The Woman in the Window is one of the most eagerly anticipated literary debuts of the decade—a Rear Window expertly and thrillingly re-imagined for our time, with comparisons being drawn to major publishing events like Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train.
‘Astounding. Thrilling. Lovely and amazing. I could weave in more superlatives but you get the idea. Finn has created a noir for the new millennium, packed with mesmerising characters, stunning twists, beautiful writing and a narrator with whom I’d love to split a bottle of pinot. Maybe two bottles—I’ve got a lot of questions for her.’―Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl
‘An incredible debut, I absolutely loved it. I read The Woman in the Window in a single day. Full of suspense and surprises and told with heart, The Woman in the Window will send readers racing through its pages. A stunning first outing from A.J. Finn. He is a tremendous new talent.’—Jane Harper, author of The Dry
‘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 his totally original story against a background of film noir is both delightful and chilling.’―Stephen King
‘Twisted to the power of max. Hitchcockian suspense with a 21st century twist.’―Bestselling author Val McDermid
‘The Woman in the Window is the most riveting thriller I’ve read since Gone Girl. A.J. Finn is a bold new talent with the touch of a master.’―New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen
‘The Woman in the Window reads like a classic Hitchcock movie in novel form … Dripping with suspense. Creaking with menace. Beautifully written. There’s a lot of buzz around this book and every single bit of it is totally justified.’―Simon Toyne, bestselling author of the ‘Sanctus’ trilogy
‘Amazing. What an elegant, beautifully written thriller … It’s quite a cliché, but I was genuinely walking around the house/answering the door/eating my meals with the book in my hand.’―Joanna Cannon, internationally bestselling author of The Trouble with Goats and Sheep
