A debut psychological thriller that may forever affect the way a person looks at other people’s lives.

She’s even started feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike lifespan she recently lost.
And then she sees something shocking. It’s a minute before the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to make it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows towards the police, and becomes inextricably entwined using what happens next, and the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
Compulsively readable, The Girl about the Train is undoubtedly an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller plus an electrifying debut.
