The Woman in the Window by A J Finn

I’d seen The Woman in the Window on social media quite a bit over the past couple of months. Emblazoned with the words ‘Over 2 million copies sold’ and a recommendation from Gone Girl author, Gilllian Flynn on the cover, I knew that I had to jump on the bandwagon and read it.

It turns out that it was the right thing to do because The Woman in the Window is one of the best psychological thrillers I’ve read in a long time. And you know I love a psychological thriller.

It is 10 months since Anna Fox last left her large New York home. Estranged from her husband and daughter, she lives alone, too afraid to go out. To pass the time, she observes the comings and goings of her neighbours. When a new family, the Russells, move in, Anna is fascinated by them. It seems that they might become her friends, but then Anna sees something horrifying at the Russells’ house.

As she tries to uncover the truth about what happened, everyone around her is questioning whether it really happened. Anna is becoming an increasingly unreliable witness. Did she really see what she thinks she saw, or is she going insane?

I can totally see why The Woman in the Window has sold over 2 million copies. It is a brilliant thriller, with a couple of huge twists, the sort of twists that take your breath away. If you enjoy a psychological thriller, I can’t recommend A J Finn’s debut novel highly enough.

  1. I only heard about this novel last week when there was an article about Dan Mallory (the author’s real name) in The New York Times. I think the book is also going to be made into a film.

    • I didn’t realise that wasn’t the author’s real name. I definitely assumed it had been written by a woman. The film will be worth a watch!

    • I used to just read them occasionally, but for the last few years, I’ve mainly read thrillers. I absolutely love them and this is a really good one.
