Behind Closed Doors: The gripping international and Sunday Times bestselling psychological crime thriller for fans of Lucy Clarke
About this deal
Sometimes what you see on the outside can be very deceptive, never ever judge a book by it's cover, always read the fine print in the middle. Although proving that my client hadn't inflicted the wounds herself, given that she had a penchant for self-harm, made it a little more difficult. Although I questioned some of Grace's decisions, it felt like one of those situations where you couldn't possibly know how you would react unless it was happening to you.
This is a chilling, claustrophobic, psychological thriller, that has had a huge emotional impact on me - and credit to B. Heavner isn’t exactly mollified when Tempe, aided by retired police detective Skinny Slidell and a host of experts, puts a name to the dead man. In the basement, Grace finds the puppy that Jack had gotten for her before the wedding dead from dehydration.Grace uses it to her advantage, luring him into her room for a nightly chat over a glass of whisky as they discuss the case. If you are an Author and you’d like me to consider reading and reviewing your book please just message me. Certainly worth a read although, sure; unlike Jack Angel's twisted idea of perfection, this book is as imperfect as the imperfections it sets out to explore. and there ain't a thing in the world wrong with that, except when people like women's health start getting a little loosey goosey with their suggestions and ruining the reputation of readers' advisory for everybody.
Another sweltering month in Charlotte, another boatload of mysteries past and present for overworked, overstressed forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. She is in a special school where she lives but she's supposed to go and live with Jack and Grace after she turns eighteen. Adam, Diane and all other peripheral characters are similarly one-dimensional; never questioning anything and always just in awe of Jack - never wondering about him at 40 with no sign of wife, girlfriend or partner; or the absolute perfectness of his marriage to Grace; or the fact that Grace never leaves the house or Jack's side. Later that night, at the hotel, Grace takes a bath and when she emerges from the bathroom, she finds that Jack is gone. Esther, however, stops on the way for a closer look at Fireflies and, when Jack joins her rather than urge her to sit down, I breathe a sigh of relief that the soufflés are nowhere near ready.But it's written in a way that keeps the pages turning, even if the plotting and details are a bit loose and the characterization not hugely complex. At first the fact the events from the past happened only a year before the events from the preset seemed a little odd to me, but as the story progressed I ended up liking this aspect. She runs and is able to lure him into the basement, and, dazed by the pills, Jack is unable to react quickly enough before she closes him in. Grace thought her life would eventually revolve around the care of her younger sister, Millie, who has Down syndrome, and if she could find a man she loved along the way, all the better. Then he tells her that they cannot go see Millie at the hospital before their flight, as they don’t have time.
Watching them together, it's obvious that Jack is out to impress Rufus, which means it's important I win Esther round. Neither of them were going to read the book but they ended up being quite interested in the story once I started telling them about it. I have nothing but contempt for men who are found to be violent towards their wives,' Jack says firmly.Indeed, the novel does double duty as a survival manual, packed full of good advice—for instance, try not to get wounded, for “injury turns you from a giver to a taker. I finished Behind Closed Doors about half an hour ago, and my heart still feels like it’s racing, probably not helped by me forgetting to breathe throughout the majority of the book.
