Rear Window meets Gone Girl, in this exceptional and startling psychological thriller

'Gripping, enthralling - a top-notch thriller and a compulsive read'
S J WATSON, bestselling author of Before I Go To Sleep

Rachel catches the same commuter train every morning. She knows it will wait at the same signal each time, overlooking a row of back gardens. She’s even started to feel like she knows the people who live in one of the houses. ‘Jess and Jason’, she calls them. Their life – as she sees it – is perfect. If only Rachel could be that happy.

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough.

Now everything’s changed. Now Rachel has a chance to become a part of the lives she’s only watched from afar.

Now they’ll see; she’s much more than just the girl on the train…

    I read this book in just two days - I literally could not put it down. I felt compelled to read “just to the end of this chapter” ....... then the next one............

    It was a good read until Megan narrated her own death scene!! Dead people are dead, they don’t narrate their own death in the past tense.

    This book is an absolute 'must read'. I started reading this book as soon as I received it from iTunes and finished it the same day. I could not put it down, it had me gripped from start to finish. Sheila - October 2017

  • What a story

    By Stab the man
    Haven't read a book for such a long time but after hearing and reading the reviews about the girl on the train, downloaded it and it exceeded my expectations, great story line and kept me in suspense till the end. Couldn't put the story down. Can't wait to down her next book.
  • Never judge a book by its cover!

    By Rooney12346789
    I read this book not long after the film came out and it introduced me to a new world, a world where anything was possible. Anybody could be a threat and nobody's life got any easier. The author grasps your attention right from the beginning and they never let go! This book gives an amazing message which is 'never judge a book by its cover.'
  • Dull, long and disinteresting

    By Frfviufhrhurfuhrhufr
    Title says it all
  • A gripping read

    By Gizmo13i3
    I found this book gripping and fast paced, however I did solve the mystery early on. Despite that it was still an enjoyable read.
