Forget The Girl on the Train – meet the woman who watches from her window, and finds herself caught up in murder…
Classic crime from one of the greats of the Detection Club


‘Watching, fascinated and horrified, he saw thin fingers creep around the edge of the black curtain. Someone from inside was tugging to loosen it . . .’

Miss Janet Martin, a 74-year-old spinster, enjoys her daily habit of watching passers-by from her window. When she strikes up a friendship with one of them – the golden-haired Pamela – she has no inkling that the innocence of her fading years is about to be turned upside down.

The little old lady becomes inextricably involved in the child’s fate, and when she calls in private eye Arthur Crook to help, a plot of abduction, fraud and murder unfolds . . .
