Fallen Prey was Kelley’s adult debut on the Doubleday Canada list, and it also marked a depature for her as a writer, taking her work into thriller territory. This new book continues that new style, and is a terrific follow-up to the national bestseller.

HOMEGROWN STAR AUTHOR: Kelley is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of close to 40 books. Few authors can boast that, and few publishers can boast having an author with that kind of resume. And—in case we’ve forgotten—she’s Canadian!

NEW READERS WELCOME: Despite the book being set in Rockton (the setting of City of the Lost, A Darkness Absolute and This Fallen Prey) and centered on the character of Casey Duncan, these books need not be read in order. They can easily stand alone—perfect for new readers!

DIE-HARD FANS: Kelley has a terrifically loyal following that comes out for every major signing and event (usually with copies of all her books in tow!), and they will be completely satisfied with this new thriller.

GREAT PARTNERS: As with This Fallen Prey, we’re publishing this new book with St. Martin’s (US) and Minotaur (UK).

KELLEY ARMSTRONG is the internationally bestselling author of City of the Lost, A Darkness Absolute, This Fallen Prey and other books. She lives in rural Ontario.

Praise for This Fallen Prey:

“Kelley Armstrong’s solid Casey Duncan series, set in Yukon, is turning into one of the best new finds of the decade. Armstrong has always been a particular talent, but Duncan and the Yukon are definitely her inspiration. This Fallen Prey is the best Rockton novel so far…. Slick plotting and good characters are hallmarks of this clever series.” —The Globe and Mail

“Armstrong delivers surprising twists and keeps readers guessing about who the next victim might be.” —Publishers Weekly

“Armstrong continues to expand the highly original Rockton world.” —Kirkus Reviews
