Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Each day it rattles down the track and stops at the signal that allows her to watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. Their life seems 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. Unable to keep it to herself‚ Rachel offers what she knows to the police. Has she done more harm than good?


Customer Reviews

"Psychologically astute debut . . . The surprise-packed narratives hurtle toward a stunning climax, horrifying as a train wreck and just as riveting."

— Publishers Weekly, starred

“[A] chilling, assured debut. . . . Even the most astute readers will be in for a shock as Hawkins slowly unspools the facts, exposing the harsh realities of love and obsession's inescapable links to violence.”

— Kirkus Reviews

“The Girl on the Train marries movie noir with novelistic trickery . . . hang on tight. You'll be surprised by what horrors lurk around the bend.”

— USA Today
