The One Who Got Away is the latest offering by Caroline Overington.
It popped up in a recommendations email from Kobo the week I was planning to fly across the Pacific.
I haven’t read any of her other books but I had seen her name in an article discussing women crime writers. Apparently, they’re doing things differently, like not having an investigator as the protagonist, so I bought the book. Had every intention of reading it on the plane. Finally got around to reading it – in one sitting – last weekend.
Intriguing story and, yes, it’s not driven by a police investigator, but what I like about the book is the way in which the story is told. It has four narrators, so you get four perspectives – five actually, when you consider that one of the narrators interviews one of the other main characters in the story who doesn’t otherwise get a say. And, I wasn’t expecting the ending.
Here’s a link to the book’s page on Kobo but you might not be able to buy yourself a copy if you are in the US – an example of the games played by publishers.
