Overview
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"
Obsessed. Jessica Knoll, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Luckiest Girl Alive"
Delicious and insane...The plot may be twisty and scintillating, but its Kepnes' wit and style that keep you coming back. Lena Dunham
Hypnotic and scary. Stephen King
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 neighbor. 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..."

Joe Goldberg, the narrator of Kepness dark, quirky sequel to 2014s You, is a serial killer who otherwise leads a normal life as a New York City bookstore manager. Joes relationship with M.F.A. student Guinevere Beck, whom he pursued in You, ended badly, and hes devastated when his current girlfriend, Amy Kendell Adam, mysteriously disappears. By tracing Amys computer search history, Joe discovers that she has registered for an acting class in Hollywood. He vows to go there, find Amy, and make her pay for deserting him. Once in Hollywood, he continues his murder spree, all the while hoping to find Amy. In his search, he meets many well-drawn characters, including an L.A. policeman and a rich, drug-addicted playboy. Meanwhile, Joe undergoes a surprising personal transformation, and remarkably, the author convinces the reader to empathize with her killer protagonist. Agent: Jennifer Rudolph Walsh, WME Entertainment. (Feb.)
