In #1 New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong's latest thriller, the town of Rockton--and her fans--are in for another hair-raising adventure.The secret town of Rockton has seen some rocky times lately; understandable considering its mix of criminals and victims fleeing society for refuge within its Yukon borders.

And yet only hours later, the marshal is shot dead and the only visible suspects are the townspeople and her estranged sister, in town for just the weekend.

Watcher in the Woods Reviews
This series has an awesome concept: a town in the middle of the Yukon that is exclusively for victims of crime, witnesses, or others who need to be safe - like Witness Protection. But, well... nothing ever works out exactly to plan, does it? And, running a town in the middle of nowhere takes lots of money. So, yeah, maybe they also have a criminal or two that had enough money to buy their way in... or a serial killer or two. Like I said, nothing works out exactly to plan...
Casey is our hero and ...more
With a town like Rockton, trouble is inevitable. The towns residents are all there to escape either because they are the victim of a crime, or they're the criminal. So, when a man claiming to be a U.S. Marshall finds Rockton and says he's looking for a dangerous fugitive...it's possible. But Casey and Sheriff Dalton don't quite believe him, his presence raises more questions than answers. Then he is murdered before identifying who he is looking for. With a town full of secrets and hidden pasts, ...more
Watcher in the Woods is the latest entry in the Rockton series, and one of the best yet. While most of the books can be read alone, this and This Fallen Prey should definitely be read together; I wouldn't say they can't stand alone, but it would make for a pretty poor experience.
We begin where we left off - five or six situations that look like they're about to explode into chaos at any minute, a couple that already have, and it's Casey and Eric at the centre of it all trying to perform the worl ...more
Watcher in the Woods is the fourth book in the Rockton/Casey Duncan mystery/thriller series.
I love Kelley Armstrong and I absolutely adore this series. This book takes place approximately 2 weeks after book three.
The narrator is once again 32 year old detective Casey Duncan. These books take place in a small off the grid hidden town called Rockton (in the Yukon/North West of Canada).
Each of the books in this series have a self-contained mystery. But we get to see many of the same char ...more
Casey Duncan is back in this fourth installment of the Rockton saga – a series involving the secluded town and its people in the frozen Yukon of Canada.
Admittedly, Watcher in the Woods is part of my favorite series. It’s got a terrific cast of characters, all of whom are quite flawed or they wouldn’t be in the town of Rockton. Rockton, you see, is a secret, very secluded town for those who need to escape either because they are the worst in society or from the very worst in society. It makes for ...more
There were never such devoted sisters…
But in tight places
We think and we act as one... uh-huh
These song lyrics from White Christmas are most definitely not written about Det. Casey Duncan and her sister Dr. April Duncan. Casey has a very problematic relationship with her genius sister. However Rockton needs Dr. April Duncan, so Casey and her lover/boss/best friend Sheriff Eric Dalton sneak April into Rockton to remove a bullet from the spine of a Rockton residen ...more
Thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review.
First and foremost, I am a longtime fan of Kelley Armstrong and have read many of her book series and I will read her in the future, but I probably should have read the first three books in this series or at least book one. Fact is, I was completely lost as character after character seemed to run through the forest of this small town. I just couldn't keep my Paul's and Peter's straight. Rockton, a town wh ...more
If you haven’t read the previous books being that this is the 4th installment there are bound to be spoilers here. If you haven’t picked up this series yet, you are definitely missing out! This series is riveting, suspenseful, and full of twists and turns! I always want to set aside a chunk of time so I can read each book straight through!
Watcher in the Woods picks up right after the events of This Fallen Prey. Eric and Casey are desperately looking for a doctor to come up and treat and assess K ...more
