Description


"A dark beauty of a book, Providence kept me up at night with characters that made my heart a little bigger."--Jessica Knoll, New York Times bestselling author of Luckiest Girl Alive

A "propulsive" novel that's part love story, part detective story, and part supernatural thriller--from the acclaimed author of You, whose work Stephen King describes as "hypnotic and totally original"

Best friends in small-town New Hampshire, Jon and Chloe share a bond so intense that it borders on the mystical. But before Jon can declare his love for his soul mate, he is kidnapped, his plans for a normal life permanently dashed.

Four years later, Chloe has finally given up hope of ever seeing Jon again. Then, a few months before graduation, Jon reappears. But he is different now: bigger, stronger, and with no memory of the time he was gone. Jon wants to pick up where he and Chloe left off . . . until the horrifying instant he realizes that he possesses strange powers that pose a grave threat to everyone he cares for. Afraid of hurting Chloe, Jon runs away, embarking on a journey for answers.

Meanwhile, in Providence, Rhode Island, healthy college students and townies with no connection to one another are suddenly, inexplicably dropping dead. A troubled detective prone to unexplainable hunches, Charles "Eggs" DeBenedictus suspects there's a serial killer at work. But when he starts asking questions, Eggs is plunged into a whodunit worthy of his most outlandish obsessions.

In this dazzling new novel--and with an intense, mesmerizing voice--Caroline Kepnes makes keen and powerful observations about human connection and how love and identity can dangerously blur together.

Advance praise for Providence

"Tender, magical, and eerie . . . sure to be one of the best thrillers of the year . . . Caroline Kepnes's infinite talent shines through."--Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of The Good Girl

"There is something for every reader in these pages--thrills, chills, and a complex love story. Kepnes is a writer to add to your must-read pile."--Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of I Know a Secret
