Plot after

Anna Fox is a survivor of a tragic car accident. Although it is a miracle that she survived. Unfortunately, the car accident has left scars not only on her body but also on her mind. The accident traumatized Anna, causing her to develop agoraphobia. Her condition has made her a prisoner in her large New York City home. Anna now leads a solitary lifestyle but, she once lived as apart of a traditional nuclear family. Anna and her husband Ed are separated and, Ed also has custody of their nine-year-old daughter Olivia. Anna does miss them at times, but thankfully they are only one phone call away.

So with all of that said, how does Anna survive leading a solitary life? Anna loves drinking wine, maybe to the extent of being an alcoholic. She is also apart of an Agora online forum, where she speaks with others who have agoraphobia. Anna also meets with her psychiatrist and physical therapist while making time to spy on her neighbors. The Russells have recently moved across the street from Annas home, adding to her list of spying options. Over time, Anna gets to know the Russells. Alistair Russell is an autocratic father. Jane, Alistair’s wife, is a friendly woman who shares many interests with Anna. Their son Ethan is a private but pleasant teenager. The Russells seem like a typical American family, at least until Anna saw more than she expected.

One evening, during one of Anna’s spying sessions. She witnesses someone stabbing Jane and calls the police. When the police arrive and investigate the Russells’ home, the Russell family denies all allegations. Jane presents herself to the police uninjured. The story Anna told the police now appears to be a lie. Anna tries to assert that the woman claiming to be Jane is not the same woman she met before. However, the police are uninterested.

Later in the novel, Anna receives an anonymous email attached with a picture of her sleeping in her home. Alarmed, Anna calls the police to report an intruder. However, when Anna gets into contact with a detective, she hears alarming news that jolt her to reality. The detective informs Anna that her husband and daughter died in the same car accident which, caused her agoraphobia. She has imagined her conversations with them this entire time. The detective knows that the medication Anna takes can induce hallucinations. The detective proposes that Anna took the picture and then emailed it to herself. Anna is questioning her reality. What is real? What is a hallucination? Anna then wonders if the murder may have been a hallucination as well.

Later in the novel, Anna shows a picture of the Jane she first met to Ethan. Ethan crumbles under pressure and reveals the truth to Anna. Ethan explains that Jane and Alistair are his adoptive parents. The woman Anna witnessed the murder of was Katie, Ethan’s biological mother. Katie wanted to see her son again and traced Ethan’s new family to make that happen. However, Katie’s constant unwanted appearances led to a confrontation with Jane. Afterward, Alistair and Jane hid the body and lied to the police.

Anna is distressed at the news and pleads with Ethan to talk to the police. He comforts her by saying he will convince his parents themselves into the police. That night, Anna is shocked when she notices Ethan in her room. Ethan confesses that he has psychopathic tendencies. Ethan also admits to sneaking into her home at night to watch her sleep. He also informs her that he was the one who killed Katie because she mistreated him as a child. Face-to-face psychopathic killer, what will Katie do?
Or is this another hallucination?
