Four stars

Behind Closed Doors Cover


The perfect marriage? Or the perfect lie?
The debut psychological thriller you can’t miss!

‘This outstanding debut novel will leave you breathless’

‘Brilliant, chilling, scary and unputdownable.’
-Lesley Pearse, bestselling author of Without a Trace

‘This one is 2016’s answer to Gone Girl. Nuff said.’
-Women’s Health UK

‘You’ll love this’
-The Sun

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. You might not want to like them, but you do.
You’d like to get to know Grace better.
But it’s difficult, because you realise Jack and Grace are never apart.
Some might call this true love. Others might ask why Grace never answers the phone. Or how she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. And why there are bars on one of the bedroom windows.

‘Behind Closed Doors gives us a glimpse into the realities of a ‘perfect marriage’, with addictive and heart pounding moments guaranteed to have you looking at your friends and neighbours differently.’
-Margaret Madden, Bleach House Library

“The gripping debut thriller everyone is raving about”

Those are the words that had me one clicking. I was positive I was going to love this book.

However, as much as I wanted to love this story I found it to be lacking in content at times.

I kept reading in the hopes of something to happen and when eventually something did happen I found it to be very predictable.

It has an interesting storyline. Featuring a marriage based on psychological terror. It is certainly unique and I particularly enjoyed the scenes with Millie, who suffers from Down Syndrome, yet is very perceptive and clever.

However loathsome a character Jack is I still had to admire his intellect, he scarily knows what he is doing and I had to admire Grace’s strength even when faced against all odds.

If you’re looking for something original that offers hair raising moments, then Behind Closed Doors is the book for you.
