    The widow Fiona Barton, the writer, in her debut novel 'The Window' has garnered acclaim in the literary world. It has received favourable reviews from Stephen King and other crime fiction writers. This novel is a tale of how the reality behind a crime unravels after the death of the accused. The lead character of this book is Jean Taylor, a hairdresser who was the quiet wife of the prime accused (and now deceased) Glenn Taylor. A young girl has been kidnapped and killed. Jean's husband is accused of the crime. He dies in an accident before the truth could come out. This psychological thriller is the story of his spouse and not the accused. She doesn't need to remain quiet and can come out with the truth. The storyline jumps back and forth in time. Dark secrets of their marriage have been revealed in this story. It is a three perspective account. Jean's perspective is in first person narrative and in the present tense. The other two perspectives are in the past tense. The question remains, who is the manipulator' Who is at fault' The tale uses minute details to reach to the climax. In the backdrop of the story, Barton has cleverly depicted how the relationship between Media, Police and individuals involved in a criminal case changes. The idea of exploring a spouse's perspective is fresh and it takes the reader to climax in a sensational way. The content is not graphic, it leaves much to reader's imagination. It is interesting to read about the coping mechanisms used by various people to handle long, torturous trials. The question that remains with the reader throughout the novel is that whether Jean is being honest, or is she hiding something' Who do we trust as a reader' Barton makes us question all the perspectives. This book is a must read for the thriller loving readers. About the author Fiona Barton is a former reporter who worked at The Sunday mail and Daily telegraph. She, during her time as a reporter has attended many trials in courts. She says, she had always observed the spouses of the accused and the victim.
