#BookReview: This Fallen Prey by Kelley Armstrong @KelleyArmstrong @StMartinsPress @MinotaurBooks #Rockton

34953116 (1)My Review…

This is the third book in the Casey Duncan series and I thought it was the best. It takes place in Rockton, the secret town for people who need to hide. Casey is the town’s detective and her boyfriend Eric, is the town sheriff.

The pace is quick from the start as the city council has negotiated for a dangerous and conniving criminal named Oliver Brady. They were offered $1 million to keep him safe and imprisoned for 6 months. Casey and Eric are caught off guard as a helicopter has delivered him and taken off before they could refuse delivery. Rockton isn’t really equipped to house a criminal like Oliver.

Oliver starts scheming and may have someone to close for comfort aiding him. What crimes was he accused of will Casey and Eric be able to keep him in jail for 6 months?

I enjoyed this action filled story which had several heart pounding moments. The setting and the woods people make it very creepy and unpredictable. I rated it a 4 stars!


Book Description…

When Casey Duncan first arrived at Rockton, the off-the-grid, isolated community built as a haven for people running from their pasts, she had no idea what to expect. There are no cell phones, no internet, no mail, and no way of getting in or out without the town council’s approval. She certainly didn’t expect to become the town homicide detective. But, the very last thing she expected was for the council to drop a dangerous criminal into their midst without a plan to keep him imprisoned. And she never thought that she’d have to be responsible for him.

The longer Oliver Brady stays in town, the more people seem to die around him. When evidence begins piling up that someone inside Rockton is working as his accomplice, Casey races to figure out who exactly Brady is and what crimes he’s truly responsible for committing.




  1. This ones certainly sounds like the perfect read Holly. I like the idea of a secret, secluded town and the new arrival. Glad that you enjoyed this. Definitely will look up this series!
