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.

    I love books where women stand up for other women. I also like it when karma wins.

    I was sad it ended. Narrator is very natural. Plot was surprising with no obvious foreshadowing. I just downloaded her second book. I’m hoping it’s as good as this was!

    I was hooked from the beginning and wanted to keep driving just so I could listen. What a manipulative control freak, even to coming up with his name! A true statement on the fact that no one knows what a person is like until they live with them. I loved the thought-out plans created by the main character (that continually failed) and, especially, the twist at the end.

    Having read The Breakdown, by the same author I was excited to begin this audiobook. I could not stop once I has started! Audiobooks are my treat for when I commute but I continued to listen to this one, long in to the night because it was so full of suspense . A gripping novel .

    I expected some sort of abuse when I read the summary of the book, but it was nothing like I imagined. The story was well written and well told. Having been through something similar (but not quite to the same degree) I hated some of the characters and wished some would have done things differently. I found myself anxious and relieved and anxious again while listening. Well planned out and executed. Looking forward to the author's next endeavor.

    Jack, Jack, jack, what an evil monster of a man. He's killed his mother and set his father up to go to jail for the murder, changes his name only to inflict more hatm to others. A man who has to control his wife's every move, to what and when she eats to what she wears. He loves to see people in fear and is looking forward to torturing Grace's sister who is disabled with Down syndrome. A crazy book, but good.....the revenge is so sweet. #book10of2019 #bookworm #whatsnext
