Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The weekly event is meant to showcase eagerly anticipated upcoming releases…and to spread the word! This week I’m excited about:
Publisher: Random House Canada
Anticipated Release Date: February 7, 2017
When experienced homicide detective Casey Duncan first moved to the secret town of Rockton, she expected a safe haven for people like her, people running from their past misdeeds and past lives.She knew living in Rockton meant living off-the-grid completely: no cell phones, no Internet, no mail, very little electricity, and no way of getting in or out without the town council’s approval. What she didn’t expect is that Rockton comes with its own set of secrets and dangers.
Now, in A Darkness Absolute, Casey and her fellow Rockton sheriff’s deputy Will chase a cabin-fevered resident into the woods, where they are stranded in a blizzard. Taking shelter in a cave, they discover a former resident who’s been held captive for over a year. When the bodies of two other women turn up, Casey and her colleagues must find out if it’s an outsider behind the killings or if the answer is more complicated than that…before another victim goes missing.
The first book in the Casey Duncan series, CITY OF THE LOST, is one of my favourite books of 2016 so naturally I’m dying to read the sequel. A DARKNESS ABSOLUTE promises to be just as gripping as the series opener, delving more deeply into both the mysteries of Rockton and the complexities of Casey’s friendship with fellow police officer Will.
I’m anxiously counting the days until A DARKNESS ABSOLUTE is released, and I plan to read it the second it hits shelves. Here’s hoping this is another fantastic thriller from Canadian author Kelley Armstrong!
