playlist-barrygruff-1I’m a big music freak and as I’ve done with my last couple of books, I’ve created a playlist for my heroine Zoë Sutton from THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY. Zoë’s playlist is pretty dark as she’s a troubled woman, not surprising considering her past problems and her present danger. This mix tape is the kind of thing her therapist would have her make to help her understand herself better. So here’s what I expect to find on her playlist:

1. “Hit me with your best shot” – Pat Benatar
2. “One way or another” – Blondie
3. “Missing” – Everything But The Girl
4. “Showdown” – ELO
5. “Tallyman” – Jeff Beck
6. “I’ve Been Waiting For A Girl Like You” – Foreigner
7. “Wicked Game” – Chris Isaak
8. “Bad Girls” – M.I.A.
9. “The First Cut Is The Deepest” – Cat Stevens
10. “Out of Control” – She Wants Revenge
11. “Hurt” – Johnny Cash
12. “Fox On The Run” – Sweet
13. “Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing” – Chris Issak
14. “Out of Control” – Hoobastank
15. “Died in your arms” – Cutting Crew

Readers of the book should recognize the significance of these songs and song titles, so if you have suggestions for Zoë, call them out. I’m sure Zoë will appreciate it. 🙂
