4.5*

"Agoraphobia is an intense fear and anxiety of being in places where it is hard to escape, or where help might not be available. Agoraphobia usually involves fear of crowds, bridges, or of being outside alone." -NIH

For the past 10 months Anna has been trapped inside the four walls she calls home. She can’t bring herself to take a single step outside. No grocery shopping, no walks through the park, not even to pick a package from the front stoop. Anna is an agoraphobic. Her days are filled with pills to control her anxiety and other ailments followed by a bottle or two (sometimes more) of wine to wash it all down. Her life outside her home is only viewed through her Nikon camera, where she watches her neighbors’ daily routines. (Much to their chagrin).

When she witnesses an attack in the home across the street no one will believe her. Not the home owners, not even the police!
Anna begins to question if it’s a side effect of her medication, or is there a reason no one wants to believe her.

This book started out very slow for me. With most of us saying “huh? I’m confused!” That confusion quickly cleared as the pace revved up. Soon I was in full speed thriller mode! What an incredible ride. A.J. Finn had me questioning everyone from Anna herself to a grandmother in Montana!

Some of the twists were predictable - but that didn’t take away from my enjoyment. The big finale of a twist was absolutely perfect! Didn’t see that one coming at all! It’s a fairly long book but reads super-fast and keeps you glued to the pages! This is my favorite kind of thriller!!

Highly recommend!

A Traveling Sister read with Brenda, Norma, Susanne, Lindsay, Diane, Kendall, Jan and Holly!

Thank you to Edelweiss, HarperCollins and A.J. Finn for a copy to read and review

Rita Thank you for your fantastic review, Kaceey. I can identify with the woman in the book. I suffer from bouts of agoraphobia although I am able to leave my apartment at times. Sometimes it's impossible for me to set foot outside of my apartment and I never know when it's going to hit me. I'm really looking forward to reading this book.
