Hidden Bodies (C.Kepnes) PB

Hidden Bodies (C.Kepnes) PB

In the compulsively readable follow-up to her widely acclaimed debut novel, You, Caroline Kepnes weaves a tale that Booklist calls “the love child of Holden Caulfield and Patrick Bateman.”

Hidden Bodies marks the return of a voice that Stephen King described as original and hypnotic, and through the divisive and charmingly sociopathic character of Joe Goldberg, Kepnes satirizes and dissects our culture, blending suspense with scathing wit.

Joe Goldberg is no stranger to hiding bodies. In the past ten years, this thirty-something has buried four of them, collateral damage in his quest for love. Now he’s heading west to Los Angeles, the city of second chances, determined to put his past behind him.

In Hollywood, Joe blends in effortlessly with the other young upstarts. He eats guac, works in a bookstore, and flirts with a journalist neighbour. But while others seem fixated on their own reflections, Joe can’t stop looking over his shoulder. The problem with hidden bodies is that they don’t always stay that way. They re-emerge, like dark thoughts, multiplying and threatening to destroy what Joe wants most: truelove. And when he finds it in a darkened room in Soho House, he’s more desperate than ever to keep his secrets buried. He doesn’t want to hurt his new girlfriend he wants to be with her forever. But if she ever finds out what he’s done, he may not have a choice...

Industry Reviews
Readers of Kepnes´ 2014 brilliant, hipster-thriller debut, You, will be familiar with NYC book store manager Joe, a disconcertingly hot stalker and serial killer. Now Joe´s back, taking his misanthropic ways to LA, where he meets a ѕelection of fakes and fame-seekers. Like before, the story is told entirely from Joe´s extremely persuasive point of view, a device that leaves you massively conflicted. -- Glamour Magazine on the 10 best novels of 2016
Delicious and insane as its predecessor....The plot may be twisty and scintillating, but its Kepnes´ wit and style that keep you coming back. -- Lena Dunham
YOU is superb. So funny, apart from anything else, and properly clever. It is: different, hot. -- Sophie Hannah, New York Times bestselling author of The Monogram Murders and The Other Woman´s House
You will need this book. Caroline Kepnes just became my new favorite writer. -- Colleen Hoover, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
Obsessed. -- Jessica Knoll, New York Times bestselling author
I can´t remember the last time I felt so guilty for enjoying a book so much * S Magazine *
There´s something deeply insidious about the storytelling of Caroline Kepnes. As satire of a self-absorbed society, Kepnes hits the mark, cuts deep, and twists the knife. * Entertainment Weekly *
So brilliant, we reckon it´s invented its own genre: hipster thriller, anyone? * Glamour *
