The Girl on the Platform

author: Bryony Pearce (2021)

rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

A thriller about a woman who sees a girl being kidnapped from a railway station, but nobody else witnesses it. It’s a first-person narration from the point of view of the woman, who’s a new mother struggling with mental health issues.

The explanation is maybe telegraphed a little early – I worked out what was going on less than halfway through the book – but it didn’t affect my enjoyment. I was gripped, and the ending felt suitably tense.
