The doctor approaches again and peers more closely at the wound. We used to. The man looks at him expressionlessly. Maybe that was the moment when things started to go wrong, the moment when I imagined us no longer a couple, but a family; and after that, once I had that picture in my head, just the two of us could never be enough. Megan and Scott argued on Saturday evening.
Jan 13, Pages. Aug 23, Minutes. Jan 13, Minutes. 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. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost. 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? Commuters are the same the world over: And we crane our necks to try to get a better look. I grew up in suburban Harare, in southern Africa, a place where commuting is done by car.
People like me—white and affluent—lived in houses set back behind walls and gates and gardens; our lives hidden from passersby. So when I moved to London, at age seventeen, this sort of big-city commute, this cheek-by-jowl living, was utterly new to me, and I found it fascinating. You know these people. You like these people. You could be friends. Loneliness and isolation can be as much a part of city life as the daily commute, certainly this is the case for Rachel, the protagonist of The Girl on the Train.
Her fall from grace has been sudden, she has slipped bewilderingly quickly from happiness to despair. In her desperation to fill the space left by the life she once had, she feels herself to be forming a connection with a couple she sees from her train every day.
These strangers have become so familiar to her that she feels as though she knows them, understands them; she constructs a whole narrative around them, she befriends them in her head. In fact, she has no clue about their real lives, so she has no idea what she is stumbling into when, having seen something out of the ordinary, something shocking, she makes the fateful decision to cross a line, from voyeur to active participant in their story.

Read An Excerpt. Everything and nothing. LEXI Impressionists? LEXI You always find the best women in the impressionist wing.. I notice a slight stiffness to her step. Can Superman get it up in the face of imperfection? We met at the museum. Lexi watches him over her burrito. He takes a bite of burrito.
LEXI Ah. He looks at her.
LEXI How can you be sure? Suddenly she was perfected by her imperfections. But in this province of dead egg and biopsied flesh. And I know that sex and love are just animal things. We will move together into the bright haze. I will come to love her cancer scars. Lexi studies him under the brightening skies.
I will wake up with her and not be surprised to find myself there. In that moment. She joins him in looking out at the ever-mutating currents. How can I have changed so completely? Is continuity of identity some hoax we play on ourselves? Saint Jude was always my favorite. I know that if I ran into her a year later.
She liked the idea that each one was there to serve some earthly purpose. I would see a woman among women. Where once her imperfections particularized her. She smiles. LEXI continuing He had the ability to become whoever he needed to be. He fought in the resistance.
But there was a condition. I agreed to help her out with Pruitt. He saved many lives. He looks at her for a long beat.. LEXI This is how it ends for him. Danny and Lexi look at each other. But he survived again. She turns away.. The old man seems to focus briefly on them. He tattooed an S. His whole history only exists in the stories I remember.
LEXI looking at him I need you to do this for me. When his unit was sent to massacre a village on the eastern front. Martin betraying little as he studies Danny. She was real good with stories. LEXI Ammunition. Alphabet City on the Lower East Side. She never actually mentioned divorce.
About a week in. A few people mill about desultorily or engage in conversation. He looks down at the mug shot. That was the first time you ever saw James Fenatree? The two men quickly disappear into a building. Martin nods at Danny. On the floor just beyond the bed we make out a dark shape. For the record.
He puts his camera up to his eye as he steps over piled rubble and debris. It is now DARK.
Sometimes the scorpion gets stung too. They know their death. You wonder: Or you can move on. LEXI Tell that to an old boxer. See if getting beat down makes you stronger. In the land of the one-eyed. Eternal return. Envy lives of quiet desperation. He looks out the window at the passing terrain. I had to know there was something else. With the Russians approaching. In a place where evil seemed so big -. Now it was over. I believed this one little act of kindness saved my life. So many times I thought I would die.
It seems taken from a distance. The aborigines. Martin places on the desk. Seeing what people are capable of. Then he gives just the slightest nod. Only when it comes to God. Ladies met at a spinning class.. Very well acquainted.
Danny looks at the policeman curiously.. Books are closed on it. I would assume. Wallstreet Hotshot comes home a bit early one night to find the little missus in bed with -. Turns out one Mr. No surprise there -. They decide to kill the man in the middle. Martin looks at him quizzically. I share. You share. Hubby decides to reconcile with wifey.
The detective looks at Danny a beat. Or the girlfriend? A Jewish boy wearing a cross! I got tired of explaining.
I took the cross from my mouth and hung it round my neck. I think that was Pilate. The Russians had liberated the camp. He finishes making a small hole at the end of the bag. I ate so quickly the little cross came loose and I almost choked. Herzman continues his narrative. Just think about it -. People running everywhere. A tall bottle blonde is making out with a short fat black man in an easy chair in the corner. His hand moves under her dress like a mouse.
That would be Fenatree? They seem to be engaged in some kind of animated negotiation. Carl represented him a few times.
If there was any dirt on Carl. LEXI V.. Danny nods. The thing about Carl is. He always made fun of me anyway -. Then he points to his wrist. At the far end we lose sight of the three figures as they turn and head up a staircase. I found work with a relative who sold small gifts -. For some cotton candy MORE. The man looks at him expressionlessly. I made my way to New York.
