    Description

    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.

    Wow!

    First of all this is not for the squeamish. It's a gritty thriller, and what a thrill ride the author takes you on. Good luck trying to put this down once you've started. I got the Kindle (print) edition that syncs up with the audio, so I could read when it wasn't possible to listen and visa versa.
    Zoe is a very believable and likeable character. She goes to hell and back several times in this story, but the violence never seems gratuitous.
    Do not choose this book if you like cozy mysteries with lemonade and cats on the covers. But if you like a gripping, high tension thriller, this book is for you.

    Do not believe the negative reviews!

    WOW! The One That Got Away is a superb suspense novel. There has been a lot of complaints about the narrator. I do not understand why because she does an excellent job. I definitely recommend this novel for those who like intense suspense.

    A good distraction

    This was quite an enjoyable listen. The plot is good and keeps the listener at the edge of their seat. I hated to hear it end.

    Really good

    Love how she never gave up! Tally Man was a little weird but loved it.

    Strange narration

    I found the narrator to be very annoying. She sounded like she was narrating a poorly written Barbie story. Her intimations were over-emphasized and made the main character sound like a whiny complainer. I think I would have had a different take on the characters and the story overall if the narration hadn't interfered with my feeling about them. She also did horrible men's voices. I would recommend that this be a book to read, not to listen to.

    The story was okay. It's a typical murder story, with some interesting facets, but again, I have a hard time analyzing it without accounting for the narration.

    Pretty Good Story

    Any additional comments?

    Well worth listening too. Interesting story. Bad villain that you love to hate. A heroine who is a little flawed but I grew to like her. Too much torture at some points - I don't like violence - but I fast forward when I get scared. Reader is good.

    I Hated This Book!

    Would you try another book from Simon Wood and/or Emily Durante?

    No-I no interest in reading another book by this author or narrated by Emily.

    What could Simon Wood have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    He could have written it better. "The blade was dull". "The plastic was hard." "The books were dusty." Seriously. I felt like maybe this was a high school book report.

    How could the performance have been better?

    Her voice grated on me, I'm not sure why. I did not like how she did the male voices in the story at all.

    Any additional comments?

    I'm very glad I got this title from the bargain deal because I would have really kicked myself for wasting a whole credit on it.
