Book Cover: The Man on the TrainA fresh voice in American crime fiction, Debbie Babitt rocked the boat with her 2021 debut Saving Grace and instantly established a reputation for herself. THE MAN ON THE TRAIN is her third novel.

When two police officers awaken Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Linda Haley in the middle of the night, she knows it’s bad. Her world crumbles when they tell her an arrest warrant was issued for her husband, Guy. Is it possible that her marriage has been nothing but a lie all along? Linda vows to prove Guy’s innocence, but her investigation unearths some really nasty secrets. Things seem to revolve around the cold case of an atrocious act of violence in a fishing village several decades earlier.

The plot moves forward with rapid tempo while the story extends to multiple settings, from northern New York to the idyllic Hamptons. The reader identifies with the protagonist’s uncertainty right away. We root for her to discover the truth, regardless of what it may be. THE MAN ON THE TRAIN will grab you by the throat and hurl you into a world brimming with mystery and intrigue.
