APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
With competition so fierce, crime fiction can be a tough genre to crack. But British author Sarah Hilary has a gift for writing about startlingly dark subject matter with skillful subtlety. Her first three thrillers introduce us to London-based D.I. Marnie Rome: a tough, captivating protagonist. In Someone Else’s Skin, Rome investigates a women’s refuge and unearths a lurid web of violence. Soon, the detective’s own macabre backstory weaves its way into a devastating tale.

Someone Else's Skin
Really enjoyed this detective novel: very 'real' characters; gripping story; fast paced and really well written.
I loved it. Had me hooked. I want to know more, I'm hoping the next book will give me more insight in to what happened with her parents.
This book has some lovely twists and I fell for them! I figured it out as she did. An interesting insight in to how society views men and women.
I really enjoyed this book.
Real page turner! One of those where you don't want to keep reading because it's difficult but you have to to find out what happens next. Real talent.
