Your life at Stake
Hello and welcome to the RandomThingsTours Blog Tour for Come And Find Me by Sarah Hilary, many thanks to Anne for having me on the tour and to Headline for the fantastic Hardback copy.
A tale of loneliness and obsession, telling all of your secrets and fears to someone who can never reach you, safe in the knowledge that they are locked up tight.. until he escapes!
“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 safe behind bars.
It was just a game.”
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… Have you found her yet?”

What I Thought
Come And Find Me by Sarah Hilary gave me the creeps. A prison riot, body parts everywhere and Michael Vokey is nowhere to be seen. Many prisoners have been hospitalised and no one is talking, not even the prison guard. Is everything as black and white as it seems or is there more going on than we ever imagined, and most importantly.. where is Michael?
Very well written there is an atmosphere to this book that kept me interested and wanting to know more. I really liked Marnie Rome I think her story is fascinating. This is book five in the Marnie series and while it’s great as a stand alone I absolutely want to go back and read the first four as I enjoyed her character and the way Sarah writes. It was a great read and I think it’s perfect if you’re looking for a new crime series, not too gory but it’ll make the hairs ok the back of your neck stick up!
Many thanks again to Anne for having me on this tour, all opinions are my own and I am not paid to give them.
