Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 320 pages. Published in 2015. The author's breakthrough debut novel. One of the most sensational literary debuts of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly copies that are signed on a tipped-in page. Published in a small and limited first print run that sold out shortly after publication. The book remains available in nth printings only, having surpassed the 2-million-copy mark as of June 2015, less than six months after its release. Please note: The British and American Editions were released simultaneously. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Paula Hawkins' "The Girl On The Train". Her deservedly acclaimed first novel. "Jealousies and betrayals and wounded hearts. A haunting unease that clutches and won't let go. All this and more help propel Paula Hawkins' addictive debut into a new stratum of the psychological thriller genre. Hawkins teases out mystery with a veteran writer's finesse. A book to be devoured" (Neal Thompson). Although this is her first outing, Paula Hawkins has had fifteen years of training and preparation as a full-fledged, working journalist. What she has achieved is genuine: Her evocation of her characters' secrets and lies is painfully compelling. Her ambivalence about the voyeurism that characterizes contemporary life is something Alfred Hitchcock anticipated and would have approved of. But perhaps her finest achievement is Rachel, her eponymous protagonist, a congenital liar-alcoholic who is difficult to like at best and exasperating at worst, until she redeems herself in the novel's climactic set piece, and brings the novel to its triumphant resolution. The basis of the Hollywood film adaptation (2016) produced by Steven Spielberg, directed by Tate Taylor, with Emily Blunt in a career-defining performance as Rachel. An absolute "must-have" title for Paula Hawkins collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and dated (shortly after publication) in black ink-pen on the title page by the author: "Paula Hawkins 03/03/15". It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page, as most copies available online are. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of few such signed and dated copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing (British) still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant living novelists in the mystery/thriller genre. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO KATE HAMER TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1594633665. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller

?Nothing is more addicting than The Girl on the Train.??Vanity Fair

?The Girl on the Train has more fun with unreliable narration than any chiller since Gone Girl. . . . [It] is liable to draw a large, bedazzled readership.??The New York Times

?Like its train, the story blasts through the stagnation of these lives in suburban London and the reader cannot help but turn pages.??The Boston Globe


?Gone Girl fans will devour this psychological thriller.??People 

A debut psychological thriller that will forever change the way you look at other people's lives.

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. 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.

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 offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.
