THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES AND #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER"You should read Behind Her Eyes...It's bloody brilliant." —Stephen King "An eerie thriller...Pinborough keeps us guessing about just who's manipulating whom – until the ending reveals that we've been wholly complicit in this terrifying mind game." —The New York Times Book ReviewWhy is everyone talking about the ending of Sarah Pinborough's Behind Her Eyes?Louise is a single mom, a secretary, stuck in a modern-day rut. On a rare night out, she meets a man in a bar and sparks fly. Though he leaves after they kiss, she's thrilled she finally connected with someone.When Louise arrives at work on Monday, she meets her new boss, David. The man from the bar. The very married man from the bar...who says the kiss was a terrible mistake, but who still can't keep his eyes off Louise.And then Louise bumps into Adele, who's new to town and in need of a friend. But she also just happens to be married to David. And if you think you know where this story is going, think again, because Behind Her Eyes is like no other book you've read before.David and Adele look like the picture-perfect husband and wife. But then why is David so controlling? And why is Adele so scared of him?As Louise is drawn into David and Adele's 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.In Behind Her Eyes, Sarah Pinborough has written a novel that takes the modern day love triangle and not only turns it on its head, but completely reinvents it in a way that will leave readers reeling."Deserves its own warning label...Avoid any contact with the growing buzz concerning the novel's ingenious, to-die-for twist." —BookPage

Keeps you guessing till the end! Good read.

Currently reading this book and enjoying it, but quite annoyed that someone crossed out many words and phrases to make their own corrections. Seems very disrespectful, arrogant and is very distracting. I did really enjoy this book and it kept me on my toes until the end, it was hard to put down.

All marriages have secrets. Even "perfect" ones. Louise has uncovered some contradictory and unsettling information about her perfect boss, his perfect wife, and their perfect marriage.

This has to be one of my favorite books I've ever read. Definitely wasn't expecting the ending, or the double twist.

Wow. Didn't see that ending coming. Great book. Will definitely be looking for more by this author.

A terrific psychological thriller with a completely unexpected sci fi twist!

This is hands down the best book I've ever read. The twist made me go back and read it twice.. and there's a twist on top of the twist! Definitely worth the read.

I found the book a real page turner but the end was a real letdown. I was expecting a real twist but not the way the author portrayed. I ended up feeling let down and sorry that I wasted my time on something whereby the ending was just too far out.

This twisty mystery full of crazies can get a bit much. Everyone is surprisingly daft but at the end of the day it was an entertaining ride and I did like it.
