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.


  • Chills.

  • Disgusting.

    Disgusting and poorly written. Preview should include the term psychopath.

    Hard to put down. Once you start this book won’t put it down until you find out what happens with Grace and her sister.
  • Personal review

    By sugarcookies9067
    I highly recommend you reading the trigger warnings on this book before you read it. Absolutely horrible content but the thriller that kept you wanting to know more was there. But Jack and the way he treats Grace is sickening.
  • Don’t do it

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