"Astounding. Thrilling. Amazing." (Gillian Flynn) "Unputdownable." (Stephen King) "A dark, twisty confection." (Ruth Ware) "Absolutely gripping." (Louise Penny) For listeners of Gillian Flynn and Tana French comes one of the decade's most anticipated debuts, to be published in 36 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, mother, their teenaged 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. Bonus: Includes an interview with author A. J. Finn.
Woman in the window
I purchased as an audiobook. This is an outstanding novel. Story is excellent and narrator is also excellent. This book catches you from the start and doesn't let you go. Could not put it down. At times I found my heart racing, other times my heart breaking. Wonderful story. No dull moments and never drags on. Be sure to read this book if you like suspense non stop.

I am listening to this on audio and I find the narrator to be annoying and that may be influencing my opinion of the book. I find the language rather contrived-way too many similes/metaphors. The characters don't strike me as authentic and the story line is not very credible.
