“Nothing is much more addicting than The Girl for the Train.”—Vanity Fair
“The Girl within the Train has more pleasant with unreliable narration than any chiller since Gone Girl. . . . [It] is liable to attract a large, bedazzled readership.”—The New York Times
“Like its train, the story plot blasts throughout the stagnation of such lives in suburban London and also the reader cannot help but turn pages.”—The Boston Globe
“Gone Girl fans will devour this psychological thriller.”—People
A debut psychological thriller that can forever affect the way you gaze at other people’s lives.
Rachel takes a similar commuter train every day. Every day she rattles on the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops with the signal which allows her to daily watch the identical couple breakfasting for their deck. She’s even begun to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike everything she recently lost.
And then she sees something shocking. It’s merely a minute till the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to ensure that it stays to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to your police, and becomes inextricably entwined with what happens next, and the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
Compulsively readable, The Girl around the Train is surely an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller along with an electrifying debut.
