Come and Find Me by Sarah Hilary is a classic crime fiction with a well thought-through story and an unpredictable twist.
You were lonely, that’s why you wrote me the first letter. Knowing I was dangerous. Knowing what I’d done. You were lonely and I was safely behind bars. It was just a game.
On the surface, Lara and Ruth have nothing in common, other than their infatuation with Michael Vokey. Each is writing to a sadistic inmate, sharing her secrets, whispering her worst fears, craving his attention.
DI Marnie Rome understands obsession. She’s finding it hard to give up her own addiction to a dangerous man: her foster brother, Stephen Keele. She wasn’t able to save her parents from Stephen. She lives with that guilt every day.
But now Michael Vokey has escaped, and as the hunt to find him gathers pace, Marnie fears one of the women may know his whereabouts – and is about to pay the ultimate price.
It really is an impressive read which you’ll be dragged into from page 1
Hilary really just rolled with her idea and props to her, because half way through I predicted what was going to happen, but then the shocks didn’t stop there. Come and Find Me was v v v v v v clever – just the way it all slotted together was amazing.
Now I haven’t read the other books in the DI Rome series, but it does read as if there are spoilers to an ongoing story with the protagonist – which means I’ll definitely be going and picking up the previous books.
It is written wonderfully – Hilary’s really nailed it. The way it makes you feel, as well as how she depicts the characters and what is going on, it really is an impressive read which you’ll be dragged into from page 1. Impossible to put down and filled all my needs for a crime fiction.
Chilling and tense, Come and Find Me is a wonderful read for all you crime lovers out there.
