Under Your Skin by Sabine Durrant

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.

'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
