How far would you go to find THE ONE?

One simple mouth swab is all it takes. A quick 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 other person, millions have taken the test, desperate to find true love. Now, five more people meet their Match. But even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking – and deadlier – than others...

A psychological thriller with a difference, this is a truly unique novel which is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat.




Are you still searching for The One?


From fairy tales of a sleeping princess who can be woken only by a kiss from her one true love to bedtime stories that inevitably end in the words ‘happily ever after,’ we learn from an early age of the importance of finding ‘The One,’ that perfectly complementary other half we are told we need in order to make our lives complete. Of course, the importance of finding ‘The One’ only increases as we get older: a multitude of dating apps along with a booming and increasingly ostentatious wedding industry is evidence enough of that. 


Now, we’ve all had disastrous dates in this quest to find 'The One', just like we’ve all kissed a few frogs before finding our very own Prince Charming nice-enough-guy-with-a-just-about-bearable-amount-of-annoying-bad-habits. But what if you could take the guess work out of finding ‘The One?’ What if the true love you’ve been searching for was written, not in the stars, but in your DNA? Wouldn’t love – and indeed life – be so much easier if everything was left, not to chance or fate, but to science?


Welcome to Match Your DNA.


Match Your DNA, which works on the premise that everyone has a gene they share with just one other person, eradicates the guess work involved in finding that elusive ‘one true love.’ For the princely sum of £9.99 you can download the details of your perfect match and let chemistry take its course from there. This isn’t a gimmick: Match Your DNA has an almost 100% success rate that guarantees your very own ‘happy ever after.’ Not only that, ever since the advent of Match Your DNA, the rates of reported spousal abuse have fallen dramatically, while divorce is pretty much a thing of the past. 


If this all sounds too good to be true, that’s because it is. Match Your DNA has its downsides; divorce rates among couples matched via science may be almost non-existent, but the emergence of Match Your DNA has led to an upsurge in divorces among already-married couples who, on discovering they are not married to their one true love, leave the marriage to instead settle down with their DNA-matched soulmate. Yikes! Can you imagine?! Then, there’s the fact that you could be matched with someone who lives on the other side of the world. Problematic. Worse still, you could find your perfect match only to discover that they have recently died. Not ideal. It gets even worse. What if you find yourself paired with an actual psychopath in the form of a serial killer responsible for the depraved murders of several young women? Do you run for the hills? Or do you stick around because, you know, this guy is your perfect match – and there has to be a reason for that. I mean, what does it say about you if you find yourself matched with a psychopath? Food for thought, indeed.


A thoroughly unique thriller, The One by John Marrs is fast-paced, absorbing and guaranteed to keep you reading late into the night, as you set off on a journey of discovery and adventure with five people who have put their faith in science and found their perfect match. They say the course of true love never runs smooth, but with nothing left to chance, what could go wrong? Spoiler alert: more than you could ever imagine, that’s what! 


Recommended to those looking for a thriller that’s different from all the rest!
