Publisher Description

"[Georgia Maguire's] overall narration is calm and elegant but emotional and alarming during the horrific moments Grace experiences." - AudioFile Magazine on Behind Closed Doors. Named One of the Most Anticipated Thriller Novels Of 2017 by Bustle! THE NEWEST PROPULSIVE AUDIOBOOK FROM THE AUTHOR OF NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY INSTANT BESTSELLER, BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. If you can’t trust yourself, who can you trust? Cass is having a hard time since the night she saw the car in the woods, on the winding rural road, in the middle of a downpour, with the woman sitting inside—the woman who was killed. She’s been trying to put the crime out of her mind; what could she have done, really? It’s a dangerous road to be on in the middle of a storm. Her husband would be furious if he knew she’d broken her promise not to take that shortcut home. And she probably would only have been hurt herself if she’d stopped. But since then, she’s been forgetting every little thing: where she left the car, if she took her pills, the alarm code, why she ordered a pram when she doesn’t have a baby. The only thing she can’t forget is that woman, the woman she might have saved, and the terrible nagging guilt. Or the silent calls she’s receiving, or the feeling that someone’s watching her… You won't be able to hit pause on B. A. Paris's The Breakdown, the next chilling audiobook from the bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors.
