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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The strongest, most unsettling thriller of the year, with a final twist destined to provoke arguments for years to come. Read it now before someone spoils the ending for you. John Connolly, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Charlie Parker novels
Behind Her Eyes is a dark, electrifying page-turner with a corker of an ending. Sarah Pinborough is about to become your new obsession. Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Fool Me Once
"Behind Her Eyes is a cunning puzzle-box of a novel, a masterfully engineered thriller that brings to mind Hitchcock at his most uncanny, and Rendell at her most relentless. Lean and mean, dark and disturbing, this is the kind of novel that takes over your life. Sarah Pinborough slays. Joe Hill, New York Times bestselling author of NOS4A2
Behind Her Eyes is as twisty as a steep mountain road, and just as nerve-wracking. The shocks just keep coming around those blind curves. Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Sookie Stackhouse series
First you’ll want to know the ending. Then you’ll HAVE to know the ending. And when you close the book with paper cuts from turning pages so fast you'll want everyone you know to read it too so you can talk about it. You know the rules to Fight Club. Well the rules to Behind Her Eyes are simple. Get a copy by any means you can. And do not tell ANYONE how it ends. Simon Toyne, author of The Searcher
Twisty psychological thriller…Pinborough will keep even veteran genre readers guessing. Publishers Weekly
A modern love triangle with so many mind-screws you start questioning if maybe this particular triangle has more than three points. It's funny, it's cold, it's modern. A master-class in juggling moods and the two sides to every story. And, wow, that ending. Pinborough's latest had me questioning everything. And the answers that eventually came frightened me more than the unknown preceding them. I loved Behind Her Eyes. It's a modern love triangle thriller and it would make one helluva movie. Josh Malerman, bestselling author of Bird Box
“The season’s twistiest thriller…Like all powerful over-the-counter drugs, Behind Her Eyes deserves its own warning label... mindblowing, genre-bending, breakthrough psychological thriller…avoid any contact with the growing buzz concerning the novel’s ingenious, to-die-for twist. BookPage"A masterpiece of suspense...A rare joy...Creates a sense of disorientation and dread that is highly satisfying. But it is with the plot, so tight and yet also intricate, that Pinborough shines. No detail or character is extraneous.

“[A] love-triangle mystery with a mind-blowing twist.” BookPage
“Four narrators tell the story…The narrators use consistent pacing and build on the puzzling questions and tense atmosphere surrounding the marriage of Louise’s boss, David, and his wife, Adele.
