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.

Sunday Times bestselling author of Baby Doll

Really clever concept and some great characters and twists. It's a real joy to read something totally original, smart and thought provoking.

Peter James

Gripping from the start and full of surprises, this kept us up long after lights out


wonderful concept, ridiculously entertaining ... an absolute pleasure, the malevolence and impishness of a young Roald Dahl
