APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We couldn’t put down Behind Her Eyes, a domestic thriller that marks Sarah Pinborough's move from fantasy and horror to very adult fiction. The novel peers deeply and hauntingly into an extramarital affair from the points of view of the two women involved, drawing the reader effortlessly towards an arresting final twist. Behind Her Eyes is set in London—where the author lived for many years—and based in part on her personal experiences. Pinborough nails the unsettling realism and tightly drawn suspense of her story.
British author Pinborough (Murder) effectively shifts perspectives between two complex characters in this twisty psychological thriller set in North London. Louise Barnsley is chagrined to learn that the hunky man who kissed her in a bar turns out to be her new, married boss, therapist David Martin. Louise and David agree that the flirtation would be just a onetime thing, but their interactions become more complicated when David's gorgeous wife, Adele, bumps into Louise and cultivates her friendship. Sections set in different time frames provide an ominous backdrop for the triangle, with references to dirt under fingernails and things having been done "that could not be undone." Despite her deepening bond with Adele, Louise is unable to successfully repress her attraction to David, even as he shows sides of his personality that disturb her. Pinborough will keep even veteran genre readers guessing about which members of the trio, if any, are providing trustworthy accounts of their pasts and presents.
A good read
I enjoyed the journey more than the end honestly, though I can see it being an amazing ending, it just didn’t quite do it for me
Honestly go read this book! 10/10
Behind Her Eyes
The best book I’ve read in a while! I very rarely give 5 stars but this book thoroughly deserves it.
