By Sophia Whitfield

Behind Her Eyes is a creepy psychological thriller that takes a look inside the breakdown of a marriage.

Since her husband walked out Louise has made a life for herself with her six-year-old son Adam. She holds down a part-time job but has had little time for romance since her divorce from Ian.

When Ian announces he wants to take Adam to France for a month Louise is beside herself. Adam has become her entire life and she is unsure how she will cope without him. But an unexpected encounter with the successful, charming David soon fills the void.

Louise has just accepted a new position at a doctorís surgery and when she is given a tour of the offices she bumps into David, her new boss. Embarrassed by her behaviour Louise resolves to end her relationship with David. Not just because heís her boss but he has a wife. Adeleís photo sits on his desk, a beautiful and serene image.

Married at 18, Adele adores David and canít imagine life without him. The couple has a past that haunts them and keeps them together. Louise becomes embroiled so deeply in both their lives. Despite her friendís pleas to walk away Louise is gripped by the past story of this couple.

Behind Her Eyes is expertly plotted with one twist after another. And the ending? Well we canít talk about that. It has its own hashtag. #WTFthatending
