Publisher Description

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 crazy. Jack and Grace seem like the perfect couple. He, with looks and wealth and she with elegance and charm. Though they are newlyweds they seem to have it all. Their home is perfect, as she is a masterful gardener and cook who throws fascinating dinner parties. Part of Grace's charm was that she was a doting overseer of her special needs sister. This book was very unbelievable and therefore I had trouble connecting with the characters. I wouldn't waste time reading it. "

Quotes

  • “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
  • "[Georgia Maguire's] overall narration is calm and elegant but emotional and alarming during the horrific moments Grace experiences.

    — AudioFile
  • This debut is guaranteed to haunt you — especially if you're about to tie the knot. Jack and Grace, the couple at the center of this totally enthralling novel, are so clearly not what they seem you'll have no choice but to read and read and read until their darkest secrets are revealed. Warning: brace yourself.

    — BUSTLE
  • The writing was incredible, and the pace is quick, offering up too many chills to count...Behind Closed Doors screams: Stay single!

    — SUSPENSE MAGAZINE
  • Newlyweds Grace and Jack Angel seem to lead a perfect life in British author Paris's gripping debut, but appearances can be deceiving...Grace's terror is contagious, and Millie's impending peril creates a ticking clock that propels this claustrophobic cat-and-mouse tale toward its grisly, gratifying conclusion.

    — PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
  • “Debut-novelist Paris adroitly toggles between the recent past and the present in building the suspense of Grace’s increasingly unbearable situation, as time becomes critical and her possible solutions narrow. This is one readers won’t be able to put down.
