"The Window opens in the summer 1954. At the center of the story is Eva, a young woman whose marital engagement has recently ended," press notess state. "Alone and unhappy, she is using what would have been her honeymoon, as a paid taste tester for a new diet soft drink that may contain harmful side effects. Her only distraction is living vicariously through her neighbors from a picture window that faces theirs. Eva’s aunt, a wealthy Park Avenue matron who’s anything but matronly, arrives with a suitcase, ostensibly to keep her niece company for a few days. Shortly after her arrival, however, her aunt begins to make a series of disturbing night time disappearances leaving Eva alone to hear what she believes to be someone being murdered in one of the apartments near to her own. Her anxiety is compounded by a sudden visit from a handsome stranger who professes to know her aunt too well for Eva’s comfort and is further distressed when he begins to take an interest in her."

Mondelli's writing credits include the novel "Occhi di cane, cuore di cervo," the film "The Contenders" and the screenplay "A Small Accident."
