Girl On A Train: how the daily commute inspired a bestseller

Girl On A Train is the debut novel by London author, Paula Hawkins. It was hailed as one of the most highly anticipated books of 2015 - and has been winning a slew of fans, including Stephen King. 

It follows a woman whose regular commute in the capital takes a sinister twist when she one day witnesses something shocking.

Paula joined London Live to talk to our Entertainment Producer Simon Thompson to talk about her work, how it compares to Gone Girl, and whether we’ll see it on the big screen sometime soon.
