Come and Find Me

UK Publisher: Headline

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.


‘Rome is as pleasingly astute as ever, and it is good to see the continued travails of her supporting cast. Hilary has created a series that I hope will run and run.’ – The Observer, Alison Flood (Thriller of the month)

‘Time after time Sarah Hilary never fails to amaze readers with her brilliant storylines and taut prose.  Come and Find Me is the next book of hers to be released in the DI Marnie Rome series.  The series gets better and better and if you have not read any then you should. This thriller deploys an intricate and faultless plot structure, which kept me guessing right up to the end. Highly recommended’ – Shots

‘COME AND FIND ME is a tense and chilling thriller that moves along at breakneck speed’ – Irish Independent

‘The one thing you can guarantee with Hilary’s books is that nothing is ever quite what it seems and COME AND FIND ME is no exception. Her writing is both strong and deep, and she has an enviable knack of creating interesting and engaging characters. This is a series where the supporting cast are every bit as interesting as the protagonists, and it makes such a refreshing change to read a police procedural that manages to overturn stereotypes every time’ – Linda Wilson, Crime Review

‘Sarah Hilary just gets better and better. She is so clever, the way she deepens and complicates the Marnie Rome story and psyche. Her ear is exceptional too – the different narrative voices captured so cleverly in the third person – so assured and beguiling. I am lost in admiration at her imagination and skill.’ – Sabine Durrant

‘Dark, razor sharp and emotionally complex, Hilary is at the top of her game’ – Lucy Atkins

‘Edgy, clever, deeply original and a shocker of an ending. I loved it.’ – Jane Casey

‘I love Sarah Hilary’s Marnie Rome series – stylish, sharp as a scalpel and exceptionally well written.” – Melanie McGrath

‘Sarah Hilary has utterly excelled herself with this one. Gloriously twisty plot (I go it SO wrong!) and my god she writes so beautifully.’ – Michelle Davies

‘Intelligent, nail-biting, twisty, dark, thought-provoking … just amazing!’ – Karen Sullivan

‘Marnie Rome fans, you are in for a treat. Sarah Hilary’s latest is tense, terrifying and twisted.’ – Paula Hawkins

‘This book has incredible character depth and enables the reader to feel and breath each characters emotions, fears and actually hear their voices. COME AND 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.’ – CompulsiveReaders

‘The writing is divine, having a quietly impacting resonance, the plotting is taut and somewhat terrifying, your sense of the people and the places gaining momentum with each passing chapter. It is addictive, unpredictable and criminally clever, there’s not that many writers writing at this level out there. Highly Recommended.’ – Liz Loves Books

‘The author is a master of suspense – it is almost frightening how good she is at injecting dark, twisted suspicions and changes of direction. Although gruesome in places the prose remains emotive and sensuous. Smells and tastes permeate each tightly constructed scene. A crime thriller that dives straight into the action and maintains a roller coaster tension through to the unanticipated denouement. It will appeal to fans of the genre but contains sufficient depth and consideration to satisfy any reader. A fiercely assured addition to an unflinching series.’ – Neverimitate

‘As ever, Hilary writes brilliantly, taking us inside the heads of her characters, shedding light into the darkest corners of the darkest minds and ratcheting up the tension with every chapter. I read this book in two sittings, breathless with admiration. Crime fiction doesn’t come any better than this.’ – Paul Burston’s blog

‘Sarah Hilary is writing crime novels – there is no question about that – but she is also systematically examining the corrupt institutions and various societal ills that give rise to the cycle of violence plaguing humanity. These novels are never less than entertaining, but are also educationally edifying without becoming pedantic or pontifical. If more people were reading the works of this woman, the world might just be better for it.’ – BOLO Books

‘Simply superb, Come and Find Me is one hell of a clever, twisting, powerful story. I already know that [it] will be one of my favourite reads of the year, and I think this is Sarah Hilary’s best yet, I simply can’t recommend this series highly enough.’ – Liz Robinson, Lovereading

‘Sarah’s writing is pitch-perfect. This is not a police procedural series Hilary is writing but deep psychological thrillers where the tortured minds of the killer, the victims and the detectives take centre stage. What happens; the murders, the acts of violence, are not gratuitous and shocking for the sake of telling a story, they’re actions born out of the characters created, and that is what makes Sarah Hilary an exemplary writer. COME AND FIND ME is a twisty, twisted thriller, and has an ending that will floor you and leave you begging for more.’ – CrimeSquad

‘Brilliantly and tightly plotted, filled with exceptionally well-drawn characters and capable of wringing out deeply buried emotions from the reader. For my money, it is the most tense and powerful in the series so far and a triumph of Hilary’s writing skill.’ – Live and Deadly

‘If you haven’t picked up a DI Marnie Rome book yet then you’re in for a huge treat. The latest book in the series is an absolute roller coaster of a police procedural, with twists and turns aplenty and a pace that doesn’t let up. Sarah Hilary’s characters are the real heroes of this thriller though: they’re so well-written that you’ll find yourself truly invested in them.’ – Dead Good Books

‘This is crime fiction with a level of complexity that makes for really satisfying reading.’ – Cleopatra Loves Books

‘COME AND FIND ME is more than a whodunnit, it is a whole exploration of relationships and obsessions. It probes around inside your head, forcing you to question and to contemplate; it crawls under your skin and leaves you wanting more!’ – chapterinmylife

‘COME AND FIND ME is spectacular. The writing is of the highest order, as it always is, but what makes this novel stand out is the sheer quality of its clever plot and the way in which we watch characters unravel before our eyes. Nothing is certain. There is a wonderful elusiveness to the story, a real mystery to it, and the result is an extremely sophisticated and rewarding novel.’ – For winter nights – A bookish blog

‘COME AND FIND ME is a novel full of the twists and tension that we’ve come to expect from Sarah Hilary. It’s a fascinating storyline, written with her incomparable style and care.’ –

‘This is one book you do not want to miss’ – Jen Med’s Book Reviews

‘What a joy it is to encounter such psychologically astute crime fiction that does not recoil from the hard realities of modern Britain.’ – Bob Cornwell, CrimeTime

‘This is a compelling and addictive read, pulling the punches from the very first page. I can’t recommend this series high enough. It’s everything I want in crime fiction – dark, powerful, emotional, gripping and filled with surprises from beginning to end.’ – Victoria Goldman, Off-the-Shelf Books
