Unfortunately, I was unable to get into Behind Closed Doors, and gave up half way through. Although I was reasonably interested in Scarlett’s story, I wasn’t keen on other aspects of the novel. I didn’t find the police procedural sections very interesting, and felt it dragged me away from Scarlett’s story.
I also didn’t fully understand the point of the police intelligence reports. They just felt like they interrupted the flow of the story, and the witness statements were so tiny, they were quite hard to read on a basic Kindle.
Having said that, I loved Into the Darkest Corner, so I’m still interested in future books by this author. This one just wasn’t for me.
I would like to thank the publisher, Little, Brown Book Group UK, Sphere, for allowing me a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
