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.


  • Don’t do it

    By Mommyd1234abdc
    Really a terrible story- don’t let the sample draw you in. Poorly written, immature and cruel.
  • Engaging

  • Hard to put down

    By dlmallon421
    I do feel as though a little more could have been done with the evil main character to really make it more intense. Great book!
  • Good but not the best

    By cassbuggg
    I enjoyed this book but some chapters felt repetitive. The plot was entertaining don’t get me wrong it just felt like we were missing something. Fun read never the less.
  • Wonderfully written

    By SaSaffari
    Perfectly paced, no unnecessary flowery language, and a page turner- hands down one of my favorite thrillers
  • DV trigger warning.

    By Alexacsanko13
    I only got about 150 pages in and honestly couldn’t do it. Well written but So much abuse and overall just so crazy. I did look up a summary though because I wanted some karma it didn’t disappoint I’ll give It that
  • Jaw dropped.

  • Like some forgettable Lifetime movie

    By joemccar
    I tried to get into this and got halfway through but the situation is so outrageous and unbelievable that I couldn’t keep going, with characters acting in ways people never would in real life. The story feels like a made-for-TV Lifetime movie with a frustratingly outdated male-female dynamic.
  • Loved it!

  • Interesting plot line!

    I read in just a couple of days. It wasn’t my personal preference in storyline but well written.
