LoveReading View on The One

A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

An ingenious and quite gripping psychological thriller based on the use of DNA matching for a new style of dating, this was originally self-published and we must be grateful it came to the attention of a larger publisher. You would think the chances of a relationship based on the affinities of DNA would be perfect but what if your match, your 'One' is psychopathic, already married to another, deranged? The breezy tale unfolds at lightning pace through the eyes and words of five sometimes hapless characters who've gone to the website and availed themselves of its seemingly perfect, foolproof dating opportunities, only to find that the path to true love or fortune is inevitably littered with thorns and problematic. Fast-paced and breathless, strewn with unforeseen twists in the tail, this is an unusual thriller that hooks you from page one and never lets go. Addictive, amusing and sinister in equal ways but a perfect, entertaining read. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
