The book got high praise from Gillian Flynn who said “Finn has created a noir for the new millennium, packed with mesmerizing characters, stunning twists, beautiful writing and a narrator with whom I’d love to split a bottle of pinot. Maybe two bottles—I’ve got a lot of questions for her.”

The book sees a woman named Anna Fox who lives alone in New York City. She’s a recluse who is unable to go outside, staying home all alone and drinking wine, watching movies, and spying on her neighbors.
