Tommy escapes, but the pair quickly recaptures him, taking him back to their apartment in a taxi.
Tommy screams at a policeman for help, but the officer remembers Tommy as the boy who came to the station earlier and failed to convince the police.
The Kellersons fool the cab driver by posing as Tommy's parents. Woodry returns from work to find Tommy missing. Woodry then asks a police officer for help.
Meanwhile, the Kellersons have Tommy secured in their apartment. Tommy escapes, climbs onto the roof and is pursued by Mr. Kellerson, but Mrs.
Kellerson has a change of heart about killing Tommy. The police officer suggests that Tommy went to see his mother, and he and Mr.
Woodry leave the tenement. Tommy sees his father leave in his car and shouts for him, the sound of which alerts Mr. Kellerson to Tommy's location.
The chase resumes with Tommy finding the body of the dead sailor. The upper building starts to collapse. As Mr.
Kellerson is about to grab Tommy, Tommy pushes a rafter aside and Kellerson falls before the rafter collapses and kills him. This time, Tommy screams loud enough for neighbors to hear and they call the police.
The boy is rescued and his parents are proud of him. Ullman had been head of RKO's documentary and shorts department.
Ullman wanted to use a semi-documentary style as he came from that background. Filming started 10 November It was the first movie RKO shot in that city in a long time.
However, in , he was persuaded to release it and it became a critical and financial success, earning many times its production costs, with Bobby Driscoll being awarded a juvenile Oscar for his outstanding performance in it.
Bobby Driscoll was borrowed from Walt Disney to play the lead role. When the film was first released, The New York Times lauded the film and wrote "The striking force and terrifying impact of this RKO melodrama is chiefly due to Bobby's brilliant acting, for the whole effect would have been lost were there any suspicion of doubt about the credibility of this pivotal character.
Occasionally, the director overdoes things a bit in striving for shock effects, such as when the half-conscious boy teeters on the rail of a fire-escape or is trapped on a high beam in an abandoned house on the verge of collapse.
However, though you may be aware of contrivance in these instances, it is not likely that you will remain immune to the excitement.
Indeed, there is such an acute expression of peril etched on the boy's face and reflected by his every movement as he flees death in the crumbling house that one experiences an overwhelming anxiety for his safety.
Film critic Dennis Schwartz discussed the noir aspects of the film and wrote "The city slum is pictured as not an easy place to raise a child, as there appears no safe place to play.
Though the times have changed, this taut tale nevertheless remains gripping and realistic. The modern city is not any less dangerous than the postwar years of the s undoubtedly even more dangerous.
This film noir thriller exploits the meaning of the American dream to work hard for all the material things that were becoming available and ultimately find a utopia in the suburbs, as it cries out for the children left to their own devices to survive in such harsh surroundings as their parents have become too busy to raise them properly.
TV Guide praised the film and wrote " The Window presents a frightening vision of helplessness, vividly conveying childish frustration at being dismissed or ignored by one's parents.
Director and onetime cameraman Tetzlaff adroitly injects a maximum of suspense into the film, enabling the audience to identify with Driscoll's predicament and to view his parents as evil, almost as evil as the murderers themselves.
Having photographed Hitchcock's Notorious just three years before, Tetzlaff had, without a shadow of a doubt, learned something of his suspense-building craft from the master of that art as did just about every working director An exceptional film.

The Widow had an excellent start that immediately grabbed me. She did. The Widow is not a novel where the crime is revealed up front, thankfully.
I even liked that the chapters skipped around, never in chronological order. The Widow had resonance. This was a great debut from Barton, and her experience in journalism came through.
She offered insight into the world of breaking news media with a naturalness that can only come from a creature in their own element.
I thoroughly enjoyed this work and would read another from her. Easily four stars. View all 10 comments. Feb 01, Erin rated it liked it.
The Widow just has a simmering sense of dread through out the entire book. The reason I didn't give it 4 stars is because the characters weren't very deep.
I didn't really feel connected to any of the characters in the book. The one character I felt closest to is Bella and we never actually get to meet her.
If you like psychological thrillers I would recommend it but there are way better ones out there. View all 6 comments. Giving it 4 stars versus 3 though, so that says something.
I really wish publishers would stop doing this. Yes, it piques my interest, but I find myself looking for the correlation and it's typically lacking like in this case.
This is a good read, but really not comparable to those two. Second, I didn't like one single character 3. Second, I didn't like one single character in the whole story.
Not even the hard working detective who's soul got sucked away by this case. Third, I found the jumping around between chapters to be confusing.
Each chapter was dated, and often would jump from present time to the past. I had to go back to the start of each chapter many times to confirm which time frame it was in.
I changed my mind about who was involved several times. First I was sympathetic, then I was frustrated, then angry, etc. I think it's a worthy read and I do recommend-the author has a unique voice, and I will be looking for more of her work.
