My Thoughts: Behind Her Eyes started out a little slow, but soon picks up as you try to figure out the strange relationship between David and Adele.

The ending of Behind Her Eyes threw me for loop. It was an ending I was not expecting.

it all comes to a point. All the secrets are released. So many suspects
and theories. It was a wild ride that I highly recommend for a fast
