Come With Me - Ralph Malfi


Aaron Decker's life changes one December morning when his wife Allison is killed. Haunted by her absence-and her ghost-Aaron goes through her belongings, where he finds a receipt for a motel room in another part of the country. Piloted by grief and an increasing sense of curiosity, Aaron embarks on a journey to discover what Allison had been doing in the weeks prior to her death.

Yet Aaron is unprepared to discover the dark secrets Allison kept, the death and horror that make up the tapestry of her hidden life. And with each dark secret revealed, Aaron becomes more and more consumed by his obsession to learn the terrifying truth about the woman who had been his wife, even if it puts his own life at risk.

Favourite Quotes:


"The sensation of you simultaneously having fled from me & yet seeping into my pores invaded my brain, blurred my sight."


"As I gazed into the darkness, I sensed a faceless predator, silent & lethal as poison gas, creeping towards me across the bridge."


"A sound, disembodied, thin as tissue paper, carried on a breath of air."


Review:


When Aaron's wife is killed, he's paralysed by his grief. Yet when he brings himself to look through her belongings, he finds her chest is padlocked--when it never used to be. Breaking into the proverbial Pandora's box, Aaron quickly learns that his wife had lead a life he knew nothing about and he's determined to uncover what she was really up to before her death. I loved the way the story reads as though Aaron is talking to his wife. It makes the love he has for her feel tangible, even when he's doubting whether he really knew her at all. The story makes you consider how well you can ever really know someone, and question how we haunt ourselves with the burdens of our past. It's hard to say much about this book without giving anything away, other than it unravels perfectly and as a reader, find ourselves just as obsessed with finding out the truth as Aaron is. There are some truly creepy scenes in this book and the author has a magical way of creating all the dark and creepy vibes that I love.
