Behind Closed Doors by Carol Wyer

4 day race to find his daughter

A twisty psychological thriller that had me thinking “did he or didn’t he”.

After a dark opening chapter, the story immediately jumps forward 30 years to when Stacey gets a call from her ex-husband who is in a total panic.  His daughter has been kidnapped, he is terrified, and Stacey need to help him – because of her past.   Similarities arise between the now and Stacey’s past, but she has blocked off her memories – does she really need to confront what happened all those years ago?

Taking place over 4 days, this is a fast moving, heart racing thriller.  Plenty that kept me guessing, plenty of surprises and a great read.   I enjoyed the psychology of the two main characters; Stacey’s concerns over her past, and her ex-husband – a reformed character or just the same?

This is the first book I have read by Carol Wyer – can’t believe that! Though most of her other thrillers appear to be series, this is a standalone read.

  1. Hi Emma,
    I couldn’t get my comment to send yesterday but I’m back today to say a huge thank you for your amazing review and to thank you for being part of the tour. I’m delighted that you enjoyed the book, especially as it was a standalone thriller and not my usual crime fiction.
    If you have a moment, I’d really appreciate it if you could copy this review to Amazon. I would love other readers to be able to read it. (Apologies if you have already done it, – I didn’t spot it this morning but in my defence I was bleary-eyed!)
    Thank you too for sharing the book love… without you and others like you… I would have no readers!
    Carol xoxo

    • Hi Carol,
      I’m afraid Amazon banned me, a long time ago, from leaving reviews on their site, as I don’t leave 1 or 2* reviews. If a book is not for me (and plenty are not) I simply move on and find one that is. This apparently means I am not a real person!

      I’m looking forward to reading more of your books – thanks for improving my life!

      • Amazon are ridiculous at times, aren’t they? I never leave 1 or 2 star reviews either because i move on and don’t want to hurt a writer’s feelings. i know what it feels like to get work lambasted. It knocks self-confidence right out of the window.
        Anyway, thank you for shouting out and being part of all this. I appreciate it more than you can know. Hopefully you’ll find a few more of my titles to keep you amused until the next one which is due out in April. xxx
