Inhaltsangabe

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.

Gripping, scary

This book gripped me, and I listened to it in one go -- more or less. If you're a fan of the TV series 'criminal minds' you'll probably enjoy it, although it isn't as gory as the TV series. There's a lot of suspense, though, the atmosphere is oppressive and scary, and the whole situation seems so very hopeless.
I've seen other readers compare it to Gone Girl and Girl on the Train. I can't do that, because I have read neither. I don't think all these comparisons to other books are fair anyway, except for giving a potential reader a hint of the direction the book takes.

This book is fast paced, scary, and I couldn't switch it off. Georgia Maguire as the narrator was an excellent choice, she created the exact atmosphere which compelled me to listen to this book within just one day.

Eine spannende Geschichte sehr gut gesprochen

Ich fand das Hörbuch sehr spannend und auch etwas gruselig. Es war sehr gut gesprochen. Hammer, wie gute Fassade aufrecht erhalten wurde und an was alles gedacht wurde.

spannende Story, zwischendurch etwas langatmig

generell spannende Geschichte, aber meiner Meinung nach wurde ihre aussichtslose Situation etwas lange beschrieben zwischendurch.
