Melissa's Review:

This Fallen Prey is book 3 in the Rockton series. I haven't read the other books in this series but didn't have an issue following the novel. It's kind of like a cross between a mystery and a thriller and I was drawn into the story fast.

This story is set in Rockton, it's an off-the-grid town with some rather interesting towns people you do not want to cross. There's none of the normal amenities we're used to there like electricity, cell phones or wifi and absolutely no contact with the outside. Casey Duncan is our leading lady and is running point as a detective in our small town. A plane lands unexpectedly and drops off a criminal to be housed there for several months, paid for by his rich step father. They aren't quite sure if Oliver Brady's allegations of being a serial killer are legitimate or not but they have to play it safe just in case. Casey and Eric try their best to build a secure place for Oliver for his stay but it seems that someone in town is trying to get him out while the other townspeople are trying to kill him. Casey and the gang have to figure out who's helping him while also trying to track him down after he escapes. There's more than meets the eye to the story and I loved that I didn't see the plot twists coming.

This Fallen Prey is a great read that makes me want to binge the series. I haven't read a KArmstrong book in awhile and I'm so glad I got to try this one! Her writing style is an attention grabber, so much so that you get sucked into the story quickly. I'm wanting to find out more about these townspeople so I know I'll be backtracking to book one soon. All in all, if you like a mystery with tons of action you'll love this book!
