What did she see?
It’s been ten months since Anna Fox last left her home. Ten months during which she has haunted the rooms of her old New York house, lost in her memories, too terrified to step outside.
Anna’s lifeline to the real world is her window, where she sits, watching her neighbours. When the Russells move in, Anna is instantly drawn to them. A picture-perfect family, they are an echo of the life that was once hers.
But one evening, a scream rips across the silence, and Anna witnesses something horrifying. Now she must uncover the truth about what really happened. But if she does, will anyone believe her? And can she even trust herself?

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Unfolding over a three-week period, this Hitchcock-influenced novel stars Anna, a child psychologist who’s been a shut-in after experiencing severe trauma. Debut novelist A. J. Finn doles out information in drips and drabs, giving us fleeting glimpses into Anna’s psyche, her troubled marriage and the lives of her neighbours, whom she observes through the sealed-shut windows of her Manhattan townhouse. Like all the best psychological thrillers, The Woman in the Window stoked our built-up suspicions and paranoia.

A thoroughly enjoyable page turner.
Couldn’t get into this one
I really hated the writing style of this from the beginning.... couldn’t get into this one. I think I only made it 10% of the way into the book.
A VHS Friday night thriller
It had a bit of an early nineties VHS b-thriller vibe- particularly in some of the big plot moments and not so subtle foreshadowing. But... the big plot mechanisms are a lot of fun and I love nineties b-thrillers! The book exceeded my expectations. Read it before you see the film (which is apparently headed for the silver screen) so you can obnoxiously complain that the novel was far better.
