Under Your Skin

Under Your Skin

Sabine Durrant

This morning, I found a body.
Soon the police will arrest me for murder.

And after that my life will fall apart.

Gaby Mortimer is the woman who has it all. But everything changes when she finds a body on the common near her home.

Because the evidence keeps leading back to her.

And the police seem sure she’s guilty…

UNDER YOUR SKIN is an unpredictable, exquisitely twisty story, which proves that there are only three rules in life that mean anything:
Assume nothing
Believe no one

Check everything


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. (Guardian – Alison Flood)

You’ll be glued to every page of this pacy, clever and gripping novel (Closer)

Sabine Durrant writes beautifully and with such a light touch that the twists were truly shocking (Jane Casey, Author Of the Missing)

Reminiscent of Nicci French and Rosamund Lupton, Sabine Durrant’s Under Your Skin is utterly gripping. I devoured it in one weekend, ignoring the phone, the door, even my husband and kids. (Hannah Richell, Author Of Secrets Of The Tides)

I was hooked from the gruesome discovery to the last page with its unpredictable but brilliantly satisfying conclusion… I don’t often say this about a book, but I thought it was perfect in every way. (Bookbag)
