I haven't understand, what difference in meaning:

"He looked back at her."


"He looked back out at her."

Thank for your meaning!

This phrase from the book (no ads!), some wider context:

Mickey carried the gems to the small bathroom and flicked the switch. “I’ll be damned.” He looked back out at her. “This isn’t natural?”


"back" and "out" aren't really connected (e.g. it's not some kind of expression)... It means he looked back at her, and he looked out at her, simultaneously...