ARC provided by Netgalley-many thanks! View all 9 comments. Not much blood though. He would've been glad.
He didn't like any sort of mess. Jean's husband Glen, a cold controlling man with a penchant for porn, is accused of abducting Bella Elliot the gorgeous toddler daughter of Donna.
Jean, ever the dutiful wife, stands by her man despite the things she discovers about him along the way. After Glen's death, everyone wants to talk to 'the widow', sure she knows more than she let on, hopeful that she will reveal all now that Glen is not there to control her.
The dispassionate style of writing only serves to emphasise the awfulness of what has happened. All the time I was reading I could feel a sinister undercurrent - like there was something going on that I was unaware of; that Jean or Jeanie as she is sometimes , knew or had done something that she wasn't telling us about.
But until the end, I had no idea what it was. I became immersed in this book, totally. I wanted to get to the end to find out what happens, but I wanted it never to end.
This is a beautifully written debut book and I look forward to reading more from Fiona Barton. I have been a journalist - senior writer at the Daily Mail, news editor at the Daily Telegraph, and chief reporter at The Mail on Sunday, where I won Reporter of the Year at the National Press Awards, gave up my job to volunteer in Sri Lanka and since , have trained and worked with exiled and threatened journalists all over the world.
But through it all, a story was cooking in my head. The worm of this book infected me long ago when, as a national newspaper journalist covering notorious crimes and trials, I found myself wondering what the wives of those accused really knew — or allowed themselves to know.
It took the liberation of my career change to turn that fascination into a tale of a missing child, narrated by the wife of the man suspected of the crime, the detective leading the hunt, the journalist covering the case and the mother of the victim.
Much to my astonishment and delight, The Widow is available now in the UK, and around the world in the coming months.
However, the sudden silence of my characters feels like a reproach and I am currently working on a second book. My husband and I are living the good life in south-west France, where I am writing in bed, early in the morning when the only distraction is our cockerel, Sparky, crowing.

I probably should have read the blurb more carefully, but the title in fairness does not suggest child abduction.
But that means that The Widow was up against some pretty stiff competition. Her husband Glenn has recently been run over by a bus, and the narrative recounts the events leading up to the accident.
From early on, we find out that Glenn has been accused of abducting 2 year old Bella. Occasionally, we also see things through the eyes of an eager journalist and a frustrated police officer.
As I said, I found it kind of flat — the reveal at the end felt more like a fizzle than a dramatic finish. On the plus side, there is no explicit violence.
Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for an opportunity to read an advance copy. Toddler Bella Elliott goes missing from the front yard of her home on an otherwise uneventful day.
When the ensuing investigation leads to a seemingly unlikely suspect, everyone involved is put on display in the search for the truth and the missing child.
And to say much of it is unflattering is an understatement, especially after the primary suspect is killed in a bizarre accident.
The story is told in alternating points of view from the lead detective, a key reporter, the mother and the wife of Toddler Bella Elliott goes missing from the front yard of her home on an otherwise uneventful day.
The story is told in alternating points of view from the lead detective, a key reporter, the mother and the wife of the suspect there are a couple of others who only have one scene.
It's also presented using flashbacks, a device I normally enjoy but here it was confusing, primarily because of the multiple points of view and it didn't follow a coherent path.
In spite of this, I found the story interesting and many of the characters equally disagreeable and compelling. The role of the media in these circumstances is also an important part of the plot, leaving the reader to decide the merits of what they do.
The narration was very well done and I found the use of multiple performers essential, especially given the alternating points of view and flashbacks.
I think my experience would have been less enjoyable if I'd read the book. This was an interesting and disturbing story, not just because of the subject matter but the disappointing behaviors of most of those involved.
It cuts too closely to reality. View all 17 comments. Jul 11, Carol added it Shelves: debut , audio-books.
Do not expect either. What convinced me I wanted to read or listen to in this case was the question of how a person can stay in a marriage when the spouse has committed an unspeakable, appalling act.
Jeanie, do not call her Jean, has to face the possibility that her husband Glen in addition to being guilty of viewing internet pornography may also be the pedophile that abducted and possibly murdered Bella.
There is no body and Jeanie hopes and prays that Bella will be found. Can she stay married to a man who might have abducted a child and done something horrible to her?
But Glen loves children. We eventually learn what truly happened using a plot development told in shifting time frames and the five character narratives of The Widow, The Detective, The Reporter, The Husband, and The Mother.
Could she continue to stand by him knowing that he might have done just that? The Widow is not fast paced but a good psychological study and surprised me in the end, satisfying this reader.
The Widow stands on well it's own merits. It was an enjoyable book and a really good listen. Jun 08, Barbara rated it liked it Shelves: challenge.
As it happens Glen was the prime suspect in the disappearance of a two-year-old girl, Bella Elliot, who was kidnapped from an English suburb several years ago and never found.
