"Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace: he has looks and wealth, she has charm and elegance. You'd like to get to know Grace better. But it's difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are never apart. Some might call this true love. Picture this: a dinner party at their perfect home, the conversation and wine flowing. They appear to be in their element while entertaining. And Grace's friends are eager to reciprocate with lunch the following week. Grace wants to go, but knows she never will. Her friends call -- so why doesn't Grace ever answer the phone? And how can she cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim? And why are there bars on one of the bedroom windows? The perfect marriage? Or the perfect lie??" --

The content of this book isn't for those who squirm. However, if you can stomach the details this is a great book that I completed in a day just to find out what happened. Great read and would definitely recommend.

What a stunning debut novel by B. A. Paris that grips you with such disturbing intensity and pulls you right in. The characters are very real and you've met some controlling characters in your life but it's doubtful you've ever run into one of the magnitude of the antagonist. There is no atmospheric fluff in the just under 300 pages of the novel and I challenge you to try and sleep before you find out what happens and you have to read to the very last page to find out.
Utterly brilliant and I doubt the author can do a follow-up novel this engaging.

He has looks and wealth...she has charm and elegance...Jack and Grace seem to be the
perfect couple and have the perfect marriage but not everything is what it seems...dark...
twisted...psychological thriller

Excellent finish! Recommended for readers who think this sentence is much too long and descriptive.

I agree with a lot of the other comments. I felt anxious the whole time I read this book, but had to finish it because it HAD to finish better... the abuse, the animal cruelty, the prospect of abuse towards the disabled. This book sucked. Gave me nightmares.

There is enough animal abuse in the real world that it takes a real loser to decide to make some up. Horrible author and book.

While I understand there are relationships in the real world parallel to this story, I could NOT continue. For anyone who has triggers around abuse of innocence and animals, PICK A DIFFERENT BOOK.
