There's A Lot of Buzz Around This Debut Thriller. Is This The New "Gone Girl"? Jackie Thinks It Might Be.


A debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people's lives.

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—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. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

Jackie says:
"There is not a single reliable narrator in this book.  NONE.  And that's what makes things very, very interesting.  Exes, wives, husbands, parents, drunks, peepers, lovers, cheaters, babies, psychiatrists, and trains are all stirred up into a very engrossing stew of lies and truths and what they all chose to take from all of that.  It's quite a neighborhood.  Jump into the fray of this debut thriller--I think you'll like it."

The more I read about this book the more I realize I'm probably going to have to buy it.
