About the Book



"Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. You'd like to get to know Grace better. But it's difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are never apart. Some might call this true love. Others might ask why Grace never answers the phone. Or how she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn't work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. And why there are bars on one of the bedroom windows.



Book Synopsis



THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND USA TODAY BESTSELLING DEBUT PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER YOU CAN'T MISS!

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 is one readers won't be able to put down." --Booklist (starred review)

A can't-put-down psychological thriller." --Library Journal (starred review)

"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

"This was one of the best and most terrifying psychological thrillers I have ever read." --San Francisco Book Review

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.

"If you're hunting for a thriller to give you chills in August, look no further than this book, which is already a big hit in the U.K." --Real Simple magazine

"This debut is guaranteed to haunt you -- especially if you're about to tie the knot. Paris's thriller asks the question: 'The perfect marriage or the perfect lie?' Jack and Grace, the couple at the center of this totally enthralling novel, are so clearly not what they seem you'll have no choice but to read and read and read until their darkest secrets are revealed. Warning: brace yourself." --Bustle (10 New Thrillers to Read This Summer)

"A gripping domestic thriller...the sense of believability and terror that engulfs Behind Closed Doors doesn't waver." --The Associated Press, picked up by The Washington Post

"B.A. Paris takes the cliché about not knowing what goes on beyond closed doors to nightmarish place.... Each chapter escalates the tensions and stakes faced by Grace in the nightmare that is her new 'perfect' marriage to Jack." --Huffington Post

"Behind Closed Doors takes a classic tale to a whole new level...This was one of the best and [most] terrifying psychological thrillers I have ever read...each chapter brings you further in, to the point where you feel how Grace must feel. The desperation, the feeling that no one will believe you and yet still wanting to fight because someone you care deeply about will get hurt." --San Francisco Book Review

"Paris grabs the reader from the beginning with a powerful and electrifying tale. Behind Closed Doors, a novel sure to make one's skin crawl, also reveals no one truly knows what does go on behind closed doors."--New York Journal of Books

"This dark and twisted thriller will keep you on your toes and have you wondering exactly what goes on behind your neighbor's door."--Buzzfeed ("6 Thriller/Mystery Reads That Will Have You Sleeping With the Lights On")

"Really freaking creepy. And really good. Until the end, which was an honest gasp and imaginary pearl clutching moment. Yes, that good. Reader, if you want to read the thriller that enthralled even this jaded soul, pick up Behind Closed Doors by BA Paris.... Then draw the blinds and turn off your phone because you will not want any interruptions."-- LitHub ("18 Books You Should Read This August")

"Debut-novelist Paris adroitly toggles between the recent past and the present in building the suspense of Grace's increasingly unbearable situation, as time becomes critical and her possible solutions narrow. This is one readers won't be able to put down." --Booklist (starred review)

"Making her smash debut, Paris [keeps] the suspense level high. In the same vein as Gone Girl or Girl on the Train, this is a can't-put-down psychological thriller." --Library Journal (starred review)

"Newlyweds Grace and Jack Angel seem to lead a perfect life in British author Paris's gripping debut, but appearances can be deceiving...Grace's terror is contagious, and Millie's impending peril creates a ticking clock that propels this claustrophobic cat-and-mouse tale toward its grisly, gratifying conclusion." --Publishers Weekly

"A frighteningly cool portrait of a serious sadist, Behind Closed Doors is a gripping, claustrophobia-inducing thriller... Read at the risk of running from every handsome British lawyer who crosses your path." --Romantic Times

"This book proves that looks are most definitely deceiving...Disturbing, to say the least, readers will definitely be shaken as the story commences and they become immediately absorbed. The writing was incredible, and the pace is quick, offering up too many chills to count...Behind Closed Doors screams: 'Stay single!'" --Suspense Magazine

"B.A. Paris's debut, Behind Closed Doors, is a chilling confirmation of the adage that no one ever really knows what transpires in other people's private lives.... Paris has created one of the most heinous villains in recent memory, upon whom even the most pacifist of readers might wish torturous revenge. They'll likely remain behind their own closed doors as they race through this thriller to see how, or if, the nightmare ends." --Shelf Awareness

This book just has to be huge in 2016. I flew through it in two breathless sittings. Quite simply: astounding. --S.J.I. Holliday, author of Black Wood

This outstanding debut novel will leave you breathless. --Bella

This one is 2016's answer to Gone Girl. Nuff said. --Women's Health UK

It took me just an afternoon to read this book and by the end, my heart was pounding. If you like fast and frantic stories, you'll love this. --The Sun

Behind Closed Doors is an intriguing, sharply gripping debut thriller. --Lovereading.co.uk

Just got back into reading and this is the second book that I decided to pick up… not really a fan! I feel as though it’s extremely slow, I’m almost 200 pages in and just can’t get into this one. I have no idea where the story is going at this point. It just seems very repetitive and I lose interest quickly. Which is a bummer because I’ve seen so many people really liked this one, it’s just not for me. I am determined to finish it though!

I bought this book in person a couple years ago. It was (and still is) in great condition. The book itself is so interesting and unique, I couldn't put it down! If the summary interests you even a smidge, I recommend taking the dive and purchasing the book because it is worth it!
