The Woman in the Window: A Novel

The #1 Instant New York Times Bestseller – Soon to be a Major Motion Picture

“Astounding. Thrilling. Amazing.” —Gillian Flynn

“Unputdownable.” —Stephen King

“A dark, twisty confection.” —Ruth Ware

“Absolutely gripping.” —Louise Penny

For readers of Gillian Flynn and Tana French comes one of the decade’s most anticipated debuts, to be published in thirty-six languages around the world and already in development as a major film from Fox: a twisty, powerful Hitchcockian thriller about an agoraphobic woman who believes she witnessed a crime in a neighboring house.

It isn’t paranoia if it’s really happening . . .

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.

Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble—and its shocking secrets are laid bare.

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.

Twisty and powerful, ingenious and moving, The Woman in the Window is a smart, sophisticated novel of psychological suspense that recalls the best of Hitchcock.

American Constitutional Law: Essays, Cases, and Comparative Notes, Volume 1
American Constitutional Law: Essays, Cases, and Comparative Notes is a unique casebook that encourages citizens and students of the Constitution to think critically about the fundamental principles and policies of the American constitutional order. In addition to its distinguished authorship, the book has two prominent features that set it apart from other books in the field: an emphasis on the social, political, and moral theory that provides meaning to constitutional law and interpretation, and a comparative perspective that situates the American experience within a world context that serves as an invaluable prism through which to illuminate the special features of our own constitutional order. While the focus of the book is entirely on American constitutional law, the book asks students to consider what, if anything, is unique in American constitutional life and what we share with other constitutional democracies. Each chapter is preceded by an introductory essay that highlights these major themes and also situates the cases in their proper historical and political contexts. This new edition offers updated and expanded treatment of a number of important and timely topics, including gerrymandering and campaign finance. Volume 1 of this text focuses on governmental structures and relationships and includes a chapter on elections and political representation.

La mujer en la ventana / The Woman in the Window (Spanish Edition)
Una mujer sola y vulnerable, recluida en su casa, ve desde la ventana algo que no debería haber visto.

Pero nadie la cree.

Una historia poderosa y retorcida.
Una protagonista intensa y muy real.
Un sofisticado thriller psicológico para el nuevo milenio con la tensa atmósfera y la oscura elegancia de los mejores clásicos del cine negro.



Nº 1 de The New York Times desde su publicación.
Nº 1 en Australia y Nueva Zelanda

No sabe si lo ha visto o lo ha imaginado.

Anna Fox vive sola, recluida en su casa de Nueva York, sin atreverse a salir. Pasa el día chateando con desconocidos, bebiendo vino (quizá más de la cuenta), mirando películas antiguas, recordando tiempos felices... y espiando a los vecinos.

Entonces llegan los Russell al barrio: una pareja y su hijo adolescente. La familia perfecta. Hasta que una noche Anna ve algo desde su ventana que no debería haber visto. Todo su mundo empieza a resquebrajarse y sus propios secretos salen a la luz.

¿Qué es lo que ha visto? ¿Y qué ha imaginado? ¿Quién está en peligro? ¿Y quién está manipulándolo todo? En este thriller absolutamente fascinante, nada ni nadie es lo que parece.
Tortuosa, escalofriante, original y conmovedora, La mujer en la ventanaes una sofisticada novela de suspense que ya llamó la atención antes de ser publicada. Los derechos de traducción se vendieron a 38 lenguas y Fox empezó a trabajar en su adaptación a la gran pantalla.

Debutó en el n.º 1 de la lista de libros más vendidos del New York Times a la semana de salir a la venta -algo que no sucedía con una primera novela de autor desconocido desde hacía doce años- y permaneció allí varias semanas. Le han llovido los elogios de la crítica, de otros escritores y de los lectores norteamericanos; una acogida entusiasta y bien merecida, que se repite a medida que se publica en nuevos países.

Media Technologies: Essays on Communication, Materiality, and Society (Inside Technology)

Scholars from communication and media studies join those from science and technology studies to examine media technologies as complex, sociomaterial phenomena.

In recent years, scholarship around media technologies has finally shed the assumption that these technologies are separate from and powerfully determining of social life, looking at them instead as produced by and embedded in distinct social, cultural, and political practices. Communication and media scholars have increasingly taken theoretical perspectives originating in science and technology studies (STS), while some STS scholars interested in information technologies have linked their research to media studies inquiries into the symbolic dimensions of these tools. In this volume, scholars from both fields come together to advance this view of media technologies as complex sociomaterial phenomena.

The contributors first address the relationship between materiality and mediation, considering such topics as the lived realities of network infrastructure. The contributors then highlight media technologies as always in motion, held together through the minute, unobserved work of many, including efforts to keep these technologies alive.

Writing to Clients and Referring Professionals about Psychological Assessment Results: A Handbook of Style and Grammar
This book is the first on the craft of effective writing structured expressly for the psychologist-assessor. Author J. B. Allyn, a professional writer who specializes in psychology, combines reference book with tutorial. She blends information on the qualities that create a writer’s unique presence on the page with illustrations of correct English grammar. All of the questions, answers, and illustrations evolved from the concerns of psychologist-assessors, as did the examples, which are grounded in their writing and communication needs. The result creates a guide for report writing that can be used by either practicing professionals or graduate psychology students.
The book divides into three sections: The first and third sections discuss various aspects of effective communication, while the second is a handbook of common grammar problems. Helpful elements guide the reader through the text, including frequent bullet lists, tables and graphs, and grammar and style examples that are framed around assessment reports. It is also written in a conversational tone, which creates the same style it proposes for effectively written reports, and is a key tool for clear and appropriate communication. Readers will refer back to this book, both for quick tips on style and grammar, which are appropriate for any mental health practitioner, and for more detailed advice on writing and communication in assessment reports.
