Sabine Durrant's cultural and social references are absolutely contemporary, the brand names and foodie details so plentiful that the novel shades into chick-lit...With a restricted cast of characters and a strong line in nervy undercurrents, the relatively static story is kept tense with subtle twists and inching reveals.

Synopsis

If you loved Gone Girl, then make this page-turning debut next on your reading list: “Sabine Durrant offers more twists than a rollercoaster in her thriller Under Your Skin, which proves you can trust no one” (Good Housekeeping).

Gaby Mortimer is the woman who has it all. But everything changes when she finds a body near her home. She’s shaken and haunted by the image of the lifeless young woman, and frightened that the killer, still at large, could strike again.

Before long, the police have a lead. The evidence points to a very clear suspect. One Gaby never saw coming…

Full of brilliant twists and turns, Under Your Skin is a dark and suspenseful psychological thriller that will make you second guess everything. Because you can never be too sure about anything, especially when it comes to murder.

A decent story and probably Durrant’s best to date, but her decision not to explain the plethora of British references could prove a distraction to American readers.

As the suspense mounts, Durrant skillfully keeps the twisty story on track through convincing characters and domestic detail—right up to the shocking conclusion.

Good
Reviewed by Alison Flood on Apr 06 2013

...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.
