Synopsis:

A shocking discovery.
An island wrapped in secrets.

A tiny island community is stunned by the discovery of a long-buried body.

For Stella Harvey the news is doubly shocking. The body has been found in the garden of her childhood home – the home her family fled without explanation twenty-five years ago.

Now, questioning her past and desperate to unearth the truth, Stella returns to the isolated island. But she quickly finds that the community she left isn’t as welcoming as she remembers – and that people in it will go to any length to protect their secrets.

One thing rings true…
You can’t bury the truth forever.


Review:

Ominous, suspenseful, and engrossing!

Come Back For Me is an atmospheric, tortuous, character-driven thriller that takes us into the life of Stella Harvey, a young woman who returns to the island her family hastily left one stormy night when she was a child after a body buried for 25 years is discovered just outside the home she grew up in.

The writing is taut and intense. The characters are troubled, consumed, and multilayered. And the plot using a past/present, back-and-forth style unravels and intertwines into a compelling tale full of deception, manipulation, familial drama, swirling emotions, mayhem, violence, and murder.

Overall, Come Back For Me is a well crafted, dark, sophisticated, cunning tale by Perks that highlights the intricate, complex, and dynamic bonds that can exist between family and friends and reminds us that skeletons often find their way to the surface no matter how well they are hidden or buried.
