Summary, etc.:
"Only two can keep a secret if one of them is dead. David and Adele seem like the ideal pair. He's a successful psychiatrist, she is his picture-perfect wife who adores him. But why is he so controlling? And why is she keeping things hidden? As Louise, David's new secretary, is drawn into their 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.

Behind Her Eyes : A Suspenseful Psychological Thriller

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

*Starred Review* Pinborough, an accomplished author of horror, mysteries, dark fantasy, and psychological suspense, has drawn on all her gifts to tell her latest story, a masterpiece of suspense centered on a bad marriage. Readers are introduced to alternating narrators, Londoners Adele and Louise. Adele is a troubled young heiress married to successful psychologist David. Louise is David's secretary and mistress. She's also Adele's new best friend. Using the alternating points of view, short chapters, some red herrings, and a few key flashbacks, the story creates a sense of disorientation and dread that is highly satisfying. But it is with the plot, so tight and yet also intricate, that Pinborough shines. No detail or character is extraneous. Every word comes back into play and matters as the story moves to the disturbing conclusion that everyone is talking about (it even has a hashtag campaign, #WTFThatEnding). Readers will likely never see it coming. They'll think they've got it, but they don't, and that is a rare joy for readers. Give this intense book to patrons freely, but especially target those who are fatigued with the current spate of female-driven psychological suspense. It will be enough to shake things up for them.--Spratford, Becky Copyright 2016 Booklist

Library Journal


(c) Copyright Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

Pinborough's debut novel will almost inevitably be compared to recent popular mysteries, but this intriguingly opaque work with a satisfyingly shocking ending easily stands on its own. Louise, a single mom and part-time secretary, meets and kisses a man at a London bar, only to discover the next day that he's David, her new boss and a married man. Adele, his beautiful wife, is so friendly toward Louise when they bump into each other on the street that their friendship is almost inevitable. Louise initially tries to keep her distance from both of them but finds the persistence of such attractive and posh people flattering. She is disturbed and perplexed by Adele and David's marriage, but the nature of her relationships with the spouses limits what she can do or say to gain clarity. As the novel progresses, it becomes clear that David's and Adele's history, divulged through flashbacks, is the key to understanding everything that is happening in their present. The journey toward these revelations is an engrossing one, and narrators Anna Bentinck, Josie Dunn, Bea Holland, and Huw Parmenter do an excellent job of bringing the characters to life. VERDICT Recommended for all general fiction collections.-Nicole Williams, Englewood, NJ © Copyright 2017. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Publishers Weekly Review

Behind Her Eyes : A Suspenseful Psychological Thriller

Publishers Weekly


(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

British author Pinborough (Murder) effectively shifts perspectives between two complex characters in this twisty psychological thriller set in North London. Louise Barnsley is chagrined to learn that the hunky man who kissed her in a bar turns out to be her new, married boss, therapist David Martin. Louise and David agree that the flirtation would be just a onetime thing, but their interactions become more complicated when David's gorgeous wife, Adele, bumps into Louise and cultivates her friendship. Sections set in different time frames provide an ominous backdrop for the triangle, with references to dirt under fingernails and things having been done "that could not be undone." Despite her deepening bond with Adele, Louise is unable to successfully repress her attraction to David, even as he shows sides of his personality that disturb her. Pinborough will keep even veteran genre readers guessing about which members of the trio, if any, are providing trustworthy accounts of their pasts and presents.
