Louise is a single mom, a secretary, stuck in a modern-day rut. On a rare night out, she meets a man in a bar and sparks fly. Though he leaves after they kiss, she’s thrilled she finally connected with someone.
When Louise arrives at work on Monday, she meets her new boss, David. The man from the bar. The very married man from the bar…who says the kiss was a terrible mistake but who still can’t keep his eyes off Louise.
And then Louise bumps into Adele, who’s new to town and in need of a friend, but she also just happens to be married to David. David and Adele look like the picture-perfect husband and wife, but then why is David so controlling, and why is Adele so scared of him?
As Louise is drawn into David and Adele’s orbit, 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 a person might go to protect their marriage’s secrets.
I am struggling to write this review because all I really want to say is HOLY CRAP - READ THIS BOOK!!!!!! Many of you may have seen the #wtfthatending in relation to BEHIND HER EYES and it is the perfect hashtag. Sarah Pinborough manages to ensnare the reader straight away into the complicated marriage and lives of David and Adele, and like the other main character, Louise, we desperately try to put together all the pieces of the puzzle to try and make sense of the strange relationship that they have together. But nothing will prepare you for the truth. This twisted thriller portrays the dark and disturbing tones of the plot excellently throughout, and I found my heart beating faster as I got sucked into this psychological minefield and the emotions of the characters. But NOTHING prepared me for the ending. After finishing this book I struggled to forget about it and found myself thinking, what an incredibly terrifying story. BEHIND HER EYES by Sarah Pinborough is a psychological thriller like no other, and if you only read one book this year, make it this one.
