Emma and Dan, wedding in a couple of weeks so lots of partying to do and then Dan goes missing, believed to have beaten up his brother in the process. Naturally Emma can’t believe her man is guilty of such violence and so the plot begins. Accompanied by good friend Lizzie she chases across London, up to Manchester and back as the plot thickens. With short chapters, lots of cliff hangers and all plot (little description) this races along. It was originally self-published.

Synopsis

The One You Love by Paul Pilkington

Days before their wedding, during their last separate nights of hard-partying singledom, Emma Holden's fiance has gone missing. Not only has Dan disappeared without a trace, his brother is found beaten and left for dead, and may not wake up from a coma. Without any evidence, suspicion for the attempted murder falls on Dan - but Emma refuses to believe his guilt. When crime scene photos get splashed across the pages of London tabloids, Emma knows that someone is following her. Watching her. It is an old, familiar feeling, though no less terrifying. A long-hidden family secret seems to unite Emma's troubled past with her dangerous present. As time runs out her trust in her family, her friends -- and Dan -- faces an ultimate test.

Reviews

It's rare to find a thriller writer who can simultaneous propel us readers forward at a breakneck pace and yet engage our minds as we unravel puzzles brilliantly seeded through the story. Pilkington does just this. The One You Love will captivate and keep you up nights. * Jeffery Deaver *
