The perfect marriage? Or the perfect lie?

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He’s a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You’re hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better.

But it’s difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are inseparable.

Some might call this true love. Others might wonder why Grace never answers the phone. Or why she can never meet for coffee, even though she doesn’t work. How she can cook such elaborate meals but remain so slim. Or why she never seems to take anything with her when she leaves the house, not even a pen. Or why there are such high-security metal shutters on all the downstairs windows.

Some might wonder what’s really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed.

From bestselling author B. A. Paris comes the gripping thriller and international phenomenon Behind Closed Doors.


W 1973 roku George Lucas nabazgrał w swoim notatniku pierwsze zdania o walce galaktycznego Imperium z rebeliantami. Cztery dekady i ponad 40 miliardów dolarów później gadżetów związanych z uniwersum Gwiezdnych Wojen było więcej niż mieszkańców Ziemi, a wiara rycerzy Jedi stała się oficjalnie uznawaną religią.

Dzieło Lucasa wyrwało się z ram kina. Dziś jest jedną z najbardziej lukratywnych i wpływowych marek. Kompletna historia fenomenu Gwiezdnych Wojen nie została jednak nigdy opowiedziana. Aż do dziś. Trzymasz ją w ręku.

Chris Taylor – dziennikarz tygodnika „Time” i redaktor portalu Mashable – podąża śladami gwiezdnej sagi: od jej trudnych narodzin, poprzez burzliwe losy marki, aż po kontrowersje wokół najnowszego filmu. Dociera do ludzi, którzy pomogli przekuć pomysł Lucasa w legendę. Spotyka fanów i ludzi od marketingu, dla których Gwiezdne Wojny stały się sposobem na życie. Stacza walki ze współczesnymi rycerzami Jedi i majsterkuje z konstruktorami droidów.

Taylor szuka odpowiedzi na pytania, jak to się stało, że Gwiezdne Wojny przyciągnęły i zainspirowały miliony, i dlaczego będą rozpalać naszą wyobraźnię i zarabiać gigantyczne pieniądze przez kolejne pokolenia.

„Nie sposób wyobrazić sobie fana Gwiezdnych Wojen, który nie pokocha tej książki...” — Booklist

„Niezwykle zabawna opowieść. Taylor śledzi fenomen Gwiezdnych Wojen od narodzin pomysłu do szczytu popularności i mówi nam: «Spójrz tylko, jakie to ogromne!»” — Simon Pegg, aktor i fan GW
