# City of The Lost # Kelley Armstrong

City of the Lost by Kelley Armstrong Review!

Casey Duncan once killed a man and got away with it. But that's not why she's on the run. Her best friend's ex has found Diana again, despite all Casey has done to protect her. And Diana has decided the only way she'll ever be safe is if she finds the mythical town she's heard of where people like her can go to hide. Turns out the town really exists, and will take Diana, but only if Casey, a talented young police detective, comes too.

Imagine a hidden town, isolated in the Yukon wilderness, where everyone is pretending to be someone they're not. Even good people can get up to some very bad stuff. The laconic town sheriff dispenses his own frontier justice, but he's more accustomed to sobering up drunks in the horse trough, than attempting to solve the series of brutal murders that has rocked the town. As much as he hates it, he needs Casey. As for Casey, coming to the far North may have started out as a sacrifice she was willing to make for her best friend. But maybe, just maybe, she needs Rockton as much as the town needs her.

I have never read anything by Kelley Armstrong in the past, so this book was a new experience for me. I am so glad I took the time to read this novel, because I absolutely loved it!!

Casey forgets about everything and immediately drops what she was doing to go and help her best friend Diana. This time, what Diana needs is slightly more complex. This time, Casey needs to leave her life and move to a town that doesn't exist. This town is so far off the grid that people have no idea it's even there.

Casey arrives in town, just in time for her to solve a series of murders that took place. The town is very small, so with so few suspects to place blame on, what will happen?
I loved the suspense. I don't read that many mysteries, which is a shame, since this book reminded me how much I love them. I was completely clueless about who partook in the murders until the very end when the killers were revealed.

I  thoroughly recommend reading this novel! It will take you to another world and let you experience everything you wish you could in real life. A killer mystery, a story of friendship, a boss relationship with his worker and a backstory of a strong lead female!
4/5 Stars!
