2. The Woman in the Window by A. J. Finn
Few books since Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train have captured the public’s attention like The Woman in the Window. And given the commercial success of Gillian Flynn and Paula Hawkins’ best-sellers, it should come as no surprise that the Hitchcockian thriller is already in development as a feature film starring Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, and Gary Oldman. Not bad for a debut author, eh? Then again, Finn is no stranger to the publishing industry: A.J. Finn is a pseudonym for Daniel Mallory, a former book critic and book editor for William Morrow.
