The girl on the train

The girl on the train

Hawkins, Paula, author

Rachel catches the same commuter train every morning. She knows it will wait at the same signal each time, overlooking a row of back gardens. She's even started to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. 'Jess and Jason', she calls them. Their life - as she sees it - is perfect. If only Rachel could be that happy. And then she sees something shocking. It's only a minute until the train moves on, but it's enough. Now everything's changed. Now Rachel has a chance to become a part of the lives she's only watched from afar. Now they'll see: she's much more than just the girl on the train

Reviews

"Really great suspense novel. Kept me up most of the night. The alcoholic narrator is dead perfect."
STEPHEN KING||"My vote for unreliable narrator of the year"
The Times||"The thriller scene will have to up its game if it's to match Hawkins this year"
Observer||"Hawkins's taut story roars along at the pace of, well, a high-speed train . . . a smart, searing thriller'"
Good Housekeeping (US)||"The Girl On The Trainwas so thrilling and tense and wildly unpredictable, it sucked up my entire afternoon. I simply could not put it down. Not to be missed!"
Tess Gerritsen
