Publisher's Summary

A compulsive and startling psychological thriller for fans of Girl on a Train and Gone Girl.

Loren Wynne-Estes appears to have it all: she's the girl from the wrong side of the tracks who's landed a handsome husband, a stunning home, a fleet of shiny cars and two beautiful daughters....

Then one day a fellow parent taps Loren on the shoulder outside the grand school gate, hands her a note...and suddenly everything's at stake.

Loren's Facebook-perfect marriage is spectacularly exposed--revealing an underbelly of lies and betrayal. What is uncovered will scandalise a small town, destroy lives, and leave a family divided.

But who is to be believed and who is to blame? Will the right person be brought to justice or is there one who got away?

"The One Who Got Away is the new Gone Girl and then some.... The twists and turns are masterful and the way she channels the voices of her characters is a dream to read. I can't recommend this book highly enough. Bring on the movie." (Mia Freedman)

Annoying narrator!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. Whilst the story was okay the narrator drove me mad. Switching voices (badly) was quite distracting and I found it irritating.

Would you ever listen to anything by Caroline Overington again?

Perhaps.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Vuletic?

I’m really not sure but not her.

Could you see The One Who Got Away being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No.

Appalling narration

The reader for this book was appalling. She made every character sound angry and belligerent which really impacted on the story!

Waste of time - don’t bother

Catherine Overington usually develops characters well - but not here - the book is tedious with a twist that doesn’t sit with the rest of the story - not clever, just plucking one of a thousand scenarios - the relationship between Molly and her sister was clearly more interesting than anything else but wasn’t examined in any detail. As it is, the book is frankly silly.

Wow what a story!

I couldn't stop listening to find out what happened, which was a TOTALLY unexpected surprise! It would be far better in written form because of the absolutely horrendous male voices!!! Ear splitting, drawn out and exaggerated is not an overstatement for some of them...only made bearable by the storyline itself. I did feel the fine details of the husband's affair could've been shortened, his interview was a bit of an overstate in my opinion...I just wanted the main facts! I won't give my thoughts on the ending, not everything in life ends up how we think it should be 😎🤫😅

was an interesting story but the voices were awful

The characters and their actions were all exaggerated, everyone was a big personality. Story was ok, not my favourite Overington book. Was hard to listen to with the voices

Terrible narration.

Narration terrible, exaggerated accents, just so overplayed. Characters all unlikable and uninteresting. Nothing original, give this one a miss.

Held my interest

There were some good twists and turns. A few holes in the storyline. Nice touch giving different tellers of the story throughout the book. Narrator’s performance with men’s and children voices was a bit annoying.
