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?
Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.
Mind Boggling Thrilling Mystery! Don’t Miss It!
“Just exactly who the “crazy” person is in this story was the puzzle from the beginning! Was what was being said “real” or a “dream” or “a mix of imagination and reality?” And wow! It just kept getting better. . . and in the end, I was still wondering who was crazed, who was the killer, who was the victim, who was the truth teller! Can’t beat that for an exciting listen. The narration was excellent, with great voices for all the characters imparted by the various performers. All were easy to listen to and added much to the depth of the characters. The story itself defies much reviewing since most statements would be a giveaway to the plot. It is good. Very good.”
