About the Book: On the surface, Lara Chorley and Ruth Hull 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.
As the hunt for Vokey gathers pace, Marnie fears one of the women may have found him – and is about to pay the ultimate price.
My Review: This is the 5th book in the successful Marnie Rome series, and whilst it can be read as a stand-alone, several of the main characters do have back stories that play an integral part in the series.
I personally found Come Find Me slightly slower than the previous 4 books and less crime/police procedural. However what I did realise whilst reading this book is what a phenomenal author Sarah Hilary is. This book has incredible character depth and enables the reader to feel and breath each characters emotions, fears and actually hear their voices. (Note: I don’t actually hear voices in my head).
Come Find Me is more than a crime novel, it’s a perfect example of bringing characters to life, weaving a beautifully constructed plot, keeping the reader emotionally hooked and leaving us in tears.
