Girl on the Train
Rachel commutes to work every day on the same train, stopping at the same places, seeing the same faces. She has become enamoured with the lives of two people she watches through the window on her way to work- 'the golden couple'- whom she calls Jess and Jason.
Imagining what life would be like in what appears to be such a perfect relationship takes Rachel's mind off of her own problems. Recently divorced, she has been drowning her sorrows in alcohol, to the point where it has cost her her job.
Then she sees something that changes everything.
Her illusion shattered, she insinuates herself into the lives of her 'perfect' couple after Megan, aka 'Jess', goes missing- and cannot rest until the mystery is solved.
Told from the point of view of three female narrators: Rachel, Megan and Anna, The Girl on the Train is all about the secrets people keep and what really happens behind closed doors. Between the alcoholic, the liar and the adulteress, you never know who to believe, and you will be guessing right up until the very end.
