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.

    Very good, but a bit more disturbing than I had anticipated.
  • Absolutely LOVED IT

    By Lala Terminaator
    I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! And i had to remind myself its just a book and not real life and that the pages cant hear me haha! It is so full of suspense the way the author flips between past and present! And I love that it gets straight to the plot twist within the first two chapters! Its very suspenseful i literally finished this book in a day and a half only because I have kids lol or else i would have read it for 24 hours straight
  • Great!

    Good! Read it in one day, chilling and suspenseful and very believable but I wish the author would have expanded a little more on the ending, it was abrupt and not super satisfying. Worth the read though still.
  • Best Thriller Yet

    Kind of a slow start but I promise you won’t regret reading it! Especially during the second half, I couldn’t put the book down. Just make it through the first few chapters and you’ll want to keep reading.
  • Meh
