The One That Got Away - Simon Wood

*Book source ~ Kindle First


A year after Zoë escapes a deranged killer leaving her friend Holli behind to die, she sees a news report about a woman murdered in a similar fashion. She still can’t remember details from her escape due to the drugs in her system at the time, but she’s certain she can help the police in some way to catch the guy who haunts her dreams and dogs her every waking second. Dubbed the Tally Man because of the marks he puts on his victims he stalks Zoë when he sees her on television in connection with his latest victim. The one who got away is no longer lost to him. The question now is does she deserve to die for her sins (according to him) or has she changed enough for him to let her go.


This is one helluva page turner that grabbed me by the scruff of my neck from the very first page and didn’t let me go until the very end! What a ride! There are a few moments where I had to suspend all disbelief in the power of coincidence and forgive incredible stupidity, but for the most part this story is a tension-filled nail biter! Do you like seriously creepy serial killers, flawed yet strong heroines, hard-working detectives and enough suspense to give you heart palpitations? Then this is the one for you!
