Hidden Bodies

The sequel to Netflix smash hit YOU

Book #2 of YOU series

*** Can't wait for the next series of YOU? Then don't miss this, the sequel, now a major Netflix series ***

YOU was a word of mouth bestseller around the world -- and now Joe Goldberg is back!

Joe Goldberg came to Los Angeles to start over, to forget about what happened in New York. But in a darkened room in Soho House everything suddenly changed.

She is like no one he's ever met before.

She doesn't know about his past and never can.

The problem is, hidden bodies don't always stay that way.

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 selection 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.

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

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
