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.

Entertaining police procedural...

Kelley Armstrong has written a very entertaining series. The stories take place in the town of Rockton. It's a place where people pay to go when they need to disappear.
In this book the protagonist (Casey) and her boyfriend/boss (Eric) who is also the sheriff are chasing a serial killer/kidnapper. He takes young women and keeps them imprisoned in caves in the Yukon until they die. He's had a strange upbringing.
Basically these books are police procedurals, they just take place in an unusual setting. The town has it's own governing body and people are only allowed to stay as long as the town council approves. There are no elections, only appointments. Very interesting since most of the people were quite unsavory in their past lives. Everyone coming into this town takes on a new name and persona. The characters are fleshed out and believable.
Therese Plummer does an outstanding job narrating.
This series is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. The next book Is The Fallen Prey which is my next listen.

Unputdownable

I enjoyed A Darkness Absolute very, very much. I can't wait for the sequel! The setting is particularly interesting.
