Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.
And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
This book left me speechless. I have to say that I had very high expectations when it came to this psychological thriller because of all of the coverage it had been getting. Every way I turned, I would see it perched on a shelf. In supermarkets and book stores. And I wanted it. There’s something about the cover that immediately draws you in before you even know what the book is about, and that line:
Buy The Girl on the Train here on Amazon! Or feel free to pick it up at your local supermarket (Sainsbury’s, Asda, or Tesco!)
