Review by Marlene Engel
Jack is a handsome, successful attorney who fights for the rights of those involved in domestic violence. Grace spends a lot of time traveling as a buyer for Harrods. But things change drastically shortly after they marry. While on their honeymoon, Grace learns who the real Jack is. The one with a violent, criminal past, the one who’s controlling and abusive, and the one who is plotting to kill her special needs sister.
To the outside world they appear to be the perfect couple: living in a beautiful house, hosting nice dinner parties. While around friends Jack always plays the role of doting husband; always at Grace’s side and even agreeing to allow Grace’s sister to come live with them after graduation. But her friends start getting concerned when she’s constantly turning down lunch invites. Of course Jack has the perfectly scripted answer: she’s anxious about having her sister stay with them. But they aren’t buying it.
Since being married she no longer works, is unreachable (as she has no cell phone or email address) and seems to hole up in her house with no contact with the outside world. What they once thought was a storybook marriage, they are now beginning to question …
Behind Closed Doors is a heart pounding, psychological thriller debut novel by B.A. Paris. To think that things like this happen in real life is terrifying, but the author writes it in a way that captivates you. With complex characters and a hauntingly addictive storyline, this is a book that will be talked about for a long time to come.
