5 Stars from YOU Magazine

"This One Time is a damning criticism of our modern culture of insta-fame. If Stephen King wrote Misery in 2015 instead of 1987, it might have unfolded something like Van Tonder's gripping tale. Her debut novel is a breakneck, nailbiter of a psychological thriller with a main character you'll start out hating but end up feeling sorry for. Gripping stuff." - Jared Orlin, YOU Magazine


REVIEW: "A proper mind-fuck"


"Readers, who are in the mood for a proper mind-fuck as far as psychological thrillers are concerned, will find solace in Alex van Tonder’s This One Time. The writing flows well, the pacing is good, and the plot is downright terrifying." - extract from a review by Killer Aphrodite
