“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.


  • Great!

    This book was so good. I had no idea what was really happening for a while. She wrote this very well and I was hooked the whole time. I do have to say, the move did not do this book justice!

  • Not nearly as gripping as I had hoped

    By a.struble
    The book starts slow. The twist are obvious. The ending was nice I enjoyed the characters and the writing is pretty good the story line was just too predictable from the jump. I found it a bit boring.
  • Excellent Mystery

    By jenniferaneilia
    Well developed plot; I did not figure out “who-done-it” until the author wanted me to.
  • Enjoyable, suspenseful

    By CaliRya
    Riveting, well-written thriller. The style of writing was so clever and descriptive, with quite a few surprise twists and reveals. It’s one of those rare books that I thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish.
  • Deserves More Stars!

    By Ozcrome
    This is an absolutely fantastic book. I loved it. The writing style was fast paced, and contrary to other reviews, carried the story like a feather in the wind. Chapters were very short, which I enjoyed because I could read a chapter while I was between tasks or waiting on something, and at the end of each chapter, even the shortest ones, I felt compelled to go on to see what would happen next because each chapter gave me something to look forward to. I have rarely been so enthusiastic about any book as I am about this one. You just have to read it!
