The One That Got Away

The One That Got Away


You thought he was the one. You broke his heart. But now, he might be the only one who can save your life...
Pre-order the brilliant breakout new thriller from bestselling Gytha Lodge now!


Arabella and Reid weren't meant to be, apparently. She's a fiery American journalist; he's a stoic British detective - it was nice while it lasted, and then it really wasn't.

And Arabella is over it now anyway. She's on the scent of a career-making story - a suspicious death amongst the cloistered elite world of Cambridge University, with a slice of police corruption too.

It's just, the more she investigates, the more there's only one person she wants to talk to about it - for practical help, yes, but also because there's really only one person she wants to talk to. She starts writing Reid a long sprawling email - it's not like she's ever planning to send it.

Until suddenly, she's in desperate trouble. The problem with chasing a killer is that sometimes, you run right into them.

Is it a blessing or a curse that the only the detective she can trust with her life is the one who broke her heart?
