Summary

From the author of the highly acclaimed You ["Hypnotic and scary." (Stephen King)] comes an equally terrifying and addictive new thriller.

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.

Compelling

If you could sum up Hidden Bodies in three words, what would they be?

Dark, compelling, unputdownable!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hidden Bodies?

When Forty turns the tables on Joe - but there's really too many to mention. The dialogue is spot on and occasionally laugh out loud.

Have you listened to any of Santino Fontana’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Love his narration...he's an excellent 'Joe.'

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh in the same way the show 'Dexter' does.

Any additional comments?

Very well written books - but you must read 'You' first. I was actually rooting for Joe at the end of 'Hidden Bodies' and I hope there' s a sequel. The narration is excellent, I listened to both 'You' and 'Hidden Bodies' within a week! Only thing I'd warn about is both books have quite a few 'sex' scenes which some people may not like and a couple of uses of the 'C*** word.

unprepared

Unprepared for this book, not knowing what will happen it surprised me. It all started off good with the main character. Sort of a "Hey nice to meet you" which rapidly switches to "you silly goose" & "omg what!?". Then eventually you slip into a love hate relationship and although you sometimes hate him you don't want to put this book down.

It's a good story, love the performance and great suspense!

Not as good as 'You' but still a terrific story.

Loads if twists and turns, and a few shocking moments. It's really good and well worth a listen/read though I personally thought 'You' had the edge.

Far better than expected

After listening to You and finding it excellent I couldn’t wait to listen to this. The character of Joe is brilliant and that is why this is so good. If you liked the first book you must listen to this.

An absolute treat.

More please! Please!! Superb book, narrated to perfection. Absolutely loved it. The feeling I got when I finished this was akin to the feeling I got when I finished Breaking Bad. Life will be incomplete with Joe. Loved it as much as the first book. Both highly recommended.

Excellent narration!

I read 'you' - and listened to 'hidden bodies' the narration in hidden bodies really brings joe to life- can't wait for the next instalment!
