About the book

The Woman in the Window is a gripping psychological thriller about an agoraphobic woman who believes she has witnessed a horrible crime in a neighbouring house.

38-year-old Anna Fox is one of the most appealing and intelligent heroines in recent fiction. Her story is laced with stunning turnarounds, and brimming with allusions to classic suspense films.

The book can be enjoyed as both a swiftly-paced thriller and an earnest account of grief and trauma, resilience and redemption.
