This novel is a page-turner! This was my first A. J. Finn novel and it definitely will not be my last! I enjoyed the writing style and the twists and turns that kept me wanting to read to the end. If I didn’t value sleep so much, I would have stayed up to try and finish this book in a single night.
The author really described agoraphobia in realistic detail; I feel that I can empathize with people inflicted with this disease now that I have seen it from the main character’s, Anna Fox’s, perspective. It is interesting to discover how the main character developed the disease and how debilitating it is. The novel touches on alcoholism and isolation as well. However, the beauty of how AJ Finn depicts these issues are woven in a thrilling mystery plot that engrosses the reader.
Anna Fox , due to her agoraphobia, spends most of her day viewing her neighbor’s activities and happens to see a horrific event. What unfurls is a series of plot twists that keep the reader guessing. Highly recommend.
