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.

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
