it was amazing

Rachel Watson rides the train every day to her non-existent job outside London. Recently divorced (her husband cheated) depressed, and an alcoholic, she continues this ruse so her landlady won't know she was fired from her job. Rachel's husband is now married to his mistress, Anna, and they have a baby, adding to Rachel's misery. Each day the train passes her former home, as well as the home of an apparently loving couple whom Rachel has assigned fictional names. When Rachel sees something from the train window that shocks her, and when later the female she has observed goes missing, Rachel decides to go the police. Unfortunately Rachel is not considered a reliable witness. The story unfolds in the voices of Rachel, Anna, and Megan (the missing lady), and as the suspense builds, nothing is as it seems. This is a real page turner, well written and plotted. The ending was surprising but satisfying.
