Beck is everything Joe has ever wanted: she's gorgeous, tough, razor-smart, and sexy beyond his wildest dreams. Joe needs to have her, and he'll stop at nothing to do so. As he begins to insinuate himself into her life - her friendships, her email, her phone - she can’t resist her feelings for a guy who seems custom-made for her. So when her boyfriend, Benji, mysteriously disappears, Beck and Joe fall into a tumultuous affair. But there's more to Beck than her oh-so-perfect façade.
"Wow. This. Book."
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.
"Approach With Caution, All Ye Who Enter Here"
Enjoy this free interview between Caroline Kepnes and Santino Fontana, the author and narrator of You and Hidden Bodies.
"Caroline Kepnes' new book Hidden Bodies..."
When aspiring writer Guinevere Beck strides into the bookstore where Joe works, he is instantly smitten. Beck is everything Joe has ever wanted: tough, razor-smart, and sexier than his wildest dreams. He'd kill to have her. Soon Beck can't resist her feelings for a guy who seems custom made for her. When a string of macabre incidents tears her world apart, there is only one person she can turn to. But there's more to Joe than Beck realizes and much more to Beck than her perfect facade.
"Absolutely loved the portrayal of obssession"
Joe 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.
Als die Studentin Guinevere Beck die Buchhandlung betritt, in der Joe arbeitet, ist er augenblicklich hingerissen von ihr. Sie ist all das, was er will: wunderschön, tough, clever und so sexy. Zum Glück bezahlt sie ihren Einkauf mit ihrer Kreditkarte, denn so kann Joe tun, was jeder normale Mensch in dieser Situation tun würde: Er googelt ihren Namen. Doch dabei bleibt es nicht. Schon bald ist Joe besessen von Beck, beginnt sie zu stalken.
