Gritty, dark, and disturbing! Find Me is a complex, creepy thriller that takes you into the life of the tormented, grief-stricken Jar as he embarks on a relentless and harrowing journey to discover, once and for all, the true fate of his girlfriend Rosa who allegedly committed suicide five years prior. The prose is intense and tight. The characters are skeptical, focused, resilient, and in some cases depraved. And the plot, told from multiple perspectives, quickly unravels as it spins you through an intricately-crafted story filled with unforeseen twists, well-timed surprises, mind games, espionage, murder, perversion, evil and pure wickedness. Find Me is a unique, riveting tale with explicit sexual imagery and demoralization that will not only entertain, but will also confound, shock, disturb, and even frighten you.

"Find Me" was not what I expected. The first 30-40% reads like bereavement- it is 5 years after Jar's girlfriend's suicide, and he can't help but see her everywhere, even when he realizes soon after that she is not actually there. Throughout the story of his current life, we get tidbits of Rosa (the girlfriend) through her diary, but the entries are presented out of order. We soon learn this is because her diary was found on her aunt's computer and each entry is encrypted separately. This means we read them the same way Jar does- out of order. The story is pretty slow to get going and once it does, it happens a little too quickly. I didn't like the pacing overall, and the twists were a little too out there. I found it overall a little hard to follow and hard to really get into. It ended up being a very dark story, not for the feint of heart. There is also, as a warning, torture of humans and animals in the book. On the plus side, it was a genuinely surprising story and not at all what I expected going into it. I had a hard time getting into it at the start and didn't feel so engaged with the main characters. I'm giving the stars for "it's OK" because I think it has an audience, but I just had a really hard time getting into it. It did wrap up nicely in the end though, I will say. Please note that I received a copy from Harlequin. All opinions are my own.
