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

But even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking - and deadlier - than others...

Reviews

'The One is a unique, unpredictable and fast-paced novel that's in equal parts unsettling and exciting ... If you're fed-up with the samey psychological thrillers that are churned out each month, The One will restore your faith in the genre. Culturefly Engaging concept, craftily executed' -- Adrian J Walker bestselling author of The End of the World Running Club

'Hugely entertaining and hugely enjoyable. This is one to watch in 2017.' -- Claire Allan

'The One is my kind of book, one that stimulates the mind while warming the heart ... Gorgeously written, and pulsing with heart' -- Louise Beech author of The Mountain in My Shoe

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
