Publisher's Summary

The instant New York Times and USA Today bestselling debut psychological thriller you can't miss!

The perfect marriage? Or the perfect lie?

"A hair-raising debut, both unsettling and addictive...A chilling thriller that will keep you reading long into the night." —Mary Kubica, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Good Girl

"This debut is guaranteed to haunt you...Warning: brace yourself." —Bustle (10 New Thrillers to Read This Summer)

"The sense of believably and terror that engulfs Behind Closed Doors doesn't waver." —The Associated Press, picked up by The Washington Post

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He's a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You're hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better.

But it's difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are inseparable.

Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone. Or why she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn't work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. Or why she never seems to take anything with her when she leaves the house, not even a pen. Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows.

Some might wonder what's really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed.

From bestselling author B. A. Paris comes the gripping thriller and international phenomenon Behind Closed Doors.

    "Wow"

    Wow...I've listened to MANY audio books and never felt the need to write a review after I was done. But this book definitely deserves recognition! I could not stop listening!!! It was intense, nail biting...all the way till the very end. The details were so well written that I actually felt like I was living in the moment of the story. I could not stop listening. At first I thought ok, this will be just a regular suspense story...starting of with the details of each character. But within 2 hours into it, I was hooked! Written VERY WELL, narrated VERY WELL!

    Story
    "Worth a Credit"

    The end of this story is worth the read/listen. I did have some issues with behavior of a woman who was intelligent, well traveled for her job and living an independent life before she meets " the man of her dreams ". After that I was puzzled by her choice. I don't want to give anything away but I'm curious how others will view her actions after she realizes he's not who she thought. From my point of view after he gave her the choice to go with him or get out of the car, I would have been out of that car so fast his head would spin. I feel she knew enough of the situation to get away now!! of course then there would be no story. I kept reading because I really needed to find out what happened in the end. I think some will really like this suspenseful listen, others not so much. The ending was worth the read and I will recommend it for that reason.

    The villain in this story is so dark that I almost had to press pause at times although I couldn't bring it was so engaging that I marathon listened.
    What a selection , it felt much more like an seasoned authors work then I thought it may.
    Maguire keep them coming please.

    Story
    "Slow start but a gripping experience"

    I highly recommend this book for fans of psychological thrillers. I would warn that it is a frightening story, and while not frankly violent, there is some upsetting content regarding abuse.
    I'd also suggest that the listener needs to be patient for the story to get off the ground. In my opinion, the author spent far too much time laying groundwork when the issues are pretty obvious for anyone with the least bit of skeptical disbelief of 'perfect' appearing existences.
    This book straddles the horror genre as well- I've just finished and find myself with an ongoing sense of dread and fear that built as I listened. For anyone who says that this 'could not happen'- think again. And

    "Disturbing - yet well written and narrated"

    I don't want to say anything that would end up a spoiler. All I can say is I found this story disturbing and at times I wanted to stop listening because I wasn't sure if I could handle what was going on - but I couldn't stop listening because this is a really good story, well put together and I had to know how it ended. Even though I am still sitting here with a lump in my stomach, I can say this was well worth the credit.
