What I’m Reading
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.
The One That Got Away by Simon Wood is really good so far!
The author jumps right into the terrible stuff that’s happeningto the main character, Zoe, and her friend Holli. Then he jumps ahead fifteen months and shows us how Zoe’s life in changed, but then he jumps right back into the sick mind of the serial killer and gives us readers all the information that the cops want to know!
It’s a nail bitter for sure.
Here’s a quote from the page I’m reading, at 27%:
She’d always known that the man who abducted her and Holli was out ther somewhere, but she’d never known where. He existed in this formless shape that was some place. But last night had changed everything. He was in the bay area. She was within his grasp again.
I don’t know how this is going to end as I’ve never read Simon Woods work before, but I’m liking it so far!
And I’ll review it when I’m done!
