City of the Lost (Casey Duncan #1) by Kelley Armstrong (*****)

City of the Lost (Casey Duncan, #1)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…

REVIEW: *****

Loved it!  It caught me in the first chapter and did not let go the rest of the book. I really enjoyed this one. The characters were interesting, the story line solid with lots of little twists and surprises.

I almost did not read this one. I know the author is known for her paranormal romance stuff and I was not wanting to read that right now. But the blurb sounded interesting and not in the paranormal genre so it intrigued me. I am so glad I chose to read this. Sucks having to wait another year for the next in this series. I really want to read more about these characters. Definitely recommend this one!
