Exploring the dichotomy between one's inner and outer self is central to Behind Her Eyes. When a vulnerable woman is drawn into the lives of an enigmatic couple, she finds it hard to differentiate between reality and what truly lies beneath a seemingly perfect exterior.
Don't Trust This Book
Don't Trust These People
Don't Trust Yourself
And whatever you do, DON'T give away that ending....
Since her husband walked out, Louise has made her son her world, supporting them both with her part-time job. But all that changes when she meets...
Young, successful and charming - Louise cannot believe a man like him would look at her twice, let alone be attracted to her. But that all comes to a grinding halt when she meets his wife...
Beautiful, elegant and sweet - Louise's new friend seems perfect in every way. As she becomes obsessed by this flawless couple, entangled in the intricate web of their marriage, they each in turn reach out to her.
But only when she gets to know them both does she begin to see the cracks.... Is David really the man she thought she knew, and is Adele as vulnerable as she appears?
Just what terrible secrets are they both hiding, and how far will they go to keep them?

Critic reviews

"Sarah Pinborough is a literary chameleon of astonishing power and grace." (Neil Gaiman)
"A novel that will burrow into your brain before blowing your mind. The kind of book you'll want to discuss with everyone you know." (Mark Edwards)
"Just when you think you've nailed it, Pinborough pulls the rug out from underneath you." (Sam Baker)
"Lean and mean, dark and disturbing, this is the kind of novel that takes over your life. Sarah Pinborough slays." (Joe Hill)
"Masterful writing that crackles with tension, before detonating that ending." (Angela Clarke)
"If Behind Her Eyes isn't the thriller of the year, there is no justice. Hugely entertaining, utterly compelling and the ending will leave you reeling. (Sarah Lotz)
"Twisty and twisted. Jealousy, lies, betrayal, guilt, toxic spouses, madness. They're all in here." (Adam Nevill)

Good until it gets too far fetched.

Really enjoyed the book at first and the mystery but then it goes off down a far fetched and a little bit ridiculous route and it loses all credibility for me. Shame it didn't keep to a more real concept.

I should have listened to Jenni's review. This book is painful to listen to and is quite repetitive. A complete waste of my time, I only listened to the end a) because I was promised 'A brilliant ending' which may have made up for the main story and b) because I had wasted my credit purchasing it. Don't waste your credits or more importantly your time!

What a mind bugler!

If you like trying to figure out the ending of books, but like the twist in the end. This book is for you. The "I did not expect that" is what you'll have with this one. Enjoy, I did!

That was a waste of points....

I cannot get past Chapter 10 and am now deleting this totally boring book from my device. I cannot figure out that there is a story here and am falling asleep listening to it. Sorry!
