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
Meet an outstanding new voice in psychological thrillers. A. J. Finn’s debut pulled us irresistibly into the world of troubled but sympathetic Anna Fox, an agoraphobic child psychologist who thinks that she’s witnessed something terrible happen to a neighbouring family. Ford skilfully builds Anna as a character you want to believe but can never really trust. The unhurried but enthralling story builds towards the truth via sharp and spectacular twists that took us completely by surprise.
Good plot well written
Keeps you guessing loved it
Sadly I am not in a position to write a fair review, as I couldn’t get passed chapter 23 - absolutely nothing happens from chapter 1-23, nothing at all. I’m an avid reader (and audiobook listener), and very rarely give up on a book, and I’m a huge ‘who dunnit’ and psychological thriller fan, from Ruth Rendell to Christie, to Lee Child to Ian Rankin, so I’ve done the rounds. And I surprised myself and actually found Gone Girl a very entertaining read - I read a review for TWITW, which said if I’d enjoyed GG, I’d enjoy this - WRONG.
Both women are extremely irritating and unlikeable , with very dull lives - if you’re going to give us little or no action for (at least) 23 chapters, then you’d better be darn sure those chapters, which are predominantly just ‘whitterings’ about characters’ daily routines, are well written, descriptive and.... interesting!!! I hope for the sake of those who did reach the end without slipping into a deep sleep, it was worth it. I am flabbergasted to hear there is a film being made of it - Amy Adams and Julianne Moore certainly have their work cut out !?
The Woman in The window
Annoying voice reading too quickly.
