95%: Audio Book | Narrator: Therese Plummer
05%: Book came in the mail because the audiobook from the library couldn’t stay on my physical shelf so I can read it over and over and over and over again.
Kelley Armstrong does it again.
How does she write pure gold all the time? Does she have Rumplestiltskin enslaved to her will?
Casey is a character you relate to. Not because she kills someone (hopefully) but because she lives with the guilt. It was a few years back but it did change her, but it doesn’t control her. She has a career she loves, a guy on the side, a friend she trust and she does lead a pretty happy life. She has feelings and she reacts like a normal person. She isn’t stone she isn’t too emotional… She’s someone you’re going to love reading with.
Casey was attacked. After a series of unfortunate events, she ends up killing someone. And no one but her friend Diana knows about it.
Diana, Casey’s closest and dearest friend, is on the run from her abusive-crazy lawyer ex-husband who just seems to REALLY need Diana in his life so he can literally just hit someone and control them. Casey, being a homicide detective threatens his freedom with a file on a girl he had previously beaten. The terms? Leave Diana alone forever.
He does this. And then he doesn’t.
Casey’s past catches up with her.
Diana mentions she heard of this town where people go to hide for a while and to get away from the problems that they got themselves mixed in with. Casey agrees to leave everything to go with Diana for her protection.
Only the town needs Casey more than she needs it. See, there’s this murderer out and about and killing people and the two cop-like guys, Dalton and Anders, are in need of a – you guessed it – a homicide detective. But the more Casey digs into the town the more she unravels the town and its inhabitants, the more dangerous it becomes for her physically and emotionally.
Oh and there’s something about cannibals and body parts and things. Because it isn’t a Kelley Armstrong book without a little gore to drag you deeper into her story.
The only reason I didn’t finish this with audiobook was because the book came in the mail and the audiobook was in my car. Aka I was lazy and the book was closer. PLUMMER WAS AMAZING and I will be looking into more things that she has narrated. I hung on her every word. She pulls you in even more than you already were by the story itself.
