Can’t-Wait Wednesday: This Fallen Prey by Kelley Armstrong

I used to take part in Waiting on Wednesday hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. I’ve decided to begin participating again, but with Can’t-Wait Wednesday hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings since the Breaking the Spine blog is no longer active.

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that aren’t released yet. I love finding out about books which will publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog.

I’m looking forward to . . .

the third book in the Casey Duncan series by Kelley Armstrong.

This Fallen Prey by Kelley Armstrong

This Fallen Prey by Kelley Armstrong

Series: Casey Duncan #3

Published by Minotaur Books

Publishing date: February 6, 2018

Genre: Mystery, Police Procedural

400 pages

Synopsis: 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. 


I read the first book in this in September and I loved it. I’m going to read the next book–A Darkness Absolute–this month. The setting in northern Canada is unique and made this mystery and police procedural very atmospheric.
