"[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.

Disappointing. Had potential, but ultimately the most predictable "thriller" I have ever read. Would not recommend.

A New & Noteworthy staff pick 2020. Ready for a riveting psychological thriller that begins with a chance encounter on a commuter train and shows why you should never, ever make conversation with strangers? This is it.

An exhilarating novel that sweeps you up and leaves you breathless. Lisa Unger's usual standard of suspense, thrills, and "Holy cow what did I just read?!" I loved it!

Discovering infidelity is like watching a bomb rip into a building. Selena catches her husband in the act on the nanny cam -- with the nanny. She finds herself confiding in a stranger on the train and feels a tenuous connection with this "Martha." It will come back to haunt her in ways she does not expect. Full of twists and turns, this new thriller from Lisa Unger was a thought-provoking page turner. While there are some deplorable husbands in the book, there are also men treating the women and children in their lives with honor and dignity. The contrast makes the cheaters look even more tawdry in comparison. This book also gives us an inside look into the methods of a con artist and I found that to be quite enlightening. Definitely will be recommending this title to library patrons this fall.
