Review

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

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.

Full of twists, turns and cliff-hangers, The One You Love is the first novel in the Emma Holden suspense mystery trilogy. This fast-paced romantic suspense mystery has been downloaded over three million times, and has spent over two and a half years in the UK and US Kindle top 100 free chart, reaching number one in both countries and spending one full month there in the UK (July-August 2011). In 2014 it reached number 1 in the official UK paperback "Heat seekers" Chart.

Outside North America the Emma Holden trilogy is published by the international publisher, Hodder and Stoughton (Hachette). The version here has been professionally copy edited and is identical to that published by Hachette in the UK and elsewhere. This addresses issues relating to grammar and spelling, as mentioned in early reviews. 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).

"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.

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)

1.0 out of 5 stars Vapid and tedious Nov. 8 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating, but distracting June 22 2013
By C. Lemire TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars A long read Aug. 4 2014
By KEN B. CHAMBERLIN, Vancouver, BC TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read Sept. 12 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.
