#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
GOODREADS CHOICE AWARD WINNER FOR MYSTERY/THRILLER
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 authors—think Gillian Flynn and Megan Abbott—who 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.

Four or five characters narrating; very difficult to follow with a let down ending.
Thrilling and even better than GIRL ON THE TRAIN
I received an ARC to review this title and I am so glad to have gotten an early look at this book. It is very thrilling and the characters are flawed and so, so real. One of best books of the year for sure. This is much better than Paula Hawkins previous book, and I loved Girl on the Train.
(Special thanks to Riverhead books for proving me with an advanced copy for review purposes)
This is the first book I will not be able to finish. Incredibly hard to follow. Jumping characters and from 1st to 3rd person, it’s way too confusing. Such a let down, the girl on the train was so much better.