Arrested and tried at the time, Glen got off because of a flawed police investigation. Glen's death reminds the public of his alleged misdeeds and his widow, Jean Taylor, is once again hounded by the p 3.
Glen's death reminds the public of his alleged misdeeds and his widow, Jean Taylor, is once again hounded by the press.
Jean agrees to be interviewed by reporter Kate Waters, who's thrilled to be getting the scoop. The story is told from rotating points of view including the widow; the reporter; the detective, Bob Sparks; and Bella's mother, Dawn Elliot.
As the tale unfolds we learn that Glen was addicted to online porn, especially images of child abuse or pretend child abuse, with women dressed as underage girls.
Glen was also a manipulative, narcissistic husband who seemed able to con his wife into thinking he was a decent guy who had her best interests at heart Jean seems to be incredibly naive and self-effacing.
She realizes Glen's doing something not quite kosher when he shuts himself up with his computer, but she calls it "Glen's nonsense" and pushes it out of her mind.
Jean is desperate to have a baby, but tests reveal that Glen is sterile - and he won't even consider adoption.
Given Jean's obsession with children one would think she'd insist Glen change his mind or get lost, but Jean just makes excuses for her husband and hangs in there.
Throughout the police investigation and trial Jean apparently believes in her husband's innocence and supports him. Detective Bob Sparks is convinced Glen is guilty though there are some other possible suspects.
Bob is crushed by Glen's acquittal, is haunted by the mystery of Bella's disappearance, and - despite instructions from his superiors - can't let go of the case.
Journalist Kate is thrilled with the opportunity to interview Jean and quickly squirrels the widow away, to hide her from other reporters.
Kate is convinced she's going to squeeze 'the true story' out of Jean now that Glen isn't around Bella's mother Dawn beats herself up for leaving the child unsupervised in the yard 'for just a couple of minutes.
As the tale unfolded I wasn't sure who to believe, and I suspected one character after another of being the kidnapper.
The resolution of the story is believable but - to be completely honest - I would have liked more shock and awe.
This is a good psychological suspense novel, recommended to fans of the genre. View all 8 comments. Fiona Barton has been one of those authors I have wanted to read for awhile.
I really enjoyed the third book and decided to go back and catch up on what I missed. Definitely love her writing style and can't wait to read the second book.
Jean Taylor and her husband were thrust into the spotlight after Glen was suspected of committing a crime.
Des 3. Despite all of the harassment the couple received, Jean stood by her husband. Now that he is dead, she's thinking about telling her story.
Will reporter Kate Waters finally uncover the truth? There are things that happen in this book that are briefly mentioned in the third book so I did have a basic idea going in how the story was going to go.
So yes, it is a bit of a different reading experience when you are reading books in a series out of order. For that reason, I obviously enjoyed the story more for the characters rather than the mystery or suspense elements.
I do enjoy how the author uses multiple characters to tell the story rather than just one. Definitely recommend as a solid read.

Once I finished this book, I had to let it settle in my mind for a little while. So, in conclusion, I would strongly urge those fans of suspense and psychological thrillers, to approach this book with an open mind, and allow it to stand on its own merits, which it is quite capable of doing without further comparisons.
This review is the copyrighted property of Night Owl Reviews. Dec 19, Elaine rated it it was ok. I really liked the premise of this read and had high hopes for it.
It is the story of Jean Taylor whose husband Glen is the suspect of a horrific crime. We have all seen women like Jean on the news, standing beside their husbands on the court steps, looking supportive, being their rocks.
But, what is going on inside their minds? It seemed like a pleasan I really liked the premise of this read and had high hopes for it.
The story starts off very strongly and I enjoyed it at first but to be honest it fizzles out pretty quickly. It is told from multiple viewpoints, including that of a detective Bob Sparkes and a newspaper reporter Kate.
She comes across as very nondescript, dull and boring. I could picture her dressed in beige. I also had great trouble in believing that she was only 39 years old, she seemed to act and talk like someone much older.
I think that could partly be blamed on her name as well. After a while the story does start to drag a bit, especially with the overlap in some of the different viewpoints.

I've read both and this book doesn't resemble either of them, remotely. It's a debut book for Fiona Barton. Interesting that she chose to focus on the wife and then widow of the accused child kidnapper and perhaps killer.
The point of view flipped between the widow, the cop, the journalist, the mother of the missing girl, and the widow's husband.
Stil I wish booksellers and reviewers would stop comparing each and every thriller with a slight twist of plot to Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train.
Still not sure if this head-hopping really works, since the whole idea of the book was seeing it from the widow's point of view and the other characters were wooden and one-dimensional.
The book is only okay for me. It was easy to follow, a fast paced read. But the characters were kind of flat. I was propelled along only by the morbid curiosity of what was going to pop out of the box at the end rather than caring about any of the players.
