Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller!
“Astounding. Thrilling. Amazing.” —Gillian Flynn
“Unputdownable.” —Stephen King
“A dark, twisty confection.” —Ruth Ware
“Absolutely gripping.” —Louise Penny
For readers of Gillian Flynn and Tana French comes one of the decade’s most anticipated debuts, to be published in thirty-six languages around the world and already in development as a major film from Fox: a twisty, powerful Hitchcockian thriller about an agoraphobic woman who believes she witnessed a crime in a neighboring house.
It isn’t paranoia if it’s really happening . . .
Anna Fox lives alone—a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times . . . and spying on her neighbors.
Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble—and its shocking secrets are laid bare.
What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one—and nothing—is what it seems.
Twisty and powerful, ingenious and moving, The Woman in the Window is a smart, sophisticated novel of psychological suspense that recalls the best of Hitchcock.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Like all the best psychological thrillers, The Woman in the Window creaks with dark menace and surprise. Influenced by Hitchcock, debut novelist A. J. Finn takes his cues from Hitchcock, carefully building suspicion and paranoia as he pulls us into the world of Anna, a child psychologist who’s become a shut-in after experiencing severe trauma. Finn doles out information in dribs and drabs, giving us fleeting glimpses into Anna’s psyche, her troubled marriage, and the lives of her neighbors, whom she observes through the sealed-shut windows of her Manhattan townhouse.

Although initially slow, this is a thrilling page-turner once Finn gets the story moving.
If you like to try and guess who did it this is the book for you. Exciting turns to the end.
I must say that as a whole the book was ok... it was sort of long and drawn out and at times I had to skim over pages because it was a lot of the same... the last few chapters were really good, but it took a lot to get there. The main characters story was a bit repetitive and because of that, I gave it 3 stars!
