U.K. Bestseller Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris Available August 9, 2016 in the U.S.

Available in the U.S. on August 9, 2016, Behind Closed Doors written by B.A. Paris is a good choice for a late summer read.  If you are looking for a page turner of a piece of fiction, this may be your best bet. 

Paris' first published novel, Behind Closed Doors is a dark thriller of a story about a newlywed wife held hostage by her domineering, sadistic husband.  A successful lawyer in London, Jack Angel is, in fact, too good to be true.  He swept Grace off her feet and after initial hesitation, she left a career of her own to begin a new life with Jack.  He built a beautiful home for them just outside of the city and as they honeymooned in Thailand, the truth began to emerge. 

Grace is left guardian of her mentally disabled younger sister, Millie, when their parents move to New Zealand.  Millie lives in a group home and when she turns eighteen, she ages out of the arrangement.  Grace convinced Jack to arrange for Millie to live with them when the time came.  As the story develops, Jack makes it perfectly clear that he intends to inflict the same abuse to Millie as he does to Grace herself. 

I won't give away the ending but you will not be disappointed.  This novel keeps the reader's interest from the first chapter and is a fast read.  It makes for a great summer's distraction for any reader.  Already a bestseller in the U.K. (with the movie rights sold) , Behind Closed Doors will be available on August 9, 2016 in the United States.