Sadly, the ending wasn't much of a surprise either! A husband who was suspected of committing a deplorable crime some years ago. As the story unfolds showcasing the past and present, the reader learns more about more about the relationship between husband and wife, the crime he was accused of and the actions of Jean Taylor and her character.
Despite the rapid page-turning aspect of this novel, I 3. Despite the rapid page-turning aspect of this novel, I can't say I always enjoyed the story arc because of the often sheer ugliness of the subject matter.
A friend of mine referred to it as distasteful and she has a definite point as there are times it felt uncomfortable to the max, however, there's no doubt that I was addicted to discovering the absolute truth of the crime.
Did he do it? Did she know? The Widow was read by my local book club and there was a definite mix of those who were not entirely enamoured with the story and those who very much enjoyed.
It's alternating between past and present and contains short chapters. Overall, it was an okay read and hope you like it more than me despite the sensitive subject matter.

The Widow is a standalone, psychological thriller written by seasoned journalist and now fiction writer: Fiona Barton.
The inspiration for this debut novel stemmed from all the people on the edge of high profile crimes: the wives, the parents, the children of the perpetrators.
Barton recognized that these individuals are often just as affected by events, but all the focus is elsewhere. She often wondered what they knew and what they should have known.
So she gained further inspiration from d The Widow is a standalone, psychological thriller written by seasoned journalist and now fiction writer: Fiona Barton.
So she gained further inspiration from documented criminal cases as well as her own imagination and wrote a story about the widow of a man found guilty of a horrible crime.
The story is told through the perspectives of five different characters and the time frames fluctuate from present to past and back again.
In The Widow , Ms. Barton wrote about a parent's worst nightmare and the investigation that ensues. She wrote about the alleged perpetrator and the submissive little wife that stayed by his side.
She wrote about the behavior and tactics used in journalism to score the coveted story. But ultimately, she wrote about power dynamics in relationships, whether it's between a husband and wife or a journalist and subject.
Is the dominant personality really the one in charge? When all is said and done, who actually holds the power?
The Widow is layered with complex characters who may end up surprising you. This was a good book and I enjoyed it a great deal.
Check it out! My favorite quote: "He looks like the bloke next door. But then monsters rarely look the part. You hope you'll be able to see the evil shining out of them - it would make police work a damn sight easier.
But evil was a slippery substance, glimpsed only occasionally and all the more horrifying for that.

When I started to read this book, I hadn't read any previous reviews. I didn't realize that this is the authors debut book.
Ignorance is bliss Until I started reading it and got messages like.. But if its from some reviewers who I know is 'spot on' then it makes all the difference and I got some of those, so I thought I have to honestly say that I am gobsmacked this is Fiona Barton's When I started to read this book, I hadn't read any previous reviews.
I have to honestly say that I am gobsmacked this is Fiona Barton's debut book. It has class, it has all the elements of a brilliant thriller, its paced well, the characters are 'real' you can actually reach out and touch them.
I don't know what I can say about this story that hasn't already been said without giving the plot away, but I will try.
At first, Jean came across to me as a weak flimsy wife. A woman who had no control over her life and she did everything her husband told her.
Her husband Glen is found to be a porn addict. He excuses himself and goes off to another room in the house a lot.
He likes cyber sex and woman dressed as young children. A child goes missing. Is Glen the person who took her?
Is Glens sexual addiction, kinky and worrying taken him onto paths leading to bigger crimes? Did Jean know? Jean believed in her husband, she stood by him, its unbelievable he would do "such a thing".
When Jeanie finds out Glen explains "Its not real Jeanie, its fantasy, these are women in their 30s dressing up as children" They said so in court so it has to be true right?
Jean is not convinced at first "They do this for men who want to do this to children" Its sick right? Jean thinks maybe its a man's 'way', its just a 'man thing' But Bella the little girl is still missing.
Jeanie had a secret obsession. She wanted a baby but couldn't have one because of Glen. Glens way of dealing with any problems in life is But Jeanie has an obsession This being Fiona Barton's first book is amazing, this is certainly someone I will be following.
I have connected with her on Facebook and Twitter. And I have found her webpage. No, news updates for future books! I know I did.
Nov 14, Malia rated it liked it Shelves: mystery-suspense. I really wanted this one to live up to my high expectations - I bought the hardback, after all!
Unfortunately, while the writing was good, the story felt a bit slow paced, considering the gripping premise, and I never really connected with the characters.
The conclusion, too, didn't come as a surprise. Still, this did not read like a debut novel, Barton can clearly write, and I will keep an eye on her future work.
It was decent, it kept me listening, but somehow it was not fulfilling. There were twists and turns but most of them I saw coming.
I did enjoy the alternating chapters and the voicing by the cast, but really? As far as thrillers go, this just wasn't that Libraries RULE!
