Why Our Staff Love The Woman in the Window:
A Hitchcockian psychological thriller in the noirish style of Rear Window, The Woman in the Window is a fast-paced, almost cinematic ride that will make for a perfect summer read. Dr Anna Fox, an agoraphobic and emotionally-stunted psychologist, is apartment-bound. Spending her days pill-popping, binge-drinking and voyeuristically scrutinising her neighbours with a camera in hand, she is trying to capture the outside world and bring it inside. Riddled with daily paranoia and anxiety, it's the only way she can have some semblance of control in her foggy world, but when Anna witnesses a horrific crime everything in her carefully controlled life becomes polarised. Disbelief from authorities, unreliable allies and her own emotional limitations compound suddenly into real and inescapable threats. Left with only her psychologists' skills, Anna then tries to decode what's really going on.
Now, you think you know where this story is going, don't you? Think again! This book is too clever for that, and A.J.Finn's plan too subtle.
Unnerving and menacing, this suspenseful gem will grab you and wrench your gut with twist after twist. Try your hardest not to scream though - there's many more secrets to reveal...
Get ready for the biggest thriller of 2018…
What did she see? It's been ten long months since Anna Fox last left her home. Ten months during which she has haunted the rooms of her old New York house like a ghost, lost in her memories, too terrified to step outside.
Anna's lifeline to the real world is her window, where she sits day after day, watching her neighbours. When the Russells move in, Anna is instantly drawn to them. A picture-perfect family of three, they are an echo of the life that was once hers.
But one evening, a frenzied scream rips across the silence, and Anna witnesses something no one was supposed to see. Now she must do everything she can to uncover the truth about what really happened. But even if she does, will anyone believe her? And can she even trust herself?
