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. Shes even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their lifeas she sees itis perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.
And then she sees something shocking. Its only a minute until the train moves on, but its enough. Now everythings 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?
If you enjoy excessive detail and a slow paced storywhich I guess is British then this is a book for you. I listened to the unabridged version which was very painful for mewould have never gotten through the hardcover version. I enjoy a faster pace and detail that is important to the plot. I would recommend that if your tastes are similar to mine that you look for an abridged version of the abridged version. I dont get the high rating. I must be shallow minded but I do enjoy a good book and this definitely was not one of them.
