APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
If you’re on the hunt for a twisty read to keep you guessing, turn to Sabine Durrant’s Under Your Skin. The fast-paced thriller is told through the eyes of Gaby Mortimer, and sets around the TV presenter’s life as it takes a chilling turn the morning she discovers a body on her local common. Denying all knowledge of the scene to authorities, one plucky officer (Detective Inspector Perivale) begins digging for clues. Setting out a dizzying chase as the plot thickens and Gaby’s life begins unravel, the real truth will surely come as a shock to everyone. A dark thriller, laced with clever detail, Under Your Skin will stay with you for some time.
In former newspaper editor Durrant's gripping debut, morning TV host Gaby Mortimer's enviably glossy London life starts to careen out of control after she finds a young woman's body during her daily jog. Though a savvy Oxford grad should know better, Gaby impulsively breaks the cardinal rule of criminal procedure: don't touch the corpse. Then she submits to police questioning without a lawyer until it becomes clear that Detective Inspector Perivale regards her as his prime suspect. With her increasingly distant husband, a hedge fund honcho, on a business trip to Singapore, Gaby starts trying to extricate herself by investigating the murder, with the help of an unlikely ally: scoop-hungry freelance journalist Jack Hayward. But further complexities and creepy coincidences soon emerge. Why, for instance, was the victim apparently wearing Gaby's T-shirt? As the suspense mounts, Durrant skillfully keeps the twisty story on track through convincing characters and domestic detail right up to the shocking conclusion.

Under her skin
Really well written and a very clever ending. I thought I knew who the killer was....until the outcome surprised me.
KEEP WITH IT
I found the book slightly slow to start with but stick with it! I couldn’t put it down!!
Absolutely brilliant, read the whole thing in one go. Fantastic thriller from a female perspective and I think it’s the first time I have read a whodunnit without any clue who did it!
