Description

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.

    At first I thought this was going to be another boring procedural where I knew the killer by the third chapter. I got that wrong and so much more. No spoilers here but really don’t skip a single page.
  • Could not put it down!

    I read 50-60 books a year. I read reviews to decide if it is worth reading. I see things like “a page turner” and “hard to put down”. Not sure I believe them all. Actually never had a book I couldn’t put down- until this one. If I didn’t have to sleep I would’ve read it in one sitting. I don’t write reviews- until this one. Couldn’t NOT write a review because this was, by far, the best book I’ve ever read.

    Mostly boring and anticlimactic. Too many pages to say very little, frustrating characters and predictable.

    I found this book to be predictable and redundant. I did not care for it at all and would Not recommend it.
