“[A] taut, beautifully-written novel.” —Sarah Pekkanen, #1 New York Times bestselling author of An Anonymous Girl


From master of suspense Lisa Unger comes a riveting thriller about a chance encounter that unravels a stunning web of lies and deceit.

Be careful to whom you tell your darkest secrets…

Selena Murphy is commuting home from her job in the city when the train stalls out on the tracks. She strikes up a conversation with a beautiful stranger in the next seat, and their connection is fast and easy. The woman introduces herself as Martha and confesses that she’s been stuck in an affair with her boss. Selena, in turn, confesses that she suspects her husband is sleeping with the nanny. When the train arrives at Selena’s station, the two women part ways, presumably never to meet again.

 

But days later, Selena’s nanny disappears.

 

Soon Selena finds her once-perfect life upended. As she is pulled into the mystery of the missing nanny, and as the fractures in her marriage grow deeper, Selena begins to wonder, who was Martha really? But she is hardly prepared for what she’ll discover.

 

Expertly plotted and reminiscent of the timeless classic Strangers on a Train, Confessions on the 7:45 is a gripping thriller about the delicate facades we create around our lives.

"A chance meeting—or is it?—with a stranger on a train tilts Selena Murphy's tidy world upside-down in this taut, beautifully-written novel.  What elevates Lisa Unger's psychological thriller to a new level are her shrewd insights into the dynamics of a seemingly ideal marriage."
—Sarah Pekkanen, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Wife Between Us and An Anonymous Girl

 

"Lisa Unger expertly unravels the layers of mystery and deceit at the heart of this chilling thriller. What begins with a missing woman and a chance encounter twists with each new discovery, taking a sharp look at the people we think we know. A gripping, haunting story that kept me guessing until the very end."
—Megan Miranda, New York Times bestselling author of The Last House Guest

“Unger takes you deep into the minds of psychopaths, and while you wouldn’t want to live there, what wild, creepy places they are to visit. Unger is at the top of her game here.”
