Publisher's Summary

When experienced homicide detective Casey Duncan first moved to the secret town of Rockton, she expected a safe haven for people like her, people running from their past misdeeds and past lives. She knew living in Rockton meant living off the grid completely: no cell phones, no Internet, no mail, very little electricity, and no way of getting in or out without the town council's approval. What she didn't expect is that Rockton comes with its own set of secrets and dangers. Now, in A Darkness Absolute, Casey and her fellow Rockton sheriff's deputy Will chase a cabin-fevered resident into the woods, where they are stranded in a blizzard. Taking shelter in a cave, they discover a former resident who's been held captive for over a year. When the bodies of two other women turn up, Casey and her colleagues must find out if it's an outsider behind the killings or if the answer is more complicated than that...before another victim goes missing.
Casey Duncan returns in another heart-racing thriller from number-one New York Times best-selling author Kelley Armstrong.

Narrator is obviously not Canadian

While for the narrator is mostly good, there were a couple of glaring issues. Firstly, a toque is not a toke - that's something totally different. Every time she said that it was like nails on the blackboard for me. The other glaring travesty was her pronunciation of Newfoundland dog. WTF. The breed is named after one of our provinces. It is not New Finland. I comes from "New found land" not "Finland"!!!! That was even more aggravating than the calling our hat a toke. Please tell her to get it right before the next book comes out!

A good follow up.

While we were thinking only the citizens of Rockton were civilized we were not quite right. It takes Casey Duncan with her phenomenon detective skills and Dalton to find others and what happened to Dalton’s real parents.

Casey and Diana are still working on repairing their friendship but it is not that easy. For each of their encounter Casey is doing a double think to figure out does Diana have a nefarious plan in the works.

Casey’s independence is going to either kill Dalton, their relationship or someone else. It does not help that when he leaves her somewhere she ends up somewhere else. Casey’s action illustrate other lives are worth more and she selfishly sacrifices herself to the frustration of Dalton . So, there are adverse weather conditions, which means for Casey, she will not stay put and for Dalton makes tracking difficult.

Nichole the resident who has been missing for a year, has been found and lost again. There is still the question of who kidnapped her. Who is pulling the strings of the residents? When there is a finite number of people in a town and none of them cannot be trusted, it is a crap shoot that you can find the killer. The killer can serve you your morning coffee or that person who has your back.

There is always the council and what will they do and who is planted in the town by them. I did not give it a 5 star because I got tired of the Casey and Dalton protecting each other.
