Confessions on the 7:45 by Lisa Unger is an Adult Suspense story of a secret exchanged with a stranger and the mystery that’s discovered soon after..
From master of suspense Lisa Unger comes a riveting thriller about a chance encounter that unravels a stunning web of lies and deceit.
Everyone has a secret… Now she knows yours.
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
In this fast-paced, twisted novel, we follow a woman who shares a secret with the stranger on her commute. But when a mysterious disappearance happens a few days later, she believes the listener may be more than just that..
From multiple POVs, we jump through all the lies, secrets, and disguises slithering into a well-written story of revenge. I was completely engrossed in this slow-burning thriller that quickly withers me from page to page.
I 100% recommend this one for lovers of domestic, cheating dramas mixed with a powerful, thrilling, edge-of-your-seat suspense plot. This one deserves every inch of a high 4 out of 5 stars.
