THE RIVETING SEQUEL TO THE HIT BOOK YOU, NOW A NETFLIX SERIES

“Kepnes hits the mark, cuts deep, and twists the knife.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Delicious and insane...The plot may be twisty and scintillating, but its Kepnes’s wit and style that keep you coming back.” —Lena Dunham

“Hypnotic and scary.” —Stephen King

“Obsessed.” —Jessica Knoll, New York Times bestselling author of Luckiest Girl Alive

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

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: 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…

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Joe is unlikable, yet, as portrayed by narrator Santino Fontana, he’s also transfixing. Fontana spends most of this lengthy revenge narrative with a hardened voice that is sharp and forceful—even during lovemaking scenes. Normally this would wear on the ear, but for Joe, it sounds precisely right. Listeners get some respite from Joe, as the story is littered with other characters, all having their own quirks of accent and temperament. These provide ample evidence that Fontana is not a one-note narrator; he just knows how to stay true to character, hour after vengeful hour. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Hypnotic and scary.” Stephen King, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“This beautifully crafted thriller…will give you chills.” People
“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
“A fantastically creepy thriller…the kind of book you put your life on hold for.” Glamour
“Both a tense story of a monster and a fascinating psychological study, the book dares you to empathize with a killer while keeping you guessing as to what will happen next.” Barnes&Noble.com
