Staff Reviews

The Girl on the Train is about love, life, regret, death and finally memory. Rachel is the girl who watches life go by her every day as she rides the train, looking out the window to a life she has lost. She wallows in the love for her ex, the regret of her actions and in the memory of what she saw. Lies and memories intertwine with narratives that cannot be trusted. You don’t ever really like any of them, as they are as flawed as life itself. You hope in the end that Rachel finds some peace and survives the things she will remember.

“This is one of the most compelling thrillers I have read in years! With alternating perspectives ranging from the fantasies of a young woman who watches a couple from the window of her train commute every day, to the true story of the couple themselves, and a missing person case, the reader is plunged into a twisting, turning mystery of deception and misdirection. Rarely have there been so many shocking revelations in a single novel! Just when you believe you have a grasp on the entire mystery, Hawkins pulls the rug out from under you with yet another breathtaking plot revelation. An exceptional read!”
— William Carl, Books On The Square, Providence, RI


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.
