The story follows Joe a book store manager and his journey in love with Beck, an aspiring writer, but here’s the twist: our main character Joe is actually a serial killer.
I’m not really into crime psychological thrillers but something just told me to give this a shot (to be fair I didn’t look at the synopsis or genre/category this series was placed under, it was recommended to me by Netflix and I assumed it was a romance movie seeing the cover of the two main characters in a book store).
