Product description

Review

"Gripping from the start and full of surprises, this kept us up long after lights out" (Isabelle Broom, Heat)

"wonderful conceit, ridiculously entertaining ... an absolute pleasure, the malevolence and impishness of a young Roald Dahl" (T. A Cotterell, author of What Alice Knew)

"fantastic ... I can't remember the last time I was simultaneously this entertained and this disturbed. The One is a clever story with great pacing but it's the characters that make this a standout thriller." (Hollie Overton, Sunday Times bestselling author of Baby Doll)

"This will have you gripped" (Woman’s Own)

"Brilliantly inventive thriller, The One is a must-read for anyone who’s ever braved the dating pool" (Good Housekeeping)

"Engaging concept, craftily executed" (Adrian J Walker, bestselling author of The End of the World Running Club)

"Exciting, addictive, and enticing, The One is superbly plotted ... thrilling and intoxicating" (Becca's Books)

"a compelling read ... intriguing ideas" (SFX)

"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)

"A fascinating thriller … A furiously paced, compelling and hugely entertaining novel which comes recommended" (Starburst)

"a high octane read that will satisfy a wide variety of crime fans ... a page turner – deliciously dark, thought-provoking and hugely enjoyable" (Paul Burston)

"Hugely entertaining and hugely enjoyable. This is one to watch in 2017." (Claire Allan)

"This smart story (that has a serial killer thrown in) proves that even with science behind it, the course of true love never runs smooth" (Sunday Mirror)

"Unlike any other psychological thriller … Like a lengthy episode of the dark TV series Black Mirror … so expertly written it gets you thinking that it could happen in real life" (Peterborough Telegraph)

"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)

Absolutely fantastic. Had me laughing and crying then screaming at the end. Couldn't put it down and now off to buy more books from this author. I've spent the past few hours after finishing the book worrying about the characters desperate to know what happens next and then questioning whether I would take the test and whether I would allow it to change my life and relationships based on DNA testing. Is the grass ever greener? Could love ever be defined by science? This novel perfectly explores the different situations that could arise if we let science determine who we fall in love with. Recommend to everyone.

If I could rate this amazing book higher than five stars I would, because I absolutely loved it. It has five stories going on with one overall theme. Each story had me gripped, as I read about the people who met their perfect partner through Match My DNA! I can't recommend it highly enough and I haven't stopped thinking about it since I finished it yesterday. Trust me, you'll love it!

So different to the crime psychology books I usually read. This book left me thinking different things as reading to the story line going totally opposite. I loved the way it told different peoples stories yet all being of the same main story. Really good read. Look forward to reading more from an excellent writer John Marrs. Highly recommend.

In this day and age, it seems only a matter of time before science begins to tell us who our DNA match is. This was pa well thought out and believable sorry even though some quite unusual things happen. Well worth a read!

I don't usually write reviews of the books I read, but I was so disappointed with this book I felt I had to put something down this time. I ordered this as It had such good reviews I thought it would be enjoyable and thought provoking. Unfortunately, I found it very far fetched and the characters completely unbelievable. I realise that the author is imagining how things might occur if DNA matching was available, but I would hope that we would not all become as psychopathic and unsympathetic as most of the characters in this book. I am afraid that I didn't like any of them.

Like others who've given this book two stars, I was really looking forward to reading it because of its great central concept. And it was a page-turner to some extent - I wanted to know how the different plot elements would turn out.

But I found the literary style very hard going right from the start, quite lazy and cliched, and because the dialogue was also weak it was very difficult to care for or identify with any of the main characters.

I think there's a good book in here somewhere, but it needs a lot more editing to become apparent. A pity.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, the different characters with their very different lives, but I got to the end and was looking for the missing pages! I'm not sure what I wanted or expected to happen but was left with a feeling of "is that it?"

A most unusual book - compelling reading. It was so good to get a plot that was so very different, believable and credible. I found the characters and the scenarios fascinating with ordinary situations with such twists.
