The Girl on the Train is the story of Rachel Watson’s life post divorce. Every day, she takes the train in to work in New York, and every day the train passes by her old house where her ex-husband still lives with his new wife and child. As she attempts to not focus on her pain, she starts watching a couple who live a few houses down the track- Megan and Scott Hipwell. She creates a wonderful dream life for them in her head, about how they are a perfect happy family. And then one day, as the train passes, she sees something shocking, filling her rage. The next day she wakes up with a horrible hangover with no memory of the night before. Then  the TV reports Megan Hipwell is missing… Rachel finds herself implicated ……….
