The Getaway

The Getaway

Listening Length: 2 hours and 24 minutes

In this short thriller from number one New York Times best-selling authors Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen, a young woman's dream getaway becomes her worst nightmare.

Prepare yourself for a transformative experience. Sometimes, life's setbacks contain hidden gifts. Here at Lakewood, you'll find the space to unwrap them.

A weekend at the Lakewood Retreat is exactly what Chloe Powell needs. Freshly unemployed after her boss loses a reelection campaign, the former press secretary desperately wants a break from the bustle of Washington DC. A flier posted at her yoga studio leads her to the getaway, which looks amazing: organic meals, celebrity testimonials, and a serene private property within driving distance of the city.

It's so perfect, in fact, that Chloe's barely bothered by the intensely personal questions she's asked in her application, or the unnerving social experiments her enigmatic host, Sebastian, imposes on her once she arrives at his remote cabin. But when a mysterious new guest shows up, Chloe can no longer suppress her rising panic: This place is not at all what it seems.

A pulse-pounding story from the first minute to the last, The Getaway explores the weight of the small choices we make every day, and their staggering, unintended consequences.

    THE GETAWAY was given away as an Audible Original. I had a hard time suspending my disbelief, mostly because the main character was not believable. It didn't make sense for her to do the things she di...

    Wow. This was good.The Getaway was a pretty good short mystery. A lot happened within 2 hours that I wasn't fully prepared for. The twists and turns just kept getting better and better. Heck, even the...

    I have really enjoyed every book by this author duo and it was certainly an intriguing enough storyline to keep me hooked. I enjoy these types of stories where the main protagonist is placed in a secl...

    Meh... not very convincing, though somewhat thrilling. The beginning is very slow, the ending is rushed. Also, why give Chloe a background in politics if it doesn’t play any role, nor it gives her a...
