Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller!“Astounding. Thrilling. Amazing.” —Gillian Flynn“Unputdownable.” —Stephen King“A dark, twisty confection.” —Ruth Ware“Absolutely gripping.” —Louise PennyFor readers of Gillian Flynn and Tana French comes one of the decade’s most anticipated debuts, to be published in thirty-six languages around the world and already in development as a major film from Fox: a twisty, powerful Hitchcockian thriller about an agoraphobic woman who believes she witnessed a crime in a neighboring house.It isn’t paranoia if it’s really happening . . . Anna Fox lives alone—a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times . . . and spying on her neighbors.Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble—and its shocking secrets are laid bare.What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one—and nothing—is what it seems.Twisty and powerful, ingenious and moving, The Woman in the Window is a smart, sophisticated novel of psychological suspense that recalls the best of Hitchcock.

Lady in the Window

Pretty Kate Grace, 30, is a successful, respected lifestyle writer for the popular New York View Magazine. She has everything she could want -- a loving family, a marriage-bound relationship with a handsome real estate developer, and great friends. Life gets even better when she is given the plum writing assignment of interviewing top talk show host, TV producer and philanthropist, Olivia Larkin, a 40-year-old black woman who has successfully navigated the glass ceiling creating her own dynamic life. However, when Kate takes her first trip to Kauai to interview Olivia in her seaside Princeville estate on the Garden Isle of Kauai, little does Kate know that this trip is part of divine providence's plan. For when Kate arrives back in New York, her life takes an immediate downward spiral. The man she has dated for five years tells her that the marriage they have talked about and believed in, will never be. Then, just as Kate is about to emerge from this traumatic loss, she suffers another, the death of her dear mother. As these unforeseen, life-altering events disrupt Kate's raison d'etre and life, as she has known it, her new friend Olivia comes to the rescue, offering her respite as her guest in a seaside garden cottage rental in the ancient, magical paradise that is Hanalei, Kauai.The angelical "otherworldly" occurrences that begin to transpire are too synchronistic and too poignant for Kate to ignore. Kate believes, somehow, that her mother's death bed promise to her, to help guide Kate find her way in this life, is indeed the answer to these mystical occurrences. As a result, Kate begins to look at her choices and the world differently. Allowing life to unfold naturally, close to nature, and with a new perspective proves to ignite both Kate's spirituality and creativity. It also aligns Kate to meet her true soul mate, Kai, a young Emergency Room doctor with a passion for nature and gardening, who has also suffered his own share of disappointments as well as the heartbreak of losing his mother in a tragic accident that has caused a family riff. Together, with Olivia's friendship, and a little divine "motherly" direction from above, both Kate and Kai help themselves and their families to heal, and in the process rediscover all the beauty and joy that life, love, and Ohana ("family") has to hold.

A tiny community nestled deep in the forest, it is slowly losing ground to the ever-encroaching trees. But down by the lake stands an old ice rink, built generations ago by the working men who founded this town. And in that ice rink is the reason people in Beartown believe tomorrow will be better than today. Their junior ice hockey team is about to compete in the national semi-finals, and they actually have a shot at winning. All the hopes and dreams of this place now rest on the shoulders of a handful of teenage boys. Being responsible for the hopes of an entire town is a heavy burden, and the semi-final match is the catalyst for a violent act that will leave a young girl traumatized and a town in turmoil. Accusations are made and, like ripples on a pond, they travel through all of Beartown, leaving no resident unaffected. Beartown explores the hopes that bring a small community together, the secrets that tear it apart, and the courage it takes for an individual to go against the grain. In this story of a small forest town, Fredrik Backman has found the entire world.
