Behind Closed Doors by Catherine Alliott is a marvellous psychological suspense that will have you glued from the start.
Catherine Alliott has created a perfect cast of eclectic characters. The leading lady really brought out the mothering instincts in me – she was kind and caring, recovering from years of domestic abuse.
Catherine Alliott has sensitively portrayed a damaged marriage with the husband and father wielding the psychological power. The fall-out of the abuse has far reaching victims. The reader witnesses how years of abuse have effects that blur the truth and the lies, so deep is the trauma.
We witness a dreadfully tormented soul who is wracked with guilt that is undeserved.
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.
