The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn is a taut thriller with shades of Hitchcock and other black and white noir films. What’s up with Anna Fox? She’s a recluse, watches old movies,
chats with her husband and daughter (?), and spies on her neighbors. Does she witness a murder at the Russell home?
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. (cover blurb)
This book kept me hooked and questioning Anna. Is she reliable despite drinking a heck of a lot of wine. Did she meet a Jane Russell? Or is the wife of Alistair Russell the real Jane Russell? Is Ethan the innocent confused son? Lots of questions to answer with a very unreliable source. What happened to Anna and her family? Oh, that is key to the Woman in the Window. Will the police, the psychiatrist, the physical therapist, etc be able to piece together answers to this puzzle?
Slick writing, sophisticated suspense. I recommend this book and dare you to piece together the answers. It kept me hooked until the end and then you say “Whoa!” Enjoy the ride.
