Additionally, the walls are covered with grotesque paintings of Jack’s former clients, battered and bruised.

As he closes it behind me, I can’t help thinking it’s a shame he’s such a sadistic bastard, because he has wonderful manners. There’s no way any of his plans are going to last because even though his friends are stupid, they aren’t dumb.We join Esther on the sofa and Diane exclaims in pleasure as Jack pours the champagne into tall glasses. Some of their characteristics were believable, with their flaws they felt relatable in some way or another and they were also very engaging. Esther picks Grace up at the airport, and to Grace’s surprise, helps her come up with a plausible cover story for the murder. Jack had been very clever in that respect; he had left her some water, but not quite enough to last her two weeks until we got home.

I assume they are intelligent people, so I don't know why they decided to keep Grace, or why they didn't move sooner. And we are forced to believe that after pulling off a perfect performance in front of their friends, Grace wouldn't be taken even a little bit seriously if she were to stand up and calmly announce she was leaving Jack because she was scared of him and he was manipulating her to do things against her will. However, she still finds it comforting to be able to socialize from time to time, even if it might not lead to anything. There are also tiny sugar peas, which I plunged into boiling water just before taking the beef from the oven.She waits until Jack has carved the beef Wellington and served it with a gratin of potatoes, and carrots lightly glazed with honey. One could argue that sociopaths and sadists exist in real life and don’t have any other motives than “I like hurting people,” but that doesn’t fly in fiction. And when will she get any time to herself and an opportunity to even do anything remotely like changing her life situation. My eyes fall on the box of expensive chocolates she has just taken out of her bag and I feel a flicker of excitement. more I had my suspicions about a friend's marriage, my imagination went into overspin and Behind Closed Doors was the result!

The story actually gives up its secrets almost immediately - in fact, most of you probably figured it out after reading the blurb, right?

She had recently learnt to waltz and, as she danced, she stretched her arms out in front of her, as if she was dancing with someone. If you can keep your imagination under control, the author doesn't provide any horrendous details that will leave you scarred. She looks around the table triumphantly and when everyone avoids her eye I can't help feeling sorry for her. I find myself smiling at the memory and wish desperately that life was still as simple, still as innocent. with friends, so he’s forced to be social with his wife, who has to pretend to love him lest people find out she’s married to an abusive idiot.

Regardless, Behind Closed Doors isn’t a book I recommend unless you plan on taking a six hour plane flight. Yet Paris undercuts her own suspense by allowing Jack to, at great length, recount his coming-to-villainy back story. It might have been better to have simply 'killed them off' in a freak car accident or cruise disaster, rather than having to reference them intermittently and ever so slightly unbelievably - convenient that they emigrated to New Zealand without much of a glance over their shoulder for the welfare of their eldest daughter at the very least. Grace’s thoughts and actions come quick and naturally, focusing only on what needs to be focused on.It’d had good reviews and, to be fair, it might be that there were some surprises I didn’t get to (I’d given up at the point I mention above). Although, seeing how things worked out for her on the few occasions when she did try to get away did help to convince me. the fun of this book is not in figuring anything out, but in watching it unfold in its absolutely relentless pacing; one of those white-knuckle, edge of your seat reads where the story is broken up between the past and the present, as the time between those two periods narrows, bringing the two stories together for the dramatic explosion.
