Lovereading view...

A clever murder mystery with lots of great suspicious characters, some really nice twists and a thrilling end. We are in wealthy North London. Gaby is walking her dog, she finds a body, reports it and is as shocked as everone else. Soon her shock turns to horror as she becomes the chief suspect. She is a very likeable woman whom you root for all the way but she’s got a mass of stuff stacked up against her. This is excellent stuff.

If you like Sabine Durrant you might also like to read books by Erin Kelly, Sophie Hannah and Nicci French.

Reviews

'A thrilling whodunnit...will keep you gripped and guessing till the very end. Is it - dare we say - the new Gone Girl?' -- Grazia

'Warning: you won't want to put this down...a series of clever twists lead to a stunning ending -- Look UNDER YOUR SKIN rapidly unravels into a maelstrom of tension and paranoia, as Durrant draws a disturbing picture of how easy it is for even the most perfect life to implode... if the mark of a good thriller is the compulsion to reread it immediately on finishing, to see if the clues can be spotted second time round, then UNDER YOUR SKIN has it, in spades' -- Observer

'You'll be glued to every page of this pacy, clever and gripping novel' -- Closer

'This has all the authority of the best novels by Nicci French...We need thriller writers who can reinvigorate the genre and [Durrant] may be able to do just that' -- Daily Express
