“This is a novel I would read and reread and recommend to others. Fans of vigilante and desperado
revenge will delight in this horror story.” — Horror Tree.
Rebecca Crow’s four-year-old son is dead, and her husband is missing.
Divers find her husband’s car at the bottom of a canal with their son’s small, lifeless body, inside.
The police have no suspects and nothing to go on but a passing mention of a man driving a van.
Guilt and grief cloud Rebecca’s thoughts as she stumbles towards her only mission: Revenge.
James Porter knows exactly what happened to them, but he’ll do anything to keep it a secret.
James didn’t plan to kill Rebecca’s son, but he’s not too broken up about it, either. There are more
important things for him to worry about. He needs money, and his increasing appetite for murder is
catching the attention of a nosy detective.

Reading Come Join the Murder was quite a wild experience! Holly Rae Garcia eloquently communicates Rebecca and James’ despair as they navigate their struggles through the story. She clearly describes Rebecca’s dark descent as she seeks out her son’s killer. No longer having a family, Rebecca is left to pick up the pieces of her life while piecing together what happened that fateful night on the bridge. In her quest to seek out answers, she loses touch with reality. Garcia also details James’ complicated predicament. The need to protect his loved ones, paired with his knowledge of that fateful evening, causes him to careen down an inhumane path of his own.
Come Join the Murder was a difficult read at times, as the story continually draws back to the night her son Ollie was killed. It highlights Holly Rae Garcia’s stunning ability to describe the horror of a child being murdered, and the drastic lengths a parent might go through to seek justice. Her writing sets up the stage of the night in question, slowly drawing you in before the unspeakable horrors unravel. Rebecca’s quest for truth (and her gradual descent into madness), will keep you engaged until the shocking ending!
