The instant New York Times and USA Today bestselling debut psychological thriller you can't miss!

The perfect marriage? Or the perfect lie?

"A hair-raising debut, both unsettling and addictive...A chilling thriller that will keep you reading long into the night." Mary Kubica, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Good Girl

"This debut is guaranteed to haunt you...Warning: brace yourself." Bustle (10 New Thrillers to Read This Summer)

"The sense of believably and terror that engulfs Behind Closed Doors doesn't waver." The Associated Press, picked up by The Washington Post

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He's a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You're hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You'd like to get to know Grace better.

But it's difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are inseparable.

Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone. Or why she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn't work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. Or why she never seems to take anything with her when she leaves the house, not even a pen. Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows.

Some might wonder what's really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed.

From bestselling author B. A. Paris comes the gripping thriller and international phenomenon Behind Closed Doors.

This book was great. Couldn't put it down. ( )
  cdeboard | May 29, 2024 |
I went to a Super Bowl party this year and a commercial came on TV for a popular action movie. The commerical was nothing but quick-cut shots of car chases, fires, explosions, helicopters, shooting, etc. For some reason we all just sat in silence watching this mess. At the commercial's conclusion our hostess, originally from the UK, broke the quiet by saying in her posh accent, "Well that was just a big bunch of rubbish!"

That's how I feel about this book.

Ridiculous plot, unbelieveable characters, and predictable ending. Need I say more?

On the flip slide, the audio narration was good and I sped through it. I knew *what* was going to happen, but didn't know exactly *how*, so I did have the desire to see how that played out (though it didn't make sense given what happened in the rest of the book).

was one of the many people who were extremely disappointed that the realize date of this gripping, amazing novel got pushed back until August. So when I saw it on Netgalley I was beyond thrilled. First off as always thank you to everyone involved of the production of this book for my advanced copy. To the author you have a lifetime fan in me I loved this so much I read it all in one sitting. Now a little bit about the story.
Jack and Grace live in a beautiful home. He makes a lot of money as an attorney and has never lost a case. He's handsome and he's well-mannered. He also takes very good care of his wife. Jack never leaves Grace's side. It isn't possible for anyone to talk to her on her own, because they are inseparable. Are Jack and Grace really such a close couple or is something else going on?

Behind Closed Doors is gripping from the start. Grace thinks she's met the perfect man. Jack is kind, he takes her on fancy dates and he wants to spend time with her sister Millie. He also doesn't mind that Millie will move in with them as soon as she turns eighteen. Millie has Down syndrome. She's very sweet and means the world to Grace. Jack knows that and certainly uses this information to his advantage. It's clear straight away that something is terribly wrong...

Grace is such a likable person which made me care about her story from the start. She's loving, she's gentle and she's fiercely protective of her sister. Millie is such a happy person, I liked her very much. The story worked really well for me and I got so caught up in it that I forgot everything and everyone around me. Behind Closed Doors is creepy and it's fabulously constructed with alternations between the past and the present. As they come closer together the story becomes more and more horrible. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.

Behind Closed Doors is absolutely awful and suffocating, but it's fascinating as well. I read this book in one sitting, because I couldn't put it down. It's one of those stories that will stay with you for a very long time. If you're looking for a good, captivating read, get this book. I'm sure you're going to love it. A 10 star read all the way yes I said TEN not FIVE.
