Description:

Don’t trust this book.
Don’t trust this story.
Don’t trust yourself.

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 Thoughts & Review:

When I first saw this book mentioned on social media I was instantly intrigued, how could I not be when I saw those three short sentences that describe the book?  That coupled with the clever hashtag #WTFThatEnding, meant I really wanted to read this to see what the hype was about.

This book is a psychological thriller and then some, it’s clever, sinister, gripping and utterly spectacular!  I won’t insult you by saying anything about the plot, this is one you will have to discover for yourself.  Suffice to say that when you see tweets with #WTFThatEnding you really know that there’s something downright gob smacking lurking in the shadows.
I was so exceptionally pleased that other bloggers had been sent a copy of this beauty so that I could “aaaargh where are you in the book?!” and bounce ideas off of them.  I admit, at about half way through I was completely on the wrong track, but a fellow blogger was happy to allow me to put the ideas out there, and we chatted about what we thought might happen……then when I finished the book….you’ve guessed it, the next message I sent was “WTFThatEnding?!” I sat, utterly rooted to the spot, completely and utterly stumped.  Not believing what I’d read, I did re-read the ending a couple of times to make certain.

This is a creepy thriller, masterfully plotted with an ending that shoots for maximum impact.  Pinborough throws her readers down the rabbit hole into a frenzied world of the unexpected and keeps them captive whilst weaving a twisted and mesmerising tale.

Too often you see “X is the thriller of the year” or “Y is the new Z” but in this case, Pinborough really has earned the accolade that Behind Her Eyes could well be the thriller of 2017.

Preorder your copy of Behind Her Eyes here (this is one book you will definitely want to get a copy of asap!)
