Books like Girl On The Train

This fabulous psychological thriller is at the top of everyone’s must-read list. The book is told from the viewpoint of three unreliable female narrators and is focussed around unhealthy obsession. The thriller is a highly compulsive read that is difficult to put down. With unpredictable plot twists, Paula Hawkins has demonstrated an art for edge-of-your-seat suspense. But if you’ve read this book so many times that the pages of your copy are dog eared and the spine is coming unglued, it might be time to try something new! Here are a few suggestions that should appeal.
