Cavallaro's Cavalcade of Carnage
According to a brief glance at Malfi's website, I have read around half of his novels. Furthermore, I have never reviewed a Malfi book, and I probably should have by now. He doesn't get the credit he deserves. When readers discuss great coming-of-age novels, December Park seems to be rarely mentioned. Also, 2011's Floating Staircase is a superb ghost story that has been lost in the shuffle of "Hey! Read this! It's good because it's NEW!"

What I'm getting at is: Come With Me is more high-quality fiction from a consistently good writer. It's part mystery, part ghost story (?), and part family drama. There is a very deliberate slow-burn pace that really vibes with the subject matter. And he really nails the ending.

The hype is real!

Grade: A
