"Behind Her Eyes" was a nail biting, psychotic thriller which had me second guessing each character right until the last word! I thought I knew what would happen but I never expected the story to take the twist that it did.
Initially, I didn't like the way the storyline kept going from past to present when the characters were speaking but as I got more involved in the book, I realised that it was necessary to explain how the plot develops.
The pace of the storyline was quite long but as the story is told from each characters perspective, you get used to it the more you read on. The characters are all deeply troubled in their own way and each have a secret that they can't have revealed in order to stay out of trouble.
I've read quite a few books this year but in terms of twists, plots and mind blowing experiences, this book is top of the list by far!!
A fabulous read for 2017 and I hope there's a sequel soon to follow.
5 out of 5 stars
