Don’t trust this book. Don’t trust this story. Don’t trust yourself.
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.
If Behind Her Eyes is anything, it’s absorbing. I read the vast majority of it in a day (all but about the first 10 pages, I think, that I’d read a day earlier) and I was completely obsessed with finding out what the devil was going on. The story centres around David, a psychiatrist who has recently moved to a new practice, Adele (his wife) and Louise (his secretary at said new practice), with chapters switching between the perspectives of Adele and Louise.
