`If you love The Girl on the Train read Behind Closed Doors' - ELLE magazine

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. You might not want to like them, but you do.

You'd like to get to know Grace better.

But it's difficult, because you realise Jack and Grace are never apart.

Some might call this true love. Others might ask why Grace never answers the phone. Or how she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn't work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. And why there are bars on one of the bedroom windows.

Sometimes, the perfect marriage is the perfect lie.

Customer Reviews

Meet Jack and Grace; a happily wedded couple who never seem to be apart, they are always attached to each other. Wherever Grace goes, Jack seems to always be following. They live the perfect life; they have a beautiful home, a beautiful marriage and they both seem to besotted by each other. Grace ends up falling in love with a man named Jack. He was the perfect guy for her and he knew she was the one. The perfect one to instil fear into. One night, whilst in Thailand, he tells her the story of a boy who murdered his mother, and how Grace did the poor mistake of marrying the boy. Jack's a psychopath. The start of the book is somewhat slow as the narrator, Grace begins to tell the very start of her relationship with her psychopathic husband and how she made the mistake of marrying him, before ultimately throwing down the main piece of the story of how she found out that he was a psychopath, and what he did to her for the past months; the wait is worth it. The story switches from past and present, which to some may be a nuisance, but it benefits the reader to understand as to how she ended up in the complicated relationship and how she became his victim of psychological abuse. In the past, she explains how she met Jack, the charismatic nut job, and how she fell into his trap before he exposed his true self to her. It also tells the readers the many attempts she tried to escape and how he psychologically tortured her. The present explains the true picture of their marriage; how he sometimes leaves her for days, locked up in their lovely home all alone, with no food or any source of entertainment; he's completely shut her out of the outside world. It shows the reader the many ways he made her life miserable and how he watched with enjoyment. You truly begin to hate Jack as you witness the insane and immoral side of him. The reader themselves begins to struggle with how helpless Grace is despite the many times she had the chance to escape and run from him; the thing is, he's painted himself to be a saint, the perfect man, and so whenever she tried to call for help, they all assumed she was mentally ill and simply believed Jack's lies and it infuriates you to the point you want to scream at the book. Whilst reading the book, you root for Grace and her autistic sister but grow angry as to how easily everyone trusts Jack and never sees the story through Grace's swollen red eyes. He completely ruins her life and takes away everything from her; her friends, family and her connection to the outside world. She cannot call anyone, cannot go to the movies with her friends and cannot leave her prison without Jack controlling her every move. Jack has a thing for perfection; if she fails to do something in the perfect manner, he punishes her by leaving her in the basement, the “red room” or he refuses her to visit her autistic sister, Molly, someone Grace holds very dearly. The book doesn't keep the reader guessing, it's blunt in the sense that the narrator tells you exactly what is happening and how she found out; the fun part is watching the turmoil unfold it its absolute chaos. There are many parts of the book where you're screaming at Grace to go do something and when she does exactly that, Jack always seems to be five steps ahead of her so she never leaves his clutches; he always has her right where he wants and it crushes you to see him always having the upper hand, all whilst scaring the life out of Grace and destroying her contentment. I highly recommend this book; it's fast pace and is a page-turner, it took me a day to read it. There's enough description that it allows your mind to materialise the situation, it doesn't overpower you with a graphic description; it leaves room for originality. You never truly feel any relief for Grace up until the last page where someone finally understands all the torture and pain she's suffered. It also really makes you think; the perfect marriage or life you've always conjured up may, in fact, be a nightmare that started out with a simple smile. One thing I absolutely love about this book is that it's realistic; it could be happening to anyone. Sometimes the perfection some people project out to the world may just be a facade to hide the hell that is underneath the lovely smiles and loving stares.
