City of the Lost (Rockton, #1)
Let me just say...WOW! It's been a long time since I had to stay up all night to finish a book. Kelley Armstrong is best known for her urban fantasy stories but this debut novel in the suspense thriller genre proves she can write that as well if not better. The author skillfully introduces her first person narrator, a damaged female homicide cop, in the familiar cold urban setting usually found in the thriller genre. Then Armstrong throws in her first twist- events force our cop to quickly relocate to a town buried in the remote forests of the far north, run by a shadowy Council, where people with questionable character and mysterious pasts come to hide. Toss in escalating threats from feral 'settlers' hovering in the surrounding woods and gruesome serial murders, and you've got DELIVERANCE meets THE FIRM. An excellent, nail-biting read. I can't wait to pick up the next in this series.
