Since some of us can't afford to live in the city, we commute from all parts of the Bay Area to Nextbit HQ in San Francisco. To pass the hour-long (and then some) travel time, we're either on our phone or we've got our noses buried in a book. For those of us who ride the BART every day, we started a book club! We had a few choices, but ended up selecting The Girl on the Train.
EVERY DAY THE SAME Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. 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.
UNTIL TODAY 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 goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
The #1 New York Times Bestseller, USA Today Book of the Year, soon to be a major motion picture.
The debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people's lives.

“Gone Girl fans will devour this psychological thriller.”—People
