I liked the fact that I live in Rochester and it was so accurate on the local details!! Good story line, actually didn’t figure it out until the end.

I listened to this audio book every chance I had. Work breaks, in the car and working in the garden. A great read/listen. Waiting for the ending but never wanting it to end. Colorful characters and surprises around every corner. Not my typical book, but it was really good. I hope to see a sequel.

Audie Award, Audiobook of the Year, 2016. 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.
