BOOK TYPE: Fiction / Mystery - Suspense
I often enjoy psychological suspense novels, however, I was deeply disappointed by this one. The Woman in the Window, by A.J. Finn grabs your attention at the start. The protagonist, Anna Fox lives alone. She is a recluse in her New York City home. She spends her days online, drinking wine, watching old movies...and watching her neighbors - using her camera lens to zoom in on their lives. Anna's daughter and husband are away - she says they had to leave her temporarily because of the state she's in. She says she needs to be alone to heal. But heal from what, we don't know. We find out quickly that Anna has a therapist come to visit her at her house. Anna herself is a therapist and she, at times, counsels people online in chat groups. She often talks to others who are recluses like herself.
Anna's life is anything but typical. As she's spying on her neighborhood one evening, she notices the Russells - a family who moves into the house across the street from Anna's. They appear to be perfect...until Anna see's something she shouldn't.
Anna's secrets begin seeping out...her life begins to crumble beneath her. She is losing control...
The book is one that keeps you on edge. It keeps the reader curious. Why is Anna the way she is? What secrets is she hiding? What did she see at the Russells that was so shocking? What is she going to do about it now?
The book is a puzzle - and as readers, we're being navigated by a narrator who is, herself, unstable and a bit of a mystery. If you enjoy psychological thrillers, The Woman in the Window is for you. I highly recommend this book!
