Hillary's January 2015 pick
The Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins
Next time someone asks me for a book like Gone Girl, I'll be handing that customer a copy of Paula Hawkins' The Girl on the Train.
The Girl on the Train is the literary equivalent of a Hitchcock film, a dark, compulsive, character-driven read. Rachel's life has come undone. Alcoholic, unemployed, and dumped by her husband for his pregnant mistress, she spends her days pointlessly riding the train into London and back again.
Pointless, that is, except the journey takes Rachel past the row of Victorian townhouses where she used to live. Hungrily peering into the backyards and rear windows of her old neighborhood, Rachel has become obsessed with one apparently perfect couple.
Megan and Scott are beautiful, happy - living the life Rachel once dreamed of. But when Megan goes missing, the veneer of perfection peels away. Beneath lie adultery, drug addiction, spousal abuse, and murder - secrets that someone is willing to kill to protect. --Hillary
“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!”
