Someone Else’s Skin by Sarah Hilary

A welcome new addition to women’s crime fiction. Written with good pace and cleverly revealing just enough about the central characters to keep us gripped, Someone Else’s Skin  introduces a new crime duo. D.I Marnie Rome is a class act. Holding a few secrets to herself, she and her police partner, Detective Noah Jake visit a women’s refuge hoping to persuade one of the residents to testify to a family member’s propensity for serious violence. And it is at the refuge that the core of the novel’s theme of domestic violence is explored through the interlinking lives of the women who are staying there.
As much a strong psychological thriller as police procedural, it kept me interested all the way through. I look forward to getting to know more about Marnie Rome.

Passionate book reader. Love all kind of books from 19th century novels to crime thrillers. My blog is predominantly crime, psychological thrillers and police procedurals with a good helping of literary fiction thrown in.
