A Thousand Small Explosions by John Marrs

a-thousand-small-explosions-by-john-marrsBlurb from goodreads.com, please scroll down for my review

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, heartbreaking and deadlier than others.

My Review


After reading the previous books by John I think his writing has improved, the books are also very different with completely different subjects and themes which make him a fantastic writer being able to cover such different genres.

Here you have a bunch of characters, who don´t know each other but all have something in common, they have all used a find your partner DNA service to help find their perfect partner, but as you can imagine things don´t turn out the way they want. So you have some murder, thrills, morality, etc. If you are looking for something different, this is it. Oh, and I love the cover.
