About this deal

Anyone interested in the social and economic solutions to the system that is failing children and their families must read this book. Grace’s thoughts and actions come quick and naturally, focusing only on what needs to be focused on.

I always love first-person narration—it makes the story so believable (unless it’s an unreliable narrator, of course, which she is not). This novel literally forced me to experience emotion just as I would during a legitimately compelling horror movie. It’s disposable, joyless, yet just well-crafted enough with a hint of mystery to keep your attention. dear women's health - please leave the readers' advisory work to trained professionals and stick to telling us how much water we should be drinking.When Grace Harrington meets Jack Angel in Regent’s Park in London, he seems like the perfect man—smart, kind, and even more attractive than George Clooney. psychological suspense novels like Gone Girl are characterized by the destabilizing effect they have on their reader; where tension is built and maintained through misdirection and the manipulation of narrative twists, keeping the reader guessing, uncertain about what's actually going on, where the story is headed, if the narrator can be trusted.

A riveting investigation into how society looks after its greatest and most valuable vulnerable asset: the child. B A Paris even seems to think that you can get upgraded to First Class just by giving the check-in staff a hard-luck story. My main gripe is that it was a bit predictable for me getting towards the end, but at least it still left me wondering how we would get to that point. Unlike other books dealing with abuse and sociopaths, 'Behind Closed Doors' did not provide a lot of graphic, gory details.Her friends wonder why she cancels so many plans at the last minute and upon closer inspection there are bars on the windows.

No, I really CAN'T say how I feel about him, because it would set me off on a rant, and I'd probably give the whole darn plot away! As for the story, it was disturbing on so many levels that it made me feel during several places throughout the book as though I’d been sucker-punched. So many other thrillers build a gradual tension with lots of cliffhangers urging you to keep reading.

What Vickery illuminates, often brilliantly, always entertainingly and through a myriad of examples from many different people, are the ways in which family and gender relations were played out in Georgian England.

We have invisibly re-written the rules of family life creating one of the biggest child removal systems in the world. S. Geological Survey, leading to “immediate suspension of the National Volcano Early Warning System,” and there’s always someone around looking to monetize the natural disaster and the sasquatch-y onslaught that follows. Hope and a possible way out is offered from a very unlikely source but will Grace be able to act upon it?

When talk turns to Jack's job as a lawyer, everyone congratulates him on his most recent conviction. Gandhi claimed that 'The true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members'. Behind Closed Doors is a well crafted thriller novel that follows Grace as she navigates her “perfect” life.
