THE ONE is about a man driven to the brink of insanity by his obsession with a forbidden love and his own self-delusion. An exotic beauty he finds when he moves to Korea in the Far East could be the true love he has always dreamed of, but for the fact he is married and her professor.
Despite the fear of the taboo of a potential relationship, he feels himself drawing closer to this girl who has brought colour into an otherwise stale and grey life. When this girl is taken away from him, he decides to do as all romantic heroes must: whatever it takes to make her his own.
No matter the cost, he will get her back.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I’d recommend this book any day of the week. The author has created an unhinged anti-hero to rival the best of them. Truly, if this is how strong Steve Justice’s debut novel is, I’m almost scared of what it will look like when he takes it to the next level. Powerful stuff.
This is an amazing psychological thriller!! With the tale being narrated by the Professor himself, you get to see into his thoughts, experience his feelings and moods and really live through him. I highly recommend this book to those thriller seekers.
I conclude with high recommendation. Lost? Check. Seoul? Check. Romantic? Double check, with a heavy dose of disquieting intention. Deceptively dark, you won’t know you’ve fallen down the rabbit hole until it’s too late. I look forward to more from Mr. Justice.
The author really understands the “show, don’t tell” rule of writing and really makes you see his characters clearly. The novel’s suspense and tension drives you to a terrifying ending, making this book hard to stop reading. I completely loved it.
I really do not want to give anything about this story away, because it such a thrilling and twisted tale, I want the reader to experience it for themselves without any clues as to what waits for them. All I can say, without giving anything away, is wow, this is one of those stories that will haunt you forever after you read it.

His lifelong dream, like so many others, has been to be a writer and it brings him immeasurable joy to be able to share his writing with anyone.
He currently resides and teaches literature at Seokyeong University in Seoul, South Korea.
His second novel, “The Blood of the Clan”, is now available for purchase.
