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?
#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 and A Slow Fire Burning. 

“Hawkins is at the forefront of a group of female authorsthink Gillian Flynn and Megan Abbottwho 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.
Ein schreckliches Verbrechen. Drei verdächtige Frauen. Ist eine von ihnen fähig zu töten? Der neue Spannungsroman von Weltbestsellerautorin Paula Hawkins!

Auf einem Hausboot in London wird die Leiche eines brutal ermordeten jungen Mannes gefunden. Besonders drei Frauen geraten danach ins Visier der Ermittlungen.
Laura, die aufgewühlt wirkende junge Frau, die nach einem One-Night-Stand mit dem Opfer zuletzt am Tatort gesehen wurde. Carla, die Tante des Opfers, bereits in tiefer Trauer, weil sie nur Wochen zuvor eine Angehörige verlor. Und Miriam, die neugierige Nachbarin, die als Erste auf die blutige Leiche stieß und etwas vor der Polizei zu verbergen scheint.
Drei Frauen, die einander kaum kennen, mit ganz unterschiedlichen Beziehungen zum Opfer. Drei Frauen, die aus verschiedenen Gründen zutiefst verbittert sind. Die auf unterschiedliche Weise Vergeltung suchen für das ihnen angetane Unrecht. Wenn es um Rache geht, sind selbst gute Menschen zu schrecklichen Taten fähig. Wie weit würde jede einzelne von ihnen gehen, um Frieden zu finden? Wie lange können Geheimnisse im Verborgenen schwelen, bevor sie in Flammen aufgehen?

»Hawkins will unterhalten, und das gelingt ihr. [...] Weil ein guter Krimi immer auch ein Gesellschaftsroman ist, reflektiert Hawkins die Lebensentwürfe von Frauen.« Der Spiegel
