Publisher's Summary

Graduate students Zoë and Holli only mean to blow off some steam on their road trip to Las Vegas. But something goes terribly wrong on their way home, and the last time Zoë sees her, Holli is in the clutches of a sadistic killer. Zoë flees with her life, changed forever.
A year later and still tortured with guilt, Zoë latches on to a police investigation where the crime eerily resembles her abduction. Along with a zealous detective, she retraces the steps of that fateful night in the desert, hoping that her memory will return and help them find justice for Holli. Her abductor--labeled the "Tally Man" by a fascinated media--lies in wait for Zoë. For him, she is not a survivor but simply the one that got away.
With an unforgettable heroine, a chillingly disturbed psychopath, and a story that moves at breakneck speed, The One That Got Away is thriller writer Simon Wood at his finest.

Well Done Suspense Novel

I must say, I was engage from start to finish with this book. The author managed to keep me intrigued for the entire book, with its great writing, fast(ish) pace story-lines and gripping suspense.

The female heroine was perfectly written, strong, confident, a bit reckless and flawed. But as the story develops, she also manages to grow herself. She takes ownership of her situation and refuses to be defined by it, but eventually starts the process of healing.

The narrator was great for the female characters and so-so for the male. They weren't bad but some male characters kind of sounded the same.

Overall, I recommend this book. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it and look forward to more works from Simon Wood.

Don't let this one get away from you

This was a Kindle First pick for me and I picked up the audible version for a steep discount price. What a bargain for a high quality, entertaining read. Wood wastes no time introducing us to the two opposing forces in this thriller, and from the start I was hooked. I listened to the book as frequently as I could, on commutes and during my runs. There really isn't a slow moment in the book, you'll want to keep reading to find out how things will be resolved.

Awful narration!

This storyline is distinctly so-so but what got me annoyed was the narration. Stilted, strange intonation meant that she sounded like a recorded message not a narrator. There seemed to be a full stop at end of sentences, only for her to add a name after a pause. Very distracting.

I can't imagine downloading anything that narrated by this woman.

Good story well written

Fast paced, entertaining, well narrated although I thought the male voices let it down a little. Plausible characters that you can relate too.

B grade storyline

Very predictable story don't bother there are a lot better books around. The narrator made the male voices sound like carectors from Soody Doo

It wasn't the best story

I felt for the character. She was likeable. But the story didn't surprise me. I felt all the events were just given. I also did not like how it was narrated. I didn't find the narrator engaging and I felt she didn't really get the story.
