I’ve read a number of David Baldacci’s stand-alone books, but this was my first dive into one of his series. This series features protagonists Will Robie and Jessica Reel in situations reminiscent of the James Bond series which means that at times it was a little far-fetched. That’s part of the charm with larger-than-life characters, so I didn’t get too bogged down in the nitty-gritty.
It seems like we’re ready for a new hero, or perhaps a heroic duo, and this combination could transfer nicely to the big screen.
I love a good thriller. Something that makes me want to stay up all night reading, something that is so compelling that I can’t put it down. That’s how I felt reading The Woman in the Window.
It wasn’t until the very final dozen pages that I got the hint about the resolution of the issue, and when I thought back on it, all the details and hints were right there in front of me. (I hate it when some fact comes out of nowhere to resolve everything, that’s just too disingenuous.)
This would be a movie that I’d go see, even though I know the outcome.
It’s got all the stuff we love to dish on. And love to hate.
A loving slob. A rich bitch. Someone who needs saving. And someone who just wants to help. It would be a fun romp in the rom-com genre.
