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 and 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.

If you’ve been around here long enough, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of thrillers, especially the mind-screw variety. So when I snatched this from my mom to read the synopsis about an agoraphobic psychologist who witnesses something she shouldn’t have, I was in.
The character of Anna is so well drawn that we are just as confused as she is. At once, adamant in her knowledge of what she saw, and at other times considerate of how many glasses of wine were mixed with how many pills? And just when you think you have it all figured out, you realize you have no clue at all. The twists and turns in this story kept me on my toes and kept me thinking about the plot in the hours when I wasn’t reading it.
I also loved the whole film noir aspect, the entire thing playing out like an old Hitchcock movie. It provided a backdrop to the story making it just that much darker and mysterious.
This book earned every one of the fiver I gave it. If you enjoy thrillers, you need to read this. The Woman in the Window is a keep-you up-late thrill ride that does not disappoint.
