Alfred A. Knopf,
First English Edition.
Take one man traveling down the highway. Imagine him without mercy. Call him the Traveler and fear him. Take five girls who open the door to chaos and watch them run. Put five kilos of heroin and a gun in their luggage. Call them the Sweet Nightmares and fear them. Take a father haunted by his past who never forgets a grudge. Call him the Kingpin and don't go near him. All hurtle toward each other. Full of revenge, they have no idea that YOU are watching them. It's a late-summer night in Berlin and notorious criminal Ragnar Desche isn't too happy. He's just found his brother, Oskar, dead, frozen stiff and sitting in his home next to a swimming pool full of marijuana plants. Someone's flooded the pool and stolen a Range Rover, but what's worse is that Ragnar's huge cache of drugs is missing--and he's going to want it back. Meanwhile, nearby, a group of teenage girls are out at the movies. Thinking about boys and worrying about acne, they notice that the prettiest member of their clique is missing. She hasn't been seen for days, and the trouble she's found herself in is about to set all of the girls on a collision course with the Desche gang and drag them into a fight for their lives--a fight that might turn out to be more evenly matched than it first appears. A gritty, pulsating, psychological thriller told through the eyes of an enormous cast of characters, You is an audacious and unpredictable combination of pulp, pluck, and revenge.

|display_description||From the author of the highly praised novel "Sorry: " a new gritty, pulsating, psychological thriller centered on a cadre of teenage girls who faceoff against one of Berlin's most hardened underworld crime bosses. No one is expecting the chaos that breaks out when the notorious Berlin criminal Ragnar Desche and his henchmen discover Ragnar's brother, Oskar, dead, and a huge cache of their drugs gone missing. Least of all, a group of teenage girlfriends out together at the movies, daydreaming about boys and worrying about acne. They're missing one of their clique, and the trouble she's about to find herself in will bring all the girls face-to-face with the Desche gang and force them into a fight for their lives that every cell in their bodies should tell them they can never win. But the violent clash between these two gangs may be more evenly matched than it first appears. Written entirely in the second person and told through flashbacks that revisit events from various points of view-"You" is an audacious and shrewdly plotted novel.|
