The One That Got Away

The One That Got Away

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.


“Simon Wood’s The One That Got Away turns the serial killer convention upside down in a genuinely suspenseful novel.” —Charlaine Harris, author of The Day Shift

"Simon Wood's dark, suspenseful thriller is a winner. Zoe Sutton is one of the most compelling, interesting, and complex heroines I've read in a long time. Wood is a master at ratcheting up the suspense—he starts strong on page one, and doesn't let up until the final sentence. Wood is at the top of his game with The One That Got Away." —Allison Brennan, New York Times bestselling author of Notorious

"Wrenchingly intense—the talented Simon Wood goes psychologically dark and deeply disturbing. For those who like their thrillers twisty, shocking, and relentless." —Hank Phillippi Ryan, Agatha, Anthony, Macavity, and Mary Higgins Clark award-winning author of Truth Be Told

"Marvelously nerve-racking, The One That Got Away is a wicked roller-coaster of suspense that paints a realistic picture of a serial murderer and Zoë Sutton, the one prey that got away. You won’t want to sleep once you start reading." —Gayle Lynds, New York Times bestselling author of The Assassins and The Book of Spies
