Before moving to London in 1989 at the age of 17, Hawkins attended Arundel School, Harare, Zimbabwe then studied for her A-Levels at Collingham College, an independent college in Kensington, West London.

Hawkins then challenged herself to write a darker, more serious story. Thi s became her breakthrough novel The Girl on the Train (2015), a complex thriller, with themes of domestic violence, alcohol, and drug abuse.

Ouf, c'est ce que me suis dit en arrivant à la dernière page de ce roman fleuve, construit à partir des différents commentaires et témoignages de nombreux personnages, on s'y noient un peu, comme plusieurs femmes dont parle de thriller. L'auteure est maligne, elle emmène le lecteur jusqu'au bout parce qu'elle ne lui donne les clefs de l'histoire que dans les dernières pages. Mais, une fois de plus, je trouve ce livre trop long, trop bavard.
