  1. To help you decide what to read next, I can tell you about THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW.

    The first 140 pages of THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW seem like too much buildup. But please read them because this is one of those books that’s worth the time it takes up front. I give it four out of five stars because THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW, After that 140 pages, this book is difficult to put down and, when I had to put it down, made me anxious to pick it back up.

    The woman in THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW, Anna Fox, lives alone in a great big house that she never leaves. She drinks too much. (You might even say the descriptions of her drinking are overdone.) And she spends her days online or watching DVDs of old movies or keeping an eye on her neighbors from her window.

    I was immediately reminded of REAR WINDOW, one of the old movies in Fox’s collection. Even though THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW is updated with more recent technology, Fox still uses a camera with a telephoto lens, just like Jimmy Stewart. I knew then that Fox, like Stewart in REAR WINDOW, is looking for trouble.

    Along with that prediction, I easily predicted a couple of other mysteries in THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW. But the book is still a thriller because it contains other mysteries that I didn’t predict. For this reason, I am careful not to discuss particulars. Enjoy this book: discover the mysteries as they occur in the book rather than anticipate them because I told you to.

    One comment, though: A.J. Finn, the author of THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW, uses the best device to show me how bad the bad guy is—hurt the cat.

    1. I saw that, on some of the FB groups I follow, that it was a slow beginning. But I also saw that it was well worth continuing. Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts on this book. Really appreciate it!
