The Woman in the Window, by A. J. Finn

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.

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. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/40389527-the-woman-in-the-window?from_search=true
