It's rare to find a thriller writer who can simultaneous propel us readers forward at a breakneck pace and yet engage our minds as we unravel puzzles brilliantly seeded through the story. Pilkington does just this. The One You Love will captivate and keep you up nights.―Jeffery Deaver

Product Description

"It's rare to find a thriller writer who can simultaneous propel us readers forward at a breakneck pace and yet engage our minds as we unravel puzzles brilliantly seeded through the story. Pilkington does just this. The One You Love will captivate and keep you up nights." Jeffery Deaver, internationally bestselling author of the Lincoln Rhyme novels.

Experience the gripping opening instalment of the best-selling Emma Holden mystery trilogy.

Over three million downloads. Over 2000 five star reviews worldwide.


Emma Holden's nightmare has just begun. Her fiancé vanishes, leaving the battered and bloodied body of his brother in their London apartment. Someone is stalking her, watching her every move. And her family is hiding a horrifying secret; a secret that threatens all those she loves. In a desperate race against time, Emma must uncover the truth if she ever wants to see her fiancé alive again.

Outside North America the Emma Holden trilogy is published by the international publisher, Hodder and Stoughton (Hachette). The version here is identical to that published by Hachette in the UK and elsewhere. The novel uses British English spelling and grammar, so there are differences to US English (for example: favour, colour, grey, organise, rather than favor, color, gray, organize).

OUT NOW ON KINDLE:

The One You Fear (Emma Holden trilogy book 2), named as one of the Best Kindle Books of 2013 (Editors' choice on UK Kindle Store).

The One You Trust (Emma Holden book 3). The gripping finale to the best-selling trilogy.

Paul's other suspense mystery, Someone to Save You, is also available on Kindle. Praise for Someone to Save You:

"An excellent read which I thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend to all lovers of thrillers." (four stars, Amazon.co.uk)

"...fast-paced and intricately plotted...the lead character Sam Becker is a likable, convincing protagonist." (five stars, Amazon.co.uk)

"I loved this one! A super novel which kept me up at night! Did not want to put it down until I'd read the next chapter, so much sleep lost!" (five stars, Amazon.co.uk)

"Seriously, my co-workers were laughing at me as I came back from a break this morning because I was still staring at my phone (with Kindle app) as I walked down the hall back to my desk. I just could not stop reading. Very suspenseful, so much so, that I'm sorry I've finished it." (five stars, Amazon.com)

Love it or loathe it, London has colors and sounds and smells and attitude enough to provide ample material for even the most unimaginative of writers. In a word, it's exciting. What Mr. Pilkington delivers, in a winning combination of no research and inferior writing, is a vague, nondescript place that is as limp and lifeless as his characters.
All of whom, despite being ostensibly British, speak American English--which makes reading the dialog an experience surprisingly similar to listening to out-of-tune music. You see, Mr. Pilkington, calling a cellphone a 'mobile' and an apartment a 'flat' doth not British English make. Neither does the spelling. It's in the phrasing and the choice of words, in that elusive little thing called 'idiom.' Of course, getting that right would have meant familiarizing yourself with the people you're writing about. With the people and with their profession... because, fact is, sir, that there is not one aspiring actor in all of Greater London who wouldn't miss their own funeral for a movie casting.
To top it off, the story is a structural nightmare, riddled with flashbacks that are identifiable as such only because the next chapter is headed 'Present Time' and with stupendously boring passages of unidentified persons doing nothing in particular and trying to look sinister while they're at it.
All in all, thoroughly missable.
To anyone who's after well-written UK-set mystery--and to Mr, Pilkington, just so he can see how it's done--I recommend anything by Elizabeth George.

This is definitely a good read. The story is intriguing, the plot is well developed, and the pace is ok. However, I was distracted throughout the book by bad grammar and spelling mistakes.

This is definitely a suspense mystery, however the suspense is delivered by Paul Pilkington, by not providing all the evidence to the reader. It is not until 25 percent into the book before you can start to piece it together and only at the 2/3’s point before you get into the story. It is your choice to read this one, for me I want better fish to fry.

I got about 100 pages in and had to stop. It is basically a soap opera which i'm not a fan of, and a poorly written one at that. If you're into soap operas, you may like it. The spelling and grammar were also pretty bad. I would not recommend this book even if its free.

It is a great book for anybody who like a quick mystery read. Lots of going back and forth between characters and situations and events happening throughout the book. There are a lot of characters in the book in general, not just main characters, and its hard to remember who is who and who did what and so on.

Not exactly my cup of tea, or at least I thought so at first. As cozies go though, this Emma Holden suspense mystery trilogy offering was enjoyable and free of many of the genre's sometimes annoyingly repetitious cliches. At the end, The One You Love was still a bit outside my reading bailiwick, but it was well done and original. This in my opinion made the mystery thriller the kind of book I would not hesitate to recommend to any reader. I might not recommend it at the top of my recommendations list, but it would certainly be on the list.

I finally finished the book. It took me a long time, after the first few chapters I couldn't keep going, I didn't felt engaged. I read it while I was reading other books and eventually the pace picked up and I found myself wanted to know what have happened and I finished it in few days. There is a sequel and I will probably give it a go just to see what is coming next...
Overall I liked it and I'm glad I didn't gave up completely.
