    #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

    An addictive new novel of psychological suspense from the author of #1 New York Times bestseller and global phenomenon The Girl on the Train


    “Hawkins is at the forefront of a group of female authorsthink Gillian Flynn and Megan Abbottwho have reinvigorated the literary suspense novel by tapping a rich vein of psychological menace and social unease… there’s a certain solace to a dark escape, in the promise of submerged truths coming to light.” Vogue

    A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged.
     
    Left behind is a lonely fifteen-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother's sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from—a place to which she vowed she'd never return.
     
    With the same propulsive writing and acute understanding of human instincts that captivated millions of readers around the world in her explosive debut thriller, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins delivers an urgent, twisting, deeply satisfying read that hinges on the deceptiveness of emotion and memory, as well as the devastating ways that the past can reach a long arm into the present.
     
    Beware a calm surface—you never know what lies beneath.

      Great all the way till the end. Character development superb. Should be a major motion picture. Looking forward to Paula's next book.

      I never got into this book. Between the endless characters and few connections among them, it was very difficult to get into a rhythm. I found this incredibly boring.
    • Good Read...2nd book always gets over critiqued

      To be truthful, I had doubts whether this second novel would stand on its own. It did. Hawkins is such an elegant writer. The multi cast of 10 characters was not not as difficult to assemble as you would think (if in doubt, think about Tolstoy's WIP cast of characters, lol). It flows well and after the first 50 pages, I couldn't put the book down. Well done.
    • So-so

      For as much hype as this book is getting, I was disappointed. Overall it was a so-so book with some periods more entertaining than others.

      I loved Girl on the Train so I was excited about this book. However, it is so hard to follow with far too many narrators.... I am a quarter through and I'm stopping.

      I enjoyed reading this book although it started off a little slow in the beginning. The characters are complex but interesting . Very eerie read which I love ! I could live without the paranormal aspect of this book. Nicki Sage seemed useless in this book .
    • Great book could have used some tweaks

      I am a huge fan of the Girl on the Train and this book has many similarities. Telling the story in different prospectives especially outside of first person was a bit hard to follow but besides that the storyline was great and the story kept you guessing. However, I will say the ending could've been a little better as it was a let down and very predictable compared to the rest of the book.
    • Great book!

      I was so looking forward to another Girl on a Train. This book is so difficult to follow. It is boring and a total waste of money. I am struggling to finish it.
