In the woman in the window, A. J. Finn writes about a woman trapped in her own house. Anna Fox suffers from Agoraphobia and hasn’t left her house in 10 months. She drinks too much Merlot, watches too many Hitchcock movies, and spies on her neighbors. The only visitors she has are her psychologist, her PT, and her basement tenant who helps with things around the house.
That is all until the Russells move across the park. The mother rescues Anna from a panic attack when she attempted to leave the house. The two then have a Merlot-fueled fun evening together. And then Anna witnesses her murder through her window. The cops get involved and no one believes her with the multiple bottles of wine and the pills strewn all over the table. Even Anna has a hard time believing herself when the real Mrs. Russell shows up to confirm that she indeed was not murdered.
This novel has a very Hitchcock feel with the multiple twists and turns and an unreliable narrator.
