The instant New York Times and #1 international bestseller. “You should read Behind Her Eyes…It’s bloody brilliant.” Stephen King

"An eerie thriller…Pinborough keeps us guessing about just who’s manipulating whom – until the ending reveals that we’ve been wholly complicit in this terrifying mind game.” —The New York Times Book Review

Why is everyone talking about the ending of Sarah Pinborough's Behind Her Eyes?

Louise is a single mom, a secretary, stuck in a modern-day rut. On a rare night out, she meets a man in a bar and sparks fly. Though he leaves after they kiss, she’s thrilled she finally connected with someone.

When Louise arrives at work on Monday, she meets her new boss, David. The man from the bar. The very married man from the bar…who says the kiss was a terrible mistake, but who still can’t keep his eyes off Louise.

And then Louise bumps into Adele, who’s new to town and in need of a friend. But she also just happens to be married to David. And if you think you know where this story is going, think again, because Behind Her Eyes is like no other book you’ve read before.

David and Adele look like the picture-perfect husband and wife. But then why is David so controlling? And why is Adele so scared of him?

As Louise is drawn into David and Adele’s orbit, 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 a person might go to protect their marriage’s secrets.

In Behind Her Eyes, Sarah Pinborough has written a novel that takes the modern day love triangle and not only turns it on its head, but completely reinvents it in a way that will leave readers reeling.

    Couldn’t put this book down. Loved it from start to finish. You can really hear the characters voices and emotions throughout. Perfectly paced, and a whirlwind of an ending.
  • Never thought the end in a million years!

    Wow, I don’t give 5’s, but this one deserves it. I could not stop reading and I sure as hell did not see the ending coming. Great, great read!

  • Misleading description

    By fffddddeee111
    If you don’t mind investing hours on a psychological thriller to find out its a supernatural thriller then this book is for you. Very disappointed, do not recommend.
  • Seriously? :( what a cop out

    By LookingForBetterBooks88
    I was so excited about this book and up until the last third I wasn’t disappointed :( it could have been really great, but unless you like thrillers that involve the supernatural it’s a huge let down. It’s enough of a buzz kill when the twists in a book aren’t entirely realistic, but this is so much more annoying than that. The book is set in modern day real-world London building you up for some really promising twists over 10 hours... only for that all come down to this goofy semi-magical and 100% physically impossible premise. I got the gist of where it was headed about two thirds in, but I just figured it was a clever way to throw me off the scent of what would end up being a really great natural explanation... nope! It was even more implausible and silly than I feared. Such a let down
