The woman in the window by A. J. Finn


 This was a very good book. Anna Fox is a Child psychologist. She's also an agoraphobian. Which means she can't leave the house without having some breathing problems or even fainting. She spends a lot of her time watching old black and white movies. Plus, she drinks a lot of red wine. She also spends some of her day looking through her camera. She doesn't really take pictures of what she's seeing. Most people just think she's strange and pay her no mind.

Dr. Feilding comes to her house once a week to see how she's doing. Usually they don't talk to much about why she's like she is because he doesn't want to up set her. He knows that she talks to her husband and daughter. You don't find out why their not living with her to farther into the book. I started wondering what was going on pretty early in the book.

She also knew that a new family moved in on the other side of the park. Which she starts to watch them. When the teenage boy Ethan shows up with a candle and to interduce himself to her. She believes he's a very kind kid. She doesn't think much other then that. 

She meets his mother a few days later and things from there become strange to Anna. Because one night while she's watching the family she see's the mother get stabbed. She decides to call the police. After not wanting to wait on them. She makes her first trip out of the house and has problem breathing and things start to spin around her, tell she faints. 

She wakes up in the hospital and not very happy about being there. She meets detective Little. She tells him what she saw and he tells her that he'll take her home and they can figure out what happened. 

After Little takes her home. His partner brings down Mr. Russele. He pretty much just tells Anna that she didn't see anything like that and he brings in his wife who is very much alive. Anna starts getting very upset. Not willing to let this go. Detective Little tries to explain to her that she just thought she saw it and that she needed to let it go. He gives her his card and everyone leaves. She just keeps running it all through her head. 

The book is so good and you'll have to pick it up to find out how it ends. Always remember to read a book, you might just find a favorite or two.

Well, I'm off to start another book.
