Publisher's description
David and Adele seem like the ideal pair. He's a successful psychiatrist, she is his picture-perfect wife who adores him. But why is he so controlling? And why is she keeping things hidden?

As Louise, David's new secretary, is drawn into their world, she uncovers more puzzling questions than answers. The only thing that is crystal clear is that something in this marriage is very, very wrong. But Louise can't guess how wrong – and how far someone might go to protect their marriage's secrets.

My verdict
Behind Her Eyes is SO hard to review as I don't want to give anything away. All I will say is that this is a very dark, disturbing and addictive read, with a hint of 'something very different'...

This psychological thriller feels a bit creepy from the start, focusing on a not-so-conventional marriage with secrets. Sarah Pinborough draws you in with a well-engineered plot, believable characters and lots of unease. And then, just as you think you have it worked out, she gets you with a killer ending - one that slams you into stunned silence followed by lots of swearing.

The hashtag for this book is #WTFthatending. I challenge anyone to guess the ending of this book! Certainly a book to remember.

I received an Advance Reader Copy.
