About the Book

Part haunting crime thriller, part love story - and now a major motion picture, starring Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman.

Benjamin Chaparro is a man haunted by his past - a retired detective, he remains obsessed with the decades-old case of the rape and murder of a young woman. As he revisits the details of the investigation, he is reacquainted with his similarly long, unrequited love for Irene Hornos, then just an intern, now a respected judge.

Absorbing and masterfully crafted, The Secret in Their Eyes is a meditation on the effects of the passage of time and unfulfilled desire.

The Secret in Their Eyes was made into the Academy Award winning film of the same name in 2009. Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, and Chiwetel Eijiofor now star in the English remake of this gripping story, to be released late 2015.
