Publisher’s Description 

Don’t Trust This Book

Don’t Trust These People

Don’t Trust Yourself

And whatever you do, DON’T give away that ending…

Behind Her Eyes has been called the new Girl on the Train and Gone Girl . This is one psychological thriller you will not want to miss.


Since her husband walked out, Louise has made her son her world, supporting them both with her part-time job. But all that changes when she meets…


Young, successful and charming – Louise cannot believe a man like him would look at her twice let alone be attracted to her. But that all comes to a grinding halt when she meets his wife…


Beautiful, elegant and sweet – Louise’s new friend seems perfect in every way. As she becomes obsessed by this flawless couple, entangled in the intricate web of their marriage, they each, in turn, reach out to her.

But only when she gets to know them both does she begin to see the cracks… Is David really is the man she thought she knew and is Adele as vulnerable as she appears?
Just what terrible secrets are they both hiding and how far will they go to keep them?

My thoughts

Twisted, weird and highly memorable! That is Sarah Pinborough’s unique new psychological thriller Behind Her Eyes.

The story involves three people; Adele, David and Louise. Adele and David are married to each other, in what looks like a pretty perfect marriage from the outside. Louise is a single mum, who meets Adele out and about. She randomly bumps into David and they are attracted to each other. He unexpectedly becomes her new boss. Yes, you can probably see where this is leading. This becomes rather complicated. Louise likes both Adele and David. She strives to keep her relationships with both of them separate. Louise gets drawn into the mysteries of Adele and David and their unusual marriage. She can’t seem to help herself. Louise becomes ever so slightly obsessed. Is everything really what it seems? How will it all play out?

The key to this book is twisted relationships. With exceptional dialogue, these people are truly believable and very much recognisable. The increasingly bizarre triangle of Adele, David and Louise engages the reader over the course of the novel. Sarah Pinborough is a genius. Expect the unexpected. Hold your breath. Behind Her Eyes will astonish.

#WTFending… Sarah Pinborough wins the award for the most unexpected ending ever. Trust me, you won’t see it coming. You will finish the book with your mouth wide open, stunned into silence and utterly shocked. Wonderful! Read the book everyone is talking about. You have been warned! No spoilers!

  1. I still can’t quite believe how much I enjoyed this novel, but I did and it is as you say highly memorable!

  2. I had an early proof but haven’t reviewed it. I read about 50 pages and abandoned it. Maybe this kind of domestic noir thriller just isn’t for me.

    So many people are praising this one. And I’m excited to read it soon or rather listen. I have it preordered on audio. Later this week, I’ll try to see what it’s all about. 🙂

    It’s not often that I’m completely wrong-footed by the ending of a book but this one did it! Don’t think anyone could predict that ending!

    Cannot wait to read this one – I read a sample somewhere but I’m behind on my reading already what with hospital and painkillers that make me drowsy all the time! As soon as I get some spare time – two days is all I need! And NO-ONE has predicted the ending, from what I hear!

    After reading this review, I immediately purchased the ebook! Can’t wait to read it.
