A debut psychological thriller about a woman who becomes emotionally entangled in a murder investigation because of something she witnesses on her daily commute.

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and every night. Every day she rattles over the same track junctions, flashes past the same stretch of cozy suburban homes. And every day she stops at the same signal and she sees the same couple, breakfasting on their roof deck, living the perfect life that Rachel craves for herself?a lifestyle she recently lost. She looks forward to observing this household every morning, even makes up names and narratives for its residents. Then one day Rachel sees someone new in their garden, and soon after, the woman who lived there disappears.

Unable to keep this information to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and in the process is drawn into the lives of the couple she thought of as Jason and Jess but whose names?she has learned from the news?are really Megan and Scott Hipwell.

But the police accuse Rachel of being unreliable, and it?s true that her memories can?t always be trusted. Plus there are the stories that her ex-husband?s new wife has been spreading about her. By the time Megan?s body is found, Rachel is in over her head, intricately entangled in the details of the investigation, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she put others in danger? Has she done more harm than good?

A compulsively readable, emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller that draws comparisons to Gone Girl, The Silent Wife, or Before I Go to Sleep, this is an electrifying debut embraced by readers across markets and categories.

I thought this was going to be a little different than how it was. However.....I could not put it down. I finished it in 5 days. I don't want to give anything away, so I will not say anymore. I would recommend it.

Ended up reading the first 100pages in my first sit down with the book! So hard to put down! I love the style and layout of the story line - Gets you engaged with the characters! There were times when I had to remember theses were not real people - Ms. Hawkins did an incredible job!
