A.J. Finn has created a captivating character in Dr. Anna Fox - our protagonist. She suffers from agoraphobia resulting from a devastating incident that has significantly damaged her. She mixes alcohol with her medication and spends her days looking out her windows at her neighbourhood.
Actually she spies on them, taking pictures with her camera. Making up names and backstories where she does not know the truth and keeping careful watch of what they all get up to. A new family moves in and Anna starts watching them as well.
One day, she hears a scream coming from the Russell's house, and she sees what she thinks could be a crime. But looks can be deceiving, especially if the watcher isn't exactly sober at the time, which is the police's attitude. Did Anna really see what she thought she saw and, if so, why are the Russell's lying?
This debut grabbed me from the first page, held me captive throughout. And if you love a book that is patient and slowly reveals itself to you before shocking you then you will love ‘The Woman in the Window’.
There are many sub plots in this story. You have to decide which ones are dead ends. Good luck with that. There are lots of twists throughout the book and when you think the story is making sense there is a twist.
The story does start off slowly as AJ sets up all the sub plots. Then round 40 per cent the story gets going. It continues at a fairly frenetic pace to the end. The final twists are unexpected but have been lurking there all the time.
This book deserves to be a best seller. I am not going to say it's perfect but it is about damaged people so it's never going to be precise. Just enjoy the ride.
