  1. What was your first impression of Beck? – N King

  2. After reading Chapter 1, what was your very first impression of Joe? – L Connolly

  3. What did you think about Joe using Beck’s credit card information to find/creep her? Have you ever worried about this happening other than someone hacking your card for fraud? – L Connolly

  4. Have you/would you ever creeped someone through their social media to find out more about them? Can you justify this as ok? – L Connolly

  5. Joe judges/gets to know people by the books they choose at the bookstore. Have you ever been judged by someone for a book you chose to read? How did it make you feel? What is anything do you think the books a person chooses to read can tell you about them? – L Connolly

  6. What do you think about Peach? – K West

  7. "YOU walk into the bookstore and you keep your hand on the door to make sure it doesn’t slam." What did you think about the way he talked in the book? – K West

  8. Did Joe read more into the first meeting with Beck? – M Donahue

  9. Let’s talk about Peach.  Were you surprised she was also infatuated with Beck? – J Gatea

  10. Can we talk about how different the book was from the series, so many differences. I kept saying wait that’s not how it happened in the series!!! – E Sine

  11.  Did reading this make you think any differently about what you post on social media? – L Connolly

  12. I found myself on the edge of my seat while readying this. What was your favorite part? – J Peggs

  13. This book was written from Joe’s POV. If this was written from Beck’s perspective, do you think the reader would have been more sympathetic toward her? Do you think the story would overall be a totally different tale? – L Connolly

  14. I kept asking myself what Joe’s obsession with Beck was about. Did he think he was in love with her or was he even capable of loving anyone? Karen Minty seemed to be better suited to his kind of craziness and she was all about him. Why do you think Joe wasn’t happy with Karen it why didn’t their relationship work. Had he try to make it work, do you think she too would have seen her demise? – L Connolly

  15. Did anyone think it was crazy how in the train station how he described if someone raped her, I mean his mind was CRAZY!!! – E Sine

  16. Let’s talk about Beck. Why do you think she was so compelled to openly posts everything about her life on social media? Do you think what she does is really any different than a lot of us? And do you think Joe would have tracked her down no matter what or do you think her constant posting made her an easy target for him?  - L Connolly

  17. I feel like this story was full of so many unlikeable characters. Was there any character that you liked? If so what did you like about them? – L Connolly

  18. WTF was Joe's thing with the typewriters?!?! – J Peggs

  19. What were your thoughts on Dr. Nicky? – L Connolly

  20. About Joe and his time punished to spend time inside the cage. Do you think that had an impact in his future behavior? – C Garcia

  21. I am the kind of person that has to say what’s on my mind to feel better. What did you think about Beck writing her feelings in emails and saving them as drafts? – L Connolly

  22. we have talked about how transparent Beck is and towards the end when Joe went in her apartment he said she had curtains. Do you think it is because she was trying to change or just because she was having an affair with "dr." Nicky? – M Donahue

  23. Why do you think Joe kept Benji in the box for so long and not just kill him in the beginning? He poisons him either way, why didn't he do it sooner? – M Peterson

  24. Were you surprised that Joe got away with everything? – L Connolly

  25. If all Joe’s victims, was there anyone you wish could have been spared? – L Connolly

  26. Will you read Hidden Bodies, the next in this series? If not, why? (I’ve heard there will be a third book too, so I’m guessing Joe gets away with a whole lot more, but I’m hoping we get some answers as to what happened in Joe’s life that started this whole shit show, unless I missed that big fact the first time around,lol) – L Connolly

  27. What was your overall star rating? What did you love? What did you hate?  - C Settle

  28. Do you think that if Joe was treated with respect and didn’t get pushed over by Beck with blowing him off at times and making him feel inferior that he would have still been a creep? I guess that if Beck was nicer could this have influenced him to be normal? – L Connolly

REVIEWS

Diane Sullivan I loved it!! It has been a while since I read it, but this is what I wrote in my review...
“This book was mesmerizing in a twisted, crazy way. I did not want Joe to draw me in, but I couldn't put it down.”

Nikole Robie Kilbert ⭐️⭐️⭐️ - it was interesting to have it be written from his thoughts/perspective. However at times I felt like it drug on and got a little boring. The end was a bit of a twist though.

Cinta García I gave it 4 stars, because it is a great book, but the number of characters to dislike was way higher than the number of characters I could like.
