Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - CONTENTS - The Woman In The Win­dow by AJ Finn (R285, HarperCollins)

THIS BEAU­TI­FULLY CRAFTED NOVEL is full of sus­pense and men­ace and is, as crime writer Val McDer­mid de­scribes it, ‘Twisted to the max.’ Some­thing ter­ri­ble has hap­pened to child psy­chol­o­gist Anna Fox and she is no longer able to leave her home. She fills her days with black and white movies, drink­ing and watch­ing her neigh­bours as they go about their lives. Her in­su­lar world takes a dra­matic turn when new neigh­bours move in across the park and she is con­vinced she has wit­nessed Jane, the wife, be­ing mur­dered. But no-one will be­lieve her, and po­lice prove Jane is very much alive. But then strange things start to hap­pen. This book gave me night­mares. You’ll want to bolt the doors be­fore you start read­ing it.
