The Girl on the Train (Large Print / Hardcover)
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." ~ Jackie— Jackie, Tattered Cover Historic LoDo

“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!”

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.
