Publisher's Summary

In the compulsively listenable 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 10 years, this 30-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 reemerge like dark thoughts, multiplying and threatening to destroy what Joe wants most: true love. 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....

Critic Reviews

"Joe is unlikable, yet, as portrayed by narrator Santino Fontana, he's also transfixing.... Fontana is not a one-note narrator; he just knows how to stay true to character, hour after vengeful hour." (AudioFile)

Approach With Caution, All Ye Who Enter Here

At the start of this book, I had a lot of second thoughts, along the lines of "Why did I DO it? Why did I buy this sequel to a book that needed no sequel, and never should have HAD a sequel?" But only one hour in, just as in "You," I was completely hooked. Yes, it's sick, twisted, sexually explicit and violent, but that's because the reader is inside the head of a crazily smart, wickedly self-rationalizing serial killer. How could it be anything else? Let's just say that if you loved "You," you'll love (or at least become temporarily infatuated with) this book, but if you DISLIKED "You," you're making a HUGE MISTAKE. Turn back now, before it's too late. This book is everything "You" is, only MORE so. More of EVERYTHING. Along with even more laugh out loud moments and more wicked surprises.

Once again, many thanks to Audible and to Santino Fontana for the out-of-this-world, note-perfect narration. How does he DO it? He must absolutely spend WEEKS rehearsing to become this character. Highly recommended--but for mature, unshockable audiences only.

I want Caroline Kepnes for my new best friend!

Okay, I'm really beginning to worry about myself. I WANT a serial killer to evade the justice system. Joe's character works because he has many of the same thoughts about everyday life situations that we all do. The irritations of the idiots you meet everyday, but his thoughts are hilarious. Joe only works with the performance of Santino Fontana. His performance is perfection! If you can stand four letter words (an abundance of them, c-word included), and what to get into the charming mind of a serial killer, this is your book. Be sure to buy the 1st book before this one. It will set the stage.
To my new BFF-Tell me more about Joe's childhood.
