This week my teaser comes from Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough. It’s a thriller I received from NetGalley about a woman, Louise, who gets drawn into the complicated, and slightly unsettling, marriage of David and Adele. I finished this book at the weekend and while I had a small issue over an element of the plot I really enjoyed it. It’s one of those rare creatures, a psychological thriller with a MC you kind of like.
To trust the truth of a thing, you have to suffer the thing. You have to get mud on your hands and dirt under your fingernails. You have to dig for it.

Don’t trust this book. Don’t trust this story. Don’t trust yourself.
‘Sarah Pinborough is about to become your new obsession’ Harlan Coben
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 world, 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 someone might go to protect their marriage’s secrets.
‘The most unsettling thriller of the year… Read it now before someone spoils the end for you’ John Connolly
