Publisher's description
How far would you go to find THE ONE?

One simple mouth swab is all it takes.

One tiny DNA test to find your perfect partner - the one you're genetically made for.

A decade after scientists discover everyone has a gene they share with just one person, millions have taken the test, desperate to find true love.

Now, five more people take the test. But even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking - and deadlier - than others...

My verdict
I was hooked on The One immediately. It's a very easy read with a compelling story, and one of the most cleverly plotted books I have read in a while. I enjoyed both of John Marrs' previous books, so I shouldn't really be surprised!

The One features five different threads, each one following a different person's experience of the DNA test that 'finds your perfect match'. One would have been great, but five is a real treat, as all possible scenarios seem to be covered (I won't give any of these away).

This psychological thriller is certainly written to make the reader think - a 'what if' book. Would you be willing to take the test to find your perfect match? What if you're already in a happy relationship? What if your perfect match seemed so unrealistic?

The chapters are short and snappy, with a cliffhanger at the end, which kept me reading on and on... and on. I struggled to put this book down! There are twists and turns, some small, some large. Some I guessed, others I didn't.

I thought this book was brilliant and will recommending it widely!

I received an Advance Reader Copy.
