"It isn't paranoia if it's really happening... Anna Fox lives alone -- a recluse in her New York City home, drinking too much wine, watching old movies... and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move next door: a father, a mother, their teenaged son. The perfect family. But when Anna 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 gripping Hitchcockian thriller, no one and nothing are what they seem."--

Not perfect perhaps, but thoroughly enjoyable. The first book in a long while that I really looked forward to picking up again during breaks in reading.

The author effortlessly switches our view from this reality to that reality, taking our perceptions around corners we never see coming. It is well worth the trip.

Wow I think I became a little intoxicated just by reading this. This character goes hard on the Merlot and as some other reviewers say, the constant reference to her drinking can get tiresome and slows down the plot. I thought the ending was a bit unbelievable but I suppose those writing in this genre have to stay competitive in the wake of Girl on the Train, The Woman in Cabin 10, The wife between us, etc. etc.

After the first few chapters it was totally predictable and was hard to read to the end. I finished it but probably would not recommend it.

If you can't sleep at night this is the book to read. It will keep "you" up all night.
Not much love but a lot of mystery, suspense. Will drive you nuts until you finish it and I would recommend this one to everyone!! What a "great" ending?????? Surprise!!!

THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN meets REAR WINDOW. THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW is a stay-up-all-night delight and a solid psychological thriller. It’s not without some shortcomings: the main character’s dysfunction wore thin, the setting for the story’s climax was telegraphed early on, and I figured out one twist way before the secret was revealed. Despite all this, the short chapters, increasing tension and suspense held my attention to the very last page. And author A. J. Finn’s frequent references to film noir classics was an added bonus since it provided a list of movies that’ll hold fans like me until THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW hits the big screen.

This psychological thriller is a quick read, and I was pleasantly surprised by it. In spite of the unreliable narrator (which is becoming a little old), Finn still managed to create an interesting, complex story. If you like thrillers by Hitchcock, George Cukor, and other classic greats, you may enjoy this book, which intertwines dialogue from their films with the book's action scenes.

The protagonist is drunken, dissolute, debauched, depressed -- and stuck in her house with acute agoraphobia. She's the hero, and the author indulges in a bit of manipulation to make you feel sorry for her, which takes some doing. I strongly suspected, bordering on deduced, the two key mysteries of this book, plus a couple of other minor sub-mysteries. Nonetheless, the author writes artfully and the pace of the work is brisk. Not a great book, but it's soon to be a movie, so you know it’s written at a popular level. I confess I find reading suspense novels unsettling. I don't care for the internal sensation suspense builds in my gut, so I tend to avoid them. Perhaps this colors my thoughts here.

Whew! This was a twisty, crazy, page-turner of a read that kept me on the edge of my seat from the first page to the last. Loved it!

Good Book! I really enjoyed this book and will read more by this author. Good story line with plenty of twist and turns. Did not predict the ending which was another twist.
