Book Description

20 Jun 2013
Everything points to suicide - but I saw her face... Headstrong Journalist, Anna Rothman knows what suicide looks like - her own husband killed himself five years earlier. When Elly Swift, an agitated passenger beside her on a train, leaves a locket in Anna’s bag before jumping onto the tracks, Anna starts asking awkward questions. But everything points to suicide and the police close the case. Anna, however, believes Elly’s fears for Toby, her young nephew, missing since being snatched from St Stephen’s church six months ago, fail to explain the true reason behind Elly’s distress. Through a series of cryptic clues Elly left behind, Anna starts asking awkward questions, embarking on a dangerous crusade to track down Toby and find Elly’s killer. But nothing is as it seems and Anna opens a can of worms that throws into question the death of her husband, five years earlier - before the threads of the mystery converge in an astonishing conclusion.

More About the Author

AJ Waines is a Crime Fiction Writer, specialising in Psychological Thrillers. Through her Agent, she has book deals in France (Editions les Escales) and Germany (Random House).

As a Psychotherapist working with ex-offenders from infamous secure institutions, AJ Waines has come face to face with the criminal mind. Her first two stand-alone novels, THE EVIL BENEATH and GIRL ON A TRAIN, feature psychotherapist, Juliet Grey then journalist, Anna Rothman, in modern, grizzly London settings.

--------------------------------------------------------------

THE EVIL BENEATH (taster): There's a body in the water - and she's wearing your clothes...

Another cryptic message, another body under a London bridge and Juliet Grey has no idea why she is being targeted and why her own possessions are being left on the corpses.

---------------------------------------------------------------

GIRL ON A TRAIN (taster): Everything points to suicide - but I saw her face...

When a woman leaves a locket in Anna's bag before jumping under a train, Anna starts asking awkward questions, but loose ends surrounding an abducted four-year-old boy are only part of the picture and Anna finds herself thrust towards the centre of several chilling revelations.

AJ Waines is interested in unusual psychological disorders and also ordinary people who are faced with extraordinary predicaments or who make terrible mistakes under extreme duress. She loves writing about moral dilemmas, crimes of passion, hidden motives, family secrets and anything hidden under floorboards!

'Having lived in London for 15 years and then moved away, I wanted to write about the places I loved and knew well. It was a semi-nostalgic process, although of course, the events in the story are far darker than any I experienced living there - thank goodness. In THE EVIL BENEATH, I wanted to capture the two aspects of the River Thames; one as a beautiful and majestic presence winding through the city, the other as a sinister force harbouring unexpected offerings.'

4.0 out of 5 stars A twist at the end 17 Aug 2013
By BB
Format:Paperback
I have just finished reading Girl on a Train and I really enjoyed it. I wasn't expecting the perpetrator to be who is was and so I was surprised by the ending which makes a change as I normally find most endings disappointing. The book also kept my interest throughout and was easy to read and follow.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 15 July 2013
By LLS
Format:Paperback
Like the first novel the Girl on a Train is superb. A good read for those who like mystery, suspense and the thinking's of the mind. The plot thickens throughout the novel starting from a simple train journey to a climax of an ending, one the reader is unlikely to guess (I was miles off). The reader is also taken on a journey, through the eyes of Anna Rothman allowing you to understand and feel the inner battles of her mind. Without giving anything away Anna Rothman is like a `dog with a bone', similarly when reading this novel it is "relentless" you won't be able to put it down until you know what has happened.
