Secrets And Lies
The Therapist by B.A. Paris is a marvellous contemporary psychological thriller that had me gripped from the start.
The novel is written in the present but there are also voices from the ‘past’. I tried to work out whose they were but failed miserably (again!)
As a new resident moves into the square, she is determined to find out the truth about what really happened in her house and who the perpetrator is.
Traumas in the past have far reaching consequences in the present as lives are stuck at a moment in time.
Absorbing, Chilling And Menacing
Bring Me Back by B.A. Paris is a mesmerising psychological thriller that will mess with your mind, raise your pulse and make sure you sleep with the light on. It was absolutely fabulous.
How would you feel if suddenly after twelve years, it appeared someone you loved had returned from the dead? Who is messing with your ordered life? Who can you trust? Can you even trust your own eyes?
The novel is about uncovering the truth. But what is truth? Even the reader begins to doubt as we read through the novel.
The characters were well drawn and likable. The action was puzzling, verging on chilling at times. Using the literary device of ‘before’ and ‘after’, the reader slowly uncovers the action but the ending was jaw dropping. Can you predict what is to come?
Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris is the most marvellous contemporary psychological thriller. It is definitely a book that will mess with your mind. It is a chilling read with more than a hint of menace.
On the surface they have it all but what really goes on behind closed doors? No one really knows the secrets people have.
Tell a lie often enough and with a smile and soon people think it’s the truth. Polishing one’s life so that the surface glitters but neglecting to see the inside is rotten to the core.
What does evil look like? “I feel dismayed at how normal he looks.” Evil looks no different to you or I.
There is a wonderful sisterly bond. Millie has Downs Syndrome and is wonderfully drawn. She is viewed as simple but Millie knows and sees far more than people give her credit for.
