Behind Closed Doors B.A. Paris Release Date: August 9, 2016
WOW. This book reminds us of the fact that abuse is not just physical but can be mental too. It happens slowly, over time, until you realize what you have gotten yourself into. This was an intense read. Excellent writing, with the creepiest protagonist I have encountered in a long time. He seemed to have thought of everything. I walked away from the book a couple of times before I hit the middle of the story. I didn’t go back because I was asked to read the book, but because I had to know what happened. Once I hit the middle of the book, I could not put it down until I finished it. The story resonates with you for a long time after the last word. It is going to make a wonderful book club book or even a movie. If you enjoy psychological thrillers, this book is for you.— Della McNamara
