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.

    Excellent read. Read it in one weekend. A different thriller than what has been out there lately. The author did a great job of pulling you into the main character's hell on earth.
  • Great book

    Very choppy and hard to keep going. But wanted to see how Grace was going to get away.

  • It was okay...

    By Steph0924
    The book started off interesting and then it just got a little out of hand. Never been a fan of books like this and my view still hasn't changed. This book was too dark, twisted and unrealistic to me. Everything was predictable towards the end. Good try though. I really don't understand the hype.

    Boring. Dragged on. Ending didn't jive.

    I'm not one to usually buy a mystery, but this book had me glued. I read thru the night instead of sleeping & was late to work because I couldn't stop without knowing what would happen next. This book will have you glued until the very end!!
