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?


What the Critics Say

"Just when you think you've nailed it, Pinborough pulls the rug out from underneath you." (Sam Baker)

"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)

I have over 1000 audiobooks and rarely feel moved to write a review. If suspenseful psychological thrillers with a twist are your thing, don't miss this one. It's well written, well narrated and the story line is like no other.

- Ms "I am a professional saxophone player and addicted to audiobooks! Very handy when having to drive long distances to gigs."

Totally engrossing literally couldn't put this down all day.

I pre ordered this and it was waiting for me on my Kindle this morning. I finished it half an hour ago.. I've had it on all day. Well presented. The narrators do a marvellous job and the novel itself is truly gripping. I wasn't sure what to expect and at first thought it was going to be a gritty thriller but the fantasy/horror elements trickled in so subtly I was completely convinced by them and gripped by the characters and the story to the final jaw dropping conclusion. Well worth the purchase price.
