Casey Duncan once killed a man and got away with it. Since then she’s become a talented police detective, tethered only to her job, her best friend, Diana, and the occasional evening with her sexy, no-strings-attached ex-con lover, Kurt. But then Diana's abusive ex finds her again, despite all Casey has done to help her disappear. And Casey’s own dark past begins to catch up with her. The two women need to run—and Diana’s heard of a place where they won’t be found, a town especially for people like them…
I've read most of Armstrong's works and I've seldom been disappointed. City of the Lost is a fabulous start to a new series. I not only enjoyed the world-building of Rockton and how it worked but the characters were very diverse and complex.
Also, the backstory of Casey and Diane really helped add depth and clarity to their present predicament. I'm not sure about anyone else, but there have been several times in my life where I have just wanted to run away from the world and this is exactly what Casey and Diane do; only their are rules. Not to mention that someone has been murdered in Rockton.
Thankfully Casey is a good detective but she may unearth more secrets than she was bargaining for. Fantastic and I can't wait to read the next in the series! I was totally immersed in this world and I cannot wait to revisit it and the characters. Loved it!
