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.

    From start to finish, a great read. Lots of surprises as you get into the meat of this novel. I could not put it down.
  • Ending Was Eye-roll Worthy

    By Stephris
    The author took a shortcut to the end of this book. Kind of ruined it for me. Way too convenient.

    Spellbinding. Always believable. Kept me guessing. Interesting little clues dropped then not revisited until you’ve nearly forgotten about them. Satisfying ending.

    Wow; so many levels; so many layers! Books like this are rare. It’s hard to find such a strong, brilliant and yet very fractured hero.

    Put it down after three pages. Bad writing.

    A modern day Hitchcock. Brilliant suspense. Loved it! Also, when it's turned into a movie and filmed in black and white, like the main character's favorite films, I would not be disappointed.
  • Stick with it

    By coreyau99
    This book starts off very slow, and depressing, however, halfway through I was unable to put it down. A great mystery. Intense and insightful. It brought me into a world that is a reality for some but the average person may not be exposed to.
  • Overly dramatic ending

    By klninn
