Rachel is a mess and slowly we find out just how much and why. We follow her on her daily commute to and from London and as she watches two particular houses along the tracks. In one lives a couple whom she's names Jess and Jason, in the other... we don't talk about that one. Not yet.
J & J seem to have it all. They look madly in love and perfect. One day however Rachel sees something she can't unsee and when "Jess" shortly thereafter goes missing in the local news, Rachel knows she has to talk with the police. But like I said, she's a mess, so who will hear her out?
The story unravels into this amazingly twisted tale that completely ensnared me. I love the writing, I love the wit and the despair. Rachel has hit bottom and isn't really too keen on going anywhere, but she's pulled into something much larger than herself and has no choice in the matter. Nobody seem to be what they are supposed to and Rachel has too many black holes in her memories that needs to be filled.
