[nice tight clean unread book, with no discernible wear; jacket shows very light wear at extremities, faint rubbing/soiling]. Mystery novel about a middle-aged, divorced film reviewer who finds himself involved in what seems to be "a real-life replay of Alfred Hitchcock's 'Rear Window'." According to the jacket blurb, the book "is both a potent psychological thriller and a game -- it offers the experience of a Hitchcock movie, not from outside, which is the way we usually experience it, but from inside, from the point of view of one of the characters." (It would seem to me that this blurb-writer has not actually seen very many Hitchcock movies.)
