Description

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.
Every season in Rockton seems to bring a new challenge. At least that's what Detective Casey Duncan has felt since she decided to call this place home. Between all the secretive residents, the sometimes-hostile settlers outside, and the surrounding wilderness, there's always something to worry about.
While on a much needed camping vacation with her boyfriend, Sheriff Eric Dalton, Casey hears a baby crying in the woods. The sound leads them to a tragic scene: a woman buried under the snow, murdered, a baby still alive in her arms.
A town that doesn't let anyone in under the age of eighteen, Rockton must take care of its youngest resident yet while solving another murder and finding out where the baby came from - and whether she's better off where she is.
#1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong again delivers an engaging, tense thriller set in perhaps the most interesting town in all of contemporary crime fiction.

        December 23, 2019
        Early in bestseller Armstrong’s emotionally charged fifth novel set in the Yukon (after 2019’s Watcher in the Woods) Det. Casey Duncan and her boyfriend, Sheriff Eric Dalton, are on vacation from their jobs in Rockton—an off-grid sanctuary for those looking to disappear—when they find a woman shot dead in the snow. Clutched to her chest is a newborn, dehydrated but alive. Casey and Dalton bring both to Rockton, where they determine that the victim isn’t the child’s birth mother. Rockton doesn’t allow minors, but its sundry misfits agree to babysit while Casey and Dalton search for answers. Solving the murder should help identify the infant’s biological family, but the duo must tread carefully; not all of Rockton’s neighbors are good or sane, and the woman might have been warranted in taking the child. The tension rises as Casey and Dalton explore settlements about which Armstrong has previously only hinted, and they confront their own complicated feelings regarding parenthood. Fans of thrillers, small-town mysteries, and classic PI novels will be well pleased. Agent: Helen Heller, Helen Heller Agency (Canada).

        December 1, 2019
        In Armstrong's latest in her series set in the remote town of Rockton (where people go to forget their past), Detective Casey Duncan is taking a little vacation with Eric Dalton, her boyfriend and the sheriff of Rockton, when she discovers a murdered woman whose body holds her still-living baby. Who is the dead woman? Was someone in Rockton responsible for her death? The fifth Rockton novel (following Watcher in the Woods, 2019) builds on the previous four, opening up the town a little more, revealing more of its mysteries and more of its residents' hidden secrets. The prolific Armstrong is an adept storyteller (she's writes horror and fantasy as well as mysteries, for both adults and teens) who makes the rather out-there idea of a small, protected community full of people with things to hide seem not only plausible but entirely believable. Fans of the author who have not yet checked out the Rockton novels should do so, pronto.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2019, American Library Association.)

Now the entire town, which doesn't allow in those under 18, must figure out how to care for the babe. Fifth in the popular series.
