Come with MeRonald Malfi
A masterful, heart-palpitating novel of small-town horror and psychological dread from a Bram Stoker nominee.
Aaron Decker's life changes one December morning when his wife Allison is killed. After the funeral, sorting through her belongings, he finds newspaper articles and photographs of dead teenage girls. Handwritten notes from interviews his wife had been conducting in secret for years. And a handgun. His wife had been tracking a killer.
Consumed by grief, Aaron becomes obsessed with completing her work. He begins retracing her steps, visiting the towns Allison visited and another piece of his wife's dark history is revealed, until she no longer resembles the woman he married.
Then the trail leads Aaron to his wife's hometown, an industrial town so polluted that ash rains from the sky, the rivers are poisoned, and an abandoned factory hides an unsettling truth. Tortured by all the secrets Allison kept, Aaron discovers that the reason for her investigation is much more personal and terrifying than he ever could have imagined.
