About the Book

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and every evening. Each day she passes the same Victorian terraced houses, stops at the same signal, and sees the same couple breakfasting on their roof terrace. Jason and Jess seem so happy together.

If only Rachel could be happy…Then one day, staring from her train into other people’s lives, Rachel is shocked to see something she shouldn’t have seen. And when the woman she has seen goes missing, all eyes turn on Rachel.

Now she can’t trust anyone. Not even herself…

This is a gripping and enthralling thriller which will keep you turning the pages.

Paula Hawkins worked as a journalist for fifteen years before turning her hand to fiction. She was born and brought up in Zimbabwe, but moved to London in 1989 and has lived there ever since. The Girl On The Train is her first thriller.
