The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn

“The definition of insanity, Fox,” Wesley used to remind me, paraphrasing Einstein, “is doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result.”

Dr. Anna Fox is agoraphobic and has been holed up in her home for ten months after her tragic accident.  She spends her days drinking and medicating herself watching her neighbors through her window.  When her new neighbors, the Russell’s, move in, her life will never be the same.  She witnesses a murder and no one believes her.  Will her persistence put her life in danger?

Wow!  I have found my favorite read for 2017!  The suspense and Anna’s paranoia are a lethal combination.   Anna’s fear and vulnerability are palpable and it seeps into the psyche of the reader to where one feels everything she’s feeling.  Several scenes gave me chills, and the story plays out with twists, turns, and surprises like the great black and white movies of yore which Anna watches avidly.  Think The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl and Rear Window all rolled into one.  The best part is that this debut book is being developed as a major motion picture and I am going to be first in line.  An incredible read that will leave you breathless.

Thank you to Mr. Finn, HarperCollins, and Edelweiss for giving me the opportunity to review this book!
