Good Neighbors (but are they?), by Ryan David Jahn.

While residents, each involved in his or her own (hypnotically rendered) drama, watch through apartment windows, a woman is stabbed to death in the complex’s courtyard below.   Yes, Kitty Genovese’s 1964 murder is part of the author’s inspiration for this, his compulsively readable first novel.  Just as the action in this novel unfolds during 2 quite busy early-morning hours, the book itself could be read in 2 (quiet) early-morning, afternoon, or evening hours.
