Providence

(2018)
A novel by

 
 
Stephen King for the avocado toast generation: dark, twisted, hilarious and unmissable.

In 2008, 13-year-old Jon Bronson disappears on his morning walk to school. After even his parents give him up for dead, only his best friend, Chloe, remains certain that he would come back.

Four years later, Jon returns with no memory of anything after the day he disappeared. But something's different about him. His presence seems to cause spontaneous nosebleeds in those around him. When he hugs his father, the older man passes out. The family dog disappears.

Jon's only clue to his missing four years is the battered book left behind by the man he believes abducted him. And he and Chloe are determined to figure out what happened to Jon...before his presence does more than cause a couple of bloody noses. They're sure they can solve the mystery and save Jon.

But this is a Caroline Kepnes novel. You know that the worst is yet to come.

With her trademark flair, precision eye for detail and acerbic wit, Caroline Kepnes will bring the suspense thriller to a whole new level with Providence - a story of loss, horror, redemption and the love that binds us all.

This unabridged audio version is read by MacLeod Andrews, Emily Rankin and Paul Michael.

Praise for this book

"Feels entirely fresh and defies genre in the best possible way . . . romantic, thrilling, and thoughtful in its examination of power, love, and goodness. The characters of Providence will haunt readers long after they’ve finished reading, and they’ll be better for it." - Andrea Dunlop

"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

"Tender, magical, and eerie . . . sure to be one of the best thrillers of the year . . . Caroline Kepnes’s infinite talent shines through." - Mary Kubica

"An artist, a mutated vigilante, a charming hunter, a sickly detective, and a literary lunatic: Caroline Kepnes brings them together in this propulsive and original story. It kept me up at night, scared and thinking." - E Lockhart

"Caroline Kepnes, in her unique style, has stretched and reimagined what a paranormal thriller can be. Propulsive, creepy, and entertaining, Providence is a modern mystery from a gifted storyteller." - Iain Reid

"Providence is an inventive, dark fairy tale/love story for the twenty-first century, a compulsively readable novel about the complexity of love, relationships, and the monsters we allow ourselves to become. Plus, I have a new favorite character, named Eggs." - Paul Tremblay
