#1 New York Times Bestseller – Soon to be a Major Motion Picture starring Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, and Gary Oldman

“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, mother, their teenaged 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.

BONUS: Includes an interview with author A.J. Finn.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator Anne Marie Lee delivers the tightly wound heroine with precision…Lee makes Anna’s struggle to remain sane in an insane world moving and believable. Revealing Anna’s emotional backstory, Lee’s performance swings from tense to depressed until the past and present intertwine and nothing is what it seems. A.J. Finn’s plot is filled with shocking twists and so many surprises that listeners shouldn’t expect to relax for a second. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”


  • “Narrator Lee, who conjures up several accents and voices, imbues this whodunit with emotional frailty and fear via protagonist Anna. An agoraphobic who binge-watches old movies, abuses alcohol and pills, and spies on her neighbors, she is often drunk, which Lee ably conveys.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • "The Woman in the Window is one of those rare books that really is unputdownable. The writing is smooth and often remarkable. The way Finn plays off this totally original story against a background of film noir is both delightful and chilling.”

  • “The rocket fuel propelling The Woman in the Window, the first stratosphere-ready mystery of 2018, is expertise.”

    " Way too long. Metaphors and descriptions were juvenile and unnecessary. "

    " the book was slow at first and it had to be to give you a little taste of what was to come. The book intensified as you continued to read. Very well written. "

    " The editor of this book should have been fired! Way too many words and repetition. The author is new and the story line was great but way way too long should have been 3/4 of what it was. "

    " Sad characters that you feel all have secrets. the ending was not predictable. A total surprise. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 5/24/2018

    " This story started out a little slow for my taste, and I was even disappointed at one point thinking I had it all figured out... It'll be worth your time to stick it out. This story is full of twists, turns, suspense and surprises. Also, there's an interview with the author at the end that provides insight into the story he created. This was his first novel and it's a good one. "

    " Though I enjoyed the recording of this book, I feel that I would have given up on completing it if I had been reading it in print. The narrator's representation of the fear in this story is the only way I kept involved in the story until the end. "

    " The story was incredibly drawn out - to the point of tedium - my opinion. The last three or four chapters (there are 100!) were at a tempo I liked...but I ALMOST gave up on sticking with the book to the end. I learned that this is this authors first novel. Perhaps he will fine-tune and improve the cadence. "