He had to take a break sooner or later. The camera holds two memory cards. Martin gives him a look. This happiness was more foreign to me than the new language. I really wanted to kill her. Danny looks at the detective for a long moment.
Funny thing is. Car accident. Turns out she was going somewhere after all. Thirty years. It seemed. She was going to meet the guy she was screwing. The detective takes a deep breath. Every time the dark feelings would rise. I would. The hardest part was constantly going from one feeling to the next. That was a rough one. But I knew I had a choice: For weeks I bounced between hurt.
Danny looks at him a long beat. We talk and I hear she has an accent. I MORE. Its red light is ON. But she was so nice. She could figure out the rest. I never forget her smile. But of course she already knew -. Her eyes get very big. Her father was a scientist so America was happy to have him. Like two blue pools of water.
Herzman watches her husband. Then there are tears in her eyes. It was like we had known each other our whole lives -. I left the cart right there on the boardwalk and we walked for hours.
We notice the small gold cross around her neck. I promised her.
LEXI a few beats I woke up one morning. He turns around to see her standing behind him. Still you remain. I proposed to her.. You see the world.. People walk by your grave. LEXI softly I was wrong. He turns to her. She took the cab down with me. Do we become part of that story?
Does that become our eternity? They look out their respective windows. I wonder if it saved my life. The only problem is. He returns her look another beat. You can tell them over and over. The place is deserted. The great lost love has its appeal. He looks back down the hall. He reaches into his camera bag and. LEXI continuing Whatever happened to the grand gesture? Camping out on her lawn. A few long beats. Walks down the hall. What the fuck were you thinking? He starts up the stairs.
Spider looks down at him expressionlessly. The good ones. You think too much. You saw Pruitt lying on the floor? Tell you to grab her hair and push her face into the pillows? Tell you she likes it rough? We notice the lurid blue-and-red scorpion tattoo on his neck.
I never believe that. Probably not the first to wear this around his neck either. Spider studies Danny a long beat. Not ha-ha funny. Look at where I am. Unlike you. Spider takes off his jacket. Spider looks at him blankly.
Why would you have a scorpion tattoo? He reappears carrying a large kitchen knife. But you wind up falling for her. He starts to turn away. Only a smart guy could be that fucking stupid. Spider just scowls. He returns to Danny. He leans in close to Danny. Then he moves over to the body on the floor by the bed. Our girl asks you to get some dirt on old Carl over there.
Danny says nothing. Martin watches impassively as Danny tells his story. Those smarts again. I kill him. He looks back at Danny. He disappears again. Tell them what they want to hear. Spider looks down at Danny with true curiosity. Tiptoeing nine MORE. Spider returns to the room carrying a frying pan. Upper West Side pussy. LEXI And you thought the nail was a good idea because. He does Carl with the knife. She takes in the situation at a glance. Spider nods over to Carl.
She looks at Danny.. LEXI So.? LEXI looking around I want to see him.. He kills Carl. Looks at him a long beat. Turns to Spider. LEXI You have the gun? Spider removes a heavy revolver from his pocket.. Danny looks at Lexi in puzzlement. She regroups. CARL Who the fuck are you? LEXI Jesus.
LEXI No. He nods down toward his heart. Spider hands her the gun. Let me. LEXI If it makes a difference.. I never liked it rough. LEXI Hmm? He nods to her. She shrugs. LEXI He pisses me off. LEXI We do have a natural advantage. LEXI Men are simple. LEXI Someplace warm. She looks down at him. LEXI I did like talking to you. Our souls were born together at the beginning of time.
And when we look back to where Lexi was standing. LEXI Will you remember me? She turns back to Danny. I always have. Will it make up for everything? LEXI You want me to tell you it was real for me.
LEXI continuing Okay. She takes a step toward him. I love you. The thing is. Man the Believer. I still wanted to believe her. My guess is.. I wanted to believe. And we are left wondering: She convinced him it was you. Martin helps Danny connect the dots. Danny looks at the photo. I see what my mother had seen. Martin looks back at Danny. He was acquitted. Danny holds eye contact with Det.
Martin a long beat. Once Spider laid a hand on her. Earlier you mentioned something about that couple. We fell in love and were married.
Danny looks back at him. But I never even saw Herman. The important parts are true. For the money? Herman came clean. Martin looks at Danny in disbelief. RINA It was just a trinket he was selling. Rina holds up the little cross. It made people happy. I thought it was so funny. Your angel? But she never let me shoot her. Are you angry at Shakespeare because Juliet never said those words?
Our love is real -. I was going up to do my follow-up interview with the Herzmans. Danny looks at the detective quizzically. It made them feel good. A story like this would have given those poor souls more hope than a hundred gold crosses. Is there too much beauty in the world? Believe me. Lexi seems to be waiting impatiently. This is MORE. We see the huge girth of the big man Danny encountered in the tenement -. But is there a difference. I capture you in a net of words and you are known.
CONT'D the secret poets know: But you could say I was an accomplice of sorts. Why did I go back there. Lexi and Spider kiss.
